Ibadan, 1 March 2023. – Intelsat has announced that Deutsche Telekom IoT (DT IoT) intends to integrate Intelsat FlexEnterprise into its cloud-based Internet of Things (IoT) offering to extend powerful, easy-to-use IoT solutions to locations regardless of the availability of fiber or cellular connectivity options.

IoT services are increasingly valuable across a diverse array of businesses – collecting data from thousands of devices to analyze that data in a way that helps organizations increase system efficiency, reduce waste, monitor delicate environments, and provide new insights into processes and operations. By using FlexEnterprise to complement cellular connectivity, DT can extend the reach and effectiveness of its solution and drive better results for its customers.

The Intelsat FlexEnterprise satellite platform allows mobile network operators to offer services similar to terrestrial networks regardless of geographic location. For example, industrial IoT customers can connect devices in hard-to-reach places to control mountain-top or offshore wind turbines or assess flood risks by monitoring water levels in remote locations.

“Satellite connectivity allows IoT to connect physical objects and devices from anywhere globally to the virtual world to enhance real-time data collection, analysis, and decision making,” said Brian Jakins, Intelsat Networks general manager. “With FlexEnterprise, DT expands the usefulness of its IoT offering, especially for widely distributed applications like renewable energy infrastructure and green IoT environmental monitoring.”

Likewise, Dennis Nikles, CEO of Deutsche Telekom IoT GmbH, added, “by integrating satellite connectivity into our DT IoT offering, we connect everything everywhere and reshape the future of global IoT networking,” said. “Our customers now have a single point of contact, as well as a ‘network of networks’ with simple and ubiquitous connectivity that enables completely new possibilities.”
