Orbcomm releases new global asset management solution

Orbcomm Inc. has launched a new asset management solution enabled by its new GT 1030 global LTE telematics device targeted for tracking and monitoring all types of assets used in the transportation, container and heavy equipment markets. Orbcomm says its next-gen solution is built to support mixed equipment fleets, delivering global cellular connectivity, cost-efficient SIM management along with the latest wireless technologies to support a variety of customer use cases for managing assets anywhere in the world.

With global LTE communications and fallback to 3G/2G networks, Orbcomm says its latest asset management solution provides faster and more reliable coverage in the Americas through Europe to Australia and Japan. The solution features an embedded global SIM card that allows devices to switch networks seamlessly and affordably between geographies with the certifications and type approvals to meet the needs of international operators. It also includes integrated GPS and cellular antennas for discrete and easy installation. The solution’s higher battery capacity ensures connectivity when external power is lost for long-lasting performance in the field. With up to four digital and analog inputs, the solution offers multiple connectivity options as well as Bluetooth BLE support for wireless sensors supporting multiple industrial IoT applications. In addition, the solution integrates with all of Orbcomm’s Cloud-based platforms, enabling fleet customers to manage all of their assets in a single, unified portal and leverage deep data analytics across their business for streamlined operations, the company says.

For transportation and container customers, Orbcomm’s solution provides visibility into the location and operational status of fixed and mobile transport assets such as chassis, delivery trucks and service vehicles. The solution’s geofence capability helps fleet owners keep track of when assets enter or exit specific regions for maximum security and accurate, reliable fleet tracking. The solution also helps fleet owners optimize inventory management by assessing asset pools at different locations to properly allocate resources and reduce dwell times, the company says.

The compact, ruggedized solution is also ideal for tracking and monitoring all types of fixed, portable and mobile assets in the demanding heavy equipment and construction markets to gain additional insights into how the equipment is being used and how well it is functioning, Orbcomm says.
