In addition to supporting fast Internet connections with crisp picture and voice quality, 3G/4G cellular connections have fostered seamless implementations of machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions in solving day-to-day problems.


SkyBitz, a global remote asset tracking and information management applications provider, has announced the new Falcon Series GXT100. This new global positioning satellite asset tracking system, working with 3G/4G cellular networks, will give quality coverage to numerous regions of North America.

On the bright side, the Falcon Series GXT100 build has a versatile design, eliminating weak points like external antennas or wiring. With its rugged design , battery power supply and adaptable design, users can easily install it on to different types of assets easily, whether or not the gadget is self-powered.

Complementing this versatility and adaptability to a wide range of assets is its excellent 3G/4G network coverage. Not only does this make necessary M2M communications faster, but it clears the solution of the looming shutdown of GSM networks.

Falcon Series GXT solutions not only have the capability to pinpoint the actual location of assets under surveillance, but also beam back actionable data that is critical in making delicate decisions . With these new services in the market, SkyBitz (News - Alert) takes a cellular-based product approach to clearing the huddles cluttering the road for real-time asset management and protection.

According to Henry Popplewell, senior VP and general manager at SkyBitz, this is just a fraction of the commitment the company has to offering the best fitted solutions to its customers.

Information collected by the Falcon Series solutions is transmitted over 3G/4G networks channels through SkyBitz Insight, a top-notch asset management tool, before delivery to end users. To increase the validity of actionable data, the solution not only hinges its computations on data transmitted by the tracking unit, but boasts an application program interface that accepts data feeds from other possible inputs.

With this low-cost adaptable design and extended battery life, investors can track unpowered assets like van trailers and construction equipment for hours without having to call them back to base. Additional information on idle times, arrivals and departures, speeds and geo-fence-based alerts will now put managers more in control.
