Hyundai Heavy selects Quake and Korea Orbcomm to supply satellite communicators

How will satellite communicators help in heavy equipment tracking and monitoring?

By CBR Staff Writer

Hyundai Heavy Industries has selected Quake Global, a manufacturer of satellite modems, and Korea Orbcomm to supply satellite communicators and airtime for its new Hi-Mate global communications system for heavy equipment tracking and monitoring.

According to Quake Global, Hi-Mate is an onboard vehicle monitoring and communications system that will allow owners and operators of high-value equipment to monitor key productivity, usage, location, and performance information. As an integral module in the Hi-Mate device, Quake Global’s modems is expected to enable Hi-Mate to communicate through the Orbcomm machine-to-machine (m2m) network around the world.

Gene Song, CEO of Korea Orbcomm, said: Hyundai has agreed to purchase modems and airtime from Orbcomm’s country representative, Korea Orbcomm. A long series of field tests has proven that a Quake Global modem communicating with the Orbcomm m2m network is a very reliable and highly competitive combination in this industry. Hyundai plans to expand its telematics system to many series of its heavy equipment and to the after-market as well.

Polina Braunstein, president and CEO of Quake Global, said: We are delighted that Hyundai has chosen to integrate Quake’s satellite modems into its ‘Hi-Mate’ communications system. Hyundai is widely known for its insistence on maintaining the highest standards of quality and demanding that its suppliers do the same.
