SkyLab Networks – Top 10 APAC Energy Tech Solution Provider 2018


Singapore, 7th June 2018 – The demand for renewable energy continues to grow exponentially around the world and this rapid growth is urging for new technologies to support its continued acceleration. Amongst all is collection valuable data from renewable energy farms, which inherently tend to be remotely located and vast, through Internet of Things (IoT). This data can be the key to reducing downtime, managing power generation against demand, improving cost saving and increasing efficiency for day to day operations. The IoT represents a new reality, paving the way for smarter and greener energy, however, the fast adoption of IoT will lead to new sets of challenges that many don’t realise. Despite being seen as a futuristic way of living, the truth is that the traditional protocols that carry IoT data today have already become obsolete. Meaning utility companies are now faced with numerous network challenges, with the main three being; network congestion, latency and packet loss. Looking ahead, there will be unprecedented volumes of data to be collected, and the current solution will not be able to cope with it.


Here enters SkyLab with its middleware protocol translation solution which smoothens the journey of data packets and improves network performance with adaptive congestion control. “We are focused on three areas: strengthening network security, improving network latency, and enabling utilities to leverage the power of the cloud,” says Gary Kwang, CEO of SkyLab. With a proven track record of enabling secure data harvesting and archiving in realteam, SkyLab empowers utilities in the renewable energy sector with the ability to effectively and comprehensively collect data, which can provide insights for asset optimization and executing proactive actions for identifying and solving potential bottlenecks in networks.

“While wireless infrastructure remains the best way to create a smart energy environment, present wireless infrastructure being highly heterogeneous is a major impediment in that direction,” says Gary. With the multiprotocol translation solution, data is transferred quickly over nonhomogenous wireless networks in real-time for performing secure and efficient data processing and analytics. Utilities can leverage the better network bandwidth for receiving seamless alerts from the sensors that might be located in infrastructurally impoverished locations. In addition, SkyLab’s intuitive portal allows utilities company to monitor and efficiently manage those assets remotely.

At the core of what differentiates SkyLab, is its proficiency in combining the separate components of a multidisciplinary like industrial solution. The company provides the “knowhow” required to materialise their IoT initiatives, from cloud technology, data aggregation and transmission to sensor deployment, all under one roof and within their budget. SkyLab’s consultants and engineers can help these utilities to design robust network and communication architectures to address bandwidth requirements, network interference and latency issues. “And we do all that with a customer-centric strategy in mind, helping them shorten the learning curve to adopt IoT,” adds Gary. “Our consulting arm works closely with customers to understand their business goals and develops a complete solution that delivers the best business outcome and helps achieve significant financial returns, cost savings, and operational excellence for our customers.”


In one instance, Sunseap, one of South East Asia’s largest clean energy solutions provider, approached SkyLab with the need for monitoring solar panel energy production and performance by transmitting critical data from solar panels. With real-time performance dashboards and accurate reporting, the client was able to save 15 to 25 percent of their costs every year, with accurate end- customer billing for all the power produced and consumed, or sold to other parties. Forging ahead, the firm plans to introduce to the market a new solution called “Data Acceleration- as-a-Service. “This will be an important component as IoT service grow exponentially worldwide,” concludes Gary.
