M2M Module Receives Verizon OK

— February 01, 2013

Novatel Wireless has received technical approval from Verizon Wireless for its MT 3050 mobile tracking device.


The OBD-II device is designed for insurance telematics and fleet management providers across a number of verticals, including automotive insurance, safety/security and roadside assistance, vehicle servicing, driver behavior management and fleet management.
 
When installed, the device will provide information such as vehicle location and/or driver behavior.
 
The MT 3050 features integrated disconnect alert supported by an in-device backup battery. In addition, the mobile tracking device has Novatel Wireless' on board rules engine that supports customer-defined exception-based rules for applications such as ignition, geo-fencing, trip reporting and other events.
 
It also has built-in threshold events to capture metrics needed for fleet and insurance monitoring such as excessive engine speed, rapid acceleration, harsh braking, speed violations and excessive idling.

The asset management solution can be coupled with Novatel Wireless' Communications and Management Software platform to monitor, manage and reconfigure devices remotely.
