OG2, ORBCOMM’s Next Generation of Satellites
ORBCOMM is the world’s first and only commercial satellite network 100% dedicated to M2M. ORBCOMM is taking their network to an even higher level of functionality, performance and service with OG2, their next generation of satellites. As part of its $230 million satellite network expansion program, ORBCOMM launched its first six next generation OG2 satellites on 14 July 2014. ORBCOMM anticipates launching the remaining 11 OG2 satellites in the Q1 or Q2 timeframe of 2015 to complete their next generation constellation.
OG2 will have a direct and immediate impact on enhancing their network’s performance and service for customers across a wide range of industries and assets, which translates to:
- Faster message delivery
- Increased data rates
- Larger message capacity
- Broader global coverage
- Smaller antennas
- Lower power consumption
OG2 offers increased throughput, faster data transmission speed and advanced technology, ensuring our customers’ mission-critical communications are more efficient, reliable and globally available than ever before.
Satellite Modems Tailored for OEM Solutions
ORBCOMM has released a comprehensive suite of world-class OEM satellite modem solutions. This suite of satellite modems, available from M2Mzone, includes the OG2 modems (OG2-M and OG2-GPS) and an Isat Data Pro (IDP) L-Band modem (OG-ISAT), which provides global coverage over Inmarsat’s satellite constellation. ORBCOMM’s turn-key OEM solutions are intended for early integration into M2M applications targeted for the transportation & distribution, heavy equipment, oil & gas, maritime and government markets. Combined with ORBCOMM’s Multi-Access Point PlatformTM (MAPPTM), satellite and cellular services and robust web applications,OEM can utilize ORBCOMM’s components to create complete M2M solutions operating on a truly global platform. In addition, ORBCOMM’s comprehensive service offering translates into cost savings in development time, decreased risk and faster time to market for our OEM customers deploying solutions in the field.
Powerful Suite of Satellite Modems
ORBCOMM’s robust, cost-effective OG2 and ISAT modems can be easily integrated into a wide variety of wireless M2M applications. The OG2-GPS modem features an on-board three-axis accelerometer and built-in GPS. The OG-ISAT modem contains built-in GPS. With a footprint smaller than a credit card, ORBCOMM’s entire suite of modems is interchangeable, offering OEM’s a M2M solution compatible with ORBCOMM’s current OG1 satellite network and future OG2 services as well as with Inmarsat’s L-Band IDP network. The modems’ superior design offers our customers immediate improvements in latency, message size, performance and regulatory coverage.
The modems feature a single, wide-range power supply input, which provides flexibility for product designers. The modems’ low power consumption improves longevity in battery-powered applications. The modems also utilize an industry-standard PCI Express physical interface for seamless integration. In addition, integrators can purchase the ORBCOMM Developer’s Kit, which includes the OG2 or ISAT satellite modem, modem evaluation board, universal power supply, antennas, USB to serial adapter, Quick Start Guide CD with documentation, and PC interface software.
