Why enterprise is waking up to the value of satellite connectivity for IoT

“Ethernet, Wi-Fi, and cellular networks are necessary but not sufficient: by themselves, they cannot provide the redundancy, global coverage, low latency, and reliability that are prerequisites for what is now an essential Internet of Things infrastructure. The missing piece of the network is a satellite-based Internet of Things communications architecture. Or, rather, it was the missing piece.” – Kevin Ashton, the inventor of the term ‘Internet of Things’.

75% of IoT decision makers polled struggle to deploy their IoT projects because of issues with their connectivity.

Today, satellite connectivity is the only method of ensuring high and narrow bandwidth, reliable connectivity at the required latency anywhere - and everywhere - in the world.

It is finding growing favour among organisations that rely on global connections to power their IoT initiatives.

This new white paper, created specifically for experts from across the IoT ecosystem shines a light on why satellite connectivity is becoming essential for the successful deployment of at-scale IoT projects.

What’s inside this white paper:

  • An introduction to the IoT connectivity sector by Kevin Ashton
  • An analysis of the satellite IoT sector, including market sizing and the latest sector projections
  • Demystifying today’s satellite landscape – from nanosatellites to mega-constellations, and LEO, MEO and GEO explained
  • Battle of the bands – evaluating satellite frequencies and why L-band is particularly suited to IoT applications
  • The role of satellite IoT within a wider connectivity ecosystem
  • Satellite IoT in action – a tour of some of the cutting-edge use cases across key industries where satellite IoT is delivering tangible business benefits
