EchoStar Corporation (Nasdaq: SATS) announced today that seven leading European Internet of Things (IoT) service providers have signed multi-year commercial agreements to develop and sell IoT solutions using EchoStar Mobile's Pan-European, satellite based, LoRa®-enabled IoT network. The customers, API-K, Cyric, DalesLandNet, Dryad, Galaxy1, ProEsys and Symes are leveraging the real-time network to enable massive IoT deployments for applications such as outdoor personal geo-safety, soil moisture monitoring, ultra-early forest fire detection, utility metering and pipeline monitoring.
"We thank these innovative customers for choosing the EchoStar Mobile IoT network to meet their requirements for real-time, bi-directional sensor connectivity across agritech, utility, consumer recreational tracking and environmental markets," said Telemaco Melia, vice president and general manager, EchoStar Mobile. "These deployments validate our customer value proposition by integrating seamlessly into the existing IoT ecosystem, achieving ubiquitous service continuity for our customers without requiring expensive terrestrial infrastructure."
Compatible with Semtech Corporation's LoRa-enabled wireless platform for device connectivity, the powerful, geostationary, EchoStar XXI S-band satellite delivers pervasive, two-way connectivity seamlessly across Europe without requiring roaming agreements across geographies. To add the satellite capability to their IoT solutions, customers can upgrade existing commercially deployed devices easily with the low power and compact EchoStar Mobile EM2050 dual-mode satellite-terrestrial module.
EchoStar received a 2023 IoT Business Impact Award for the Pan-European IoT Network from IoT Evolution magazine, the leading publication covering IoT technologies.
"It is my pleasure to recognize EchoStar's Pan-European LoRa-enabled IoT network, an innovative solution that earned EchoStar the 2023 Business Impact Award," said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "I look forward to seeing more successful deployments of best-in-class solutions from EchoStar in the future."
