E-Space is collaborating with United Arab Emirates tech firm e& to develop IoT solutions, the companies announced March 28. 

The companies plan to develop cloud-native IoT solutions using e&’s terrestrial infrastructure and E-Space’s Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) constellation. The partners said this will create new business models in IoT for governments and large-scale enterprises worldwide.

E-Space and & expect to facilitate e& customer data to connect directly to private data centers without interference from commercial traffic by using peer-to-peer space-based communications. They have agreed to jointly develop IoT and digital solutions based on AI at the edge as well as everywhere in-between to enable system-wide intelligent decisions. 

Potential use cases include global tracking and agriculture and products across land, sea and air environments. 

“Telecommunications and space technology have a natural synergy, offering enormous opportunities for telco companies to expand their reach and capabilities,” commented Mikhail Gerchuk, CEO of e& international. “With our advanced infrastructure and E-Space’s next-generation space system, optimized with edge AI, we will offer a multi-technology platform enabling our customers to embrace a digital-first lifestyle more efficiently.  We are confident that we can leverage our combined expertise to create seamless global digital IoT experiences.”
