Adelaide-based connectivity provider for nanosatellite Internet of Things devices, Myriota, has started offering commercial IoT services in the US and Canada with the launch of the first of three nanosatellites on Rocket Lab's "They Go Up So Fast" mission.

Each weighs less than 7kgs and is about the size of a loaf of bread, the company said in a statement, adding that this would make it a second-generation network for the firm.

Alongside the launch, Myriota is offering a new developer toolkit. It already has a number of commercial products such Goanna Ag's rain gauge and water-tank level monitor (GoRain and GoTank), Yabby's dam level monitor, (Yabby Floating Level Sensor) and the Yabby Level Sensor and Rain Gauge.

"The launch of our second-generation network ushers in a new era for the global IoT sector – one where data from devices is accessible anywhere on the planet in a secure and affordable manner," said Dr David Haley, Myriota co-founder and chief technology officer.

"Myriota Certified devices developed by our customers are already in the hands of end users and are revolutionising their industries.

"With our second-generation platform they will now be able to send more messages and larger amounts of data each day.

"We are very excited to be launching our commercial service in the US and Canada. This expansion puts us in pole position in the race to provide connectivity everywhere to support a global IoT market that is expected to triple in size to more than 25.4 billion devices by 2030.

"As the first network of our kind to be supporting commercially available products, we have already demonstrated the power of our unique direct-to-orbit technologies to transform the IoT sector.

"We see huge potential to help our customers develop and bring new IoT driven solutions to the American and Canadian markets."

The company claims its second-generation network will:

  • Reduce latency and enable faster transfer of data between assets located anywhere on Earth and Myriota's constellation;
  • Increase uplink capacity on the network, allowing customers to send larger amounts of data from devices each day;
  • Increase downlink capacity on the network, enhancing Myriota cloud-to-device communications capabilities including existing over-the-air updates; and
  • Support activation of commercial network services in the US and Canada.
