GPS-enabled satellite trackers
M2M Connectivity has a wide range of satellite trackers available with a high-performance battery life, which maintains update frequency and accuracy performance of the global positioning system (GPS) devices.
The company’s tracking solutions include SmartOne LP and Smartone C, AssetLink, the Remora from Digital Matter, and the Oyster.
Also available in a Sigfox version, the Oyster can be mounted on assets that are exposed to rain, dust and marine conditions due to its UV stable IP-67 rated housing. The device features built-in antennas for GPS reception, a 3D accelerometer, a high-performance GPS and flash memory for storing information.
AssetLink’s AssetPack-3™ (AP3™) global satellite tracker is a completely enclosed, self-contained, waterproof, dustproof and ruggedised solution that pinpoint monitors any fixed or mobile asset in the world.
Available in solar / hard-line or hard-line only options, the battery is designed to survive long periods in low-sun conditions. For applications beyond GPS, it can be configured to monitor a wide range of analogue and digital sensors, as well as data inputs.
Dual-mode satellite and cellular solutions
M2M Connectivity offers the Cradlepoint COR IBR900, Sierra Wireless MP70 with IDP280, or Iridium Edge™ (ITAS) to enable mobile workforces continue satellite-enabled communications with no downtime.
Clients can leverage existing terrestrial-based solutions for fleet management, telematics, safety and other remote monitoring applications through ITAS, an off-the-shelf (OTS) device that complements current cellular solutions to create dual-mode connectivity.
SkyWave’s packaged modems enable reliable satellite connectivity over Inmarsat’s IsatData Pro network to industrial assets in remote locations such as vehicles, heavy equipment and fixed assets in oil and gas applications.
