Sierra Wireless (USA) has introduced the Airlink MP70 router providing a link to the cloud. It comes with J1939 connectivity.
“Organizations can now monitor all their critical vehicle data and manage their entire fleet through a single pane of glass with our AirLink router and management systems,” said Jason Krause from Sierra Wireless. “No other router solution in this class can deliver this level of vehicle awareness and connectivity to fleet and IT managers.”
With the ALEOS 4.9.0 software release, the MP70 will support an in-vehicle bus interface using a direct cable connection (J1939 and OBDII), so customers no longer need to buy external dongles or scanners to monitor vehicle health. This software also enables built-in sensors (accelerometer and gyroscope) for inertial navigation to provide precise geo-location capabilities, even in urban canyons and underground garages where satellites can’t be seen. The built-in sensors also provide the ability to monitor driver behavior, including harsh acceleration and braking.
The MP70 router a high-performance vehicle networking solution to connect multiple high-bandwidth applications in and around the vehicle, while also providing IT departments with the flexibility to manage mobile assets in the cloud or in the enterprise data center using AirLink Network Management solutions. The router seamlessly integrates out-of-the-box with the AirLink Mobility Manager (AMM), an end-to-end network management solution that enables instant network insight and control for centralized and remote management, monitoring, and configuration. AMM is available as a cloud service or as an on-premise solution. It integrates telemetry features across the AirLink in-vehicle product line.
