M2M Data Corporation , a provider of Internet-based Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), now offers a satellite-based economy SCADA system. The new system combines narrow bandwidth satellite communications with M2M's compact iAdaptor communications gateway.

Donald Wallace, M2M Data Corp.'s COO and vice president of engineering and operations, says the advantages of the new satellite SCADA boil down to accessibility and affordability.

On the accessibility side, M2M tapped into both the European satellite infrastructure and its own telecommunications and data facilities in the U.S. The company's use of both open standards and the Internet then allowed M2M to tie together its geographically dispersed infrastructure for the new SCADA system.

From an affordability standpoint, M2M's ''platform'' SCADA technologies and its open standards architectures were leveraged to develop a more efficient, reliable and cost-effective use of low bandwidth satellite communications.
