The proposition will enable customers of RBC Signals to create their own virtual satellite network by leasing a private slice of Inmarsat's ELERA L-band network, which is optimised for the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT solution providers will gain access to simple, affordable and flexible satellite connectivity, without the need to launch and maintain their own satellite constellations, allowing them to offer innovative IoT solutions to industries everywhere.
RBC Signals' customers will now be able to choose how often and exactly when they require satellite connectivity, paying only for what they need rather than being tied into a long-term leasing contract that could result in underutilised resource. RBC Signals' customers will also have access to the added security of a hardened private network, ensuring a highly secure and reliable platform for end-users.
The successful on-air testing has shown partners can rapidly change beam coverage to meet the individual connectivity needs of businesses. This will support hourly visibility of key assets across rail networks to enable better supply-chain management, or twice weekly control and monitoring of water irrigation systems within the agriculture industry.
Jat Brainch, Chief Commercial and Digital Officer, Inmarsat said: "We're delighted to announce the successful completion of the in-field testing of our IoT Connectivity Leasing with RBC Signals.
Providing truly customer-centric offerings is the key focus for Inmarsat and our IoT Connectivity Leasing solution embodies this, offering IoT solution providers and their customers unparalleled levels of flexibility, cost-effectiveness and reliability. With RBC Signals now ready to provide this offering to its customers, more businesses are set to gain access to the transformational benefits of IoT, to improve operational efficiencies, increase safety levels and even help meet sustainability targets.
"By leveraging our ELERA network as part of this offering, IoT solution providers will benefit from connectivity tailored to their needs, as well as the peace of mind that their IoT solutions are being powered by our ultra-reliable narrowband network".
Christopher Richins, CEO of RBC Signals said: "The IoT market has grown at an exponential rate over the last few years and shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. As appetite for IoT solutions continues - particularly in more remote, rural areas - it is vital that satellite-based solutions are available in cost-efficient formats so all businesses can tap into their potential.
"The successful testing of Inmarsat's IoT Connectivity Leasing solution is an absolute gamechanger across a number of industries, including agriculture, utilities, oil and gas and transportation, and is a significant step forward in making accessible satellite connectivity a reality for all businesses."
