Globalstar launches platform for satellite asset tracking

The platform is designed to provide a lower barrier of entry for partners to develop custom applications and solutions.

Globalstar, mobile satellite services and connectivity provider, has introduced Realm Enablement Suite, a portfolio of satellite asset tracking hardware and software solutions featuring an application enablement platform for processing smart data at the edge.

With Realm, partners can accelerate new solutions to market with AI-enabled applications that generate an advanced level of telematics data. By defining smart data at the edge, users send only the data they need over the highly reliable Globalstar LEO satellite network to the customer endpoint – significantly reducing transmission costs.

Realm Enablement Suite introduces Integrity 150, the first solar-powered, deployment-ready satellite asset tracking device with an application enablement platform; ST150M satellite modem module that drastically simplifies product development; and Realm application enablement platform, offering tools and an extensive library for quickly accessing and developing AI-enabled applications at the edge for vertical-specific solutions.

Speaking about the Realm Enablement Suite, Dave Kagan, CEO of Globalstar, said: “This newest innovation from Globalstar represents a continued commitment to IoT as a core business pillar. With Realm Enablement Suite, customers have the flexibility and agility they need to optimize data from their tracking devices and edge sensors. Generating smart data at the edge for delivery to the customer endpoint makes all the difference in transmission efficiency and operational performance.”

David Haight, VP of IoT, added: “The end-to-end design of the new Globalstar Realm Enablement Suite ecosystem removes the technology barriers to profitable innovation in the tracking and industrial IoT space. Realm delivers greater speed and lower cost in both development and deployment by providing the flexibility to innovate with the power to host applications and process data on edge devices for faster action and enhanced performance. The Realm Enablement Suite is what our partners around the world have asked us for.”
