Cloud Managed Cellular Systems

Can your systems stand up to harsh conditions and or remote locations?

Regulatory requirements, industry best practices or even overt threats can require that a business or organization work over a private network or with private radio. But can your private system stand up to harsh conditions or remote locations? Does robustness and reliability mean sacrificing security? And can your system integrate with existing and public networks?

By partnering with Calamp their history of service has helped develop the answers.

Private network and private radio solutions have operated at top quality and top speed for customers in rail, utilities and government for years. They’re tested by time and proven in the field. And their innovative approaches keep you ahead of changing needs and regulations.

CalAmp IP modems and routers deliver secure high-speed, long-range communications with a robust set of features and many options in channels and spectrum, holding up under heavy industrial demands.

Calamp serial modems and routers match ruggedness to high communications performance, making them top choices for mission-critical applications requiring real-time control and high levels of reliability and availability.

For secure communication in extreme mobile environments, Private Mobile Networks and radios from CalAmp combine multiple spectrums, offering seamless roaming and great sensitivity with Parallel Decode technology and extensive GPS.

The following can all be addressed by Managed Connections in partnership with Calamp:

Cost Reductions

For fleet operators, fuel, vehicle maintenance and overtime expenses are all part of the job. With so many moving pieces, how do you stay on budget?

Every time a vehicle hits the road, the expenses start accumulating. Inefficient routes. Poor dispatching. Unnecessary idling. Side jobs. Multiply this one vehicle by dozens or, in the case of some fleets, hundreds, and the costs become considerable. Market variability makes the challenge harder. Prices go up, but the basic operational demands of your fleet remain the same.

Anytime and Anywhere Communications

How do you effectively communicate with your mobile workforce and your fixed assets in the field?

Can a driver access a full company dispatch schedule on the road? Can supervisors at the office detect a problem in a remote utility plant miles away—and then get the historic usage data to analyze its severity? Can a police officer or firefighter rely on a GPS coordinate while racing to an emergency?

These capacities are part of the true scope of today’s anytime/anywhere communications. It means more than point-to-point messages. It means comprehensive access to essential data, mapping and messaging that stands up under any environmental factors and communication that’s not just mobile, but on-the-fly.

Command and Control

Do you have the necessary tools for real-time decision-making and colaboration?

Command-and-control involves a complex set of integrated skills and solutions. There’s the movement and action of people, vehicles and equipment—how can you get each safely to where it needs to go? And timing—sometimes up to the second—is as critical as mapping. Finally, will your mobile workforce have the data they need to act with direction and intelligence?

First responders such as police officers, firefighters and emergency medical personnel rely on the intricate combination of voice, video and critical law enforcement data as they’re dispatched to save lives. But other industries increasingly face the command-and-control challenge as well: from utilities and water and wastewater to vehicle and cargo tracking, optimized situational awareness can pay off in increased safety and efficiency.

Monitor Fixed Assets

It’s the ideal in all walks of business and of life: Head off a problem before it gets started. In your industry, how do you monitor fixed assets, the key to getting to that ideal?

But remote locations of utility or water plants, sensitive machinery with parts and functions that are difficult to access, aging infrastructure, harsh deserts or icy coastlines—these are everyday challenges to those in industries such as utilities, oil and gas, water and wastewater, and more.

And the wireless technology that serves as the eyes and ears in these environments must be as robust and reliable as it is precise. A small problem can escalate to a life-threatening emergency. Long-term damage to fixed assets and replacement and repair costs are just the start. Far-reaching effects range from a flood of customer service complaints to interruption of critical services.

Asset Tracking & Recovery

Do you have the ability to locate your assets in real time, to control inventory, prevent theft and dispatch to the nearest resource?

When fixed and mobile assets alike are part of your business, knowing precisely where they are and whether they’re secure makes a big bottom-line difference. There are the overt threats of theft, deliberate damage, vandalism or security compromises. Misrouting, driver or dispatcher error, misplacement of equipment at remote job sites—such accidental incidents can be just as damaging to efficiency.

Today’s diverse job sites and required travel and logistics mean your assets are in environments where people come and go, weather conditions can be harsh and all the workers are moving at top speed. Tracking and recovery require robust, rugged and flexible solutions.

Monitoring Fixed Assets

It’s the ideal in all walks of business and of life: Head off a problem before it gets started. In your industry, how do you monitor fixed assets, the key to getting to that ideal?

But remote locations of utility or water plants, sensitive machinery with parts and functions that are difficult to access, aging infrastructure, harsh deserts or icy coastlines—these are everyday challenges to those in industries such as utilities, oil and gas, water and wastewater, and more.

Private & Secure Communications

Can your private system stand up to harsh conditions or remote locations?

Regulatory requirements, industry best practices or even overt threats can require that a business or organization work over a private network or with private radio. But can your private system stand up to harsh conditions or remote locations? Does robustness and reliability mean sacrificing security? And can your system integrate with existing and public networks?

Infrastructure Modernisation

How do you provide service continuity and performance, the lifeblood of utilities and any enterprise dealing in the energy or wastewater management industries?

These companies are investing significant resources to improve distribution and management performance via optimized automation—all with an eye toward boosting disaster recovery preparation and ecologically sound design.

On the energy front especially, Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) technologies are an integral part of the power generation and distribution process. Mobile data systems facilitate fast dispatch of work crews to problem areas. And converged mobile and fixed data solutions are driving the evolution of the most competitive, cost-effective utility communications operations of tomorrow.

Energy Demand Management

Balancing the needs of the consumer with a utility can be a challenge. Do you have the right tools for success?

In today’s energy distribution environment, utilities looking to optimize loading and improve forecasting and demand response face a variety of complex data, equipment, integration and regulatory issues. These challenges include incompatible metering hardware, proprietary data formats, securely transmitting large amounts of data and transforming data into actionable intelligence.

Communications for Positive Train Control

How do you develop a communications network that can interoperate across the U.S. rail network?

Positive Train Control (PTC) integrates command, communications and information systems for controlling train movements with security, precision and efficiency. And CalAmp is on the cutting edge, playing a key role in helping the industry develop critical communications technology.

This technology must work across all railroads, since freight trains need to traverse other railroads’ to provide cost-effective, efficient service. Similarly, freight and passenger trains often share the same tracks, making PTC interoperability necessary between the many U.S. freight and commuter railroads.

In addition, the data communications network needs to be interoperable, allowing trains to operate on any railroad, anywhere in the country. The challenge is to design and implement a data communications network that supports interoperable PTC.
