Use cases

Smart Mobility

Connected smart vehicles/drones are entering the market and offer companies the chance to deliver goods further and in more efficient ways. Tracking of fleets and goods is not possible outside cities where no cellular coverage available. OQ offers an end-to-end satellite 5G integrated solution that allows you to monitor your assets and fleet in realtime, anywhere they may go. We can also support bi-directional communication to machines such as banking ATMs in poor connectivity areas. We provide a dual satellite-terrestrial solution that can switch automatically between our and partner networks.

Smart Ocean

Maritime connectivity today is limited to expensive satellite VSAT and M2M high-end terminals, this is not suitable for IoT data collection and control. We help you to track fishing boats, smart nets, weather buoys, and commercial containers. In addition to that we can provide realtime tracking solutions for transport ships and yachts. Finally managing sensors and devices on offshore rigs, under water pipes and oil wells have never been easier, all using a highly secure and reliable system.

Smart Farm

Farms suffer globally form lack of cellular connectivity. IoT-based smart farming involves monitoring the crop field with the help of sensors (light, humidity, temperature, soil moisture). These applications requires permanent and reliable telecommunication coverage - Our global solution can achieve this purpose easily by integrating our module to your smart farming devices which gives you access to our data platform for very low cost and within record time.

Smart Energy

Our solution enables you to run your operations efficiently, in full capacity and avoid disruption or loss of assets by giving you full access remotely to manage your applications. This includes SCADA systems, pipeline monitoring and leak detection, predictive maintenance reports of machinery and windmills, inventory and asset tracking, mining, environmental monitoring, oilfields monitoring, tracking of workers and their well-being, and finally industrial smart metering.

Product

Hybrid Satellite-Cellular Terminal

Our product is a flexible, robust and programmable dual mode terminal with pre-paid data packages. It is ideal for remotely monitoring and controlling fixed and mobile assets in industries as diverse as transportation, oil and gas, utilities, maritime, agriculture and more. It supports GSM/LTE-M/NB-IoT and Satellite link both in uplink and downlink. It can connect to 1000 sensors using multiple I/Os. It supports multiple SIMs and can be powered with a battery that survives multiple years. All this for at a fraction of the cost used by incumbent operators.

Interoperable

Compatible with the world open 3GPP standards – No lock-up into proprietary technology.

Low cost

Data packages and devices are 10 times cheaper than current satellite market offerings.

Low power

Technology

How it works?

Using a global constellation of low earth orbit Nanosatellites and GEO orbit large satellites, we are able to provide coverage any where in the world. The network is composed of OQ's own LEO satellites and partner GEO satellites. This way we can access any region on Earth and fill the coverage gaps. The user is provided ubiqutous cellular connectvity roaming between terrestrial, LEO and GEO networks. We take care of the handover. Unlike Elon Musk’s Starlink that is used for broadband video and internet, our radio air-link is compatible with Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) which was standardized in 3GPP Release 13 and is considered for 5G massive machine communication. We have published patents in how to make NB-IoT works over satellites.

Licensed Frequency Access

We are licensing our space network globally and use licensed frequency bands, this way you do not need to worry about interference, quality of service, and security threats, unlike other unlicensed satellite IoT networks. Moreover, our frequency bands are compatible with mobile bands so your cellular device radio can work on our satellites with no modification!

High Altitude Platforms

Drones

OQ Technology developed the IP of cellular base station software and hardware that can function in a power limited non-terrestrial moving objects. Imagine the cell towers in the sky moving at more than 7 Km/s at distances of hundreds of kilometers away. This Base Station Box (the payload) can be fitted on LEO satellites, partner GEO hubs, or even HAPS and drones to provide instantaneous local or global 5G IoT coverage in poorly connected areas, or during disasters when terrestrial networks are no longer available. Because we build our own software we can control the quality and capacity of the service to give our users the best and most secure experience.
