Case's SiteWatch telematics can now be used in areas without cellular network coverage
Case has extended the SiteWatch offering with Iridium satellite connectivity to provide its telematics services in areas without cellular network coverage. The new satellite service is offered as an additional option on the existing SiteWatch packages, enabling Case machines to transmit data from every corner of the globe even when normal cellular connectivity is totally absent. The new service is said by the Italian firm to result from its continuous search for solutions that help customers run their construction businesses efficiently.
The new SiteWatch extension transmits by satellite all the data managed by the telematics system, such as positions, status, performance, fuel consumption and vehicle health conditions at regular intervals, and alarms in real time.
Customers can easily add the new satellite service to any machine – Case and other brands – that has SiteWatch installed and an active subscription. The extension only requires the simple Telematics Satellite Kit and Subscription, available from Case Dealers.
The new satellite system is designed to be flexible and portable, so that customers can easily transfer it from one machine to another according to their needs and work conditions.
To ensure its customers benefit from the most reliable satellite service available on the market, Case partnered with Iridium Communications, a network provider known for its global coverage, low latency, small form factor, and for the quality of its signal. Case also selected one of the best satellite modem manufacturers, Quake Global, for its Telematics Satellite Modem.
