BlackBerry Expands Asset Monitoring Solutions

By Ken Briodagh March 22, 2019

At the American Trucking Associations’ recent Technology & Maintenance Council Annual 2019 Meeting, BlackBerry Limited launched its BlackBerry Radar H2, a new intelligent, data-driven asset monitoring device designed to help automate operations, improve utilization of trailers, containers, chassis and other remote assets, while ensuring assets are safe and secure.

Available now, BlackBerry Radar H2 reportedly expands on the core capabilities of BlackBerry Radar-M to provide enhanced coverage and connectivity to 4G LTE cellular networks, in addition to a wireless gateway that can also connect to sensors in cargo, for tire pressure monitoring systems, brakes and weigh-in-motion devices. Additionally, when mounted on a chassis, BlackBerry Radar H2 can detect whether a container is either ‘on’ or ‘off’ with no additional wires or external sensors.

“For the intermodal and trucking industries, timely and accurate information on asset location, performance, and utilization improvement has never been more important,” said Christopher Plaat, SVP and GM, BlackBerry Radar, BlackBerry. “BlackBerry Radar H2 will deliver what our solution has long been known for – data you can trust, 10-minute installation, long-lasting battery life, low maintenance and the scalability that fleet owners need as business needs change.”

BlackBerry Radar H2 provides information in near real-time through an intuitive online dashboard and its high-capacity built-in lithium thionyl chloride battery operates in extreme temperatures from -40°C to +85°C (-40 to +185°F). No installation training is needed, and devices begin tracking without calibration.


The IoT Evolution Expo, and collocated events, IoT Evolution Health, LPWAN Expo, The Smart City Event, and IIoT Conference, will take place Jan. 29 to Feb 1 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Visit IoTEvolutionExpo.com to register now.
