G8Way Technologies to use eSAT Global for tracking endangered species Featured

By

South African IoT device company G8Way Technologies has announced a deal with global satellite IoT connectivity solutions provider eSAT to use eSAT satellites for tracking endangered species.

G8Way is an active participant and proponent in the protection of endangered species across the African continent and has developed a host of sensor solutions which have been implemented in a range of applications from high value asset tracking, animal traceability, cold chain and other security related solutions.

G8Way Technologies CEO, Mischa Slabbert, said “We have been in the IOT industry for a long time now and have had the opportunity to look at, and access, many different connectivity solutions in that time. We had never been quite able to effectively crack some of the difficult issues we have had with animal tracking, whether it be livestock or endangered species.“

“I came across eSAT doing a web search and after talking to them I realised just how useful they could be as a partner. Not only will they provide low cost connectivity, but the planned device size is so small it will easily be accommodated into our devices and the battery life will be extended by years.”

“When you are dealing with large animals like Rhino’s that must be anesthetised, even something as simple as changing a battery can be a risk for the animal. We see a myriad of opportunities to work with eSAT right across Africa.” Rick Somerton, eSAT’s Regional Director ANZ said.

“When Mischa reached out to us looking for a solution, we thought it was just a simple commercial enquiry but the opportunity for us is much greater than that. It will be gratifying for our entire team if our technology is able to play a small role in protecting endangered species. We are making our partnership with G8Way a priority because of the obvious benefits which go well beyond the commercial opportunities we have.”
