Blue Sky Network announced the launch of New SkyRouter, a fleet management portal designed for land mobile, aviation, and marine applications. The company describes New SkyRouter as a feature-rich cloud-based solution designed to support connectivity with remotely dispersed mobile assets, including Blue Sky Network’s Dual-Mode GSM and Iridium tracking and communications services.
Blue Sky Network says the new solution enables seamless connectivity with assets in problematic cellular reception areas and in remote locations. New SkyRouter leverages the integration of Blue Sky Network’s HawkEye 5300, which enhances coverage of GSM cellular tracking capabilities with global coverage to deliver dual-mode tracking and event reporting of assets. Fleet managers can receive real-time updates, which include GPS location information, messages and onboard diagnostic alerts, among others.
“This new platform, in concert with our products, means more mobile asset sectors can benefit from smooth integration of tracking hardware with a cloud-based portal for seamless command and control across multiple asset types and deployments,” says Jon Gilbert, chief executive officer and founder of Blue Sky Network.
New SkyRouter works in combination with Blue Sky Network’s certified hardware, which can be installed on land, aviation and marine assets. Features include over-the-air parameter settings, automated event reporting, local sensor data capture and two-way messaging capability.
“The New SkyRouter is an innovative solution from an important Iridium partner enabling fleet managers’ global visibility of their important assets though the cloud,” says Greg Ewert, executive vice president of global distribution channels at Iridium. “This level of visibility provides vital data delivery to fleet operators who are driving further efficiencies into their business, meeting regulatory requirements or protecting the safety of their personnel or assets.”
