Cinterion, the global leader in cellular machine-to-machine (M2M) communication modules and a Gemalto company, and Digital Communications Technologies (DCT) today announced several successful early deployments of DCT’s Syrus GPS SY2210, a new intelligent tracking, tracing, and reporting device designed for the most demanding fleet management and stolen vehicle recovery solutions.
The new highly flexible Syrus GPS solution combines Cinterion-powered, always-on cellular communications with highly sensitive built-in GPS for best-in-class tracking capabilities. It features sophisticated theft recovery tools plus a fully integrated 3-axis accelerometer to detect and help manage driving behavior. Cinterion’s EGS5 Java module is compatible with virtually any end-user platform and enables customizable prompts and reporting plus cost effective, over-the-air software updates to meet wide-ranging customer needs.
“Cinterion’s Java module has been instrumental in helping us offer the most flexible tracking device on the market,” said Ignacio Escallon, vice president business development, DCT. “We were impressed with Cinterion’s superior customer support that helped expedite integration and customization to improve ROI.”
“DCT is a leader in the tracking and tracing segment for its ability to innovate extremely scalable, full-featured products like the new Syrus GPS,” said Peter Fowler, Cinterion’s regional president for the Americas. “The programming flexibility and over-the-air update capabilities of Cinterion’s Java module helps optimize customers’ technology investment when product needs evolve.”
Early implementers have reported the following mission critical benefits:
- Carrotech, a leader in tracking and tracing technology for 4-wheel drive vehicles and agricultural equipment, uses Syrus GPS throughout the UK. The movement sensor and ‘panic button’ features drastically improved drivers’ sense of safety on the road while allowing implementers to bolster their theft-prevention capabilities.
- Ride Systems, a leader in custom GPS tracking solutions, relies heavily on the Cinterion-enabled Syrus GPS tracking device for the outstanding customer support and the solution’s ideal form factor. The new design with dual internal antennas makes it extremely easy to set up and deploy.
- GPS Web Tracking, a US-based leading provider of GPS related products and services, offered its expansive worldwide customer base a choice between the DCT Syrus solution and another competing national brand. The Syrus/Cinterion solution was found to outperform the competition in product reliability, functional flexibility and overall ease of use.
