Mopeka has announced a new addition to their communication protocols, integrating Globalstar’s satellite connectivity into their existing suite of options. Through this enhancement, Mopeka aims to provide its clientele with a cost-effective and reliable means of connecting to their sensors, regardless of their location anywhere in the world.
Mopeka’s patented Sonar Tank Monitoring solutions have revolutionized the industry with their accuracy, ease of installation, and seamless communication. Whether it’s monitoring Propane, Heating Oil, Water, Anhydrous, or other liquid commodities, sonar tank monitoring optimizes volume management and streamlines supply chain operations. However, the challenge of overcoming distance constraints from conventional cell towers has hindered effective communication in certain deployments. The introduction of satellite connectivity eliminates this obstacle.
Globalstar owns and operates a Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite network, offering reliable and ubiquitous connectivity for data transmission and asset tracking at an affordable cost. This network allows companies like Mopeka to extend the connectivity of their monitoring solutions, serving clients beyond the reach of terrestrial networks, particularly for low bandwidth IoT use cases.
Kevin Jaffe, COO of Mopeka, emphasized the significance of this advancement, stating, “Our clients expect the ability to connect to their sensors from anywhere to everywhere. It’s crucial. They have data and telemetry needs that are only going to increase. At Mopeka, we understand and offer that connectivity, now more than ever, through our engagement with Globalstar. Satellite connectivity is a differentiator. It gives our clients, no matter how remote, the ability to monitor and measure tank volume and utilization at a reasonable cost.”
The integration of Globalstar’s satellite technology with Mopeka’s Sonar Tank Monitoring Solutions aims to enhance the accessibility, reliability, and cost-effectiveness of tank monitoring worldwide. By bridging the communication gap across vast distances, Mopeka reaffirms its commitment to delivering cutting-edge solutions that cater to the evolving needs of its customers.
