Mopeka® has an addition to their communication protocols. This enhancement involves the integration of Globalstar‘s satellite connectivity to extend the capability of Mopeka’s existing suite of options, that includes Bluetooth, WiFi, and Global 4G LTE networks. This expansion empowers Mopeka’s clientele with a cost-effective and reliable means of connecting to their sensors, regardless of their location anywhere in the world.
The rapid proliferation of Sonar Tank Monitoring, using Mopeka’s patented solutions, has transformed the industry, and is largely attributed to the accuracy, ease of installation, and seamless communication provided by Mopeka’s technology. Whether it involves monitoring Propane, Heating Oil, Water, Anhydrous, or other liquid commodities, sonar tank monitoring optimizes the management of existing volumes and streamlines supply chain operations. However, the challenge of overcoming the “tyranny of distance” from conventional cell towers has, at times, hindered certain deployments from effectively communicating. With the introduction of satellite connectivity, this challenge is now obsolete.
Globalstar owns and operates a Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite network that provides reliable, ubiquitous connectivity for data transmission and asset tracking at an affordable cost. Ideal for low bandwidth IoT use cases, Globalstar allows companies like Mopeka to extend the connectivity of their monitoring solutions, servicing clients beyond the reach of terrestrial networks.
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.”
“Globalstar satellite technology combined with Mopeka solutions ensure reliable, global connectivity for their customers. We are pleased to help expand their capability for monitoring,” said Jake Rembert, Vice President of Sales for Globalstar.
The integration of Globalstar’s satellite technology with Mopeka’s Sonar Tank Monitoring Solutions begins the process of enhancing 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.
