Five different wireless technologies on Digi fleet management telematics device

ConnectPort X5 family provides remote connectivity to mobile assets via cellular or satellite networks and was developed using satellite technology gained through the recent acquisition of MobiApps.

The telematics devices are said toprovide flexible wide area networking connectivity supporting cellular, Wi-Fi, GPS, VAN and satellite functionality. Cellular and satellite connectivity provide instant, always-on communications, allowing companies to switch networks easily. Wi-Fi provides a cost-effective way to transfer less critical/time-sensitive information such as logs, firmware upgrades and larger files across low-cost private or public Wi-Fi networks. Wi-Fi can also be used to network in vehicle or near vehicle Wi-Fi enabled devices like vehicle displays and handheld mobile devices. On-board GPS enables location tracking and geo-fencing. For customers choosing the optional satellite version, the ConnectPort X5 also includes a dome enclosure that optimizes RF performance and dramatically simplifies and reduces the cost of cabling and installation.
