Teletrac Inc has upgraded its FleetDirector — its main fleet tracking system — to run over General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) networks. This upgrade lets FleetDirector provide more expansive geographic coverage for vehicle location in North America, and higher bandwidth transmission.
The firm is also announcing Prism, a GPRS location unit that current FleetDirector users can install in their vehicles to upgrade to the GPRS communication backbone. Prism is now part of the FleetDirector system package, which includes hardware installed in the vehicle, and Internet-based software that runs over the main office computer.
Prism locates vehicles using Global Positioning System (GPS) technology, and communicates location information to the Internet-based FleetDirector software via GPRS technology, a packet-based wireless communication service for data.
