What is a Virtual Satellite Network?

As more and more businesses adopt IoT as a core part of their operations, the limitations of terrestrial IoT are being revealed. Whilst ideal for densely populated areas, terrestrial IoT can be limited when it comes to remote locations. So organisations in areas such as agriculture, energy and utilities are looking to the sky to meet their IoT connectivity needs.

Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites circle between 200 and 2,000 kilometres above the earth’s surface. Commonly used for communications or mapping, LEO satellites can be small – shoe-box sized – and relatively low cost to produce, launch and maintain. They are rapidly becoming the essential technology for connecting the internet of things (IoT) in remote locations.
