Why purchase from Ground Control?

Ground Control offers very competitive satellite airtime service plans, tailored to your individual data and connectivity requirements, ensuring that you get the best service plan at the best rates for your usage.

We can almost certainly save you money. We have access to very competitive tariffs with all of our airtime providers, thanks to the stability and longevity of our relationships.

No surprises on your bill. Cloudloop gives real-time data about your data usage, and you can set up alerts for specified thresholds. Plus you can programmatically suspend devices that go over their limit.

We make it easy for you to activate, suspend and deactivate your devices remotely - either through our Cloudloop platform, or through integration with your own platform.

To move your airtime to us, simply let us know the IMEIs of your devices, and we can organise the swap. If they are with another provider you will just need to ask them to deactivate any current contracts, and they can then be immediately activated on our systems.

Manage your data

If you own or operate satellite equipment, Cloudloop will provide you with a single place to manage your contracts and analyse your usage. We offer low-cost tariffs, a web-based interface and a full featured API.

As a huge plus, our Cloudloop platform lets you remotely activate, suspend and deactivate your devices, see data usage and costs in real time, and view historical reports. You can access your data easily with low latency APIs for message consumption, too.

Reduce your airtime costs

Ground Control has been working with Inmarsat and Iridium, our key satellite airtime partners, for well over a decade, and as a result, we have access to extremely competitively priced tariffs, and can also be very flexible in terms of bundled data.

In addition to a great price, you'll also gain access to Cloudloop, which we believe to be the best data, device and subscription management platform available today. Just call or email us, or complete the form, and we'll be happy to provide you with advice and/or a quote, as needed.
