The ORBCOMM Platform’s customer-focused enhancements include new, innovative feature sets supporting every commercial transportation asset class, including trucks, refrigerated trailers, dry vans, gensets and chassis, all of which can be viewed and managed through one comprehensive, integrated system. In addition to the incremental asset class features, ORBCOMM has delivered a variety of new analytics reports, third-party and customer integrations, intuitive field support tools, compliance updates supporting changes to Hours of Service regulations, advanced web services as well as expanded telematics and sensor capabilities for enabling “smart” assets. The ORBCOMM Platform’s compelling, new features empower transportation customers to achieve greater operating efficiencies, maximize fleet visibility, improve compliance and gain deeper integration with third-party partners and systems.
“We’re excited about the increasing pace of IoT innovation and technology integration we’ve been able to achieve since launching the consolidated ORBCOMM Platform just 90 days ago,” said Craig Malone, ORBCOMM’s Executive Vice President of Product Development. “Over 100 new and existing fleet customers are now utilizing the ORBCOMM Platform, which continues to grow on a weekly basis. We’re committed to continuing to expand the open platform’s functionality, performance and third-party integrations with new feature sets to deliver a top-notch, seamless customer experience with maximum ROI for transportation fleets.”
The cloud-based, scalable ORBCOMM Platform, which has the unrivaled capacity to support millions of subscribers, was built for the future to address the industry’s evolving requirements for greater processing power, data bandwidth and scalability in a sensor-enabled, 5G IoT ecosystem. The versatile platform supports multiple modes of communication, leveraging ORBCOMM’s extensive experience providing a broad portfolio of satellite, cellular and dual-mode IoT connectivity, which is a strong competitive advantage for the Company. The new platform’s capacity has been expanded exponentially to process more than 100,000 messages per second, which is an increase of over 1,000 times in message throughput over legacy systems. With the ORBCOMM Platform’s increased processing capability, open architecture and enhanced infrastructure, customers can continue to expand their deployments and enable more sophisticated edge-computing solutions.
