Melbourne, Australia: October 27, 2010 – M2M Connectivity announces the availability of the Q4000 Orbcomm dual-mode modem from Quake Global,a leading manufacturer of machine-to-machine (M2M) communicators for remote asset tracking, monitoring and control over multiple satellite and terrestrial networks. The Q4000 Orbcomm + Cellular + GPS modem is a small, low profile, flexible and user friendly Orbcomm satellite modem integrated with a 50-channel GPS receiver and on-board microprocessor and memory. Other features include CAN bus, memory, antenna detection, multiple analog and digital inputs/outputs and relays.
The Q4000 Orbcomm dual-mode modem operates seamlessly over cellular and Orbcomm satellite. Designed for fixed and mobile applications, the Q4000 is a flexible solution that provides cost-effective global M2M communications with land, marine or aviation based assets and equipment such as heavy machinery, trucks, ships and containers. The Q4000 is also ideally suited for predictive maintenance, hours of service and DOT compliance. Isolated power substations and remote metering facilities can also be more effectively monitored and managed.
The Q4000 turn-key application allows customer with simple tracking or monitoring requirements to build a dual-mode application. There is also a Application Programming Interface (API) which supports QUAKE Messaging Manager™ (QMM™). QMM is a programming interface that enables programmers to develop their custom applications only once. Those applications in turn function seamlessly regardless of the desired network or protocol, without the need for additional programming. Network selection is dynamic and user defined. From the customer’s viewpoint, the footprint, processing and interconnections remain constant, while the network is selected based on user-defined circumstances such as signal strength, cost, latency, geo-location, etc.
“Our customers have asked for a single modem that can utilize the most economically appropriate communication signal to meet the needs of their customer’s varied usage patterns,” said Sergio Ramos, QUAKE CTO. “The Q4000 provides that. It performs reliably in remote and severe environments, is user programmable, allowing a custom application reflecting each customer’s needs, can switch between cell and satellite for the most cost-effective airtime usage and is the most economical multi-satellite solution on the market, bar none.”
