PeopleNet, has become the first fleet management provider to offer a connection to 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) networks, through its PeopleNet ConnectedFleet platform.
Through the ConnectedFleet platform, fleets can connect their drivers, devices and equipment in real-time to improve efficiencies and increase safety. With the introduction of LTE connectivity, PeopleNet customers can now have the potential for faster connection speeds and the ability to access information more efficiently in geographical areas that previously had little to no coverage.
In addition to realizing the benefits of LTE bandwidth and speed, customers will continue to gain critical insight into their fleet’s coverage through PeopleNet’s Managed Network. Unlike other fleet management providers, PeopleNet’s monitoring solutions provide highly-detailed wireless network metrics that report minute-by-minute connectivity, coverage depth and latency for all trucks in a fleet.
LTE coverage is available for fleets using the PeopleNet Mobile Gateway. The announcement of LTE availability was made at the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) 2017 Annual Convention being held in Nashville from March 26-29.
