Beyond GSM: Satellite Connectivity in Wialon

GPS tracking has become a common thing in the modern world:  thousands of companies use GPS hardware to monitor transport location, speed, fuel consumption and other parameters. Absolute majority of GPS devices use GPRS for transmitting data to tracking systems’ servers. Despite the rapid development of telecommunication technologies, cellular connection still does not cover the whole globe.

To get around the issue, some opt for a “black box” recorder of GPS trackers: it stores the data on unit movement and transmit it to the server as soon as cellular network is available. But what about hose users who need constant real-time tracking? The solution is found at 740 – 35 000 meters above the ground. In other words, real-time GPS tracking in the areas with weak cellular signal can be provided by devices with satellite terminal.

Wialon offers ample opportunities to work with DDD files and online data on driver activity including remote downloading of DDD files from a driver card. Now we move on and release a new handy app for reading the driver card data through a USB card reader.

Wialon Longs for Wireless

Satellite monitoring market is constantly evolving to place new challenges before hardware and software manufacturers. Moreover, when the solution is already found, we continue striving for ideals.

Temperature control in refrigerated trucks is so far the issue of current interest for any transportation company. By now wired temperature sensors were able to face the challenge, while installators were bound by cables and tired with time-consuming mounting procedures.     

In pursuit of simpler but equally effective solution wireless sensors were suggested with extended functionality available in Wialon.
