SmartLNB, innovative cost-effective connectivity for low-throughput applications
As demand for intelligent connected objects and the Internet of Things (IoT) takes off, applications are increasingly required to collect or exchange very small volumes of data with remote devices. This ranges from traditional industrial Machine-to-Machine (M2M) applications, such as remote monitoring for oil & gas pipelines, to new IoT applications such as monitoring public lighting in Smart Cities.
Whether data is gathered locally with wired or wireless technologies, via local base-stations or store-and-forward mechanisms, information from several remote sites is often backhauled to a single point for centralisation.
Eutelsat’s SmartLNB is a unique new satellite solution for low data rate consumption, providing highly efficient connectivity to low throughput applications via satellite. In addition to the traditional advantages of satellite, with ubiquitous, secure and resilient communications, SmartLNB is a cost-effective solution both in terms of equipment costs and optimisation of the satellite capacity.
