Internet of Things solutions provider Orbcomm recently introduced its next generation of analytics and reporting platform, featuring advanced data insights and a new user interface. The new platform will provide customers with a single view of all transportation assets.

The cloud-based Orbcomm Platform, which was built with the eventual transition to 5G in mind, allows customers to track, monitor and control all of their assets. The platform also includes a driver management component to enable workflow management, performance, communications, and safety compliance with the ELD mandate, U.S. FMCSA Hours of Service, and Canadian working hours rules. The platform can accommodate any size fleet and integrates with sensors for fuel, doors, cargo, temperature and more.

Fleets can also provide customers with data to their existing third-party or proprietary enterprise systems to improve 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.

The platform supports multiple modes of communication, and its capacity has been expanded to process more than 100,000 messages per second, which is an increase of over 1,000 times in message throughput over legacy systems.

“The Orbcomm Platform provides fleet customers with a complete view across all their assets, deep data insights, faster response time, greater capacity, as well as more real-time visibility – all in one place, from one provider, with one sign-on,” said Marc Eisenberg, Orbcomm’s CEO.
