CalAmp Announces Ruggedized Cellular Router for Smart Vehicles

By Ken Briodagh September 01, 2016

CalAmp, a provider of wireless products, services and solutions, has announced its Vanguard vehicle-grade family of cellular routers, and that it has enabled them with PEG, CalAmp's proprietary programmable event generator, which continuously monitors vehicle operating environments and responds to pre-defined and configurable threshold conditions such as motion, location, geo-zone crossings and custom parameters.

The routers are designed to support a true intelligent vehicle area network, CalAmp said, by providing an extension at LTE speeds from vehicle to in-field resources, mobile workforce, mission-critical data and remote applications.

The telematics alert engine functionality also enables the routers to integrate directly with a vehicle's CAN bus interface to provide access to engine diagnostic interface data, to track vehicle location and speed, and to monitor key driver behavior metrics like hard braking, cornering and acceleration. The goal is to support a sophisticated combination of vehicle data access and delivery, and allow a broad array of real-time, connected applications. In terms of security, the company said it provides a secure digital hub for mobile workers to connect multiple smart devices, laptops, and the vehicle itself to empower business applications and analytics software.

“As the leading provider of telematics systems with more than seven million devices currently deployed, CalAmp's vehicle-grade router family provides secure broadband connectivity integrated with its core competency in smart vehicle solutions,” said Mike Zachan, SVP and GM, Wireless Networks, CalAmp. “Our Vanguard router family now includes CalAmp's full suite of market-leading vehicle telematics technology that has been deployed worldwide by some of the largest and most sophisticated companies across the transportation ecosystem.”

This new alert engine also integrates with CalAmp’s Telematics Cloud, an application service enablement platform for connecting critical, time-sensitive vehicle and equipment telematics data via real-time and historical data feeds. The routers also support DeviceOutlook, CalAmp’s cloud-based enterprise-grade device management and control application for over-the-air deployments and automated provisioning of custom configurations when devices initially connect to the network.
