Wyld Networks and Astrocast sign a multi-year contract


Astrocast and Wyld Networks (Wyld) have announced the signature of a multi-year contract with an ambition to target a joint business of over 200 million messages. This will extend Wyld Networks’ capacity and coverage to deliver satellite IoT (SatIoT) data to its customers expanding operations in the most remote areas of the world.


Astrocast’s SatIoT communication technology is powered by a fully operational constellation of currently 14 satellites and provides users with data connectivity in areas where terrestrial coverage does not reach. Data from this SatIoT network will be transmitted through Wyld Networks’ system for distribution/connectivity to its end customers’ applications. This approach complements and extends Wyld’s current satellite IoT offering to clients.


With 85% of the globe lacking terrestrial coverage, Astrocast’s Satellite IoT solution will provide Wyld’s customers greater coverage in regions that are typically remote, as well as a scalable solution to blend IoT operations and application usage across the globe. Notably, Astrocast’s technology is cost effective for low data-rate use cases; provides bidirectional communication that allows devices to send commands to/from assets; and ensures that applications have the capability to last remotely for many years thanks to low power consumption. These capabilities open the opportunity to develop new use cases in sectors such as agriculture, energy and logistics.


“The power of IoT to transform business operations is irrefutable,” said Alastair Williamson, CEO, Wyld Networks. “Millions of sensors and devices are being added to the Internet of Things and the rate continues to accelerate. Wyld’s partnership with Astrocast will extend our ability to deliver additional coverage, use cases and data to businesses of all sizes who will benefit from the power of Satellite IoT.”


“83% of organisations claim improvement in efficiency when introducing IoT technologies into their businesses correctly. Our partnership with Wyld Networks represents a step further: to facilitate global IoT access. We’re looking forward to working together and a prosperous and innovative working relationship,” adds Fabien Jordan, CEO and Co-Founder, Astrocast.
