Quake Global Announces Next Generation M2M Modems for the ORBCOMM Satellite Network

SAN DIEGO --(Business Wire)-- ORBCOMM, Inc., a global satellite data communications company focused on two-way Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications and Quake Global, Inc. the leading manufacturer of ORBCOMM M2M modems, today announced the next generation of modems for the ORBCOMM® satellite network with the Q4000 and Q-Pro series of QUAKE™ products. These robust, reliable and highly configurable devices have received ORBCOMM Type Acceptance Testing (TAT) approval and units are immediately available.

“ORBCOMM and Quake have over a decade-long partnership,” said Marc Eisenberg, ORBCOMM CEO. “These new devices reflect our shared vision to expand our leadership position to new M2M markets such as security, marine, transportation and others that have been previously underserved in data acquisition. When configured as dual-mode, the Q4000/Q-Pro provides satellite coverage and cellular bandwidth at prices below other satellite-only services with similar capabilities.”

Though small enough to fit in your hand, the Q4000 is a rugged industrial grade modem with dual-mode operation over the ORBCOMM satellite network and GSM terrestrial networks. With embedded GPS, the highly customizable Q4000/Q-Pro are versatile, all-in-one remote asset tracking solutions. They are designed to meet stringent automotive power conditioning requirements and have extremely low power consumption for extended battery operation. The Q4000/Q-Pro also incorporate an application programming interface (API) for developers to utilize their functions to create customized onboard applications. Utilizing QUAKE’s patented technology and unified communications protocol, system integrators need only develop a single protocol to communicate across ORBCOMM satellite and terrestrial networks, significantly reducing development time and costs.
