ORBCOMM IoT Toolkit Powers Enterprise Solutions from End-to-End

Complete IoT stack simplifies the entire process for enabling and deploying M2M and IoT solutions across a wide range of vertical markets

Rochelle Park, NJ, September 7, 2016 - ORBCOMM Inc. (Nasdaq: ORBC), a global provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, today introduced its Enterprise IoT Toolkit, which provides every layer of the IoT stack required to develop market-specific solutions that improve asset utilization, reduce operational costs and provide long-term return on investment (ROI). ORBCOMM’s IoT Toolkit components are available together or separately to enterprises, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), solution providers and Value Added Resellers (VARs) to create M2M and IoT solutions with the assurance that all of the building blocks are interoperable and come with a single point of contact for support.

As a global leader with the broadest set of enterprise IoT capabilities in the market today, ORBCOMM is uniquely positioned to provide all of the following tools for quickly developing flexible, scalable IoT solutions.  

  • Devices
    ORBCOMM offers a full suite of tracking, monitoring and controlling devices, ranging from individual components such as interchangeable satellite modems, sensors and smart terminals to turn-key, application-specific telematics solutions operating on multiple networks.

  • Networks
    ORBCOMM’s uniquely broad mix of connectivity options ensures customers are reliably in touch with their assets as cost-effectively as possible, even in some of the most remote places in the world. With services available in over 190 countries and territories, ORBCOMM’s network connectivity portfolio includes services from seven Tier One cellular providers and three global satellite networks, including ORBCOMM’s own low-Earth orbit (LEO) constellation.

  • Subscriber Management
    ORBCOMMconnect is a powerful subscriber management platform that integrates multiple connectivity providers and reduces the complexity of managing M2M assets and IoT devices across these networks. The platform simplifies provisioning, connectivity, setting thresholds and alerts, and more through either a web-based interface or an API.

  • Device Management
    ORBCOMM’s DeviceCloud enables customers to speak one language to all of their connected devices. DeviceCloud provides device configuration and provisioning, firmware upgrades and key data functionality such as transforming raw data into actionable information and generating alerts. It provides applications access to multiple networks and devices in a single device-agnostic API, allowing a replacement, upgrade or addition of devices, whether ORBCOMM or third-party, without updating the application.

  • Application Enablement Platform
    ORBCOMM’s iApp reduces the time, cost and complexity of deploying high-performance RFID and sensor-based M2M and IoT applications and solutions for the connected world. With application templates and enterprise plug-ins for a number of different industries, iApp can both jumpstart your IoT solution development and provide ongoing, evolutionary application development.  

  • Applications
    For customers looking for complete end-to-end M2M and IoT deployments, ORBCOMM offers a comprehensive suite of cloud-based SaaS reporting applications for tracking and managing assets across a wide array of industries.

“There is a lot of hype surrounding IoT, with many companies trying to differentiate themselves in what is becoming a complex and crowded space,” said Marc Eisenberg, ORBCOMM’s Chief Executive Officer. “ORBCOMM stands far in front of the pack because we’ve been doing IoT long before it was a buzzword. We believe our IoT Toolkit is the best and most complete offering available in the market today because we’ve been using these award-winning products and services for years to build ROI-driven M2M and IoT solutions for our customers with great success.”

ORBCOMM’s IoT Toolkit is a finalist in the CTIA Super Mobility 2016 E-Tech Awards in both the Industrial IoT (IIoT, M2M, Sensors, RFID, NFC etc.) and Mobile Cloud categories.
