Orbcomm Releases IsatData Pro Core Modem – Satellite Today

[Via Satellite 01-27-2016] Orbcomm’s new OGi core modem is now commercially available, having demonstrated compliance with Inmarsat’s requirements for RF communication on the Inmarsat I-4 L-band satellites along with the IsatData Pro (IDP) network protocol. The modem is a software-defined radio based on Orbcomm’s satellite modem platform.

With a footprint nearly 50 percent smaller than a credit card, both Orbcomm’s OG2 and OGi modems use the same electrical and application interfaces, including the connectors, power input and programming environment. This interchangeable format enables customers to plug-n-play satellite connectivity from Orbcomm’s Very High Frequency (VHF) network and/or Inmarsat’s L-band network without the need to redesign their Machine to Machine (M2M) solutions.

Data delivery for both the Orbcomm and Inmarsat networks is transmitted through Orbcommconnect, which serves as a common interface. Orbcommconnect provides data from three satellite networks and seven terrestrial networks using a single connection.

“This exciting milestone brings Orbcomm one step closer to creating a truly standardized satellite M2M platform,” said Craig Malone, executive vice president of product development at Orbcomm.
