Article - Teltonika, Poynting and GPS – for your vehicle tracking needs, by Louise Barrett
The Teltonika RUT955 and RUT850_GPS both offer GPS functions that may be of use to vehicle owners. The integrated GNSS (GPS & GLONASS) functionality enables location tracking and logging using the Teltonika Automatic Vehicle Locator (TAVL) server. If you use the Teltonika routers acrossRUT955 your fleet you can manage them all remotely. With full support of the centralised Teltonika Remote Management System you will be able to access, control and monitor all of your routers within a single platform.
Geo-fencing functionality provides additional security – you can receive SMS/Email notifications when the device moves out of a pre-defined geographical area. The location can also be received by SMS on demand.
You are not limited to the Teltonika service, you can use other platforms such as GpsGate or similar. In the RUT routers configuration table you add the information into the GPS section – details such as APN, server address and so on.
Article - Antenna Choices for your Vehicle, by Louise Barrett
The Solwise antenna range has traditionally contained antennas that have been mounted on a pole or on a wall/building/portable building but in more recent times we are seeing more antennas used on vehicles. These include a wide range of vehicles such as cars, buses, lorries, caravans, motorhomes, boats, barges and even a space agency, an F1 team, mountain rescue teams and a defence contractor have all bought antenna hardware from us so who knows where some vehicle antenna have ended up!
Across our range we offer permanent and temporary solutions for antennas to mount on your vehicle; these antennas cover WiFi solutions and Mobile Data Solutions which means we have something for most situations.
