The combined market reach of cellular and satellite IoT communications is set to disrupt the technology landscape. According to the Ericsson Mobility Report (2022), cellular IoT connections are projected to surge from 0.5 billion in 2016 to around 5.5 billion by 2028. Simultaneously, the Satellite IoT Communications Market report by Berg Insights forecasts a tripling of the satellite IoT market by 2025.

Although these domains have flourished independently, the collaboration between u-blox and ORBCOMM promises to harness the power of convergence. By seamlessly integrating ORBCOMM’s satellite communication protocols into u-blox’s UBX-R52/S52 LPWA modem SoC, a new era of IoT connectivity is dawning. The result is a highly optimized chipset that is compact, cost-effective, and offers dual connectivity capabilities.

This innovation is set to reshape industries by providing seamless IoT solutions across the globe. u-blox’s future module products, backed by the UBX-R52/S52 chipset, will enable IoT connectivity in even the most remote and previously unreachable locations.

Martin Leach, Head of Product Center Cellular at u-blox, emphasizes the groundbreaking nature of this partnership. Integrating satellite protocol support alongside cellular protocols widens the scope of IoT applications, opening doors to previously underserved regions and industries.

David Roscoe, ORBCOMM’s Executive Vice President of Satellite Communications and Products, highlights the game-changing aspect of this collaboration. By combining ORBCOMM’s satellite technology with u-blox’s innovative chipset, IoT deployments across supply chains, heavy equipment, agriculture, and more can now harness unparalleled coverage, simplicity, reliability, and longevity.

The alliance between u-blox and ORBCOMM has the potential to reshape IoT connectivity, empowering industries across the spectrum. This convergence promises to bridge the gap between remote and challenging environments, ensuring IoT’s transformative capabilities can thrive anywhere on Earth.

The impact of this partnership extends to diverse industries. Applications such as logistics, retail, manufacturing, agriculture, construction, mining, and livestock tracking, among others, will benefit from the seamless connectivity and reliability this alliance brings.

In a world increasingly reliant on IoT data, u-blox and ORBCOMM’s partnership is poised to redefine how industries operate and innovate, ushering in a new era of connectivity and technological possibility.
