Building the Narrowband Global Internet of Things Satellite Canopy: The Rise of Nanosatellites and CubeSats

Nanosatellites and CubeSats are poised to provide a global layer of low-cost communications for Internet of Things across multiple industries including maritime shipping, terrestrial trucking, precision agriculture, construction and trucking asset tracking, utility grid monitoring, and defense asset tracking. "Small satellites under 10kg payloads in low Earth orbits are set to fill the gap in terms of pricing that billion-dollar global HTS LEO/MEO/GEO constellations are not designed to service," said Bill Rojas, Adjunct Research Director, IDC Asia/Pacific. "Business and operational models for nanosatellites and CubeSats will center on low-data rate but near-real-time data transmissions while the large HTS business models will focus on bandwidth greater than 10Mbps in the downlink and up-link," he added.
