Having GlobalWave's product and services as part of the AutoVision family is a natural extension of our core business. Now we can go beyond CDMA and GSM networks to meet the needs of our mobile customer base
OTTAWA (PRWEB) March 3, 2008
TransCore's GlobalWave system is a two-way satellite data communication system for the transportation industry that provides remote monitoring and tracking via the Internet. Assets are monitored 24 hours per day using existing geostationary satellites to relay two-way, low-speed data bursts between a communications terminal connected to the assets and computers hosted in a central Network Operations Center (NOC).
The system allows for various types of reports such as: polls for real time GPS location, pre-scheduled configurable over the air reports, and temperature and battery parameter based reports.
By adding the GlobalWave product and services to its current offering, AutoVision Wireless Inc. can address connectivity requirements that go beyond the coverage areas of traditional cellular networks.
