Telit, a leading global company in Internet of Things (IoT) enablement, announced that it has entered into a partnership with Boatrax – a vessel tracking company, to develop a first-of-its-kind smart IoT boat monitoring solution.
By leveraging the deviceWISE IoT Platform and the cellular IoT communication modules of Telit, Boatrax has developed a one-of-its kind diagnostic and monitoring solution – Boatrax Box that aggregates vital data about the performance of boat and its owner behaviour in real-time.
Commenting on the development, Arturo Malave, CEO and Co-founder, Boatrax, said, “Creating the Boatrax Box was born out of a need for effectiveness and simplicity. During the prototype stage, it was clear we needed an IoT technology partner with device-side capabilities and expertise.”
“Telit not only enabled us to design a cloud-based plug-and-play solution that allows owners to monitor and protect their boats remotely but also reduced our time to market,” Malave said.
Dennis Kelly, Senior Vice President Sales – Americas, Telit, said, “Partnerships are key for providing businesses with best-of-breed IoT solutions that meet their unique needs and goals. With Telit’s technology, Boatrax has a number of different communications networks to pick from, now and in the future – a key characteristic for a tracking solution meant to be mounted on something as mobile as a boat.”
“It also allows Boatrax to focus on their core competency and powerful differentiator of delivering end-user value,” he added.
Boatrax Box is incorporated with proprietary algorithms that adapt to the behaviours of boat operator and provides critical information like predictive maintenance alerts, location and engine diagnostics to ensure maximum efficiency.
The Boatrax Box is engineered with MultiTech SocketModem Cell that uses XE910 family of modules by Telit. The solution is simple to mount and easy-to-use, while offering the most comprehensive set of connectivity features in a compact form factor.
