04 March 2014: Australian provider Pivotel has joined Inmarsat’s distribution network for M2M services in the Asia-Pacific region to meet customer demand.
The leading provider of satellite M2M services will begin offering Inmarsat’s portfolio of L-band M2M services, specifically IsatData Pro and BGAN M2M, to its customers in Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia.
“We are very pleased to welcome Pivotel, one of the most successful M2M service providers in the Asia-Pac region, to Inmarsat’s family of distribution partners,” said Ronald Spithout, President of Inmarsat Enterprise.
“Pivotel’s end-users will now enjoy access to Inmarsat’s M2M portfolio, which features solutions for higher bandwidth requirements and unmatched reliability, backed by Inmarsat’s always-on global mobile satellite network.”
The Queensland-based company is one of four licensed Australian mobile telecommunications carriers.
It provides satellite and cellular M2M in the region, focusing on transportation and occupational health and safety, as well as asset tracking in the mining, oil and gas and local government sectors.
As a distribution partner (DP), Pivotel is now looking to Inmarsat to help address demand for increased bandwidth and to capitalise on M2M growth opportunities in the market.
Peter Bolger, Chief Executive Officer of Pivotel Group, said: “Inmarsat’s ubiquity and reliability is unquestioned and they have a strong legacy and track record of success and innovation in the M2M space.
“The Inmarsat portfolio of M2M products and services is ideally suited to a range of segments we currently serve and opens up many more, so we are excited to embark on a long and mutually beneficial relationship in the Asia-Pac region.”
