Astrocast, a leading global nanosatellite IoT network operator, has announced it has signed a distribution agreement with Mouser Electronics, a global distributor of semiconductors and electronic components, to stock and distribute Astrocast’s Satellite IoT (SatIoT) technology.

Astrocast’s core technology – the Astronode S communication module and its patch antenna, as well as the Astronode S+, a ready-to-install satellite communication device – will be made available to developers and Systems Integrators across the world to access via Mouser’s e-commerce platform, alongside a full spectrum of electronic components.

The company says this development greatly extends Astrocast’s reach, enabling customers in Australia, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom to source everything they need for their IoT projects or prototypes easily, as they strive to take advantage of SatIoT capabilities.

Astrocast joins over 1200 industry-leading brands in Mouser’s webshop. As one of the leading global authorised distributors of semiconductors and electronic components, Mouser specialises in rapidly introducing the newest products and technologies to the market for design engineers and buyer communities across the world to take advantage of.

Its distribution centre is equipped with state-of-the-art wireless warehouse management systems that enable Mouser to process orders 24/7 and to deliver pick-and-ship operations to its customers.

Fabien Jordan, CEO and Co-Founder, Astrocast says, “This is a fantastic development for Astrocast extending our reach to developers and Systems Integrators through a highly regarded, reputable global distributor. Design engineers, organisations and the developer community can easily access the benefits of low-power, bidirectional SatIoT technology affordably through Mouser’s webshop. They can effortlessly integrate our hardware and connectivity into their IoT devices or explore new IoT business cases and prototypes, as they have access to our technology, and everything needed to develop an IoT solution.
