Codan Radio Communications is pleased to announce its collaboration with ORBCOMM (Nasdaq: ORBC), to launch Codan’s ConvoyTM multi-mode telematics platform for global asset management. ORBCOMM is providing ruggedized, dual-mode hardware, satellite and cellular connectivity as well as robust device management in conjunction with Codan’s High Frequency (HF) radio technology to support the Convoy system.
The integrated Convoy platform provides customers with location tracking and remote management of deployed radio assets, including visibility and control for security-based applications. By utilizing the Convoy platform, customers gain reliable communications in remote regions around the world, better network availability and redundancy, increased situational awareness, and lower network operating costs. Convoy also features an intuitive web portal, which can be used to manage remote radio assets and perform health checks, decommissions and key software, firmware and security updates.
“Convoy is the latest example of how Codan continues to focus on developing innovative communication solutions to support the safety and security of our customers. Integrating our world-leading HF technology with ORBCOMM’s advanced IoT technology will provide our customers enhanced reliability and connectivity in the harshest environments and remote areas,” said Paul Sangster, VP and GM, Radio Communications Australia.
“ORBCOMM is pleased to partner with Codan, a leader and innovator in High Frequency radio communications, to enable their new Convoy telematics platform with our ubiquitous wireless connectivity and advanced IoT technology,” said Marc Eisenberg, ORBCOMM’s Chief Executive Officer. “We look forward to further expanding our IoT solutions into the government and military markets and providing Codan’s customers with asset visibility and control to support their mission-critical applications.”
Codan’s Convoy works in conjunction with Codan’s Envoy software-defined smart radio, which has recently been upgraded to include enhanced features, such as full support for 3G ALE (STANAG 4538) waveforms and a secure interoperability function. Codan’s Envoy has been widely deployed worldwide in a number of applications spanning the humanitarian, disaster relief, public safety and security sectors.
