La Jolla, Calif. — June 12, 2012 — Blue Sky Network today announces the launch of New SkyRouter, a fleet management portal for land mobile, aviation, and marine applications. New SkyRouter is a feature rich, cloud-based solution designed to support connectivity with remotely dispersed mobile assets including Blue Sky Network’s advanced Dual-Mode GSM and Iridium tracking and communications services. This new solution enables seamless connectivity with assets in problematic cellular reception areas, where only ten percent of the Earth is covered, and in remote locations. Only Iridium®-based communications devices and services work globally through connectivity via the world’s furthest reaching network.
Today’s fleet managers require around-the-clock communication with widely distributed mobile assets. Overall safety and fleet efficiency can be achieved through alerts, monitoring of position data, and unique event reporting. New SkyRouter leverages the integration of Blue Sky Network’s industry-leading HawkEye 5300 which enhances coverage of GSM cellular tracking capabilities with truly global coverage to deliver dual-mode tracking and event reporting of assets located anywhere in the world. Now, fleet managers can receive real-time updates which include GPS location information, messages, and on board diagnostic (OBDII) alerts, among others, everywhere.
“Our next generation New SkyRouter for land mobile fleet applications furthers our commitment to be a market leader in advanced tracking products for customers who demand customized solutions and exceptional customer service,” said Jon Gilbert, CEO and founder of Blue Sky Network. “This new platform, in concert with our superb products, means more mobile asset sectors can benefit from smooth integration of tracking hardware with a cloud-based portal for seamless command and control across multiple asset types and deployments.”
New SkyRouter works in combination with Blue Sky Network’s robust certified hardware, which can be easily installed on land, aviation and marine assets. Features include over-the-air parameter settings, automated event reporting, local sensor data capture, and two-way messaging capability.
“The New SkyRouter is an innovative solution from an important Iridium partner enabling fleet manager’s global visibility of their important assets though the cloud,” said Greg Ewert, executive vice president of global distribution channels at Iridium. “This level of visibility provides vital data delivery to fleet operators who are driving further efficiencies into their business, meeting regulatory requirements or protecting the safety of their personnel or assets.”
