What happens when the lights go out in your house? Ever have them go out in the entire neighborhood? What about the whole town or city? The state? What would happen if service suddenly stopped all together?

Utilities management is a huge job with billions of people depending on the outcome of how well each operation runs. A power outage that lasts just a few hours can cost people money in lost wages, cause refrigeration and frozen food loss, exacerbate health issues for people dependent on power for climate control or medical devices and much more.
It’s not just an inconvenience for people when they lose access to utilities. That’s why it’s so critical for utilities management to have reliable, consistent access to monitor their systems. Terrestrial solutions can be unreliable (especially in remote areas) and networks can get bogged down by excess traffic. In the event of an emergency, when you really need utilities to be working, communication lines can get clogged by a surge in traffic. This is where satellite solutions come in.

How Satellite Tech Works for Utilities
By using satellite technology, utility companies can have connectivity across their entire smart grid. Anywhere they need connectivity; satellite is there — whether it’s remote substations, remote customer locations or automatic reading collector sites. Using IP-based satellite communication systems integrated with core networks, utilities are meeting their smart grid objectives. They have a reliable and secure network solution that allows them to monitor their SCADA devices. They may also use satellite technology to extend their ability to use video surveillance, VOIP and corporate data access to substations that are inaccessible by terrestrial networks. Satellite also allows utilities to manage green energy sites in remote locations and backhaul smart meter data from aggregation sites.
Utility networks can also operate primarily on terrestrial networks and use satellite as emergency backup. Satellite solutions can give an alternative way to monitor SCADA and communicate with field crews in the event of a natural disaster or manmade event, to ensure minimal downtime of the smart grid.

Major Benefits of Satellite
Satellite provides many benefits for utilities because it’s:
  • Easy to use – The technology is so user-friendly that just about anyone can deploy, monitor and optimize with minimal training.
  • Reliable – Weather conditions, remote locations and traffic surges won’t affect the data reliability of the satellite network. Satellite networks are 99.9% reliable.
  • Fast – Data rates with satellite have improved so much over the years that now they can support bandwidth-intensive real-time applications like VOIP and video streaming.
  • Affordable – Satellite is no longer an expensive niche solution. It is widely used across many industries and has become a very affordable solution. The cost to operate a satellite feed is comparable to a terrestrial and cellular network cost structure.
  • Flexible – Utilities can choose between outsourcing management (either partially or fully) of their satellite networks or building and operating their own. There’s a solution for every skill level and budget.

Satellite also:

  • Increases safety – Field crews sometimes work in hazardous conditions and remote locations. With satellite technology, they can have increased connectivity and better lines to safety with satellite phones, push-to-talk solutions and GPS devices equipped with panic buttons.
  • Enhances worker productivity – Constant access to the home office helps workers in the field check emails, update job orders, schedule work, send progress reports and more from anywhere in the field, which increases worker productivity.
When it comes to keeping the lights (and more) on, satellite is the go-to-tech. New York Mobile Satellite has that tech. Contact us today to get more information.

Think of this. You’re a logistics manager for a large trucking company and you realize one of your shipments has gone missing. Not only that, but you can’t get in touch with the driver or the supervisor because they both are out of cell phone range and apparently not in the truck. What do you do?

Organizations that operate fleets face several challenges when it comes to tracking their assets. Due to the mobile nature of fleets, it’s imperative to have connectivity wherever they may travel in order to track assets consistently. Organizations need to understand the exact location of their assets at all times, regardless of the location or environment so they can assess asset availability. They need to understand the status and security of all assets at all times. They also need to control assets to react to changing conditions.

Traditional terrestrial cellular communication has large dead zones where there is no connectivity. In remote locations, asset control is greatly reduced due to these dead zones. Having the GPS location of an asset doesn’t mean the driver has access to in-cab messaging and vehicle control, which helps maintain the driver’s awareness and the asset’s security.  

So what is an organization to do when they have a fleet of vehicles they need to track? The answer is satellite. Satellite technology hurdles the challenges of asset tracking due to its reliability, ease of use and consistent service even in the most remote areas. Satellite technology can easily be installed and maintained to help an organization manage its assets. 

What can satellite do to track assets?

Satellite technology provides great asset tracking performance. There are a variety of hardware units that work with asset management software so companies can chose the one that suits their budget and their business needs. Some software can track up to 40,000 live positions to make asset tracking a breeze, even for very large organizations. Satellite tracking software can be installed on many kinds of hardware, making it a very versatile option. 

Tracking assets via satellite technology is simple and can often be updated over the air so you don’t have any downtime when it’s time to update firmware. There are very safe options out there that give you voice and data access secure networks. The solutions are highly customizable so there is one to suit every organization’s needs. 

