Connectivity Solutions

True Global Coverage from Pole to Pole, Ocean to Ocean Industrial and government customers with assets spread across the globe face many connectivity challenges. The obvious issue is remote / out of coverage areas with limited or no connectivity. Occasionally, a natural disaster, or as we’ve seen in recent times, man-made turmoil knocks out coverage where it regularly exists. More challenging still, networks service availability varies widely from country to country, with variables like geography, local regulations and /or licensing often an obstacle.

With so many challenges, reliable, secure back-up networks have never been so necessary.

Globecomm delivers one integrated package for managing Industrial IoT (IIoT) networks with its Global Connectivity solution. Globecomm’s Global Connectivity IIoT solution allows satellite connectivity to work seamlessly via a flexible, reliable and highly secure cellular network, providing customers multi-network capabilities from a single point of management, monitoring assets nearly anywhere on the planet.

Multi-Network Capabilities

In order to justify the costs and achieve a good return on investments, customers should have multiple connectivity options to meet their business requirements and challenges of the deployment.

Globecomm recommends the optimal connectivity option, with our multi network capabilities which include:

  • Cellular Connectivity
  • Satellite Connectivity
  • Dual Mode Connectivity
  • Remote Sensor Network for Remote Locations
  • Integration Possibilities to Low Power WANs– Bluetooth, Zigbee and ZWave.

Globecomm also offers multiple carrier options all using a single Unified API. Our solutions would not only meet the business requirement but also the regulatory requirements in each market.

Cellular: Globecomm has relationships with multiple tier 1 carriers to offer Global cellular connectivity under a single plan with no roaming charges. Our SIM cards offer connectivity in 550 carriers across the Globe with single point of data delivery.

Satellite: Globecomm is a wholesaler of multiple satellite networks offering connectivity anywhere on the globe. Globecomm also offers devices that are supported on various satellite networks providing custom solutions based on customer’s requirements.

Dual Mode: The Dual Mode IoT devices connect to cellular network as a primary and satellite network as a backup in order to provide global coverage, take advantage of low-cost cellular data when available, and use satellite networks only if cellular connectivity is not available. This solution includes a smart, and least-cost routing mechanism to ensure seamless switching between cellular and satellite networks and offers single point of connection to IoT applications.

Remote Sensing Networks: Globecomm offers remote sensing integration possibility for far reaching locations like ships, farms, mining locations, offshore rigs, etc. Globecomm uses its Global Connectivity Solution to integrate and build remote sensing networks supporting cellular, low power networks like ZigBee, Bluetooth, etc.

Globecomm’s Industrial IoT Solution

Globecomm solves enterprise challenges for managed connectivity solutions operating globally, including in remote regions.

This includes managed services, integration of dual mode devices with IoT applications, deployment, troubleshooting, licensing, provisioning and billing. The Globecomm Industrial IoT platform provides a single point interface that allows users to select the best satellite option depending on cost, coverage and data throughputs. Globecomm’s Industrial IoT platform also offers device administration, billing management, analytics and licensing for various satellite and cellular networks. The platform combines several elements that build a robust IoT service delivery engine, networks consolidating multi network technologies and supports remote devices.

What is Dual Mode IoT?

The Dual Mode IoT (Internet of Things) solution provides the coverage that fills in the gaps in cellular coverage allowing seamless switching to satellite coverage. Dual Mode IoT devices connect to the cellular network as a primary channel and use the satellite network as a backup in order to provide global coverage, maximizing low-cost cellular data when available. Satellite networks are only used if cellular connectivity is not available. This solution includes a smart, least-cost routing mechanism to ensure seamless switching between cellular and satellite networks and offers a single point of connection to IoT applications.

Globecomm IoT Managed Services

Globecomm offers a fully managed service for end to end networks and provides carrier grade platform availability that includes dashboard tools for analysis. Dual Mode Solutions Consist of Three Main Components:

  • Fully managed service of satellite networks, cellular networks and devices
  • Platform with device APIs
