Network Innovations provides a suite of mobile and stationary Satellite communications solutions for wireless SCADA/telemetry/M2M data communications that operate globally. We help you determine the right solution for your requirements and provide the expertise to help you plan, integrate, test, deploy and operate a satellite communications solution for your SCADA or telemetry operations. Our solutions bring cost savings, timely operational results and improved functionality.

Satellite Communications Benefits for M2M, SCADA & Telemetry

Satellite communications for SCADA networks form a reliable alternative to traditional methods. The benefits of our satellite based communications solutions include:

  • Portable systems with a short implementation cycle
  • Broadcast networks (multiple stations can receive a single message)
  • Very cost effective compared with land lines or radio towers
  • Highly reliable with world-wide coverage
  • Ease of integration with PLC/RTUs through our Universal Communications Adapter (UCA)


BGAN M2M service provides a new terminal option and rate plans focused on telemetry and SCADA applications.

Ideally suited for high frequency, very low latency data reporting, BGAN M2M is well suited for monitoring fixed assets such as pipelines and oil well heads, or back-hauling electricity consumption data within a utility.

BGAN M2M is a fixed Standard IP service, offering data speeds in excess of 100 Kbps in both directions.  It also has the capability to transmit larger data sets and interact with remote devices on an IP session.

Universal Communications Adapter

Network Innovations’ Universal Communications Adapter (UCA) adds value to your M2M or SCADA operations. The UCA interfaces with your PLC/RTU’s to provide programmable scheduling, multiple holding registers to store files for local polling, programmable thresholds for report by exception monitoring, and the ability to make remote programming changes to RTUs. The UCA provides the added intelligence to enable the PLC/RTU to communicate with satellite modems including support for Modbus.
