What is Satellite IoT?

Extending the Reach of IoT

Whether you are in energy, maritime, banking, retail, oil and gas, environment monitoring, or farming, having continuous access to an Internet of Things platform service is essential for your business.

But, what happens when your devices can no longer access a cellular connection? Terrestrial cellular networks now reach 90% of the world's population but cover only 15% of the earth's surface. So devices losing access to a reliable cellular connection is a genuine challenge for modern IoT applications.

Soracom's Satellite IoT Messaging Service, which is currently powered by our launch partner Astrocast, connects your M2M devices and sensors when they are located in areas with limited or no cellular connectivity. Our native support for satellite messaging allows SMBs, SMEs and enterprise customers to manage SatIoT connections and billing directly through the Soracom platform, whatever their use case.

Satellite Messaging Use Cases

Soracom’s Satellite IoT Messaging service is intended for use in many different IoT systems. With low data traffic volume, it's ideal for outdoor use where reliable cellular connectivity isn't an option.

Assets may need to be tracked at sea, in deserts, or other remote areas. In the absence of terrestrial cellular or wireless networks, satellite connectivity is an option.

Asset Tracking

Track the weather's impact on your crop ecosystem, or monitor the health of livestock to detect and anticipate any challenges to their living conditions.

Smart Farming

Farms in remote areas are artificially supplied with water from outside sources to meet weather and agricultural needs. Satellite messaging can be used as part of the irrigation system to facilitate these demands.

Irrigation Systems

With cellular networks only covering 15% of the earth's surface, Satellite messaging could be the perfect solution for your own custom use case. Connect With Us about your connectivity requirements today!

What Soracom Customers Say

“The ability to manage our devices around the world using a centralised interface, regardless of the connectivity behind it, is a massive benefit.”

Pascal Lavaur Founder, Go4ioT

“I am certain that we would not have been able to deliver such an exceptional solution to our customers without the Soracom team.”

Daniel Daoura Founder and CEO, Pebblebee

“We tested other IoT providers, but none could match the international roaming coverage, prices, and the developer friendliness of the Soracom Console.”
