Inmarsat IsatData Pro
Inmarsat Satellite Communications for M2M Applications
Inmarsat is the world's leading provider of global mobile satellite communications for machine-to-machine (M2M) and other applications. With over 30 years of experience providing service over land, sea and air, Inmarsat services are delivered through the most versatile and reliable satellite network in the world. The recently launched Inmarsat I-4 satellites, unlike many other satellite networks, are expected to continue in commercial operation beyond 2023.
IsatData Pro is a jointly developed service that teams SkyWave's range of terminals with Inmarsat's global L-band satellite network to offer the highest payload and lowest latency of any L-band satellite store-and-forward service. Because SkyWave's IsatData Pro service operates in the L-band spectrum, it offers 99.9% network availability and a ubiquitous, resilient and flexible solution for remote, unmanned locations. The network is also not subject to rain fade or impacted by other harsh weather conditions. L-band also allows for a high degree of antenna pointing tolerance, simplifying installation and adding to the reliability of unmanned terminals in an open environment.
Inmarsat owns and operates 11 satellites in geostationary orbit 35,786 km above the earth. These satellites are managed from the Inmarsat headquarters in London and via ground stations located around the globe.
Inmarsat is synonymous with reliability and its products are found in the maritime, media, oil and gas, construction and aeronautical industries. They are also used by governments and aid agencies for mission critical communications.
