CalAmp's vehicle-grade routers provide a secure digital hub for mobile workers to connect multiple smart devices, laptops, and the vehicle itself to empower business applications and analytics software.
The new alert engine also enables the router to seamlessly integrate and leverage CalAmp's Telematics Cloud, an application service enablement platform that offers customers the ability to easily harness critical, time-sensitive vehicle and equipment telematics data via real-time and historical data feeds available through simple web service Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). This turnkey cloud service enables greater efficiencies, improved business performance and scalability for streamlined profitability. The routers also support DeviceOutlook™, CalAmp's cloud-based enterprise-grade device management and control application, which supports over-the-air deployments and automated provisioning of custom configurations when devices initially connect to the network.
