Inmarsat has joined forces with tRainmaking's Trade
and Transport Impact (T&TI) and Bluetech Accelerator to
create initiatives that directly support start-ups focused on IoT
and big data innovation in the maritime, ports and logistics
The programs will fund, support and mentor start-ups developing applications that aim to harness the power of IoT and big data to enhance safety, efficiency and sustainability. Inmarsat will collaborate with those start-ups to find a route to market via its global, high-speed satellite communications infrastructure that connects over 160,000 ships and yachts, as well as ports, road and rail networks across the world.
Inmarsat's Fleet Data solution is a bandwidth-inclusive IoT
platform that allows ship operators to instantly collect data
from onboard sensors, upload the data to a secure cloud-based
platform and interface with applications from third-party
application developers. Inmarsat's Industrial IoT solutions are
also helping drive better decision-making and efficiencies on
land with fleet management and rail projects across the mining
and transport sectors.