Options

Features available through asset tracking software vary by manufacturer, but could include some helpful options. Live tracking options are out there, which allow updates on assets’ locations every 15 minutes. Geo-fences are another option available. You can set up a geo-fence and know when an asset has entered or exited the perimeter you set up. You can also improve safety and security by establishing exceptions and receiving alerts that signal suspicious behavior.

Those in the trucking industry need to monitor their trailers even when they are unhooked to assure asset safety and security at all times. For those in this business, there are solutions available to monitor unhooked trailers. The hardware for these solutions runs on an internal battery with a long battery life, so unhooked trailers are monitored even when there is no power source for the tracking devices. These solutions can provide daily GPS information that is reported every 24 hours, or every 15 minutes if the asset is moved while the trailer is unhooked. Activity outside normal operating hours and locations can be tracked by email and SMS alerts. 

If you are looking for state of the art asset tracking technology, look no further than New York Mobile Satellite. We’ve got the solutions that will keep your assets safe. That translates to less loss and higher revenue for your organization. Contact us today.

Jonathan is an international tourist. He loves to travel, he loves to experience the exotic and he loves to spend money while he does it. And like many tourists, he sometimes finds he has depleted his cash. While this might not be a problem in most parts of the United States, many countries still operate largely on a cash basis. So Jonathan does what anyone else might do to get cash – he finds an ATM. Here’s the problem he encountered on his latest trip. The ATM was down. And so were the next three he found.

When you think of satellite solutions, generally you might think of highly mobile industries. Satellite solutions are frequently used in industries where workers are always on the go, like emergency first responders, members of the media, utility crews, gas and oil workers, miners and many more. But believe it or not, satellite applications are also helpful in more stationary businesses, like banks.

The banking industry presents its own set of challenges, like the need for constant, flawless connectivity, high-security and adaptability as the bank adds branches and ATMs Satellite technology can address all of these needs and more. Satellite can also enable areas of the world without terrestrial infrastructure to have the same access to banking that the rest of the world currently enjoys. Read on to see why satellite solutions for banking make perfect sense.

· Reliability – Satellite solutions can provide unsurpassed network reliability – 99 percent – that terrestrial networks just can’t beat. Terrestrial networks are vulnerable to natural and man-made disasters, geopolitical instability and limited reach. Satellite can provide reliable service that remains uncompromised by any of those factors. In today’s world of 24/7 banking, satellite can provide the connectivity that banks and customers need. In the event of a power outage, banks may even switch to power generators and continue to do business as usual.

· Streamlining – Satellite banking operations rely on a single operator, which gives them more control over their parameters. This dedicated operator can create a network that meets the exact needs of each financial institution and reduces the amount of people the bank needs to go through to resolve any issues. There is a single point of contact for development of the network, troubleshooting, training and maintenance. Satellite can provide managed services, with full monitoring and management of all terminals from multiple networks in a single platform.

· Extended reach – Satellite options give more customers in remote and rural areas access to the banking they need. Oftentimes these areas are not well connected with the terrestrial infrastructure the bank needs to provide services. This is where satellite can reach beyond terrestrial networks to provide people access to ATMs, point of sale networks and remote branch connectivity. This is equally important to banks as it is to customers, as it gives the banks a presence in emerging markets and access to new customers. Banks can give customers a wide range of quality services, which can lead to more revenue and customer loyalty.

· Top notch security – Transmitting sensitive data via satellite is more secure than through terrestrial transmission. Satellite IP data is independent of other local telecom operators.

· A leg up on the competition – Adopting satellite services now can give banks an edge over their competition, who may still be relying on terrestrial solutions. Satellite can be used for either primary or back-up services between corporate data centers and remote banking options. Increasing customer satisfaction through better connectivity and building a larger customer base will allow banks to win over customers from their competitors and build loyalty to their brands.

As you can see, satellite services and banking go hand in hand, and in ways you might not have considered before. The technology is out there to give customers what they need whenever they need it. If you’re in the banking industry or you’re a customer like Jonathan, be sure your bank has what it takes to provide safe, consistent service.

If you travel the globe and you’re frequently in remote locations, but you still want to use your smart phone, there’s satellite technology that can make this a reality – the Thuraya SatSleeve. Even if you never travel the globe, but you live in a rural community (or just a terrestrial cell tower dead-zone), the same technology can convert your standard smartphone into a satellite phone that gets reception anywhere on the planet. And as amazing as this revelation is, it’s not going to cost you an arm and a leg. It doesn’t require any complicated setup, either (there’s a simple tutorial video that can walk you through it).

The Thuraya SatSleeve takes your existing smart phone and transforms it into a lean, mean, satellite-signal-receiving machine. Both iPhone and Samsung smartphones are compatible with this technology. Even when you upgrade your phone, you can still use the same Thuraya Satsleeve with an updated adapter. The satellite network covers over 160 countries, so just about anywhere you want to go, you’ll have access to everything you need on your phone.

