ORBCOMM Announces International Expansion with New Regulatory Authorization in Ecuador


ORBCOMM, a satellite data communications company focused on two-way Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications, announced that its two-way satellite data communications services are authorized in Ecuador.



The addition of Ecuador to the growing list of countries where ORBCOMM services are authorized is yet another confirmation of our commitment to international growth,” said Marc Eisenberg, ORBCOMM’s Chief Executive Officer. This new market will allow ORBCOMM to expand our business in several targeted industries such as heavy equipment, transportation, mining and industrial fixed assets, which will significantly benefit from ruggedized telematics solutions enabled by ORBCOMM’s global network.”



This important authorization in Ecuador now completes our regulatory approvals throughout the chain of Andean-based countries in South America, paving the way for our Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to begin using ORBCOMM’s satellite service to track and monitor valuable assets deployed in Ecuador.


The company is also looking forward to expanding its Latin American business with the addition of new local M2M solution providers and integrators.


International expansion is a key component to future growth at ORBCOMM as it provides its customers, many of which already have distribution in these countries, a new outlet to provide ORBCOMM-enabled services. It also creates an opportunity for new sales channels with local providers.


ORBCOMM continues to expand its global authorizations, which now total over 100 countries and territories.


ORBCOMM’s customers include Caterpillar Inc., Doosan Infracore America, Hitachi Construction Machinery, Hyundai Heavy Industries, Asset Intelligence a division of I.D. Systems, Inc., Komatsu Ltd., Manitowoc Crane Companies, Inc., and Volvo Construction Equipment among other industry leaders.
