"In addition, the Altair field-proven, ultra-low-power, and ultra-small chipset solutions are ideal for the type of data exchange for industrial use cases,” added Feldman.
The IoT architecture uses Bluetooth and WiFi to connect existing sensors to the Skylo Hub portable satellite NB-IoT antenna terminal using existing communications protocols. Adding Skylo’s satellite connectivity is a seamless extension for customers that, in addition to terrestrial networks, can now use satellite connectivity, virtually in any place on the planet. The volume production of the Sony cellular IoT chipsets means Skylo can affordably manufacture the Hub with an end cost of under US$100.
Skylo is launching commercially this year over South Asia aiming at sensors and machines in remote areas across a wide range of industries, including agriculture, fishing, railways, logistics, utility infrastructure, and more.