When you use the Thuraya Satsleeve, you don’t have to worry about remembering a 16-digit satellite phone number or your call not getting through because of a security block on a foreign number. Your calls will ring through and be connected via a local number, so your call can be connected easily, every time.

This technology is great for people who live and work outside of terrestrial cell phone tower reach. Even if you’re not an adventurer hiking to remote locations, there are many spots in our country and others that still do not have cell phone coverage or Internet capability. With this technology hooked to a smart phone, anyone can have access to all smart phone capabilities like talk, voice, text, applications, Internet access and more.

There are also industries that by their very mobile nature demand satellite technology to communicate. Emergency first responders are always on the go. Having their smart phones with satellite capability allows them to communicate with their loved ones to reassure them of their safety during times when terrestrial phone lines may be overburdened with traffic. Members of the media are also highly mobile and need to communicate with their offices or their families while chasing a developing story. The Thuraya Satsleeve makes all of this possible.

Industries can also benefit from the Thuraya Satsleeve. Utility workers frequently have to work alone in remote locations to make repairs, check conditions and service equipment. With use of their smart phones, in addition to any other satellite communications their company may use, they are able to communicate through multiple channels, which helps improve operations and worker safety. The same benefits extend to workers in the oil and gas industries, mining, maritime and aviation industries. All of these industries are highly mobile and in remote locations. They can all benefit from an additional line of communication to their home offices and loved ones.

This technology is surprisingly affordable for all that you get. For about the cost of your cell phone, you can buy one of these devices. Contact us today to order.

With the mobile nature of logistics, or commercially transporting goods to customers, it only makes sense that satellite technology could improve the process. Satellite technology works in the most remote locations, allows for real-time communication with remote workers, allows for the transfer of large amounts of data and even allows workers to set up remote offices with full communications capabilities on the go.

There are many technologies that improve the safety of logistics workers, enable remote fleet management and improve the tracking of assets and freight, saving companies money. But logistics operations need to track more information than ever before. They may be tracking hundreds of tractors, routes and fleets and may need to communicate with vehicles about arrivals and departures, load assignments, load scale, type of load, fueling and other important information. Satellite technology allows this communication to take place in real-time.

Satellite GPS Tracking Improves Logistics

Satellite GPS tracking can improve safety and security, optimize fleet operations and reduce risk with real-time tracking and monitoring. This GPS tracking system will work even in the most rugged and remote locations because it does not rely on terrestrial cell towers and operates on the Iridium satellite network and Inmarsat network.

Asset Management

The fleet management system integrates asset management software with satellite communications to give you reliable fleet management, monitoring and tracking. You can receive continuous GSP location, speed and direction information, as well as vehicle information like engine activity, idle and stop data.

Messaging


There are also messaging capabilities that will improve operations, such as text messaging, email and pre-defined messages that can be displayed on an optional in-cab terminal. All messages are geotagged for location tracking and safety.

Safety

Better tracking and communication mean better safety for your operators in the field. You can know if your driver is driving without a seatbelt, if a trailer has become disconnected or if there’s an engine problem, all from a central office. You can communicate with your driver to let them know there’s an issue, even if they’re off the terrestrial cell grid. You will have real-time GPS data to know where drivers are at all times. For shipping by rail, you can control rail cargo and temperature sensors and receive notification of excessive impacts from over-speed coupling. This ensures your cargo is going to get to its final destination undamaged.

Telephone, Push-to-Talk and Internet Capabilities Improve Communication

Logistics both on land and at sea will benefit from improved communications, as sometimes the business takes workers outside of the 2-way radio network and away from terrestrial cell networks. For these times, satellite telephone systems – portable handhelds, fixed docking kits, maritime phones or in-vehicle fixed phones – will come in handy for communication.

If you require push-to-talk for your daily operations, you can extend your 2-way radio network across the globe with SATRAD Matrix products. These products will integrate satellite push-to-talk with your existing UHF/VHF radios, repeaters and dispatch console systems. Satellite communications technology can also give your fleet access to broadband Internet or low-speed data systems while they’re on the move.

Get your fleets moving in the right direction and keep them moving. Contact New York Mobile Satellite for more information on usage and a product line that fits your particular needs and budget.

Machine to Machine or M2M technology has been around for a while, but adding satellite technology to this amazing advancement is taking M2M to the next level. Read on to find out what M2M is, how satellite technology improves it and how various industries can benefit from it.

What is M2M?

Machine-to Machine, or M2M, technology refers to any set of network devices that can perform actions and exchange information without a human manually sending or receiving the information. This technology is often used to remotely monitor conditions. This type of communication is used in remote control, robotics, logistics services, traffic control, supply chain management, fleet management, warehouse management, telemedicine and much more.

