Raco Wireless, a machine-to-machine partner and enabler powered by T-Mobile, and Teletrac Inc., a provider of advanced fleet management solutions, announced a partnership whereby Raco Wireless will support M2M connectivity and SIM management for Teletrac’s Fleet Director GPS and Vehicle Tracking solutions.

Teletrac says it has a long history of partnering with T-Mobile, a provider of wireless services, and collaborating with the Raco Wireless team when they were part of T-Mobile’s M2M business. Teletrac will be working with that same M2M team as Teletrac migrates its M2M support to Raco Wireless, which is the T-Mobile Preferred M2M Partner.

“We continually strive to provide exceptional reliability to our customers, and the ability of Fleet Director to deliver driver, safety and vehicle information to customers without interruption is critical,” says Drew Hamilton, executive vice president of Teletrac. “We worked with John Horn and his team for more than eight years when they served at T-Mobile, and we look forward to leveraging their expertise as we work with them again in their new positions at Raco Wireless.”

Raco Wireless specializes in providing wireless connectivity for machine-to-machine applications via T-Mobile’s network. Raco Wireless says it makes it easy for companies like Teletrac to build, support and enhance M2M applications thanks to its streamlined approach to delivering customized M2M connectivity solutions. According to Raco Wireless, it can assemble a flexible end-to-end M2M connectivity solution for its partners – including delivering custom rate plans, tailored billing solutions and customized wireless connectivity as well as helping them with device certification and branding their M2M applications – within just hours or days.

“We’re thrilled to once again work with the dedicated and talented Teletrac team, many of which are recognized as pioneers in the telematics industry,” said John Horn, president of Raco Wireless. “As the world of fleet management evolves and becomes even more competitive, we will help Teletrac continue to innovate in the telematics marketplace with more speed and flexibility than ever before.”

Raco Wireless says its Omega Management Suite is a robust information tool that delivers added visibility into the wireless network and provides tools designed to simplify SIM management. Raco says OMS provides advanced reporting and alerting features, including real-time SIM monitoring and reports, overage reports and alerts, SIM activation and maintenance, SIM management, Web-based billing and APN system hardware status monitors.
