By defining intelligent data at the edge, users send only the data they need through the highly reliable Globalstar LEO satellite network to the customer’s endpoint, dramatically reducing transmission costs.
Globalstar, Inc., a provider of mobile satellite services and connectivity, introduced Realm Enablement Suite, a portfolio of satellite-based asset tracking hardware and software solutions including a powerful application enablement platform for processing intelligent 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 intelligent data at the edge, users send only the data they need through the highly reliable Globalstar LEO satellite network to the customer’s endpoint, dramatically reducing transmission costs.
The Realm Enablement Suite includes Integrity 150, the first ready-to-deploy, solar-powered satellite asset tracker with app enablement platform; the ST150M satellite modem module which greatly simplifies product development; and the Realm Application Enablement Platform, offering tools and a comprehensive library to quickly access and develop AI-enabled applications at the edge for vertical-specific solutions.
“This latest innovation from Globalstar represents an ongoing commitment to IoT as a mainstay of core business. With Realm Enablement Suite, customers have the flexibility and agility they need to optimize data from their tracking devices and edge sensors,” said Dave Kagan, CEO of Globalstar. “Generating intelligent data at the edge to deliver it to the customer endpoint makes all the difference in transmission efficiency and operational performance.”
Realm Enablement Suite includes:
- Integrity 150 Satellite Solar Asset Tracker offers a durable, maintenance-free property for markets such as transportation, energy, construction, agriculture, forestry and government agencies. Featuring Globalstar’s low power consumption design, provides the longest battery life and battery life available. A GPS receiver, accelerometer, Arm processor on Nordic Semiconductor’s nRF5xxx SoC, standard and customizable messaging capability, sabotage detection, and Bluetooth BLE5 connectivity for a wide variety of sensors are built into the product. Its flash memory provides 8MB of storage for application data and firmware updates.
- ST150M satellite modem module helps partners create new products in a fraction of the normal development time and cost. The module includes a GPS receiver, an accelerometer, an Arm processor on Nordic’s nRF5xxx SoC, an 8MB external flash memory, an integrated voltage regulator and a BLE transceiver. Its low-power architecture allows integrators to minimize battery requirements. The ST150 Development Kit provides an ST150M module with an Arduino Uno Rev3 form factor and satellite and GPS patch antennas, the fastest way to develop and test technology designs before committing them to hardware.
- Domain Activation Application Platform is the key to unlocking the limitless capabilities of field devices, reducing hundreds of hours of development time for new products and AI-enabled applications at the edge. The low-code edge platform lowers the barrier of entry for partners developing custom applications and solutions. The modular software includes a unified API for rapid application development and easy management of all hardware, platform-specific and value-added features. This includes the Globalstar BLE library and the ela Innovation BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) sensor libraries. The platform provides an ongoing application development ecosystem as innovative solutions are added by Globalstar and shared by developers.
“The end-to-end design of the new Globalstar Realm Enablement Suite ecosystem removes technology barriers to cost-effective innovation in the tracking and industrial IoT space,” said David Haight, vice president of IoT at Globalstar. . “Realm delivers greater speed and lower cost for 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 improved performance. The Realm Enablement Suite is what our partners around the world have asked us for.
