Inmarsat Becomes First Satellite Network for RacoWireless’ Multi-Network M2M Service

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.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
