Altair and Geotab Team up to Develop LTE-enabled Automotive Telematics Devices
Altair Semiconductor, a provider of LTE chipsets, is teaming up with Geotab, a global provider of open IoT fleet management solutions, to power the next generation of GPS vehicle tracking devices operating on AT&T’s 4G LTE network.
Designed to meet the needs of telematics applications, Altair’s CAT-1 chipset will usher in the new era of Geotab’s LTE-connected products. Customers can look forward to the advanced connectivity and longevity provided by LTE-enabled telematics.
“Low data rate LTE technology is perfectly suited for our telematics applications. Altair’s chipset addresses the low power consumption requirement while providing a highly cost effective yet future proof solution for our telematics products that are designed to last 7-10 years, or in some cases the entire vehicle lifecycle,” said Neil Cawse, CEO for Geotab.
Geotab’s end-to-end telematics solutions provide fast GPS acquisition time and highly accurate engine diagnostics. Key features include high quality recording capabilities, in-vehicle driver coaching, and accident detection and notification.
“Altair’s CAT-1 chipset is ideal for providing low-cost and power-efficient connectivity for a range of IoT applications,” said Cameron Coursey, Vice President of Product Development, AT&T Internet of Things Solutions.
Designed specifically for IoT and M2M applications, Altair’s chipset employs advanced idle and sleep mode power management. It offers a combination of low cost, reduced power and small size that is unmatched in the market.
