Companies to Demonstrate Applications at FOSE 2009
Washington, DC—FOSE—March 10, 2009—KORE Telematics, the world's largest digital wireless services provider specializing in machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, today announced it has teamed with Datalink Systems to deliver GPS tracking solutions for vehicles, aircraft and other high-value assets. Relying on the KORE network for ubiquitous, real-time wireless data transmission, Datalink Systems can now provide public agencies with GSM and CDMA based tracking solutions from a single network provider.
The mission-critical nature of public sector applications requires a robust and reliable network. Listed on the GSA schedule, KORE is the only wireless network provider offering government customers a comprehensive suite of GSM and CDMA data services optimized to meet the needs of their machine-to-machine applications. KORE solutions partners deliver a wide variety of government applications, including fleet management, asset and covert tracking for law enforcement and improved in-transit visibility; remote monitoring of critical infrastructure such as generators and pump stations; environmental monitoring and automated metering infrastructure for the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps.
Datalink Systems provides secure GPS tracking and IP packet data routing through its DataNet software. Unlike other hosted GPS tracking solutions that store sensitive customer information on a third party server, DataNet is installed securely in the enduser's data center, providing better control and enhanced security.
DataNET is currently licensed by government agencies in the United States, Canada, U.K. and Australia to secure high-value assets. KORE provides Datalink Systems with an integrated wireless network with the coverage, reliability, comprehensive management and optimized usage plans required to deliver its GPS tracking solutions to government agencies across the globe.
"We selected KORE because it offers both GSM and CDMA cellular network connectivity, a comprehensive network management portal and affordable routing costs," said Clive Ross, technical marketing director, Datalink Systems. "The KORE network enables our customers to track their global high-value assets from any location and also offers excellent adaptability for differing field applications. With KORE's wireless backbone, we are providing government agencies with flexible GPS tracking solutions built on a unique dual network offering."
"Government agencies require powerful tracking and security monitoring solutions to help secure assets, cargo and people," said Alex Brisbourne, president and COO, KORE Telematics. "Datalink Systems provides an innovative and customizable tracking solution that is ideal for government agencies. KORE is committed to helping its partners deliver reliable and cost-effective integrated M2M applications to their customers. Our wide geographic coverage and high network reliability remains a critical component of our partners' success."
