Omnilink’s expanded Asset Tracker solution will provide Sprint’s business and government customers with new tracking and monitoring devices and features
May 8, 2012 – CTIA Wireless 2012 – Sprint is pleased to announce that Omnilink’s Asset Tracker solution will now offer an expanded selection of device options to address the evolving needs of enterprises, government agencies, and organizations who track and monitor the location and condition of their assets for resource optimization and theft prevention.
A variety of devices—provided by Omnilink—some containing smart sensors, give Sprint customers the capability to track and monitor ever more assets and capture even more critical information within a comprehensive, cost-effective and efficient asset tracking program.
This May, Sprint Business Direct sales channels will begin offering these new device options through the Asset Tracker platform:
• The Sendum® PT300™ device supports smart sensors such as temperature, light and motion to address theft prevention and asset management. For example, shippers can use the PT300 to monitor valuable cargo in transit, ensure warehoused goods stay in the correct temperature range, or detect tampering if a package has been opened. Omnilink’s technology also enables a sleep mode with motion alerts to allow the PT300 to stay in the field for weeks or months at a time without recharging.
• The Omnilink OM210T™ provides customers with a highly reliable, ultra low-cost, indoor/outdoor asset tracking option. The OM210T is ideal for shorter battery life requirements where loss of the device is possible in transit. The OM210T is based on the technology in Omnilink’s time-tested offender monitoring devices, making it one of the most reliable asset tracking solutions in the market.
• The CalAmp® LMU-2610™ provides companies with an affordable way to track vehicles and construction equipment and Omnilink extends features such as location history, speed, stop reports, and geofencing for remote asset management. The 2610 features leading-edge technology including a new 3D accelerometer to provide the high reliability that fleet owners demand.
“This expansion is the latest example of how Omnilink offers the industry’s broadest, deepest portfolio of intuitive and reliable tracking and monitoring solution,” said Steve Hudson, Omnilink’s chief development officer. “But we’re not resting on our laurels. Instead, we’re continuing to support an even wider range of devices to meet the demand for new features, applications and price points.”
“Through our collaboration with Omnilink, Sendum and CalAmp, Sprint business customers have a one-stop shop for nearly any asset tracking need,” said Wayne Ward, vice president-Emerging Solutions Group, Sprint. “We have a dedicated team that fast tracks M2M solutions to market. To date, Sprint has certified hundreds of M2M solutions and has millions of devices running on its network today. Wireless asset tracking is an example of how connected devices are changing every aspect of our lives, impacting how we work and live.”
This expansion builds on Omnilink’s long-standing relationship with Sprint. Sprint also provides the network infrastructure for Omnilink’s offender monitoring, Comfort Zone®, and AmberWatch GPS™ solutions.
