ORBCOMM Inc., a global provider of Internet of Things solutions, announced the introduction of its next generation analytics and reporting platform, which offers advanced data insights and a dynamic user interface, to provide customers with a unified view of all their transportation asset types using a single sign-on. The new, cloud-based ORBCOMM Platform, which supports millions of subscribers, was built to address the industry’s evolving requirements for greater processing power, data bandwidth and scalability in a 5G IoT ecosystem.
The ORBCOMM Platform offers the ability for customers to track, monitor and control all of their transportation assets in one place, from reefers, dry trailers and trucks to chassis and dry and refrigerated shipping containers on the road, rail and at sea. The platform also includes a driver management component to enable workflow management, performance, communications and safety compliance with the Electronic Logging Device Mandate, U.S. FMCSA Hours of Service and Canadian working hours rules. The scalable platform can accommodate any size of operation. The ORBCOMM Platform also integrates with sensors for fuel, doors, cargo, temperature and more.
Using ORBCOMM’s flexible APIs and extensive integrations, the open platform can deliver asset data to customers’ existing third-party or proprietary enterprise systems to facilitate fleet management. In addition, customers can access increased data and utilize the platform’s analytics to gain insight about their assets’ performance, including benchmarks, historic trends and comparisons among asset types.
“ORBCOMM has been a long-time technology leader and innovator in the industrial IoT market, and the ORBCOMM Platform encapsulates our ability to understand and execute on the advanced features and functionality our customers need to be successful, competitive and prepared for a 5G, sensor-enabled IoT ecosystem,” said Marc Eisenberg, ORBCOMM’s Chief Executive Officer. “The ORBCOMM Platform provides fleet customers with a complete view across all their assets, deep data insights, faster response time, greater capacity, as well as more real-time visibility – all in one place, from one provider, with one sign-on. It doesn’t get easier or more efficient than that."
