MELBOURNE, Fla. – Terion, a two-way FM-based communication system designed for trucks, is now available throughout Canada thanks to a deal with the CBC.
The Terion system transmits text messages between a home base and trucks, while FM signals are less expensive than satellite-based counterparts, the company says.
“This agreement will expand our current coverage to include all of the heavily traveled truck corridors,” said Bruce Caven, vice-president and general manager of Terion Canada Communications. “The partnership with the CBC will serve as a single point of contact for all of our FM network.”
Terion has been selling systems to fleets between Windsor and Montreal since October 1999, while coverage will expand to the balance of the company’s Canadian FM network during the remainder of this year.
The company is headquartered in Melbourne, Fla. For more information on the Terion system, surf to www.terion.com. n
