Typically, remote asset tracking devices are limited by their batteries in terms of data transmission payload and frequency. Many devices in the market today may also be restricted by the locations where they can be used physically and safely due to the remote nature of the assets and the potentially combustible environments, respectively.
To continue advancing their position as a leading provider of innovative, affordable satellite solutions for M2M/IoT markets, Globalstar sought a solar-powered device for remote monitoring capable of functioning in challenging and isolated environments, providing more frequent data transmissions cost-effectively, and maximizing field longevity without battery changes or other maintenance.
A leading provider of mobile satellite voice and data services, Globalstar helps companies conduct business smarter and faster using tools like asset and personal tracking, data monitoring, SCADA, and IoT applications. Globalstar works with industries around the world including government, emergency management, marine, logging, mining, transportation, outdoor recreation, and oil and gas.
In 2016, Carmanah stepped beyond solar lighting to see if we could use our expertise for other industries. The company signed a strategic multi-year agreement with Globalstar to collaborate on the design, development, and supply of the next generation of Globalstar IoT data devices that would incorporate solar-powered charging capabilities with the data capture and transmission services Globalstar is known for. Carmanah engineered a solar-powered asset tracker and monitoring solution offering a 10-year battery life and intrinsic safety. Globalstar fully expects the unparalleled safety, extended field life and value of the SmartOne Solar to help drive sales opportunities across a multitude of industries and markets around the world.
Partnering with a leader in solar manufacturing such as Carmanah allowed us to develop a product to help our customers affordably streamline remote M2M and IoT operations over Globalstar’s modern and fast satellite network.
Today, remote monitoring and management (RMM) is becoming more common among businesses looking to go beyond basic asset management. Meet the SmartOne Solar from Globalstar and explore the many ways it combines the latest in RMM technology from Globalstar with the rugged design and solar capabilities from Carmanah.
