M2M Connectivity has launched a special developer kit for M2M developers wanting to quickly build applications to work on the Orbcomm 2-way satellite data network. The kit comprises both hardware and airtime to allow developers to quickly get applications working over satellite.

The core of the Developer Kit is the DS300 Quick Start Kit from Stellar Satellite Communications. This kit includes the DS300 modem, a programmable ORBCOMM subscriber satellite modem, designed as a fully integrated solution that combines a very robust enclosure, power management and power conditioning capabilities, GPS receiver, and a dedicated on-board programmable CPU for running third party and custom. In addition the QuickStart Kit includes ½ wave antenna, all power and data cables and batteries.

M2M Connectivity is offering the Developer Kit comprising the Stellar DS300 Quick Start Developer Kit, Orbcomm connection, two months developer usage, and freight for A$700 ex tax.

The Stellar Satellite Communications DS300 satellite data modem works on the ORBCOMM satellite network, providing two-way messaging for tracking and monitoring applications. Manufactured by Delphi Electronics and Safety to exacting OEM telematics standards, Stellar products are designed and field-proven to withstand harsh environments common to many industrial applications.

“The Developer Kit has been put together to help local developers get into remote M2M market more quickly and hopefully also uncover new opportunities around the world. The Developer Kit makes it easy for developers to get started and with the support from M2M Connectivity it is possible to get applications to market in a very short time”, said Darren Moroney, General Manager at M2M Connectivity.
