LEOs, IoT and M2M Communications
Matthew Desch, CEO, Iridium
Global businesses need access to critical data on a 24/7 basis no matter which environment their assets and resources are operating in. With roughly 80 percent of the Earth's geography with no cell service….how are companies able to track and monitor their remote equipment and other assets around the world? In many cases satellite based machine-to-machine (M2M) communications are filling the gap as a reliable way to link critical equipment no matter where it is located on the planet. Listen to Matthew Desch, CEO of Iridium as he discusses how their low-Earth orbit satellites provide global coverage for tracking of maritime vessels, equipment monitoring, and automatic vehicle location, across a variety of sectors from agriculture, to mining, energy, oil and gas, to transport.
