ORBCOMM OG2 is the world’s first and only commercial satellite network 100% dedicated to M2M. The ORBCOMM network uses low-Earth orbit (LEO) satellites to provide reliable and cost-effective M2M communications to and from in the most remote areas of the world.
ORBCOMM satellites are constantly in motion around the Earth, providing inherent network redundancy and minimizing line-of-sight issues for continuous global coverage. Each satellite’s VHF frequency furthers signal propagation and message delivery is unaffected by bad weather. In addition, the optimized message size is ideal for M2M applications.
Robust Ground Infrastructure
ORBCOMM’s proven ground infrastructure enables worldwide M2M satellite messaging. Our 16 Gateway Earth Stations in 13 countries track and establish two-way satellite communications, while our Gateway Control Centers process the data and provide the interconnection to terrestrial communications networks. Our Network Control Center in Sterling, VA serves as the focal point for managing our satellite constellation and ensuring reliable message delivery.
