One example of how Hiberband Direct can help you connect your assets.

Step 1 image
Step 1: Integrate and measure

Remotely deployed sensors measure temperature, soil moisture, water levels and submit their data to the integrated Hiberband modem.

Step 2 image
Step 2: Direct-to-satellite

Our nanosatellite passes overhead and the modem sends its data up. The satellite receives and drops the data at the nearest ground station, and voila, it is now available on the cloud.

Step 3 image
Step 3: Receive and monitor

The plantation owner views the data in a personalized dashboard, displaying the conditions of the land and providing the owner with insights to act and optimize plantation operations.

Hiber kit

Developer Kit for
Hiberband Direct.

In the box is a Hiberband-enabled modem to easily access IoT connectivity from anywhere on Earth. It's a developer's Christmas and birthday present in one. Feel free to try new ideas. Invent the previously thought impossible. To test the connection. Even make mistakes. It's a playground or sandbox where the only limit really is the imagination.

Welcome to the Nitty gritty

Hiberband Direct networks specifications.

Hiberband Direct is the first low-power direct-to-satellite connectivity service, making use of a single global technology standard. Connect to Hiberband by integrating the compact and easy to integrate modem, designed to enable mass IoT deployments.

Hiberband is the first Low Power Global Area Network (LPGAN), offered by Hiber. Hiberband delivers global connectivity for sensor and Internet of Things (IoT) related devices at affordable cost, by launching our own satellite network. This makes our service the first truly global IoT network.

Yes, Hiber has launched its first two satellites end of 2018. These satellites are in, in a polar sun-synchronous Low Earth Orbit (LEO), rotating around the earth at approximately 600km.

Our daily messaging service will be available from only a few euros per device per year.
