Telefónica to connect IoT devices via satellite with 5G technology – IoT Business News


Satellite IoT specialist Wyld Networks has signed a strategic partnership with the Swiss-based leader for the Internet of Things, Miromico AG.

As part of the agreement, Miromico will help Wyld with the design, engineering and manufacture of its next generation of low-power, sensor-to-satellite LoRaWAN® terminals and modules for IoT applications across areas where there is little or no alternative connectivity.

Wyld Connect hybrid devices can transfer data directly to terrestrial networks or through a network of Low Earth Orbiting (LEO) satellites. Miromico will also resell Wyld Connect devices and satellite services. Providing 100 percent global coverage using terrestrial or satellite LoRaWAN connectivity, Wyld solutions are ideal for applications in remote areas such as agriculture, environmental monitoring, energy, supply chain and utilities.

As part of the agreement, Wyld will promote and resell Miromico sensors globally, and integrate them in complete end-to-end, sensor-to-satellite solutions. “With years of experience in innovative design for integrated circuits, electronic systems and the IoT, Miromico is the ideal partner to help us accelerate our R&D and production activities to meet the growing demand for advanced satellite IoT solutions,” said Alastair Williamson, CEO at Wyld Networks. “There is a lot of synergy between the two companies that will help us to drive further market adoption and explore new applications.”

Marcel Wappler, CTO at Miromico, said:

“Wyld is at the forefront of new sensor-to-satellite technology, which is set to massively transform the IoT market, currently being held back by the lack of global connectivity.”

“We look forward to working with Wyld to further advance its products, help accelerate production and take them to existing and new markets,” added Schekeb Fateh, CEO of Miromico.

Wyld is already working on commercial data trials of its sensor-to-satellite service with customers and partners including Chevron, DFM Technologies, DEWA, Senet and American Tower.
