VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 28, 2012) - Webtech Wireless Inc. (TSX:WEW), a leading provider of vehicle fleet location-based services (LBS) and telematics technology, today announces the immediate availability of its WT5130 Locators with next-generation 3G cellular network connectivity. Designed for mid-tier fleets, particularly service fleets and light transportation fleets in commercial and government markets, the WT5130 Locator offers a select range of options at an optimal price point.
The WT5130 is designed for scalability. Fleet operators can choose to add components to meet their individual fleet needs like EOBRs (electronic onboard recorders) including the award-winning Webtech Wireless MDT 3100 In-Cab solution or a Garmin device with Quadrant Job Management, and turn-by-turn visual and voice instructions. Alternatively, a fleet operator with temperature-sensitive cargo can configure the device to monitor temperature fluctuations and provide real-time alerts. The WT5130 is ideal for newer fleets as its engine diagnostics is designed for light and heavy duty CANbus vehicle standards.
"Customers who need more than simple track and trace functionality, but don't need the extended features of the WT7000 series Locators, will love this new device and its price. Adding 3G network capability to the 5100 series provides an affordable option to fleet operators who want to take advantage of this new cellular network footprint while future proofing their fleet." said Ernie Chatham, Vice President, Quadrant Products and Services at Webtech Wireless.
Building on the success of the WT5110 2G, the WT5130 3G increases the capability to handle more data at a faster rate. 3G is increasingly becoming the standard with many of the major mobility providers in North America. The WT5130 demonstrates our continuing innovation, vision, and commitment to customers for the long term.
"Our leadership position in GPS location-based technology has enabled us to create a new locator platform with numerous applications across many industries. As with all of our Locators, the WT5130 has been designed as a rugged and reliable solution to increase productivity, simply achieve regulatory standards, reduce costs, and improve the safety and security of workers and mobile assets," said Scott Edmonds, President and CEO.
The WT5130 is available for immediate purchase from Webtech Wireless Inc.
