Volvo Trucks North America is making San Diego-based Quake Global’s Q2000+ satellite modem standard equipment on all Volvo trucks manufactured with ‘07 engines. The Q2000+ is an integral component of the “Volvo Link Sentry,” the OEM’s proprietary two-way satellite communications system.

Polina Braunstein, president & CEO of Quake Global, pointed out the Q2000+ and the Volvo Link Sentry have been standard equipment since late 2005 on Volvo’s VT 880 and VT 830 tractors. Now the system and modem are being expanded to cover all Volvo models equipped with ’07 engines as part of the company’s support package.

Volvo Link Sentry is a remote vehicle- and driver-performance monitoring system that gives Volvo customers 24/7 access to technical support. It also provides fleet managers with truck operation data such as speed, fuel economy, hard braking events, etc., Volvo noted.
