SkyWave Mobile Communications, a provider of wireless data communications for the Machine-to-Machine (M2M) market, along with ILS Technology, an enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT), have announced the technology collaboration between SkyWave’s IsatData Pro satellite network and ILS Technology’s deviceWISE M2M Platform.
The joint technology collaboration will reportedly focus on efforts targeting the scada market that will enable intelligent, reliable and secure connectivity from remote field assets to enterprise applications (i.e. scada, MES, MRO, CRM) in an integrated tool set. The initiative enables, the company claims, process and business decisions based on real-time data not limited to wire line or cellular communication with the reliable, secure, plug-and -play satellite option. Graphical design tools reportedly provide intuitive ‘click-to-configure’ capabilities to seamlessly integrate to enterprise applications with no coding required. The joint technology provides, the company claims, primary or back-up connectivity for new or existing implementations.
SkyWave’s IsatData Pro is reportedly used across the utilities and oil and gas industry in a wide range of telematics applications. Applications include the remote monitoring of process equipment such as measuring critical field parameters for pressure, flow rate and temperature, etc. Working with a network of solution providers, SkyWave reportedly serves some of the largest oil and gas companies around the world.
“SkyWave is committed to providing customers with the ability to leverage high performance satellite connectivity in their business infrastructure,” said Tom Blackwell, SkyWave’s Vice President of M2M Business. “We continue to add value for organisations using SkyWave products by bringing comprehensive technology with leading partners like ILS Technology to the market. These partnerships complement our business offering with the ability to integrate machine data with seamless integration to back office applications, significantly reducing risk, cost and development times.”
ILS Technology’s deviceWISE M2M Platform reportedly provides a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use tool that helps customers transform raw data into actionable events that can be bi-directionally exchanged with applications without any added infrastructure or programming.
“We are excited to be working alongside SkyWave, a recognised global leader in the world of satellite communications to complement our strong relationships with the cellular carriers. The partnership provides a footprint ensuring 100% global coverage for mission critical applications,” said Fred Yentz, President and CEO ILS Technology. “Offering our customers a highly reliable satellite communication option with our deviceWISE M2M platform, will help us to better respond to the growing demand for enterprise and scada integration across a variety of markets.”
