Skylo, Omnicomm enable NB-IoT fuel management solution


Skylo, an affordable end-to-end narrowband IoT solution connecting machine and sensor data via satellite, has partnered with Omnicomm, a developer and manufacturer of fleet and fuel management solutions.

The companies will integrate and deliver a complete fuel management IoT solution, giving large and small businesses who own fleets the ability to monitor and account for fuel usage in real time.

Customers can deploy an easy-to-use and affordable IoT fuel management solution that provides even the most remotely located application users with real time, actionable insights, and historical data from anywhere, at any time. This full stack solution helps business owners improve fuel efficiency and stop fuel theft, no matter where fleets are located.

“Skylo’s affordability and ubiquity offers customers with a new kind of machine data solution, one that is much needed, especially in industries who count on machines to run their business,” said Mohit Mehrotra, business head and Managing Director, Omnicomm India and South Asia. “We’re excited to partner with Skylo to deliver a solution to large and small companies who want to take full advantage of our extremely reliable and highly accurate fuel level sensors. From logistics to mining and construction to oil and gas, our customers want to know more about their equipment, especially in underserved, unconnected regions.”

“As fuel costs continue to spike, the global logistics industry, specifically, needs to find ways to manage and monitor fuel usage, theft, as well as loss due to faulty or aging equipment,” commented Skylo COO Angira Agrawal. “Simultaneously, traditionally analog businesses are requiring reliable connectivity everywhere. The combination of Skylo’s IoT always-on network with Omnicomm’s advanced sensors gives fleet owners real-time insights to make faster, smarter decisions.”

Skylo delivers reliable coverage to customers to send and receive critical 2-way messaging, alerts, and continuously transmit valuable sensor data including location, temperature, vibration, and much more, even where no cellular network exists. The Skylo Hub is a small, rugged terminal that reads sensors and transmits data to the Skylo Satellite Network. Easily manageable through the Skylo Data Platform, mobile or desktop, users are armed with the ability to take immediate and appropriate action to improve their business.

Omnicomm’s high-precision capacitive fuel level sensors are critical for accurate and effective fuel monitoring, empowering fleet operators to monitor fuel consumption, improve fuel and fleet efficiency, detect vehicle idling and engine hours, detect fuel wastage and theft, forecast costs and technical maintenance at any time. Omnicomm’ sensors are the most robust and reliable (highest possible ingress protection rating of IP69K) on the market, with a long work-life which deliver consistently high accuracy data, even in extreme conditions.
