Myriota announced the launch of their Myriota mouse™; a plug and play external antenna custom designed for IoT satellite applications.
The IoT enables businesses to understand exactly where their assets are located, a critical requirement for industries such as transportation and logistics, agriculture, environment, defense, and utilities. Satellite connectivity is integral to the successful communication of IoT devices, with many of these industry assets located in – or moving through – areas where traditional connectivity is intermittent or non-existent.
The Myriota Mouse ™ delivers high performance on the Myriota network and is manufactured to meet protection against ingress (IP-65) and accelerated weathering (ASTM-G154) standards. The device was developed in consultation with a panel of 25 Myriota customers which included Future fleet and Ping monitor, which manufacture Myriota-compatible products to connect critical industries, such as transportation and logistics, utilities, environment and agriculture.
Myriota created the Myriota Mouse ™ to help the company’s diverse lineup of OEM partners reach their markets faster and to meet growing end-user demand, with 75 billion devices expected to be connected to the Internet in the world. world by 2025. With the Myriota Mouse ™, developers can easily integrate with the secure and ultra-energy efficient Myriota module and enable communication between ground resources and Myriota’s constellation of small LEO satellites.
Myriota CTO and co-founder, Dr. David Haley, stated that the Myriota Mouse ™ uses design thinking methodology; an iterative, human-centric process used by designers to solve problems, leading to a solid end result that provides clients with a fast and accurate design cycle. “Until now, the antennas were not designed to meet the needs of direct orbit IoT applications, which is why Myriota, in close collaboration with our OEM partners, has developed the Myriota Mouse ™. The Myriota Mouse ™ is a tailor-made antenna for IoT that takes the guesswork out of design and quickly takes customers from idea to Myriota Network connectivity,” he said. “Device design and function has been validated by our valued Myriota partners, with everything from product design to functionality and product testing tested.. “
The launch of the Myriota Mouse ™ comes after the company announced its partnership with Spire to expand their global constellation of satellites and achieve near real-time connectivity by the end of 2022.
