KNL Networks

Revolutionizing IoT connectivity through satellite-independent communications

KNL Networks is the leader in satellite-independent communications, trusted by the maritime industry and disaster relief organizations who need reliable worldwide communications.

The vision of KNL is to build a safer connected world, where every modern business should be connected, no matter where in the world they operate. They have poured years of research into the KNL Radio and built their own independent, global network to do what no one else has been able to do: to provide reliable worldwide communications with military-grade security.

KNL’s mission is to be the catalyst for smart IoT digitalization by building the connections between ships and shore, and between machines and databases.

The company was founded at the University of Oulu in 2011, by Toni Linden, Matti Raustia and Teemu Vanninen.
