Inmarsat, (LSE:ISAT.L), the leading provider of global mobile satellite communications services, has further strengthened its rapidly expanding machine-to-machine (M2M) distribution channel through the appointment of RacoWireless as a global Distribution Partner for its award-winning IsatData Pro service.
RacoWireless is a leading provider of wireless data solutions to the M2M industry with a strong focus on the North American market and, following recent acquisitions, a growing presence in Latin America. The company will incorporate IsatData Pro into its comprehensive portfolio of M2M-focused solutions and services. It is expected that IsatData Pro will become one of RacoWireless’ primary network solutions for Latin America’s growing fleet management market, enabling M2M users to enhance the efficiency and ensure the safety and security of their fixed and mobile assets in regions not covered by terrestrial telecommunications infrastructure.
RacoWireless will integrate Inmarsat’s award-winning M2M service into its Omega Management Suite (OMS). OMS serves as a cloud-based dashboard, featuring powerful tools for global device management that enable RacoWireless’ network of more than 1,000 solution providers to control and leverage intelligence from remotely connected devices, when and where required.
Joel Schroeder, Director, M2M Strategy & Market Development within Inmarsat’s Enterprise Business Unit, said: “Satellite connectivity services are swiftly becoming an essential component within the expanding M2M market, enabling solution providers to extend the reach and resilience of their M2M networks to virtually any region on Earth.
“RacoWireless represents a new generation of partner for Inmarsat; one that brings M2M expertise into the sales channel and provides access to new market segments which have not traditionally deployed satellite connectivity as part of their M2M offering. With RacoWireless’ outstanding platform and customer support, satellite services are now opened up to virtually any solutions and service provider, regardless of size.”
John Horn, President of RacoWireless, said: “Our mission is to make it easy for companies across the world to build, deploy and manage M2M solutions in virtually any industry sector. The addition of Inmarsat’s global satellite network into OMS allows our partners the ability to have the coverage where and when they most need it.”
“The relationship with Inmarsat enables our partners to extend the reach of their network to sites outside the scope of their existing terrestrial network partners, without the need to invest in additional infrastructure. It also allows for the deployment of a truly global M2M solution through a single platform.”
It is anticipated that Inmarsat’s newest distribution partner will add the Broadband Global Area Network (BGAN) M2M service to its portfolio in due course.

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.

As-a-service models offer huge opportunities, but also complicate security. It may seem that the easiest way to migrate to a new architectural model is to let others, experts in their field, do the work. This has given rise to many as-a-service models throughout the industry and across the entire technology stack, from software to infrastructure. While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, will look at di...
