Satellite tracker – an affordable means of security and control of moving objects

Global communications and monitoring with a satellite tracker – affordable satellite phone replacement
At a time when mobile phones had not yet become a mass product, pagers served as their more affordable alternative. And although with the help of a pager it was impossible to just talk, they coped with the task of transmitting important information perfectly. Today, mobile phones have completely replaced pagers both from markets and from our lives, however, if we take on global tasks, the paging principle itself remains very relevant, especially when it comes to travel that affects regions of our planet that are not covered by cellular networks. There will always be plenty of such places, because cellular networks appear only where a large number of users are able to recoup the created infrastructure, which means that in those places where real travelers seek, and where, by definition, there can not be many people, mobile will never appear communications, and, quite naturally, in all such cases it remains to rely only on satellite.

Without a satellite tracker as without hands
Currently, a satellite phone is still unavailable to a wide range of customers and to a greater extent remains a professional means of communication when labor productivity significantly exceeds the cost of satellite Continue reading

Inmarsat Presents Maritime Industry Internet of Things (IIoT) Study

Humanity consumes more and more. Now we are more than ever, we are accustomed to new technologies and constant access to the information that they bring into our lives. This has a significant impact on enterprises operating in the main sectors – agriculture, energy, marine, mining, and transport sectors. Manufacturers are forced to optimize technological and business processes, must track goods from production to the final destination, suppliers must receive as much information as possible about the goods they deliver.

The data generated by such advanced intelligent technologies as the Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the work of entire industries, becoming a new benchmark for business. Now you need to effectively collect information, creating new value for customers, until competitors repulse them. Continue reading
