M2M Monitoring Services a Growing Trend for Satellite Usage
[Via Satellite 02-13-2014] Satellite connectivity solutions are expanding into less visible industries. Beyond wearable technology and expanded access to smartphones and personal devices, the need for remote monitoring technology is driving demand for solutions to exist where people are not overly present. SkyWave, an M2M service provider, sees companies using satellite to increase their presence in underpopulated areas.
By leveraging satellite, companies are able to receive a steady stream of information about the status of their resources and infrastructure. Though not flawless, satellite-enabled machines can provide regularly scheduled status updates with a high degree of accuracy and can catch details that might be otherwise overlooked. SkyWave, who has seen much of its recent growth in utilities and oil and gas markets, has noticed the increase in enterprise level use of these M2M technologies.
