TransCore introduces a smaller, faster, more power-efficient proposition for satellite-based asset tracking technology. At the heart of these innovations is a new core modem that reduces the size of the terminals and extends battery life from three years up to seven years, doubling battery life of trailer tracking products on the market.

Through this technical advancement, TransCore introduces two new GlobalWave satellite data communication terminals, one for basic tracking applications and one that enables both tracking and monitoring with a full suite of sensors. Both enable two-way, all-satellite, nationwide communication between fleet operators and assets.Design modifications yield various benefits such as:

  • Third-generation core modem: Faster response (under a minute); efficient power management with less battery drain, and integrated GPS.

  • Streamlined design: Height is just above three quarters of an inch (0.8 inches), making it less visually obvious and reducing the potential for theft or dismantling.

  • Reduced power usage: Increased battery life from the usual three years up to seven years.

  • Easier installation: Can be installed in less than 10 minutes on loaded or unloaded trailers.

  • Seamless integration: Interfaces with leading transportation management software providers.
