Satellite connectivity provider Sateliot has joined the largest trade organisation serving the IoT sector – the IoT M2M Council (IMC) – to raise awareness of its novel technology that seamlessly combines Low-Earth-Orbit (LEO) satellite connectivity with more traditional cellular networks and for the first time in history under standard 5G protocol.

Sateliot provides connectivity for off-the-shelf, unmodified 5G NB-IoT devices covering 100% of the Earth. The IMC is comprised of 25,000 product makers/designers and enterprise users that deploy IoT solutions in a wide range of vertical markets around the globe.

“Our solution allows the same few-dollars NB-IoT RF module that works over cellular to connect, without any change in hardware, to our constellation of satellites, allowing basically seamless everywhere connectivity” said Sateliot CCO Gianluca Redolfi, who will represent the company on the IMC Board of Governors.

“We look at the IMC as an ideal platform to establish thought leadership in crucial vertical markets – IMC membership will drive awareness among buyers of IoT technology.”

The combined connectivity service allows for ubiquitous global coverage at a fraction of the cost for traditional satellite connectivity. Sateliot’s Early Adopters Program (EAP) is still open and offers early access to the technology at better conditions, already attracting hundreds of companies interested in deploying the services.
