Dear MSUA members and satellite mobility followers,  

I wanted to highlight for your attention a recent webinar made available by MSUA member Orbcomm, entitled Supercharge Your IoT and M2M Solutions. Throughout the upcoming year, MSUA will feature webinar content developed by our member organizations.  This is just one of the many benefits offered with a 2019 MSUA membership -- on sale now through 31 December 2018.  See details below.  

In this webinar, you'll learn what Orbcomm is doing to help satellite mobility VARs quicken their time to market, increase revenue, and reduce complexity in IoT and M2M solution deployment. For questions about satellite/cellular connectivity, hardware, or remote monitoring and control in general, click to reach an Orbcomm IoT representative.

PS - MSUA also appreciates content shared with us by our industry partners.  This week we thank Satellite Finance for making the following article available to Mobility News Readers.
