Enfora, a leading global supplier of intelligent wireless networking solutions, today announced the introduction of its Spider® AT Asset Monitoring and Management Platform designed around low power technology and powered by a long lasting battery pack that make it possible to track and monitor valuable corporate assets, such as trailers, containers or medical equipment, for up to 3 years—an extraordinary length of time for a wireless device that is not tethered to an external power supply.
Many companies are faced with the challenge of locating and managing their corporate assets in real time. Often, such assets cannot be located due to theft or misplacement. The Spider AT is an integrated wireless IP platform that combines global wide-area GSM/GPRS wireless connectivity and GPS location capability, allowing the user to retrieve critical information, such as asset movement, based on user-defined alerts, specific events or geofences, while at the same time optimizing power management and minimizing maintenance.
"Misplaced or missing assets are, unfortunately, too common for many companies," said Jeff Newman, chief strategy officer, Enfora. "Many of these assets are untethered from the network and stay in the field for a long period of time. The Spider AT was specifically developed to fill the need for a low power platform that can monitor and locate these assets."
Configured to work seamlessly with the Spider AT platform, Enfora's Services Gateway 2.0 provides a user-friendly environment to directly connect, manage and provision wireless devices from existing enterprise applications. Users are provided with a detailed view of their mobile assets, enabling proactive management and systematic upgrades when needed. The latest release of the Services Gateway supports browser-based administration, command pooling and firmware-over-the-air (FOTA) support. The Spider AT platform and Service Gateway 2.0 middleware bring together the key hardware and software elements required to enhance the rapid deployment of business applications while providing the tie-in to existing IT infrastructure.
