ORBCOMM Announces International Expansion with New Regulatory Authorization in Ecuador

26 April 20111


ORBCOMM Inc. announced that its two-way satellite data communications services are now authorized in Ecuador.


“The addition of Ecuador to the growing list of countries where ORBCOMM services are authorized is yet another confirmation of our commitment to international growth,” said Marc Eisenberg, ORBCOMM’s Chief Executive Officer. “This new market will allow ORBCOMM to expand our business in several targeted industries such as heavy equipment, transportation, mining and industrial fixed assets, which will significantly benefit from ruggedized telematics solutions enabled by ORBCOMM’s global network.”


“This important authorization in Ecuador now completes our regulatory approvals throughout the chain of Andean-based countries in South America, paving the way for our Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to begin using ORBCOMM’s satellite service to track and monitor valuable assets deployed in Ecuador,” explained Christian Allred, Senior Vice President of International at ORBCOMM. “We also look forward to expanding our Latin American business with the addition of new local M2M solution providers and integrators.”


International expansion is a key component to future growth at ORBCOMM as it provides our customers, many of which already have distribution in these countries, a new outlet to provide ORBCOMM-enabled services. It also creates an opportunity for new sales channels with local providers.


ORBCOMM continues to expand its global authorizations, which now total over 100 countries and territories.
