Module maker Novatel Wireless is to support fleet-management applications for Vehicle Tracking Systems and help the telematics player with its migration from GPRS to CDMA technology.

Services developed by Vehicle Tracking Systems already incorporate Novatel Wireless (San Diego, CA, USA) technology, including an “on-board rules engine” that supports applications like geo-fencing and trip reporting, and so the module maker was a natural choice of partner for the further development of services.

“Our partnership with Novatel Wireless has exceeded our expectations,” said John Cunningham, chief executive of Vehicle Tracking Systems. “The functionality and reliability of its M2M telematics solutions are ideal for helping our customers realize productivity improvements, with exceptional support for fast time-to-market and easy deployments.”

Novatel says it will help Vehicle Tracking Systems to provide new tracking capabilities for its Silent Passenger application, which integrates detailed maps with real-time traffic information so that vehicles can be more easily monitored.

The module maker will also help Vehicle Tracking Systems to switch from GPRS to CDMA networks, which are used by major US operators – including Verizon Wireless (New York City, NY, USA) and Sprint (Overland Park, KS, USA) – to support M2M applications.

“We look forward to continuing our relationship with Vehicle Tracking Systems to provide next generation fleet management solutions," said Peter Leparulo, chief executive of Novatel Wireless.
