Satellite Services Offer True Global Connectivity Regardless of Device Location
KORE, in partnership with Iridium – the leader in low-Earth orbit mobile satellite services – has enhanced its service offering to provide global M2M communications. With 100% global coverage, this service offering provides customers with the comprehensive and cost effective reach they require for powering global solutions. The addition of satellite services to the KORE portfolio allows companies requiring connectivity for fleet and asset tracking, for example, to utilize the low latency, global M2M service they require to compete in the global economy. The service enables two way data messages globally in typically less than 60 seconds.
Available as a single or dual mode service option – meaning customers can select satellite-only services or enhanced service plans that include cellular network services – this enhanced M2M network complements existing, cellular-based solutions so that when a device connects via the KORE Network, it transmits using least cost routing based on coverage and application usage requirements. The powerful combination of cellular and satellite M2M network services also allows satellite-based devices to use Over The Air (OTA) updates via cellular, which typically cannot be achieved via satellite due to file size and other limitations.

Data Services Available
Short Burst Data (SBD) delivery is optimized for M2M applications. It provides full two-way capability for data transmission. This is the only truly global solution that supports:
|||Low-latency data links|
|||Single radio with uniform global performance|
|||One price, global footprint|
|||Single agreement for worldwide services|
|||Optimal for 340 byte mobile originated and 270 character byte mobile terminated messages|
Supported M2M Devices
The Short Burst Data Service (SBD) supports a number of powerful and economical M2M devices delivered by OEM partners in the marketplace. With industry leading flexibility it is designed for integration into wireless data applications with other host system hardware and software, providing a complete solution for specific applications or vertical markets, including automotive vehicle location, equipment monitoring, and tracking of maritime vessels. Typically, in satellite-only solutions, the larger the bandwidth the higher the cost and the larger the equipment/antenna, but the KORE Satellite Service provides truly mobile communications capability in a relatively small device footprint and antenna.
