The Starnote Starter Kit contains everything you need to add satellite failover to any cellular or Wi-Fi Notecard-based solution. Starnote includes satellite uplink and downlink data with the cost of the device in partnership with Skylo. Starnote also provides a JSON-based programing interface consistent with the Notecard, providing developers with access to yet another major Radio Access Technology (RAT) using straightforward, accessible semantics. And with 18KB of data included and no monthly fees, it's an affordable satellite IoT backup device!

Starnote is a Notecard accessory that is intended to disrupt the conventional wisdom that using satellite requires a high hardware investment (in the hundreds of dollars) of monthly device fees even when devices aren’t communicating with satellites.

As an accessory, Starnote is not a Notecard. But is meant to be used with the Notecard, and works with Cellular, Cell+WiFi, and WiFi. From a developer’s point of view, Starnote operates as an additional available RAT for the Notecard. A developer uses the Notecard API to specify in the Notecard’s mode of operations when to fallback to Satellite and the Notecard handles communications between itself and Starnote.
