As Per Latest Information In collaboration with Skylotech India, BSNL created the first satellite based IoT network in the world.

BSNL has launched the world’s first satellite IoT network in partnership with Skylotech India

The satellite-based Internet of Things (IoT) is already a reality in India thanks to BSNL. A satellite-based narrowband Internet of Things (IoT) network is being introduced for the first time in the world by BSNL in collaboration with Skylotech India. This network will benefit Indian farmers, fishers, construction, mining, and logistical businesses.

The Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s goal of a totally Digital India is supported by BSNL’s satellite-based narrowband IoT services. With the help of this solution, India will now have access to a pervasive network of connection for millions of machines, sensors, and industrial IoT devices that are not currently linked. The Skylo-developed Made in India system will connect to BSNL’s satellite ground infrastructure and offer coverage for all of India, including the Indian Ocean.

From Kashmir and Ladakh to Kanyakumari, and from Gujarat to the North East, encompassing the Indian territories, the coverage will be so extensive that there won’t be a single black spot inside the boundaries of India.

Suitable for the successful COVID-19 vaccination delivery in 2021

“The solution is in line with BSNL’s vision to leverage technology to provide affordable and cutting-edge telecom services and products across customers segments,” said Shri.PK Purwar, CMD of BSNL. “Skylo will be a big contributor in service to the nation,” he continued. “Skylo would also help provide critical data for the logistic sector to enable effective distribution of COVID-19 vaccine in 2021.”

According to Shri Parthasarathi Trivedi, CEO and Co-Founder of Skylo, “Until now, sectors like agriculture, railroads, and fisheries have operated offline and have not been able to fully capitalize on the most recent breakthroughs in AI & IoT. I’m delighted to announce the first deployment of this Narrow Band IoT network based on satellites in India in order to improve lives and local industries.

“Successful POCs (Proof of Concepts) have already been conducted in India by BSNL and Skylo,” said Shri Vivek Banzal, Director (CFA), BSNL Board. Before the start of the new year of 2021, we will shortly contact a number of user groups.

Due to the fact that it coincides with the current Indian Mobile Congress 2020, this groundbreaking news is extremely opportune. The Department of Telecom and NITI Ayog’s ambition to introduce Indigenous IoT connection to India’s vital industries is supported by this innovative technology. Indian Railways, fishing vessels, and enabling networked automobiles across India are a few examples of places where this technology has previously been tried effectively.

The Skylo “User Terminal,” a compact, intelligent, and remarkably durable box, communicates with sensors and sends data to the Skylo Network and into users’ hands. Applications for certain industries on desktop or mobile are provided with an immersive, visual experience by the coordinating Data Platform. No matter where they are, it enables users to respond immediately and appropriately. This new digital machine connection layer will complement smartphone-centric mobile & Wi-Fi networks and covers the entirety of India to enable the initial launch of new apps.

POC was conducted for the Keralan government’s Fisheries Department in Ernakulam and Kollam.

For the Fisheries Department, Government of Kerala, BSNL and Skylo conducted POCs (a demo on the operation of the IoT hub) in Ernakulam and Kollam. The satellite based IoT services used to manage, watch over, and spy on fishermen and their boats are provided by the Skylo hubs mounted on the boats.

Please share your thoughts and ideas on this most recent breakthrough IoT service developed by BSNL in the comments section below, dear readers.
