July 5, 2022 – hiSky Ltd has completed compatibility testing of its Smartellite™ terminals with the highly sophisticated, award-winning and high-speed Global Xpress (GX) network from Inmarsat. The move marks the first step in a long-term partnership between the two companies, utilising Inmarsat’s geostationary (GEO) Ka-band capabilities to provide a low-cost, high-value offering to hiSky’s IoT customers. The technology will be available to customers active in enterprise sectors including agriculture, transport, mining, energy and utilities across selected territories. hiSky’s proprietary Smartellite™ terminal technology has proven to communicate highly effectively with Inmarsat’s GX network – with its high-speed and reliable signals being received by ground infrastructure in Scotland and transferring throughout hiSky’s IoT network offering. This service enables the successful running of IoT devices, as well as voice calls and messaging for both mobile and static enterprise assets. Through the partnership, hiSky and Inmarsat have uncovered an opportunity to leverage Inmarsat’s expansive GX network to provide customers with access to the world’s most sophisticated GEO global Ka-band satellite network, typically used by leading companies in the aviation and maritime industries. hiSky’s network is designed to operate within existing satellite networks, enabling fast deployment at minimum CAPEX cost.
