KNET to launch IoT service based on AYECKA technology

The premium wholly Ghanaian-owned African continental technology firm KNET Ghana Ltd will launch its new IoT service called "IoT anywhere". This exciting solution will be delivered in cooperation with AYECKA who will provide the underline technology.

KNET’s new branded service “IoT Anywhere" will provide customers with the ability to automate processes, cut out operational costs and have up to date information on their systems.

The service will be delivered across various different sectors - Manufacturing, Agriculture, Healthcare, Waste & Power Management among many others.

AYECKA will provide KNET the HUB technology as well as the new AR1100 user terminal.

The unique technology allows for high performance and very efficient use of the bandwidth, all in low cost user terminals.

AYECKA will supply the complete technology solution, enabling KNET to offer an unprecedented IoT service in Africa.

KNET will offer its “IoT Anywhere” service using Ayecka’s advanced VSAT IoT Network, capable of supporting many 10,000’s of IoT terminals using a scalable HUB architecture.

The system was further designed to be most efficient in the use of the satellite resource, providing best industry bit/MHz ratio. All of this, together with the use of Ayecka’s AR1100 all-outdoor VSAT, reduces dramatically the total cost of ownership for KNET and subsequently for its customers, who only need a TVRO dish (90CM Receive only dish) to use this service.

Dedicated VPN networks can be built into this product which will provide secure & encrypted transfer of data through a private ‘tunnel’. This product also gives you instant national network access which is independent of GSM availability. The range of services that our IOT platform provides includes but are not limited to M2M communications, Mobile money connectivity, supports fuel level monitoring at stations, supports dedicated payment platforms for E-commerce. This will also bring more inclusivity to the rural areas of Ghana.

Avi Barda, President of AYECKA: "I am honoured to cooperate with KNET, The AYECKA technology will enable KNET's service to offer its customers in Africa the opportunity to deploy IoT networks to serve multiple applications, all in an affordable price of hardware and service".

Richard Hlomador, Chairman and CEO KNET: “We are delighted to continue our commitment to ensure our customers across the world’s fastest growing economies have access to global standards of value-added services. “IoT Anywhere” is the latest in our diverse portfolio of products. KNET has been providing satellite services for the past 22 years with the SES fleet of satellites at our Teleport and Network Operations Centre located at McCarthy Hills. This will make this service available for 22 West African countries. The cost of ownership of this product is similar to the TVRO dish (90CM Receive only dish) is all you need. We are very excited to continue to pursue our vision to offer top tier technology solutions to a diverse range of clients across Africa
