Skylo And Inmarsat Partner To Enable World’s First Commercial Narrowband IoT Over Satellite Solution


The solution is available now in India through a partnership with in-country partner BSNL

Satellite-based narrow-band (NB) IoT solution company Skylo Technologies has announced its partnership with London-based satellite telecom company Inmarsat, which will provide the satellite capacity backbone to deliver Skylo’s IoT solutions for connecting machines and sensors. 

“The agreement pairs Inmarsat’s exceptionally reliable global satellite network with a complete, easy-to-use IoT solution that provides even the most remotely located application users with real-time, actionable insights; helping improve efficiencies, increase profits, improve sustainability, and save lives,” the company said in a release.  

The solution is available now in India through a partnership with in-country partner BSNL. The company added that expansion plans will be announced later this year.

“The most effective IoT solutions require a truly resilient and flexible network that can scale as demand grows,” said Rajeev Suri, Inmarsat Chief Executive Officer. 

“Inmarsat’s industry-leading L-band network provides a unique capability for enabling the billions of connected IoT devices in India and across the world that are being deployed at an extraordinary speed.  We are delighted to work with Skylo to provide the IoT fabric that matches their ambition.”

Skylo CEO and co-founder Parth Trivedi said, “Even more attractive than a sharp increase in adoption due to low barrier-to-entry, is deploying critical new business capabilities as machine data becomes readily available and accessible. Our global IoT connectivity fabric makes way for thousands of life-changing applications — from managing vaccine efficacy during delivery to advancing precision farming, to providing early warnings in the event of natural disasters. We look forward to expanding globally and making our platform available to small and large enterprises, companies deploying new sensors, systems integrators, distributors, governments and OEMs.”

Skylo’s solutions help customers receive continuous coverage to send and receive critical 2-way messaging, alerts, and continuously transmit valuable sensor data including location, soil moisture, soil pH, temperature, and much more.
