Expand coverage and two-way communication services
Telecommunications are relied upon by billions each day for reliable, high-speed internet data transfer, real-time video streaming from remote locations around the world, and to enable mission-critical military communications to prevent loss of life. Over 2,000 artificial satellites facilitate these telecommunication services when users are out of reach of cellular and fibre networks.
For these users in remote and off-grid areas, satellite services enable internet access and two-way communication including VoIP calls, SMS messaging and streaming live video. These can be a lifeline for critical comms and application services such as emergency response and military operations.

Keeping you, your people, and your assets connected when the grid stops
Enhanced remote team connectivity
The number of people who work from home has increased a 115% since 2005 according to Global Workplace Analytics. Satellite connectivity enables monitoring, tracking and control of remote sites and the remote workers operating at those sites. Without digital communication solutions, many remote sites would become inefficient and ineffective to operate.
Enhanced tracking logistics
The development of IoT and M2M has enabled businesses to go beyond the basics of GPS location asset tracking. Remote tracking now provides end-to-end in-transit visibility including exposure to shock, light or heightened temperatures or humidity, for advanced freight and logistics handling and efficient transportation services across the world.
Critical security peace of mind
From a security perspective, telecommunication is one of the most crucial infrastructures for protection against cyber-attack. From highly confidential remote monitoring applications to classified military operations, there are a number of scenarios that rely on digital communication solutions to deliver robust cyber security, and overall personnel safety.

BGAN M2M – a Reliable, Global Satellite Data Service for Asset-Monitoring and Control
Monitoring and control systems in remote, unmanned locations require a reliable and cost-effective communications service to collect and transmit data to operations centres for further processing.
Capturing Scientific Data from the Arctic and Antarctic
With the growing need to secure new data from remote and inhospitable areas of scientific interest, Ground Control saw an upsurge in its Iridium satellite communication products being used for environmental science applications in both the Arctic and Antarctic.
Could your Business Achieve More with Better Connectivity?
In this webinar, we dismantle the perception that satellite for IoT is too costly, fragile or insecure to be effective, and give real-life examples of where the extra data provided by satellite IoT connectivity has materially improved outcomes – from smart farming to disaster management, environmental monitoring to renewable energy production.
Far-Sighted Satellite Solutions for Constant Connectivity
We can now establish optimal communications to and from even the most inaccessible areas on land, on sea and in the skies, while contributing directly to the reduction of international carbon emissions.
Lone worker safety: a snapshot of operations in North America
Survey reveals 19% of lone workers have struggled to get help after an accident. Learn how lone workers can remain safe and connected when out of cellular range.
Remote Environmental Monitoring
Ephemeral washes located in Southeastern Arizona, USA, contribute to large rivers like the San Pedro, and are used by the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) to gather data on contaminants which impact larger bodies of water downstream.
Resolving the Data Communications Challenge for Water and Wastewater Service Providers
The provision of water to homes and businesses as well as wastewater treatment is essential. In fact, water utility companies need to provide billions of litres of fresh water to residential and commercial customers and to recycle equal amounts every day.
The Challenge of Remote Locations for the Renewables Industry
Renewable energy generation sites for hydro, wind and solar farms can often be in remote or hostile locations. There are many challenges in providing data backhaul from such sites, whether they’re in the development or deployment stages.
