OG2 AND OGi MODEMS 

(SATELLITE ONLY)

Satellite modems for OEM systems integrators

Our satellite modems deliver connectivity over the ORBCOMM and Inmarsat satellite networks and are designed for easy integration into M2M solutions.

 Our suite of satellite modems includes the OG2-M and OG2-GPS modems, which deliver connectivity over the ORBCOMM VHF network, as well as the OGi modem, which enables communications over the Inmarsat L-band network. ORBCOMM’s satellite modems are designed for easy integration into hardware solutions that enable asset tracking and monitoring applications within the marine, heavy equipment, transportation markets and more.

ORBCOMM’s OG2 and OGi modems share the same electrical and application interfaces. This allows for seamless plug-and-play satellite connectivity over either network with no additional time or resources spent on development and integration.

Small form factor

With a footprint smaller than a credit card, ORBCOMM’s modems can fit small, inconspicuous hardware solutions.

Feature-rich

The OG2 modem supports low power consumption for improved longetivity in battery-powered applications. The GPS version includes a built-in accelerometer and GPS. OG2 modems don’t require a fixed line of sight with the satellites and are well-suited for use in mountainous terrain and dense urban areas.

For mission-critical applications that require low latency, the OGi modem delivers real-time data transmission with a latency of 15 seconds or less. OGi modems support larger messages, faster delivery speeds and global connectivity.

Get started

The ORBCOMM Developer Kit includes either the OG2 or OGi satellite modem, a modem evaluation board, a universal power supply, antennas, a USB to serial adapter as well as a Quick Start Guide and a software interface to help you get started. Additional modems can be purchased separately.
