Everything you need to develop a solution with the Astrocast IoT network
Reliable connection thanks to acknowledged messages from and to your IoT assets.
Compact system size and affordable data plans enable a cost-effective global communication service.
Optimized hardware, communication protocol and network for low energy operation and longest battery life.
The Astronode S technology embeds an optimized communication protocol, paired up with an Astrocast antenna for direct-to-satellite communication with our constellation. The Astronode S technology allows customers to connect and communicate with all of their assets in remote areas not covered by terrestrial networks.Meet the Astronode S
The Astrocast API allows customers to manage their Astronode S modules and devices, retrieve messages received from their assets, and send commands back, through a secure REST API built on standard JSON messages. Customers control access and permissions to their devices and data through access tokens.
The Astrocast Portal allows customers to manage their Astronode S modules and devices through a user-friendly web application. Customers can retrieve messages received from their assets and send commands back around the globe, access their account and data and grant additional access and permissions to other users.

How do the Astrocast Satellite IoT data plans work?
We offer a combination of five standard plans, adapted to an expected volume of data transmission by modules that are in operation, covering 1, 5, 15, 30 or 60 KB per month per module. No fee is applied for switching between those standard plans, allowing users to control their spending more easily.
In summary, our data plans are based on the following pricing structure:
PLAN 1: Data included 1kB/device for $1.30/month
PLAN 5: Data included 5kB/device for $2.40/month
PLAN 15: Data included 15kB/device for $3.50/month
PLAN 30: Data included 30kB/device for $6/month
PLAN 60: Data included 60kB/device for $11/month
Astrocast offers minimum contract lengths that vary between three to five years, to cover long-term operations with no activation fees for the modules accessing our network. For more information visit our Satellite IoT data plans article.
How can I send downlink commands to my assets?
Downlink commands can be sent to your assets manually in the Astrocast portal, or via the API. Find out more on the Astrocast 101 video “Send a downlink command to the Astronode S“.
Are my messages and data secure?
Astrocast’s network was built with sensitive industries and customers in mind. Our system features secure end-to-end 256-Bit encryption with unique device keys and authenticated access. Visit our Security page to find out more about our state-of-the-art secure protocol to keep your devices and transmissions secure.
Does my asset know if the sent data was received successfully?
Yes, all messages are acknowledged to the sender by the satellite upon reception. If a message is not acknowledged, the Astronode S will resend it on the next satellite contact.
