SAN JOSE, Calif. — announced today that QUALCOMM will incorporate Aeris’ MicroBurst short data packet messaging service into its T2 Untethered TrailerTRACS asset management solution.

QUALCOMM’s implementation will take advantage of the latest version of MicroBurst, which offers short data packet messaging capability over both CDMA digital networks and traditional analog (AMPS) cellular networks. The multimode MicroBurst network allows QUALCOMM to provide virtually ubiquitous coverage over its customers’ operating lanes in the entire NAFTA trade zone, as the T2 Untethered TrailerTRACS solution uses a combination of high bandwidth CDMA and MicroBurst multimode service to communicate with QUALCOMM’s Network Operations Center.

"Aeris was chosen for QUALCOMM’s untethered trailer tracking solution in order to support customers who need both analog and digital coverage in the NAFTA region," stated Chris Wolfe, president of QUALCOMM Wireless Business Solutions.

MicroBurst complements QUALCOMM’s existing CDMA2000 1X service, which is the trailer tracking solution’s primary communications mode in the U.S. market. The combination of communications modes supported in the QUALCOMM untethered trailer tracking solution provides an optimized solution for coverage, capacity and cost. QUALCOMM is the first customer to embrace the multimode MicroBurst service. adapted its control channel technology to work with both analog and digital networks. The technologies will operate in conjunction with each other and will initially enable the same services that are currently being offered. New dual-mode (analog and digital) and dual-band (850 and 1900 MHz) radio modules will assess and select the technology that provides the best wireless connectivity depending on what is available in a given location.
