Seven IoT providers choose EchoStar satellite network

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 IoT network based on LoRa technology.

Selection of IoT providers

API-K, Cyric, DalesLandNet, Dryad, Galaxy1, ProEsys and Symes are using the real-time network to massively deploy IoT for applications such as personal outdoor geosecurity, soil moisture monitoring, ultra-early forest fire detection, utility metering and pipeline monitoring.

Telemako Melia, vice president and general manager of EchoStar Mobile, thanked these customers for choosing the EchoStar Mobile IoT network to meet their real-time, bi-directional sensor connectivity needs.

“These deployments validate our value proposition to customers by seamlessly integrating into their existing IoT ecosystem, achieving ubiquitous service continuity for our customers without requiring expensive terrestrial infrastructure.”

EchoStar XXI satellite

Compatible with Semtech Corporation’s LoRa-enabled wireless platform for device connectivity, the powerful EchoStar XXI S-band geostationary satellite provides ubiquitous two-way connectivity across Europe without the need for roaming agreements between geographic regions.

To add satellite capabilities to their IoT solutions, customers can easily retrofit existing commercial devices with the low-power, compact, dual-mode, low-power EchoStar Mobile EM2050 satellite-to-ground module.

About EchoStar

EchoStar has been awarded the IoT Business Impact Award 2023 for the pan-European IoT network by IoT Evolution magazine, the leading publication covering IoT technologies.

EchoStar Mobile Limited is EchoStar’s subsidiary in Europe, which operates a network of mobile satellite systems (MSS) using the EchoStar XXI geostationary satellite.

Globally, EchoStar is developing a constellation of low-earth-orbit S-band satellites called EchoStar Lyra to support IoT connectivity as the company explores the possibility of a global 5G S-band terrestrial network.
