By CIOReview | Tuesday, February 23, 2016

FREMONT, CA: Inmarsat and Actility announced collaboration to serve end-to-end IoT solution across the globe, connecting both public and private networks. The former is a British satellite company that is now a leading name in mobile satellite communications since past three decades. Actility is a founding member of LoRa alliance pioneer in Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) solutions.

The companies are inter-connecting their IoT platform through Inmarsat’s global with Actility’s ThingPark to develop an integrated IoT solution over remote and hostile locations on earth. The companies plan to link through their respective IoT hardware through a single application and service management point.

 Greg Ewert, President, Inmarsat Enterprise said, “This partnership enables additional flexibility for IoT networks – meaning system integrators and customers using Inmarsat’s connectivity and Actility’s solution – to connect all of their assets on one platform, without having to spend the time and resource dealing with multiple connectivity providers, or the cost and complexity of multiple roaming agreements. It also puts Inmarsat in closer proximity to the wider IoT market.” Ewert confirms, “Inmarsat already has a long and successful history in providing remote connectivity.” 

Olivier Hersent, CEO & CTO of Actility comments, “Actility is thrilled to be collaborating with Inmarsat to provide global customers with an end to end solution and a single service management point to connect their assets and fulfill their IoT business needs anywhere in the world with our ThingPark™ LoRaWAN platform.”

Recently, Inmarsat also declared membership with LoRa alliance, an open non-profit organization that believes IoT is free and promotes LoRaWAN for Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) for connections. This partnership will set sail for LoRa to connect with Inmarsat’s global networks delivering high end terrestrial coverage.

Both the partnerships set sail the advent of global high end IoT reach with pocket friendly IoT sensors and applications.
