SD-WAN for Utilities infrastructure

Secure, flexible and reliable wireless connectivity for IoT & SCADA

OWNE is the ideal connectivity solution for the critical data transfer requirements of IoT and SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition). By incorporating GEO and LEO (OneWeb) satellites with microwave, 4G and 5G terrestrial networks, it enables a robust, highly available and secure service, giving you fast access to your operational data wherever your devices are located.

An increasing number of distributed organisations across a wide range of industries are harnessing the benefits of IoT and SCADA for remotely monitoring their assets. OWNE enables fast and cost-effective deployment of connectivity to these devices, with the added flexibility that allows deactivation and relocation of the service to other locations as required. From utilities' infrastructure or farming devices in remote outdoor sites to stores, offices and shopping centres in built-up areas, OWNE enables efficient data transfer that optimises operations and reduces downtime.

An always-on service with our backup connectivity solution

Minimise operational downtime and its associated costs with our secure backup connectivity option. Our backup connectivity solution uses true secondary path technology, completely independent of terrestrial infrastructure, to keep your network connected 24/7, wherever your site is located, even in the most remote regions of the UK and Europe.

With integrated SD-WAN capability and link load balancing, our wireless WAN solution enables a seamless transition from the primary link to a secondary one should any service degradation occur, ensuring your critical application sessions are not compromised.

Our backup connectivity solution comprises further value-adds, including:

  • Augmentation to primary bandwidth capacity to increase capacity during peak times
  • Out-of-band management for monitoring and triage of onsite infrastructure, independent of the primary circuit
  • Fully flexibility to deactivate and relocate according to your operational needs
