Quake Global, a manufacturer of satellite modems for the trucking and heavy equipment industries, announced today, Dec. 6, that Volvo Trucks North America, based in Greensboro, N.C., will install Quake Global’s Q2000+ satellite communicator as standard equipment in all Volvo trucks manufactured with 2007 engines. The Q2000+ is an integral component in Volvo Link Sentry, Volvo’s proprietary two-way satellite communications system.
“We are delighted that Volvo Trucks North America has chosen to integrate Quake’s Q2000+ satellite modem into its state-of-the-art Volvo Link Sentry communications system,” says Polina Braunstein, president and chief executive officer of San Diego-based Quake Global. “Volvo Trucks is widely known for its insistence on maintaining the highest standards of quality and demanding that its suppliers do the same. Providing the Q2000+ modem for the Volvo Link Sentry is a major step for our growing company, and by meeting Volvo’s high quality standards, we have positioned Quake Global for many more growth opportunities in satellite communications.”
Quake Global’s Q2000+ and the Volvo Link Sentry have been standard equipment since late 2005 on Volvo’s VT 880 and VT 830 tractors. Volvo Link Sentry is a remote vehicle and driver performance monitoring system designed to give Volvo customers 24/7 access to technical support, while providing fleet managers with a wealth of information about truck operations.
