Inmarsat has launched ELEVATE, a programme consisting of three critical pillars to accelerate IoT growth.
According to Omdia, the number of global satellite IoT connections is set to continue growing at a 25 percent CAGR. Inmarsat intends to support and further accelerate this rapid growth.
“The satellite IoT market has been steadily growing for years – and now is the time to up the ante and kickstart its next stage of more rapid growth. Inmarsat ELEVATE will help our customers realise the promise of IoT anywhere, while empowering the wider satellite IoT ecosystem to make it a reality,” said Mike Carter, President at Inmarsat Enterprise.
“The ELEVATE community will play an active role in addressing the planet’s really big challenges, helping build a more sustainable, efficient, and safe global supply chain.”
The three pillars of ELEVATE are:
Development programme – Supporting IoT solution providers, system integrators, machinery manufacturers, and OEMs who are looking to scale.Partner ecosystem – Continue to foster a community of organisations that can share their knowledge and collaborate to accelerate growth in the satellite IoT sector.Online marketplace – Used to promote IoT solutions that can work anywhere in the world, even in the most remote of locations.
Inmarsat expects ELEVATE will help its partners to achieve double-digit growth in the next five years.
“Launching a programme like Inmarsat ELEVATE is about using our expertise and technological strength for the good of our customers – and we’re confident that it will have a huge impact on the organisations that need it most,” added Carter.
“We’re excited to work with as many new partners as possible, and to see what we can achieve together – as individual businesses, and as an innovative, game-changing industry.”
Inmarsat continues to grow its ELERA network. At the end of last year, the company launched the first of seven of its I-6 F1 satellites—the first hybrid L- and Ka-band satellites. The satellite joined and added capacity to Inmarsat’s existing 14 geostationary satellites.
“Inmarsat’s ELERA network provides an essential backbone to IoT innovation, so our development partners will be able to scale and grow their operations backed by its reliability and seamless global connectivity,” said Carter.
“Our partner ecosystem will enable knowledge-sharing and collaboration at an unprecedented scale, between parties of all sizes, in all geographies and industries, while our online marketplace will promote IoT solutions for any and every business need.”
