Vehicle Tracking Systems LLC Strengthens Partnership with Novatel Wireless to Provide Advanced M2M Telematics Platforms for Fleet Management Applications

Novatel Wireless, Inc. (Nasdaq: NVTL), a leading provider of intelligent wireless solutions, today announced that it has been selected by Vehicle Tracking Systems (VTS), a premier fleet management systems provider, to deliver its MT 4100 and MT 3050 devices to support the VTS Silent Passenger application. The partnership will also support VTS’s migration from GPRS to CDMA technology.

KEY HIGHLIGHTS:

  • MT 4100: The MT 4100 is a flexible, full-featured M2M device for fleet management that delivers key product features that drive the most demanding fleet management applications. Once fitted into a vehicle and integrated with a fleet management application, the MT 4100 delivers on critical features to drive efficiencies and reduce operational costs. The MT 3060 provides superior GPS location performance using an on-board smart agent event engine for accelerometer based driver behavior reporting, geo-fencing, messaging and other events. The MT 4100 also features multiple I/O ports, 1-Wire® interface, Garmin Fleet Management Interface (FMI) and an M2M API that simplifies fleet management back-office integration and compatibility with the on-board smart agent event engine.
  • MT 3050: The MT 3050 is an on-board diagnostics OBD-II plug-and-play telematics solution built for both fleet management and Usage Based Insurance (UBI) applications. The MT 3050 features Novatel Wireless’ on board rules engine that supports customer-defined exception-based rules for applications such as ignition, geo-fencing, trip reporting and other events. It also has built-in threshold events to capture metrics critical to effective fleet monitoring such as excessive engine RPM, rapid acceleration, harsh braking, vehicle speed and excessive idling. The MT 3050 delivers enhanced performance utilizing an innovative antenna design and disconnect alert feature using an in-device backup battery.
  • Silent Passenger: The VTS Silent Passenger application is a fleet management program that makes it easy to efficiently monitor vehicles. Silent Passenger integrates detailed, up-to-date maps with real-time traffic information and turn-by-turn directions. Silent Passenger is a web-based solution and as such, users have the convenience and mobility of accessing the solution from any computer, anywhere, with no software installation necessary.
  • Premier Wireless Solutions (PWS) will serve as the distributor for the solutions, providing Novatel Wireless solutions to VTS.

John Cunningham, CEO, Vehicle Tracking Solutions, said: “Our partnership with Novatel Wireless has exceeded our expectations. The functionality and reliability of its M2M telematics solutions are ideal for helping our customers realize productivity improvements, with exceptional support for fast time-to-market and easy deployments.”

VTS’s integration of these solutions will provide M2M tracking capabilities for the Silent Passenger application, enabling the VTS solution to transfer from GPRS to CDMA. We look forward to continuing our relationship with VTS to provide next generation fleet management solutions.”
