The patented iTRAK(TM) Vehicle Tracking System from Data Burst Technologies is now available through eLutions, the company that provides wireless modems that operate on Nextel Communications' nationwide network.
Through a mutual distribution agreement between Data Burst and eLutions, Data Burst will now sell Nextel's iR1200 GPS-enabled modems manufactured by eLutions, and eLutions will sell the iTRAK product line, which includes iTRAKpro, iTRAKjava and the NavView(TM) mapping/reporting Internet software.
"This agreement will allow Data Burst to offer an enhanced level of service to Nextel customers," said Data Burst President Tom Grounds. "The combination of the iTRAK system with a rugged iR1200 modem is ideal for accommodating mobile workforces such as EMS, police, fire and field service. Customers who use PCs or metering/monitoring equipment in the field will have the benefit of iTRAK's ability to send position updates and other information for automatic vehicle tracking by a dispatcher or a home office, all over the Nextel network."
"We chose to partner with Data Burst Technologies because of their leadership in Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) software and solutions utilizing the Nextel network," said Mike Powell, managing director of wireless applications for eLutions. "Data Burst's state-of-the-art software suite is the perfect complement to our rugged modems. By working together, we can offer a more flexible, end-to-end solution to better meet the unique requirements of mobile workers in all industries."
The iR1200 Rugged Modem and the iR1200 GPS-Enabled Modem allow mobile workers to connect laptops, mobile data terminals and PDAs to Nextel's nationwide network for real-time remote access to company databases and mission-critical data applications in industrial settings. Both modems meet military specifications for resistance to temperature, shock, vibration, moisture, dust and electromagnetic radiation, ensuring consistent operation even in unforgiving environments, according to the company.
The standard iTRAK(TM) Web-appliance is a vehicle-mounted device, configured to transmit real-time position data to a network server. The location information can be accessed at for fleet management purposes, including improved efficiency, driver accountability, customer support, dispatch, vehicle/driver safety and theft protection.
The iTRAK(TM) line of products is designed to accommodate an individual or single vehicle (to assure personal safety for an executive or armored transport for example), or fleets of any size, according to the company.
