EchoStar Corporation has announced that seven leading European IoT service providers have signed multi-year commercial agreements to develop and sell IoT solutions using EchoStar Mobile’s Pan-European, satellite based, LoRa®-enabled IoT network. The customers, API-K, Cyric, DalesLandNet, Dryad, Galaxy1, ProEsys and Symes are leveraging the real-time network to enable massive IoT deployments for applications such as outdoor personal geo-safety, soil moisture monitoring, ultra-early forest fire detection, utility metering and pipeline monitoring.

“These innovative customers are choosing the EchoStar Mobile IoT network to meet their requirements for real-time, bi-directional sensor connectivity across agritech, utility, consumer recreational tracking and environmental markets,” said Telemaco Melia, vice president and general manager, EchoStar Mobile. “These deployments validate our customer value proposition by integrating seamlessly into the existing IoT ecosystem, achieving ubiquitous service continuity for our customers without requiring expensive terrestrial infrastructure.”

Compatible with Semtech Corporation’s LoRa-enabled wireless platform for device connectivity, the powerful, geostationary, EchoStar XXI S-band satellite delivers pervasive, two-way connectivity seamlessly across Europe without requiring roaming agreements across geographies. To add the satellite capability to their IoT systems, customers can upgrade existing commercially deployed devices easily with the low power and compact EchoStar Mobile EM2050 dual-mode satellite-terrestrial module.

EchoStar Mobile Limited is the EchoStar subsidiary in Europe that operates a mobile satellite system (MSS) network using the geostationary EchoStar XXI satellite. Globally, EchoStar is developing an S-band constellation of LEO satellites, called EchoStar Lyra™, to support IoT connectivity as the company explores development of a global non-terrestrial 5G network in the S-band.