Most M2M communication require RFID or radio frequency identification. According to the Internet of Things Agenda, this technology uses an electromagnetic or electrostatic coupling in the radio frequency portion of the electromagnetic spectrum to uniquely identify an object, animal or person. The RFID is made of three components: an antenna, transceiver and transponder. In addition to the RFID, M2M depends on sensors, a communication link (through Wi-Fi, cellular or satellite network) and autonomic computing software.

How Does Satellite Technology Improve M2M?

Companies or individuals that need to use M2M in remote locations don’t have to be dependent on cellular or Wi-Fi networks for communication. Satellite enables M2M to happen anywhere on the planet, even in the most remote locations. The service is cost-effective because they don’t have to invest in broadband infrastructures and provides very reliable service. According to OFFCOMM News, the global market for satellite M2M services is projected to be $1.6 billion by 2017.

Industries That Benefit From Satellite M2M

The government and private sector alike are benefitting from Satellite M2M as the industry continues to grow. The energy sector already widely uses satellite M2M for tasks like monitoring oil pipelines or electric wire networks including Smart Grids. Utility meters can also contain this technology, saving utility companies money collecting data about individual usage. This technology is used to monitor assets where large numbers of equipment are spread out over vast areas.

There are other uses for the technology. In banking, the technology provides ATM services in areas with limited connectivity. In the environmental industries, the technology provides monitoring for water treatment sites, windmill farms and other sites.

There are also public safety and meteorological applications for this technology. M2M allows us to pick up meteorological and seismic activity across the globe. The data collected can help monitor forest fires, issue tsunami or flood warnings and more, saving lives. There are also applications for military or government intelligence agencies that need to track assets or people across the globe.

M2M has plenty of maritime applications. Satellite M2M allows communication and improved safety of crews out at sea. More governments are employing Vessel Monitoring Systems to help enforce fishing regulations. Satellite M2M also enables increased safety by monitoring the systems on the ship like oil pressure and coolant temperature, so that the crew and those ashore can be aware of any potential mechanical issues. Buoys equipped with M2M terminals can help scientists monitor ocean conditions, collecting important environmental data that can be used in wave, ocean port and coastal monitoring. More office functions can be performed at sea using M2M technology, allowing for optimum efficiency on ships.

It’s amazing technology that’s easy to use – SATCollect, the solution that helps simplify the satellite calling process. Learn more about SATCollect and its applications, and then decide for yourself if it’s something that can help your business save money, while avoiding communications issues.

What is SATCollect?

Satellite numbers tend to be long and hard to remember, but with SATCollect, you can assign one or multiple local phone numbers from over 50 countries that will direct to your satellite phone. This can save people trying to call your satellite phone from remembering a long satellite number or a country code when trying to reach you, making the phone service seem more like terrestrial phone service, which is familiar to more people. The more comfortable users are, the easier communication becomes.

You’d be surprised how easy SATCollect is to set up. All you do is choose your country/area code, enter your sat phone number, use your new number and save. The technology is sophisticated, the interface simple.

How can your business benefit from SATCollect?

In addition to simplifying the calling process, SATCollect can help better control your satellite communication budget. You can get a permanent rate. It will be more like calling local to local rather than local to long distance. This will also help people calling your satellite phone save money, as they won’t incur extra fees for dialing internationally. These savings can add up to a better bottom line for your company and for your customers.

SATCollect also offers real-time billing and activity reports. You can access all your satellite related services on one bill, which means you can have better visibility of your satellite communications costs to control your bottom line.

What are some applications of SATCollect?

What are some practical applications of this technology out in the field? There are a variety of industries that can benefit from the simplification of the calling process and the cost savings SATCollect can offer.

The government and military are on very strict budgets. SATCollect offers predictable billing with cost-saving rates to help keep communications budgets under control. This technology can also offer certain numbers to certain staff members, so the budgeting office can monitor where costs are incurred.

In the oil and gas industry, people generally need to communicate within the field for research, pipeline monitoring or repair and general communication for the drilling staff and oil platforms. SATCollect allows staff members located in these remote, offsite locations to reach other staff members with a simple, local phone number.

The boating industry or those who spend a lot of time out at sea can benefit from SATCollect by having a local number for friends, family or colleagues who are ashore. When fishing vessels take advantage of this technology, their parent company can assign numbers to all boats so that they can contact their vessels through a local number, saving money on communications costs and making communication easier.

Emergency and disaster relief staff can receive calls quickly so they can save more lives, as people phoning for assistance won’t have to deal with long, confusing numbers or the barriers of making an international call.

The media can also benefit from SATCollect, as reporters travelling the world are a simple local phone call away from the station at all times. Often reporters have very little lead time on where they are travelling when they are chasing a story. With SATCollect, they can be in constant contact with their offices at home to ensure good communication and safety.
