ISAT M2M End of Life: Yet to replace your hardware?

The IsatM2M satellite service will be withdrawn on 31 December 2021; order your new hardware now to ensure business continuity, avoid long delivery times, and beat the competition.

Inmarsat, with Orbcomm (previously Skywave), will be withdrawing the IsatM2M satellite service as of 31 December 2021.

To ensure service continuity, all tracking and telemetry services including Ship Security Alert Systems using associated DMR-800 transceiver hardware must be replaced and upgraded to operate over the latest and higher-performance IsatData Pro satellite service before this date.

IsatData Pro is the fastest low-data rate satellite communications service specifically designed to connect people with equipment and enterprise applications—anytime, in the world’s most remote locations. IsatData Pro offers enhanced reliability and the ability to deliver more data then other satellite M2M services in the market. 

To aid your migration path, the table below will help guide your upgrade options. Please select the relevant hardware replacement option for more information.
