With Informant on the Connect® tracking platform you have total control of your assets. Informant uses the GPS and GLONASS constellations for a higher level of location accuracy, then relays this location data back to our servers using LTE Cat M1 cellular data.
LTE Cat M1 is a low‑power wide‑area (LPWA) air interface that lets us connect IoT and M2M devices with medium data rate requirements. It enables longer battery lifecycles and greater in‑building range, as compared to standard cellular technologies such as 2G, 3G, or LTE Cat 1.
Connect® Informant is also compatible with the latest NB-IoT standards. As US carriers begin upgrading cell sites to take advantage of NB-IoT technologies we are already positioned to take advantage of these features. NB-IoT will offer greater reliability along with even better energy efficiency and extend the battery life of devices beyond the current two-week limit.
