(Nasdaq:ORBC), a global provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, today announced that it has launched ORBCOMMconnect, a multi-network subscriber management portal designed to give customers complete control over their wireless services and connected devices, while reducing the complexity of managing and integrating multiple connectivity offerings. With ORBCOMMconnect, customers will have access to three satellite and seven Tier One cellular networks in one comprehensive platform.
