Orbcomm, a global data satellite communications company, and Archetype, a provider of GSM and satellite-based web-enabled GPS asset tracking and management solutions, have signed an International Value Added Reseller agreement. Archetype intends to offer Orbcomm wireless services to new and existing customers.
Archetype’s dual mode products will allow users to access both Orbcomm and terrestrial cellular networks, selecting the appropriate network depending on the user’s data messaging requirements. The first dual mode products are expected to be commercially available in early 2008.
Marc Eisenberg, COO of Orbcomm, said: With a wide range of applications that address multiple M2M markets, we expect Archetype to be a valuable addition to the Orbcomm IVAR network.
Jason Cooner, CEO of Archetype said: Orbcomm has established itself as a leader in the M2M space, and we are looking forward to a long and prosperous relationship with them. Our customers demand a complete, cost-effective solution that can be distributed globally. This partnership with Orbcomm will help us meet these demands.
