OnAsset Intelligence Inc., a provider of machine-to-machine wireless asset tracking, sensing and control solutions, announced that its relationship with Sprint has produced a dual mode CDMA/GSM asset-tracking solution for use around the globe.
OnAsset’s Sentry asset-tracking solution is used to track the location, temperature, pressure, humidity, light, motion, shock and vibration of high-value assets transported via any mode of freight. Sentry is designed to keep customers informed on the whereabouts, and the status of their cargo, via M2M-based communications with OnAsset’s Vision management platform, across the Sprint wireless network.
“Sprint’s open approach to expanding the M2M ecosystem, flexible and robust networks, and proven ability to execute solutions helps businesses and consumers benefit from M2M opportunities,” says Wayne Ward, vice president of emerging solutions for Sprint. “Companies like OnAsset and their Sentry product bring distinct enhancements to our M2M portfolio. Our value proposition is built on streamlining the process of deploying M2M solutions, while enabling customers to tap into our extensive M2M ecosystem, where they can choose from a broad selection of applications and expertise to support their specific objectives.”
OnAsset says it has worked closely with Sprint for several months to create a dual mode version of Sentry that now expands the reach of asset-tracking capabilities and offers customers greater flexibility in deploying the solution.
“We’re excited to be working with a forward-thinking wireless carrier that’s as passionate about changing the landscape of the M2M industry as we are,” says Adam Crossno, OnAsset’s president and chief executive officer. “We’re leveraging Sprint’s world-class network domestically and globally via Sprint’s international partners to establish a worldwide footprint for our asset-tracking technology.”
