How it works

We connect any data producing sensor, device, machine or vehicle
Inmarsat Managed IoT Service
  • Edge connectivity
    With more end points producing data than ever before, the right kind of edge connectivity is paramount. We use Long Range Wide Area Networks (LoRaWAN), Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) and Bluetooth Low Energy to efficiently gather all of your key data points at the edge.
  • Software defined gateways
    We use software defined gateways allowing you to easily add multiple use cases and edge connectivity types, aggregate data intelligently at the edge, control security and patching with embedded applications, so you get a seamless and agile IoT experience.
  • Backhaul connectivity
    Once the right data has been aggregated it needs to be sent securely toward customer applications. Depending on customer need this could involve a blend of Inmarsat's highly reliable L-band satellite, cellular, fibre or other satellite connectivity.
