Satellite M2M Services
Monitor and manage your assets anywhere in the world
For companies operating in remote, unmanned locations, two-way machine to machine communications that provide complete visibility and control of critical asset and equipment data are becoming increasingly important.
Do your assets require around the clock monitoring and management of data in real time to keep your operations running smoothly?
Satellite Machine to Machine (M2M) services are expanding rapidly worldwide, driven by the need for efficient monitoring, control and data acquisition across industries of all kinds. Many M2M services rely on GSM networks, but this can be limited - especially in remote or hard-to-reach areas.
BGAN M2M supports real time, always-on, end-to-end TCP / IP or UDP / IP communication with send / receive data rates of up to 464kbps.
Our M2M portfolio supports real-time data through a range of compact and robust satellite terminals including the Hughes 9201, Hughes BGAN 9502 and iSatData Pro (static and mobile) that are equally suitable to temporary or permanent installations, offering a range of data rates, from store-and-forward to real-time seamless IP connectivity.

What We Bring to the Table
Anyone can sell a modem with monthly service. It's important to understand what separates one M2M solutions provider from another. In one word, it's all about the "Interface" Best way to explain is with a story.
Several years ago one of our customers came to us with a problem they needed help with. Their issue was that they had very large and expensive earth shovels located in remote mining pits in South Africa and no way to send critical diagnostic data from the shovels back to their headquarters in the US. Our customer was spending thousands of dollars sending field technicians to these far away locations every time a problem occurred on the equipment.
This diagnostic data is important because it can reveal potential issues on the shovel and if not discovered early enough, could shut down production and cost thousands of dollars every hour the equipment isn't operating.
With access to real time data through the M2M terminal and our proprietary interface, our customer could now monitor and manage every byte of data flowing from their equipment and if any issues came up, they were immediately notified from the interface by an email and text alert. An expensive problem solved.
Our M2M solutions replace the human being in the field with remote automation.
This sophisticated web based interface is called Remote-Terminal Manager and it enables the end user of a company to remotely access the unmanned M2M equipment in the field in real time. This platform allows an end user to activate an IP session, close down/disconnect an IP session, provide identifying information which terminals are online/offline, provide detailed information on signal strength and in which Inmarsat’s spotbeam the M2M equipment is located. This information is extremely valuable in troubleshooting a remote issue.
The Remote Terminal Manager also provides the latest position report for an individual site or all sites combined on one map/screen. This interface can automatically provide alerts when a terminal is used outside of its intended area, as well as automatically shut the terminal down until the issue is investigated further.
