SkyWave Launches Dual Satellite-Cellular HSPA Device

skywaveOttawa-based SkyWave Mobile Communications, a global provider of satellite based communications for the Machine-to-Machine (M2M) market, today announced the availability of HSPA (High Speed Packet Access) with IDP 700 satellite-cellular terminals. This option ensures the most cost-effective communications network can be accessed without sacrificing coverage or connectivity to essential data. The satellite-cellular terminals provide a quick and smart way to connect people and assets anywhere in the world. SkyWave’s IDP 700 series terminals are designed for tracking vehicles moving between urban and remote areas. They also provide dual or redundant backup systems to ensure functionality in the event of failure, mishap, or change in operational conditions.

“With the HSPA option, these satellite terminals are able to use 2G (GPRS) and 3G (HSPA) networks when available,” said Sue Rutherford, Director of Marketing at SkyWave. “But when these options are not able to accommodate the collection and broadcast of important data and information, satellite connectivity with the IDP 700 series makes it possible to send and receive the data necessary to monitor, manage and control remote assets in a timely manner.”

The number and types of applications incorporating the IDP 700 series is vast, with features including:

  • Multiple input/output and serial interfaces for connecting to on-board peripherals like sensors and external laptops/tablets to increase mobile workforce connectivity and automation with electronic work orders and access to information in databases for field workers
  • “Last gasp” battery option to send last know GPS position and other info in the event power to the terminal is lost
  • CANbus port (with J1939 protocol support) for applications that require connectivity to vehicle telemetry ports
  • A flexible Lua programming environment to develop unique on-board applications
