Quake Global, BIGmate announce telematic modem for asset tracking

Quake Global, Inc. (San Diego, Calif., U.S.A.), a manufacturer of M2M communicators for asset tracking, and BIGmate Monitoring Services Pty Ltd (West Mackay, Australia), a provider of telematics software, have announced their partnership to bring BIGmate’s telematics application to Quake’s new line of M2M satellite and dual mode modems.

Designed for fixed and mobile use, the Q4000 and Q-Pro modems aim to provide global M2M communications with land, marine or aviation based assets and equipment such as heavy machinery, fleets, ships and containers.

Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, these modems are capable of communicating across any satellite or terrestrial network, according to Quake.

The company went on to say that in addition to multiple network configurations and optional GPS to serve a variety of markets and price points, options include CAN bus, memory, antenna detection, and multiple analog and digital inputs/outputs and relays.

According to Quake, BIGmate’s servers process the raw data and then transform and deliver valuable information to the customer via its secure web portal. BIGmate’s web based service provides asset audit trails of activity, both live and historical. Information such as asset location, condition monitoring, engine hours, and driver safety and behavior monitoring aim to enable customers to optimize asset utilization, safety and productivity.
