CALGARY, Alta. — CSI Wireless Inc. announced an agreement to begin supplying asset-tracking units to Caterpillar Inc., who manufacturers construction and mining equipment. Initial shipments are to begin this month.
Caterpillar will offer its new Product Link PL102C as an after-market product to enable equipment owners and insurers to accurately monitor their assets’ movements and engine running hours.
The Product Link PL102C will feature configurability to enable users to select what operational information – movements and engine hours being only two of many options – they want to remotely receive from their mobile assets.
The Product Link PL102C will use the MicroBurst cellular network developed by Aeris.net. MicroBurst employs existing networks’ infrastructure as its transmission medium.
The core technology of the Product Link PL102C will be CSI Wireless’ Asset-Link 100 asset-tracking system, which combines CSI’s proven wireless and GPS technology.
