China deal for IsatData Pro

SkyWave Mobile Communications (SkyWave) has announced that it is to make the IsatData Pro satellite service available in China, through an alliance with Beijing Marine Communication and Navigation Company (MCN).

MCN will distribute IsatData Pro via its offices throughout China for applications that require communication for tracking, monitoring and remote management of fixed and mobile assets.

“There is a growing need from our customers to integrate the right tools for total visibility, no matter the terrain,” said Mr Yinlin, vice president of MCN.

“We have seen strong demand in the market for the monitoring of vessels, fuel, environment and offshore oil rigs, to name a few. We look forward to forging ahead with SkyWave to distribute IsatData Pro satellite services throughout the country.”

An operator of the Beijing Land Earth Station (LES) used as part of the Inmarsat satellite communications network, MCN has been an Inmarsat Distribution Partner for the past 20 years. IsatData Pro is a jointly developed service that teams SkyWave’s range of terminals with Inmarsat’s global L-band satellite network.

SkyWave’s IsatData Pro service and products are particularly aimed at M2M applications, including telemetry and tracking devices for transport fleet management systems.

“SkyWave is committed to supporting our partners and customers in China,” said Dan Poirier, SkyWave senior vice president, operations.

“The receipt of hardware approvals for IsatData Pro opens a number of new customer and application opportunities for both MCN and SkyWave, particularly with service providers delivering solutions in China that are involved with transportation on land and sea.”
