In a landmark collaboration, Blues, renowned for its prowess in Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technology, has teamed up with Skylo Technologies, a prominent Non-Terrestrial Network (NTN) service operator, to unveil Starnote. This innovative extension to Blues' flagship product, Notecard, is set to redefine satellite data connectivity, offering an efficient and cost-effective solution for global connectivity challenges.

Starnote emerges as a game-changer, providing customers with a reliable backup satellite connectivity option. This ensures uninterrupted connectivity for devices even when they wander beyond the reach of conventional cellular coverage. Designed to integrate seamlessly with the existing Notecard system, Starnote offers automatic satellite fallback for a wide array of connectivity technologies including LTE Cat-M, LTE Cat-1, NB-IoT, GPRS, and Wi-Fi.

Ray Ozzie, the Founder and CEO of Blues, emphasized the transformative potential of Starnote, stating, "For developers and enterprises everywhere, satellite connectivity is now a viable option. Starnote is breaking new ground by providing continuous satellite coverage with low data usage costs and no monthly usage fees or minimums." This initiative represents a significant departure from the prohibitive costs traditionally associated with satellite connectivity, which have historically limited its application to high-cost, low-volume products.

The collaboration between Blues and Skylo Technologies is poised to address the pressing need for reliable cloud connectivity in remote and underserved areas. Industries such as smart agriculture, marine telematics, global logistics, and oil and gas have long faced challenges in maintaining connectivity due to the high costs and complexity of satellite solutions. Starnote promises to eliminate these barriers, offering an accessible and affordable satellite IoT solution.

Tarun Gupta, Chief Product Officer and Co-Founder at Skylo Technologies, shared his enthusiasm for the partnership, noting, "By incorporating satellite data into its regular IoT devices, Blues is able to bring an unprecedented amount of innovation into the IoT ecosystem." Skylo's ability to leverage existing satellite constellations for continuous and contiguous coverage is a critical element of this partnership, enabling devices to connect and send data anytime, bypassing the limitations of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) constellations.

The introduction of Starnote is a testament to Blues' innovative approach to satellite IoT, building upon the successful business model of its cellular Notecard product. By eliminating monthly fees and providing pre-paid data sufficient for a year or more, Starnote offers a compelling solution for businesses and developers seeking to deploy remote monitoring and control solutions without the constraints of coverage limitations.

This partnership marks a significant milestone in the evolution of satellite IoT connectivity, promising to unlock new possibilities for industries requiring reliable, cost-effective solutions for remote connectivity. As Blues and Skylo Technologies move forward with this ambitious project, the landscape of global connectivity is set to undergo a profound transformation, enabling unprecedented levels of innovation and accessibility in the IoT ecosystem.
