Cellular vs. Satellite

Cellular Vs. Satellite: Evaluating your Fleet’s Options

Just as there are a number of telematics providers for fleet managers to choose from, there are options for how the collected data should be transmitted. Is it best to go with a cellular provider, such as Verizon, or is satellite-based hardware the better choice?

If you’re like most Fleet Managers, you’re not interested in spending your days studying up on the pros and cons of cellular vs. satellite technology. Just like with your cell phone or your satellite TV, you just want it to work when you turn it on.

The good news for Fleet Managers is that a lot of progress can be made by asking two important questions.

Here are two questions to ask when debating
cellular vs. satellite telematics hardware:

Question 1) Is equipment operating in areas with poor cell coverage?

Verizon Coverage Map

If work locations are in well-known areas and the cellular signal is questionable or weak from one provider, you may still get reliable cell coverage with a different cellular network provider.

Most Cellular providers publish their coverage maps online and although they are not 100% reliable, they can often provide a starting place to know if the coverage from one provider will be sufficient for your company’s needs.

Question 2) Is Satellite the better answer for our communications needs?

If the answer to the first question is “yes” and cellular coverage from all other potential providers is weak, satellite may be your best bet.

Satellite-based hardware can work beautifully in areas where cell coverage is poor. Satellite technology is especially effective when companies determine that location and runtime is all that is required to vastly improve the preventative maintenance levels on equipment. This data is frequently a high priority with fleet equipment owners.

With location and accumulated run time, you will have enough data that service technicians can be directed to the location of the asset when, based on total run time, it needs PMs or other hands-on attention.

Pricing for satellite data has come down considerably and can eliminate concerns about coverage for companies that operate equipment in remote areas.

Evolution of a Telematics Solution

The Evolution of a Telematics Solution

There is a growing assortment of telematics platforms on the market today, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. As you’ll quickly discover when evaluating solutions, not all telematics platforms are made equal. In fact, how and why they were made is what often sets the great platforms apart from the weak ones.

The evolution of different platforms has depended largely on the vision and central objectives of the systems’ design from the beginning. Some platforms started out with a very basic “dots on a map” approach and weren’t originally concerned with data related to the equipment they monitored.

Pedigree Technologies’ OneView platform, on the other hand, was developed from the beginning with the idea that the customer needed more than location data—that diagnostics was important and central to the operation of most companies that wanted location tracking.

Choosing The Right Fleet Management Solution

There are many mistakes to avoid when it comes to researching and implementing a fleet management solution. That’s why we partnered with Field Technologies in creating Top 5 Fleet Management Mistakes to Avoid.

We want you to be as informed as possible when it comes to improving your operation with the latest in fleet tracking technology.

With the impending FMCSA mandate deadline drawing closer every day, we’ve seen a lot of new businesses pop up offering “ELD” and other fleet solutions. The last  thing you want is to be going through the implementation process again next year because the solution you chose over-promised and under-delivered.
