Nupoint Systems Expands M2M Data Communication with Globalstar Deal

By Kasey Schefflin-Emrich March 18, 2013

Nupoint Systems has signed a deal with mobile satellite voice and data services provider, Globalstar Canada Satellite, to expand its M2M data communication services beyond the capabilities of a cellular platform.

The three-year agreement will allow Nupoint to integrate its products and services with Globalstar's satellite data services in order to enable two-way communications for the purposes of M2M data collection, as well as the monitoring of customer assets such as oil and gas wells, mining sites, water management systems, pollution detection systems and remote security.

"The capability to acquire M2M data from remotely located assets and transmit that information through the Globalstar satellite network, gives customers of Nupoint Systems the ability to make decisions based upon real-time actionable information," Jim Mandala, vice president and general manager of Globalstar Canada, explained in a statement.

"Being chosen by a group of experienced Satellite device manufacturers such as Nupoint, further solidifies the industry's confidence of our return as the world's leader in MSS voice and data services. As the first Mobile Satellite Services company to complete the launch of our new constellation, our customers can enjoy the reliability and the continuation of affordably priced satellite services to meet their evolving data communication needs."

In other related news, Globalstar recently launched six new second-generation satellites, positioning the company as the first mobile satellite services provider to succeed in the deployment of such satellites.

"Companies can't always choose the location of their assets, but they can choose a reliable and cost effective satellite communications solution to connect to those assets," Wayne Carlson, president and CEO of Nupoint Systems, said in a statement. "With Globalstar's recently launched satellites having a design life of 15 years, Nupoint is able to provide reliable two-way connectivity with our customer's data equipment, even in the most remote locations for years to come."
