The Role of Satellite in Supply Chain Communications

Mining, farming, forestry, oil & gas, merchant shipping, and commercial fishing operations, as well as the transport of goods across land and sea, are all key parts of the supply chain ecosystem. But keeping supply chain communications flowing across that ecosystem can be challenging in areas where fiber and cellular connectivity are spotty or non-existent. For this reason, high-performing and reliable satellite connectivity is critical to supply chain logistics and management.

Advancements in satellite technology have enabled operators such as Intelsat to provide the satellite connectivity necessary for today’s supply chain operations, keeping the supply chain connected from production to the transport of goods to their final destination.

In this whitepaper, you’ll learn:

  • How satellite connectivity capabilities have grown to meet the demands of farm technology
  • Different satellite connectivity use cases in the supply chain
  • About new technologies enabling new satellite capabilities
