Orbcomm, a global provider of Internet of Things (IoT) 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 single, unified view of all their transportation asset types using a single sign-on. The new, cloud-based Orbcomm Platform, which has the unrivaled capacity to support millions of subscribers, was built for the future 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 (ELD) Mandate, U.S. FMCSA Hours of Service (HOS), and Canadian working hours rules.

The scalable platform can accommodate any size of operation whether the customer has one or 100,000-plus assets. The Orbcomm Platform also integrates with sensors for fuel, doors, cargo, temperature, and more for unparalleled visibility. 

Using Orbcomm's flexible APIs and extensive integrations, the open platform can deliver rich asset data to customers’ existing third-party or proprietary enterprise systems to facilitate optimal fleet management. In addition, customers can access increased data and utilize the platform’s advanced analytics to gain valuable insights about their assets’ performance, including benchmarks, historic trends and comparisons among asset types, enabling faster, more informed business decisions.

The Orbcomm Platform supports multiple modes of communication. The new platform’s capacity has been expanded exponentially to process more than 100,000 messages per second, which is an increase of over 1,000 times in message throughput over legacy systems. With the Orbcomm Platform’s increased processing capability, customers can continue to expand their deployments, access a higher level of visibility, and enable more sophisticated solutions in a 5G, sensor-enabled IoT ecosystem, according to the company.
