Rochelle Park, NJ, June 4, 2015 –ORBCOMM Inc.

The TMC award honors the best systems and solutions in IoT technology that are delivering on the promise of gathering information regardless of proximity.
ORBCOMM’s GT 1000 is a high-performance electronic bolt seal targeted for theft prevention and recovery as well as virtual warehouse and in-transit visibility applications for intermodal containers. Co-developed with the world’s largest seal company, Tyden Brooks, the GT 1000 is a cost-effective cargo tracking, security and condition monitoring device that enables asset positioning through GSM cellular communications, ZigBee and assisted GPS technologies. The bolt and locking cap provide a secure container lock and reliably detect cut or removal in real-time for maximum security. By utilizing a security padlock in lieu of a locking cap, the GT 1000’s bolt can be used repeatedly. The GT 1000 communicates with a robust web application that features security, supply chain automation, management overview via dashboards, precise measurement against performance metrics, and the ability to detect and correct supply chain anomalies in real time, significantly improving asset visibility, theft prevention and operational efficiency.
The SkyWave IDP-782 provides fleet managers with a single, cost-effective device for both cellular and satellite network coverage so they can stay connected to assets, sensors and people. The dual-mode IDP-782 provides both configurable out-of-the-box software for quick deployments and flexible architecture that supports the development of custom applications for more complex solutions. In addition, the SkyWave IDP-782 features an optional 2.5 hour backup battery option to send GPS and other information when no vehicle power is available.
“We are honored to receive two Product of the Year Awards from TMC for the ORBCOMM GT 1000 and the SkyWave IDP-782, which set the standard for asset tracking, monitoring and security solutions across a diversity of markets,” said Christian Allred, ORBCOMM’s Senior Vice President and General Manager of Enterprise Solutions. “ORBCOMM will continue to drive innovation and excellence in M2M and IoT technology by developing new products and services that allow our customers to have complete command and control of their assets and processes anywhere in the world.”
