Globalstar Introduces The STX3: The World’s Lowest Power-Consuming Satellite Network Chipset for Global M2M Solutions

Today, Globalstar have launched the STX3 simplex satellite global transmitter. The STX3 is a low-cost device designed to deliver reliable one-way digital data communications for remote sensing, tracking and monitoring applications.STX3

The STX3 is a fantastic solution for anybody whose tracking devices are dispersed in remote locations as they are the lowest power-consuming modem of its type in the world and can operate for many months or years without requiring human intervention.

It is three times smaller than the previous Globalstar modem (the STX2) and at just £75, the STX3 provides a cost-effective option, designed to be easily integrated into a huge range of M2M devices and applications to enable the tracking of everything from sheep to ships!

The STX3 is also ideal for hybrid GPRS/GSM-based M2M tracking in areas with limited or no mobile network coverage. "We see a huge opportunity for VARs and OEMs to incorporate the STX3 chipset into compact and efficient communications devices targeted at a wide and fast-growing range of vertical markets," said Jay Monroe, Chairman and CEO of Globalstar. "With its unrivalled low power consumption and small size, this chipset has the potential to accelerate the adoption of satellite-based M2M – both satellite-only solutions and hybrid cellular/satellite offerings."

Ovinto, an M2M telematics specialist based in Belgium, is one VAR who has been testing the STX3 chipset. "We have been using the STX2 for many years as it meets our stringent requirements for reliability in even the harshest of environments including contact with explosive materials," said Frederick Ronse, Founder and CEO of Ovinto. "We have been testing the STX3 and see great potential in using this new technology, particularly its very long battery life. Our customers want to use Ovinto Sat with the reassurance that they can go years without having to replace device batteries in wagons and containers across Europe."

The Globalstar STX3 is available for purchase from our website.
