Quake Global Announces the Q4000, Heralding the Next Generation of Satellite Modem Technology

Updated: January 05, 2011

SAN DIEGO --(Business Wire) -- Quake Global, Inc. ("QUAKE"), a leading manufacturer of machine-to-machine (M2M) communicators for remote asset tracking, monitoring and control over multiple satellite and terrestrial networks, has announced the immediate availability of the Q4000 data modem.

Designed for fixed and mobile applications, the Q4000 is a flexible solution that provides cost-effective global M2M communications with land, marine or aviation based assets and equipment such as heavy machinery, trucks, ships and containers. The Q4000 is also ideally suited for predictive maintenance, hours of service and DOT compliance. Isolated power substations and remote metering facilities can also be more effectively monitored and managed.

Though small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, QUAKE™ has designed a rugged, power efficient modem capable of communicating across any satellite or terrestrial network, an industryfirst. The Q4000 is also highly customizable. In addition to multiple network configurations and optional GPS to serve a variety of markets and price points, options include CAN bus, memory, antenna detection, multiple analog and digital inputs/outputs and relays.

QUAKE's patented technology establishes the Q4000 as the most connected modem of its kind and also offers OEMs and system integrators unprecedented simplicity and functionality to create customized onboard applications. The Application Programming Interface (API) supports QUAKE Messaging Manager™ (QMM™). QMM is the only programming interface that enables programmers to develop their custom applications only once. Those applications in turn function seamlessly regardless of the desired network or protocol, without the need for additional programming. Network selection is dynamic and user defined. From the customer's viewpoint, the footprint, processing and interconnections remain constant, while the network is selected based on user-defined circumstances such as signal strength, cost, latency, geo-location, etc.

"Our customers have asked for a single modem that can utilize the most economically appropriate communication signal to meet the needs of their customer's varied usage patterns," said Sergio Ramos, QUAKE CTO. "The Q4000 provides that. It performs reliably in remote and severe environments, is user programmable, allowing a custom application reflecting each customer's needs, can switch between cell and satellite for the most cost-effective airtime usage and is the most economical multi-satellite solution on the market, bar none."
