Stellar Satellite Communications, a leading remote asset tracking company, announced that a high-tech facility, located near the Dulles International Airport, will serve as its new world headquarters and customer base for the rail, trailer, oil and gas and container industries. Stellar Satellite designs industry’s best satellite and terrestrial modems, which are used to track and monitor assets worldwide.
In a press release, VP of Sales at Stellar, Laurie Quinn, commented, “This move couldn’t have come at a better time to give us the ability to showcase the broadest lineup of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communicators in the market. In our beautiful new building we’ll have device demonstrations, product training and API programming tutorials for our entire line of products.”
President and CEO of Quake Global, Polina Braun-Stein, added, “Adding Stellar’s catalog of ORBCOMM (News - Alert) modems to the already extensive line of QUAKE communicators will strengthen our long-standing relationship with ORBCOMM and will reinforce QUAKE’s position as the leader among satellite M2M device manufacturers. The integration of the personnel and engineering talents of these two very experienced companies that were pioneers in the manufacture of satellite sub-scriber communicators will work to develop a new generation of smart modems poised to take full advantage of the next generation of satellites that are on the near horizon.”
In the month of August 2010, ORBCOMM, the largest satellite data communications company with international presence, decided to sell all the assets of its fully-owned subsidiary, Stellar Satellite Communications, to Quake Global. Quale Global is a global manufacturer of cutting edge industrial M2M based satellite and terrestrial communicators such as modems and controllers, designed specifically for advanced data acquisition, motion control, machine, process, and regular asset monitoring via satellite, GPS, cellular and other similar emerging technologies.
Stellar Satellite Communications, now an arm of Quake Global, designs and manufactures satellite data communication products, including satellite transceivers with an on-board application processor, satellite communicators, with low-earth orbit satellite network, battery charger, telematics for wireless devices, and power conditioning circuitry which includes digital and analog IOs, RF signal detectors, along with GPS and very high frequency antennas. This technology is used excessively in two-way messaging, tracking and rigorous monitoring applications. Carolyn John is a Contributor to TMCnet. To read more of her articles, please columnist page.
