SatStation EdgeMate, an IoT Hub for Seamless Connectivity and Efficient Data Transmissions


The title of one of the first IoT-related articles I ever penned covered 5G livestock device connectivity in South Africa. I remember those words vividly, given I’d never written an article about such a neat topic before. Just me, sitting in my home in Indiana, covering news about 5G NB-IoT technology for livestock management across the world. (Again, very neat.) And it was around that time that I learned a phrase that has since stuck with me:

“Connectivity is the lifeblood of IoT.”

Two things about this:

  1. If I somehow were to suffer an untimely demise, that’s a contender for what gets etched on my headstone, given how frequently I’ve come to use the phrase over the last year.
  2. Humor aside, that phrase continues to be more and more true, every single day. Every industry benefits from communications solutions (IoT, especially) and it’s still so important to ensure seamless device connectivity in a digital-everything age.

So, naturally, I wanted to begin this article with that recognition. If you’re in the current communications game when it comes to smartly built technologies (nearly regardless of industry, but again IoT in particular), reliable connectivity everywhere possible is the way to slam-dunk success for modernized systems.

That said, this story’s communications-centric IoT news:

SatStation, a well-known provider of satellite communication solutions, is introducing its new SatStation EdgeMate, an IoT hub designed to improve communication in both semi-remote and fully off-the-grid environments.

Per SatStation:

“The SatStation EdgeMate is the ultimate connectivity companion for the Iridium Edge.  Customers looking to easily integrate Iridium Short Burst Data (SBD) into applications can turn to the EdgeMate to power the Iridium Edge, control it, and then interface with their system via ethernet cable, Wi-Fi, and USB.” (For context, SBD is a messaging system that allows for the quick transmission of small amounts of data between equipment and centralized host computer systems.)

So with EdgeMate’s plug-and-play compatibility and myriad connectivity options for an organization to select, SatStation’s EdgeMate is described as “ready to empower users with streamlined connectivity and efficient data transmission capabilities.” In addition, EdgeMate also features both satellite and cellular connectivity, built-in and least-cost routing tech for optimizing transmissions with reduced TCO, built-in software that can eliminate time-consuming and costly engineering work (even for M2M), a simple API interface for developers, and more.

"The SatStation EdgeMate is a game-changer for off-the-grid communications," said Sam Crowther, Vice President of SatStation. "Our product provides a comprehensive solution for IoT applications, removing the complexities of engineering work and enabling users to connect with ease."

"The EdgeMate empowers businesses and individuals to overcome communication barriers in remote and challenging environments," added Crowther. "With EdgeMate’s comprehensive features and simplified integration, it truly provides a reliable, efficient IoT solution."
