SAT4M2M and Fujitsu Electronics team up for satellite IoT communication

SAT4M2M and Fujitsu Electronics are to cooperate on the development of a dedicated module enabling IoT communications via satellites.

The cooperation between the two companies aims at the design, development and production of a new range of IoT LPWA (Low Power Wide Area) modules for Internet of Things (IoT) markets.

It is intended that the module will enable communication to Low Earth Orbits (LEO) satellite payloads according to the SAT4M2M developed protocol of communication and enable global coverage with several IoT messages a day and have a high capacity serving thousands of connected objects simultaneously.

The modules will be designed to have low battery consumption, giving over five years of autonomous operation using small batteries and will easily integrate with terrestrial LPWA solutions (Sigfox, Lora, Weightless and NB IoT), GNSS capabilities (GPS, Glonass and Galileo) and SPI/I2C sensors.
