Solinst, CityKinect join forces to enhance worldwide cellular connectivity

June 1, 2022  By Solinst Canada Ltd.

Solinst Canada Ltd. has entered into a partnership with CityKinect that enables global cellular connectivity to Solinst’s Model 9500 4G LevelSender 5 Telemetry Systems. The LevelSender 5 offers a simple and inexpensive means to collect water level data from remote Solinst dataloggers.

Solinst now offers the option of a CityKinect SIM card that is activated and pre-installed before shipping. This allows a low-cost, competitive data-only plan, managed and billed directly through Solinst. The LevelSender 5 is set up in advance, simplifying the programming and installation process, providing a plug and play solution for remote water level monitoring.

The SIM Card gives access to wider network coverage, as it scans multiple service providers automatically, selecting the strongest signal for one’s location. This helps to avoid costs and frustrations with traditional single carrier providers, and not worry which network has better coverage where the LevelSender 5 is deployed.


“Reducing the challenges of getting good sensor data has always been a priority at Solinst,” Jim Pianosi, president of Solinst, said. “Now with an integrated offering including global cellular connectivity, it’s easier than ever before for customers to deploy and not worry about coverage at site. It just works.”

The collaboration brings together high quality water level dataloggers with reliable and secure cellular technology to ensure customers have a world-class telemetry solution. Solinst is a groundwater and surface water monitoring instrumentation manufacturer and CityKinect is a cellular connectivity provider focused on helping manufacturers integrate cellular into their offerings.

Shaun Connor, CEO of CityKinect, said, “Solinst has been fantastic to work with, and really understands their customers’ needs. By taking this step together we are enthusiastic about growing both companies in the environmental monitoring space”.
