Turn-key business continuity solution providing reliable connectivity using 4G LTE networks from Top Tier carriers to deliver wireless failover and out-of-band management services
ROCHELLE PARK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ORBCOMM Inc. (Nasdaq:ORBC), a global provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, today announced the launch of ORBCOMM Enterprise Connect , a new solution focused on wireless devices and applications that require uninterrupted, high-bandwidth connectivity. ORBCOMM Enterprise Connect leverages 4G LTE to provide reliable wireless WAN connectivity that can be used as a back-up to existing broadband connections for distributed enterprise, financial, hospitality and retail locations.
ORBCOMM Enterprise Connect provides both large and small enterprises with an affordable turn-key solution that combines world-class connectivity, hardware, management capabilities along with network and deployment support. ORBCOMM's wireless failover service is a strong complement to enterprises that rely on wired technologies, such as T1, T3 MPLS networks and cable modems. Utilizing integrated routers from industry-leading hardware manufacturers, customers can instantly switch to a 4G xLTE connection on a Tier One cellular network in the event of a primary network communications failure, including hardware failure, construction-related cable cuts and extreme weather situations such as hurricanes and earthquakes.
In addition, ORBCOMM Enterprise Connect provides Out-of-Band Management (OOBM) capabilities that allow IT personnel to remotely troubleshoot and resolve issues with networking equipment using cellular connectivity when primary networks fail. Remote troubleshooting capabilities enable early identification of the cause of the outage and accelerate repair and/or replacement of the equipment, minimizing the costs associated with downtime and dispatching a technician on-site.
ORBCOMM Enterprise Connect customers will also be able to leverage the ORBCOMMconnect subscriber management portal for remote device management and monitoring. The ORBCOMMconnect portal features interactive and customizable dashboards to manage device provisioning, usage and price plans as well as to create valuable reports.
"As part of our expanded M2M and IoT portfolio, we can now address a host of new markets with a wireless service that will help protect businesses from unexpected network outages and ensure they have fast, reliable connectivity to conduct business efficiently," said Marc Eisenberg, ORBCOMM's Chief Executive Officer. "With a small investment in ORBCOMM Enterprise Connect, our customers will gain significant bottom-line benefits by reducing risks of downtime, lost productivity and customer experience issues."
ORBCOMM will showcase its new Enterprise Connect solution in Booth 4843 at CTIA Super Mobility 2015 from September 9-11, 2015 in Las Vegas, NV.
