Orbcomm and Wavecom enter joint marketing agreement

Orbcomm, a global satellite data communications company, announced today that it has signed into a joint marketing agreement with Wavecom, a provider of automotive-grade wireless CPU’s. The two companies will work together to address the growing demand for devices that combine both satellite and terrestrial wireless communications.

“We are very excited that Wavecom intends to promote dual-mode services that combine Orbcomm with terrestrial wireless networks,” says Marc Eisenberg, Orbcomm Chief Operations Officer. “Wavecom’s position as a leading provider of cellular M2M technology is further validation of Orbcomm’s plans to bring dual-mode services that combine satellite and cellular to the market at prices normally associated with single-mode services.”
