LAS VEGAS, USA: For M2M and IoT companies working in oil & gas, mining, maritime, construction and emergency services, Taoglas, a leading M2M and IoT antenna provider, today launched an Iridium certified smart antenna transceiver that will leverage the Iridium satellite network’s reliable, global, low-latency coverage to provide connectivity in remote or extreme environments.
“For any M2M company working in vehicle telematics, or remote tracking where cellular connectivity is not available, the Spartan STS.01 transceiver provides a low-cost, low-risk solution to deliver critical information from anywhere on earth via the Iridium satellite network,” said David Wigglesworth, VP and GM, Americas & Global M2M Services, Iridium.
“For example, the all-in-one STS.01 reduces the cost to add Iridium M2M service to an existing cellular solution by providing the satellite hardware solution, only requiring the developer to complete the software integration by interfacing to an existing serial port.”
“When M2M companies include the Spartan STS.01 transceiver in vehicles, they don’t have to get separate certifications from Iridium or industry associations. The Spartan is certified for use on the Iridium network. In the future, we’ll be adding GPS/GLONASS and Beidou capabilities to the receiver,” said Dermot O’Shea, president, Taoglas USA.
