Vizada to Distribute SkyWave IsatData Pro M2M Services
[Satellite TODAY 11-08-11] Vizada signed a distribution agreement with Ottawa-based SkyWave Mobile Communications to provide distribution of Inmarsat’s IsatData Pro (IDP) satellite service and machine-to-machine (M2M) solution, the MSS reseller announced Nov. 7.
Vizada will distribute SkyWave’s IDP terminals, which use the SkyWave IsatData Pro satellite service to enable remote management of fixed and mobile assets. The M2M portfolio that Vizada will distribute for SkyWave also includes Inmarsat’s BGAN service, as well as the operator’s BGAN M2M service scheduled to launch early next year.
Vizada said the agreement would be used to fill a pipeline of requests generated by Vizada Partners for a range of utility, oil and gas, transportation and other end customer requirements.
“There is an emerging call for M2M services among key markets such as oil and gas, utilities, transport and even the government. We are moving quickly to address the needs of these customers, and the introduction of IsatData Pro services is a key step in demonstrating our commitment to them,” Vizada Director of Land Services Catherine Melquist said in a statement.
