The partnership combines Inmarsat’s global connectivity with Actility’s ThingPark IoT management platform to deliver an integrated solution for IoT, linking connectivity, services and IoT devices from a single application and service management point, to connect objects deployed anywhere, even in the most remote and hostile locations.
Actility is a founding member of the LoRa Alliance, a non-profit organisation that promotes the connectivity standard LoRaWAN for Low Power Wide Area networks (LPWAN).
Inmarsat recently announced its membership in the LoRa Alliance and partnership with Actility means that assets that use the LoRa standard can now be connected over Inmarsat’s global networks for seamless integration and interoperability, even in areas where cellular or terrestrial coverage is unavailable or unreliable.
“This partnership enables additional flexibility for IoT networks - meaning systems integrators and customers using Inmarsat’s connectivity and Actility’s solution - to connect all of their assets on one platform, without having to spend the time and resource dealing with multiple connectivity providers, or the cost and complexity of multiple roaming agreements. It also puts Inmarsat in closer proximity to the wider IoT market.”
“Actility is thrilled to be collaborating with Inmarsat to provide global customers with an end to end solution and a single service management point to connect their assets and fulfill their IoT business needs anywhere in the world with our ThingPark LoRaWAN platform,” said Olivier Hersent, CEO & CTO at Actility.
