ORBCOMM has simplified the hardware decision-making process for OEMs with the release of its interchangeable OG2 and OGi satellite modems. The versatile M2M modems feature an identical footprint, connectors, power input, programming environment, communication interface and protocols.
Simply drop in the appropriate satellite modem based on your geography, message size, delivery speed and regulatory environment for unrivaled ease of use and flexibility.
Our suite of satellite modems includes the OG2-M and OG2-GPS modems, which deliver connectivity over the ORBCOMM VHF network, as well as the OGi modem, which enables communications over the Inmarsat L-band network. ORBCOMM’s satellite modems are designed for easy integration into hardware solutions that enable asset tracking and monitoring applications within the marine, heavy equipment, transportation markets and more.
ORBCOMM’s OG2 and OGi satellite modems share the same electrical and application interfaces. This allows for seamless plug-and-play satellite connectivity over either network with no additional time or resources spent on development and integration.
Plus, reduce service delivery and backend development complexity with the ORBCOMMconnect multi-mode and multi-network platform.
