Networkfleet's data is transmitted over the Velocita Mobitex (formerly Cingular Interactive) network which enables Networkfleet to deliver a truly nationwide service. Mobitex covers over 93% of the U.S. business population and operates in virtually every major metropolitan area. Because Mobitex is a data-only network, it does not compete with voice traffic. The Mobitex network allows our customers to access Networkfleet services whenever and wherever they need them.
Wireless coverage is excellent in most areas of the continental United States. However, in areas where there may be limited coverage, Networkfleet's "store and forward" feature limits impacts from coverage gaps.
If a Networkcar-equipped vehicle enters an area of unreliable (or no) coverage, any unsent data is stored. All pending data is then uploaded to Networkfleet's website as soon as the vehicle travels back into the coverage footprint.
Store and forward capability guarantees the accuracy of your tracking data even if contact is lost for brief periods.
For fleets that have vehicles that normally operate in rural areas outside of current terrestrial network coverage, Networkcar offers a satellite coverage option. By equipping your remotely-located vehicles with Networkfleet's satellite unit, you can manage the location and performance of your entire fleet using a single vehicle management system - Networkfleet.
