Generally termed the “Internet of Things” or “IoT”, a host of applications are being enabled by
advancements of sophisticated sensors, tracking technology, actuators, and especially data connectivity technologies.
The benefits of wirelessly connected technologies are well understood in applications such as:
Two critical considerations in deployment are key to the success of IoT deployments: the total cost to the end user, and the reach of the connectivity. Less than 5% of the earth’s surface is served by terrestrial connectivity technologies such as Wi-Fi, cellular (4G: NB-IoT and LTE-M), SigFox, and LoRa. Satellite-based connectivity technologies, while having far better reach, have so far not captured large market share due to high cost of service and expensive and bulky equipment. Until now end users requiring global coverage could not find satellite connectivity solutions with costs comparable to terrestrial technologies. eSAT eliminates this cost constraint.
