Equipment tracking devices in train for Australian launch

American equipment tracking solutions company Geoforce has launched two new asset trackers in Canada that it says offers its most flexible and cost-effective coverage options

The new GT2c (cellular) and GT2h (cellular+satellite hybrid) trackers join the satellite-only GT2s in the company’s line-up for tracking non-powered assets and powered equipment.

Geoforce Australia has confirmed the company is currently undertaking approval processes with Australian carriers and networks, but are hoping to be able to launch the new products toward the end of this year.

Solar-powered and providing a wide range of device reporting configurations, over-the-air reporting profile update capabilities and industrial-strength durability, the trackers are built to work in difficult places – boasting certification for work in explosive environments.

The new GT2c device operates on LTE-M low-power cellular IoT networks, offering an optimal solution for operators using assets in mobile phone service range and who need cost-effective tracking.

The new GT2h device provides a unique hybrid solution that operates on cellular networks where available but automatically switches to global Iridium-powered satellite connectivity if mobile coverage is lost.

Geoforce chief executive James Maclean III says the devices reinforce his company’s position as a leader in asset traceability.

“Our GT2 devices underscore Geoforce’s promise that your assets and opportunities can always be in view,” he says.

“We can confidently say that our expanded GT2 line is raising the bar on asset visibility and rugged reliability for our customers around the world.”
