With compatible modem hardware – same footprint, same interface, same power – a VAR or system integrator can provide interchangeable satellite connectivity easily and at no incremental development cost on the same hardware platform, bringing product flexibility over geographies, data and service requirements. This is a design philosophy taken within ORBCOMM’s own separate hardware telematics product line.

All ORBCOMM modems have upgradeable firmware and satisfy all requirements for global M2M and IoT installations. The recently released OG2 modem was designed to deliver new data capabilities on ORBCOMM’s recently completed 2nd generation M2M- and IoT-exclusive satellite constellation. These satellite modems can also offer network redundancy in a dual-mode configuration, should anything happen to the local terrestrial cellular infrastructure due to capacity loading or environmental factors.
