Wyld Networks and ATSS sign agreement to deploy sensor to satellite connected IoT solutions across Saudi Arabia

Virtual satellite operator Wyld Networks has announce a partnership with ATSS, a Saudi Arabian IoT, IIoT, satellite and communications and systems integration company that produces solutions for manufacturing, agriculture, logistics, energy, and utilities.

ATSS operates and manages more than 200 National and Regional Corporate Networks via its Hub located in Jeddah. Their IoT and IIoT digital platforms are empowered by cutting-edge Data Analytics, AI and ML engines to provide actionable insights and operational critical decision-making.

ATSS belongs to the Mawarid Media & Communications Group (MMCG) family of companies. ATSS deliver enterprise systems integration services to empower the Government and Private organisations to be more productive and successful and to develop Smart & Secure technologies and services and Business ICT agendas, in line with the Kingdom’s 2030 Vision.

With Wyld Networks ability to connect both terrestrial and satellite networks using LoRaWAN, the partnership will enable IoT coverage for 100% of Saudi Arabia and the wider region. Connecting sensors and devices directly to low earth orbiting satellites and integrating with existing LoRaWAN terrestrial networks will deliver comprehensive data collection solutions for ATSS’s customers even in hard to reach and previously inaccessible areas of the region.

“As more and more data is being sought by organisations a solution for remote and difficult to access IoT devices has been elusive,” says Eng. Abdullah AlOsaimi, CEO of ATSS. “The Wyld Networks team have developed a solution that delivers global coverage, and we are excited to be working with Wyld to bring this capability to our customers.”

“Across multiple verticals, systems integrators are looking to provide increased date flow to their customers” says Alastair Williamson, CEO of Wyld Networks. “Wyld are delighted to be partnering with ATSS to connect this data via low earth orbiting satellites.”

The Internet of Things is a significant component of government policy as well as corporate strategy, but connectivity needs to be accessible and affordable both achievable with satellite IoT.
