Kymeta Connected Car to Trek Across Continental US
Kymeta has set out on a two-week trek across America in a connected Toyota RAV4 to provide a real-world proving ground for its Kalo internet service. According to Kymeta, Kalo services will deliver a new mobile satellite internet service that will make mobile high-throughput internet access available and easy to buy. The Kalo Trek Across America will begin in Washington, D.C. and wind through the country, covering more than 7,000 miles, culminating in a homecoming event at the Kymeta campus in Washington on Nov. 27.
Powered by the IntelsatOne Flex network, Kymeta Kalo services will provide high-bandwidth mobile satellite internet access to industries that require connectivity on the move such as military, news reporting, first responders, construction, trains, buses and more. Kalo services, when paired with Kymeta KyWay terminals and mTenna Antenna Subsystem Module (ASM), will connect places and fixed and mobile platforms that have traditionally had limited or no connectivity at all, Kymeta has stated.
Kymeta’s Toyota RAV4 will remain connected throughout its U.S. journey, conducting live streams and updates from the road.
