Inmarsat Launches ASP Program for IoT Solution Providers
Inmarsat has launched an Application and Solution Provider (ASP) program, the company announced April 1. This will be an ecosystem for providers of software, hardware and solutions, as well as original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in commercial land markets.
ASPs will gain access to Inmarsat’s global satellite connectivity and regional presence to scale their solutions into new sectors and geographies. This program aims to ensure that companies operating in areas without reliable connectivity, or with mission-critical connectivity needs, are able to access Internet of Things (IoT) solutions to enhance the efficiency, safety and sustainability of their businesses.
The program launches with two partners already on board: Australian-based agri-tech IoT company Farmbot Monitoring Solutions and Swedish company, MinFarm Tech.
“With this new initiative we are set to accelerate the roll out of IoT into remote areas of the world where the data points might be the most valuable. Key to this acceleration is the provision of innovative turnkey solutions that our ASPs are creating, along with Inmarsat’s reliable connectivity, to ensure that the IoT solution works wherever it is needed,” Mike Carter, president of Enterprise at Inmarsat said in a statement.
