OnLogic | November 01, 2021

Industrial computer hardware manufacturer and IoT solution provider, OnLogic , has announced the availability of their first devices to feature global cellular connectivity from IoT solution provider UROS. OnLogic computers with the UROS Connect eSIM solution are able to transmit and receive data, without the need for Wi-Fi or tethering, across a wide range of global cellular networks. The combination of OnLogic hardware and UROS Connect is exceptionally easy to use, reliable and secure. Setting up the connection requires little effort and limited technical expertise.

"Connectivity is the key to IoT and Edge computing. With UROS Connect, we're offering a new way for our clients to easily connect their devices and manage their data from a single dashboard. Digital transformation involves a lot of moving parts, both literally and figuratively. With UROS Connect, even huge networks of devices that span multiple regions, countries and carriers can get up and running quickly and stay connected."

Maxx Garrison, OnLogic Product Manager

UROS Connect eSIM functionality enables a single physical SIM card to be installed in OnLogic computers to provide connectivity across multiple international regions, reducing logistic complexity while taking advantage of the best available cellular network depending on which part of the world the computer is located in. This new capability offers far reaching benefits for businesses with international locations or solution providers serving clients around the world.

Advantages of OnLogic computers with UROS Connect include:
  • Global Connectivity - UROS offers support for more than 170 countries with a single SIM card.
  • Enhanced Visibility - Monitor and remotely manage an entire network of connected devices with the UROS Connect dashboard, which is essentially fleet management for cellular connected devices.
  • Adaptive Pricing - The UROS solution has been built with the Internet of Things in mind. Users pay 1 euro for the first 10 MB of data transmitted and then only for what is needed, when it's needed, with no contracts.

"We are thrilled to work with OnLogic to enable industrial PCs with eSIM connectivity, and we see a lot of demand for these solutions as we talk about different industry 4.0 applications and global connectivity", says Jan Lattunen, UROS CCO and President for Americas.

OnLogic has offered pre-configured 4G cellular connectivity to their US customers since 2017. This partnership with UROS now provides OnLogic hardware users with an international cellular connectivity solution out of the box.

Rocket Lab Lands Multi-Launch Deal to Deploy Entire IoT Satellite Constellation for Kineis

Rocket Lab, Kineis | September 13, 2021

Rocket Lab USA, Inc, a leading launch provider and space systems company, today announced it has been awarded a contract to deploy an entire satellite constellation across five dedicated Electron missions for Kinéis, a global Internet-of-Things (IoT) connectivity provider. Scheduled for launch beginning in the second quarter of 2023, the constellation will enable Kinéis, a company backed by private and public investors including the French government’s space agency CNES (Centre National d'Études Spatiales) and CLS (Collecte Localisation Satellites) an international space-based solutions provider, to improve its global IoT connectivity. The multi-launch contract with Kinéis, which is subject to standard termination and launch rescheduling provisions, follows a similar bulk buy of launches earlier this year to deploy nine satellites across five dedicated Electron missions as part of a constellation for BlackSky, a provider of real-time geospatial intelligence and global monitoring services. Kinéis CEO, Alexandre Tisserant, says: “We are glad to entrust our constellation of 25 satellites to Rocket Lab. They are the leaders in small satellite launch and the obvious choice as launch partner to activate our constellation at such a pace. We designed and developed our 25 satellites in record time with the support of CNES, Thalès Alénia Space and HEMERIA in order to deliver a full new operational service to our existing and future customers - we are now eagerly counting down to first launch in 2023!” The proven accuracy and reliability of Electron’s Kick Stage in successfully deploying 100+ satellites to date was a decisive factor in Kinéis selecting Rocket Lab as its launch partner. The Kick Stage will act as an orbital transfer vehicle to deliver each satellite in the Kinéis constellation to their precise orbital planes at a 650km altitude, allowing Kinéis to avoid sacrificing spacecraft mass for propulsion and to begin a fully operational service as quickly as possible. Rocket Lab founder and CEO, Peter Beck, says: “We’re thrilled to be Kinéis’ launch partner and look forward to delivering their constellation across five dedicated missions in quick succession. Deploying an entire constellation and having it operational quickly requires each satellite to be deployed to exactly the right orbit. Rocket Lab’s track record of exceptional orbital deployment accuracy provides Kinéis with that assurance. By taking care of in-space transport, the Kick Stage makes life much easier for satellite constellation operators, enabling them to maximize spacecraft mass for their payload.” Kinéis currently operates the Argos system, an international scientific collaboration between CNES, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) and the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), to monitor wildlife, fisheries, and to collect data about Earth’s climate and environment through CLS. Kinéis’ new constellation will complete the current system with more powerful 30kg-class nanosats that integrate IoT technology and a ship-tracking Automatic Identification System (AIS). Once deployed, this technology will allow Kinéis to expand across multiple industries and scale from 20,000 devices connected to millions. In addition to these missions, Rocket Lab will further contribute to the international Argos system with another upcoming Electron launch. Rocket Lab is the launch provider for the Argos-4 mission for General Atomics, which is developing the satellite for the United States Space Force on behalf of NOAA. That mission is currently scheduled to launch early 2022. About Rocket Lab Rocket Lab is a global leader in space, building rockets and spacecraft that make it easier to get to orbit and to do amazing things there. Founded in 2006, Rocket Lab provides end-to-end mission services that provide frequent and reliable access to space for civil, defense, and commercial markets. Headquartered in Long Beach, California, Rocket Lab designs and manufactures the Electron launch vehicles and Photon satellite platform and is developing the Neutron launch vehicle.
