Fleet to Integrate Its Satcom Data with Reekoh’s IOT Platform
Fleet Space Technologies has announced a collaborative working partnership with Reekoh, a platform for Internet of Things (IOT) data and Application Programming Interface (API) management. The partnership will see the integration of data from Fleet’s narrowband satellite communications with Reekoh’s enterprise IOT platform. The two companies will also enter into a joint pilot project that will involve the development of relevant plugins and data visualizations to demonstrate managed data.
Fleet Space Technologies is developing a nanosatellite constellation for narrowband data relay to and from remotely deployed devices and sensors. The system includes what Fleet refers to as portals. These proprietary user terminals can connect to multiple sensors and devices by Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) radio communication technologies.
The company plans to launch its nanosatellites before the second half of 2018. As such, the connectivity for the initial pilot program will be provided through a simulated space segment, but will be representative of Fleet’s eventual commercial narrowband service in terms of data bandwidth and latency.
Under the agreement, Reekoh will develop integrations to the Fleet data network that will provide additional capabilities for Fleet customers in managing and using their data. In turn, this will provide Fleet with commercial and operational opportunities through the use of the Reekoh platform.
“The advantage for our future customers is that — combined with coverage and ability to capture data in regional areas — Reekoh applications will help them analyze the information and understand our data more quickly. It’s straight out of the box. Our work together will allow customers to bring use cases to market quickly and cost effectively,” said Fleet Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Flavia Tata Nardini.
