What is SkyLink?
Introducing SkyLink – a performance-driven data management solution designed for mobile, remote, and global operations. SkyLink is a range of devices manufactured by Blue Sky Network and powered by award-winning Iridium satellite technology. SkyLink provides Global Line of SightSM coverage and utilises local GSM/LTE networks to forge a low-latency dual-mode, cloud-based service solution that’s second-to-none.
With SkyLink, users can access one of the most powerful satellite tracking solutions available. Users can rely on reliable connectivity for end-to-end sensor reporting and optimised asset utilisation. In addition, SkyLink provides access to a suite of digital resources that enable customisable reports, activity alerts, and dashboards that work 24/7 to capture all relevant information in real time.
SkyLink offers complete tracking visibility in areas where conventional lines of communication are unreliable or out of commission. Thanks to the power of the Iridium satellite network, SkyLink provides full and uninterrupted coverage of assets, even ones in motion that may otherwise move in and out of cellular range.
Blue Sky Network built SkyLink with the most advanced features possible, such as:
- Advanced Monitoring System
- Dual-Mode Capabilities
- Iridium Certus Service
SkyLink can capture and disseminate critical information with the advanced monitoring system, displaying it in an easily accessible and intuitive format. In addition, the system is entirely secure and accessible through a cloud-based portal.
SkyLink can transition from satellite to cellular and back again seamlessly without any dropped signal, thanks to its dual-mode capabilities. This enables complete coverage, operational efficiency, and service affordability. Stick to the cheaper cellular coverage where available. Then when cellular becomes unavailable, you have satellite connectivity as a backup.
And this is all made possible thanks to the Iridium Certus service. SkyLink leverages Iridium’s award-winning satellite technology and Global Line of SightSM to deliver the most reliable connectivity solution available at this price point.
In short, SkyLink is a versatile, reliable, accurate tracking system that ensures you stay on top of critical assets and keep in contact with colleagues in the field.
Our SkyLink Products
At GTC, we stock the entire range of SkyLink tracking solutions, all powered by Iridium satellite technology. The following products make up the range:
The 5100 delivers satellite connectivity that makes full use of the Iridium Certus L-Band service. It is a land-based voice and IP data solution that offers a suite of functions, from internet and VPN access to telemetry, remote monitoring, and dual-mode operation. With the 5100, you can access the web, send emails, share media, record and transmit data, send critical hardware and site data, etc.
It is designed for complete business safety, efficiency, and coverage continuity. It sports a slim profile that makes it easy to carry and mount to fixed or mobile units. Data can then be transferred in real-time from existing sensors, asset utilisation, and IoT/M2M monitoring tools.
The 5100 IoT also utilises the L-Band service and is a premium solution for asset management. It provides mid-band satellite data transfer capability for IP data, along with SCADA and sensor information. If you need any heavy lifting done, the device comes loaded with Edge computing. The IoT is perfect for tracking machinery and vehicles and can operate easily in remote locations.
Next up is the SkyLink 6100, a cost-effective maritime voice and IP data solution that provides voice and data support anywhere in the world. As with the 5100, it too features internet/ VPN access, telemetry, remote monitoring, and dual-mode capabilities. Where it differs is that it’s designed to support maritime operations.
Thanks to its lightweight, low SWAP design, it can be installed on manned and unmanned vessels. Applications include workboat operations, maritime IoT, security patrols and inspections, and even pleasure craft.
The SkyLink 7100 is designed to deliver continuous connectivity for UAS operations, serving as an all-in-one UAV IP datalink solution. This versatile mid-band satellite solution for UAVs and aviation comes loaded with features, such as:
- Command and Control – BVLOS Communications and Backhaul
- Telematics – Data Can be Recorded and Broadcast from Anywhere
- Low Latency – Quick Return Trip Times Thanks to Low-Earth-Orbit Satellites
- Remote Monitoring – Made Possible Through Accurate GNSS Tracking with Event Information
The 7100’s exceptional capabilities are intended to support autonomous communications and data monitoring beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS). Iridium Certus speciality broadband service ensures you enterprise-grade IP made possible by a constellation of 66 cross-linked satellites, ensuring complete operational efficiency and coverage.
Lastly, we have the SkyLink TOC BOX, an all-in-one communication solution designed for any application anywhere in the world. You can send and receive critical communications no matter where you are. The device is housed in a rugged case for maximum protection and is powered, as with all SkyLink devices, by the Iridium Certus network.
Users will be assured of enterprise-grade voice and mid-band data with high-quality voice, LAN connectivity, and Wi-Fi connectivity. The box contains everything you need to stay connected, from satellite and cellular modems to a GNSS modem, antennas, various access points, etc. The best part is that the device can be used with the case open or closed.
Now that you’ve had an opportunity to read a little about the various SkyLink products and how the Iridium Certus network powers them, you’re likely curious about how everything interacts. Blue Sky Network designed each device to play a crucial role in the ever-expanding SkyLink Ecosystem. But what does this all mean?
