San Diego, United States:
Global, Inc., a global provider of leading-edge remote
asset tracking technology, has announced that the QUAKE™
Q4000, a dual mode satellite/cellular data modem, will offer seamless
integration with ORBCOMM’s new OG2/OG1 satellite network.
The OG2 generation of ORBCOMM satellites will offer many
additional powerful features to its users. By completing this
integration, QUAKE has confirmed that its Q4000
has the ability to switch operations seamlessly between the three modes
of ORBCOMM’s first and second generation satellites and terrestrial
networks. This combination will enable customers to select the best
communications path based on price, geography or coverage. Clients are
now empowered to easily maximize the flexibility of the Q4000 software
defined radio modem when it is strongly complemented by the elasticity
of OG1/OG2 ORBCOMM network capabilities.
OG2 constellation will enable faster communications speeds, improved
coverage, increased message sizes, better power management, and other
valuable features while continuing to support the efficient, reliable
mission-critical communications available from the current
constellation. ORBCOMM and QUAKE are working together to develop an M2M
device that will take full advantage of these capabilities,” stated
Polina Braunstein, QUAKE’s President and CEO. “This cost effective M2M
telecommunications solution will greatly reduce the cost of data
collection as well as improve enterprise ROI. With rising demand in the
M2M industry, we have positioned QUAKE ahead of the game by insuring
that the Q4000 production schedule is in lock-step with the much
anticipated launch of ORBCOMM’s OG2 network.”
