Bangalore, February 3 2021: Skylo, the world’s first end-to-end solution connecting machine and sensor data via satellite, has partnered with Beetel, a leading technology brand offering contemporary solutions for modern India’s connectivity and IT needs.
The two companies plan to scale up the adoption of end-to-end Internet of Things (IoT) solutions to connect the billions of machines and remote assets in hundreds of industries across India. As part of this partnership Beetel will provide sales, customer support, and product fulfillment to support Skylo’s fast-growing customer progress.
“Machine connectivity is critical, especially for those in traditionally analog industries, like logistics, construction, mining and agriculture,” said Angira Agrawal, Skylo COO. “This partnership with Beetel is a big win as we help governments and businesses understand the tremendous value we bring by providing actionable insights to improve efficiencies, increase profits, and even save lives. With Skylo, logistics companies can get faster access to telematics info on their fleet, construction and mining equipment can be connected and managed in any part of the country, and farmers can utilize farming equipment more efficiently.”
Beetel’s Senior Vice President Sanjeev Patil added, “We are excited to partner with Skylo as the ‘tip of the spear’ for the notable growth of the industrial IoT market in India. We believe that there’s a phenomenal market potential to bring analog, previously offline machines online for the first time. Beetel’s customer base, strong network, and experience in telecom, data, IT sales and services, when coupled with Skylo’s disruptive technology, will rapidly propel the Indian market.”
Today’s networks were designed to connect people. Machines and sensors, especially those in remote and underserved areas like rural farms and boats out at sea, require a different type of network -- and it needs to be affordable, reliable, and continuous. Skylo’s end-to-end solution meets this need with its Skylo Satellite Network, its elegant Skylo Hub, and its immersive Skylo Platform, accessible on mobile and desktop. Together, these components increase safety, drive economic development and job creation, and help with disaster preparedness. Skylo successfully serves customers across public and private sectors in industries including agriculture, fishing, logistics, transportation, machine health, and others.
