Kymeta, the communications company making good on the promise of global, mobile connectivity—recently demonstrated how satellites enable always-connected mobile communications through hybrid satellite and cellular network solutions, with high-throughput satellite capacity provided by partner, Intelsat. Kymeta eliminates the need for traditional satellite dishes, opening a new world of hybrid and highly integrated, always-on connections. Attendees to Mobile World Congress witnessed multiple use cases demonstrated at booth OA3A.24 from February 26th – March 1st.
Kymeta’s mTenna™ technology, KyWay™ terminals and KALO™ access services provide seamless connectivity for cars, trucks, buses, off-road vehicles, vessels, RVs, trains, and cellular networks. “For mobile carriers, seamless connections within city limits—where cellular infrastructure currently exists—is apt to be delivered through the full implementation of 5G. We’re seeing that come to fruition,” said Dr. Nathan Kundtz, President, CEO and Founder, Kymeta. “But what about the question of a seamless, always-connected experience between cities? That’s where Kymeta comes in. We are working to offer mobile carriers the ability to provide a broader connected experience, along with business continuity, extended networks, and backhaul support.”
Kymeta showcased how gaining access to satellite networks will fill communications gaps and provide a full end-to-end solution for a seamless connected experience. True mobility in which cars, trains, buses, and trucks remain connected through a hybrid network approach means on-the-move vehicular software updates, and increased safety and security for drivers and passengers.
The conversation at Mobile World Congress included land and IoT applications including construction site administration, cargo tracking, agriculture, asset tracking, mining operations, fleet operations and more.
Kymeta solutions positively impact every industry and community with a need to connect to the internet. The company seeks to bring communities together where the lack of communications solutions has been a roadblock to participation in the global economy. The demonstration in booth OA3A.24 during Mobile World Congress featured two use cases for seamless communications. The first demonstration features Coca-Cola’s EKOCENTER kiosk, and shows how Kymeta can support internet access for remote communities and enable access to information, education, healthcare, and a host of other social and economic opportunities. The second demonstration will show how reliable connectivity is provided for first responders and disaster relief efforts, both in remote areas and when communications become unavailable after a natural disaster, providing a crucial means of getting resources to where they are needed the most.
