Hirschmann, Inthinc Partner to Launch Mobile Technology Platform

Hirschmann Solutions, a supplier of antenna and transceiver systems, has partnered with telematics service provider Inthinc to launch a new mobile technology platform.

The Hirschmann M2M Gateway module, which features a 3G wireless gateway and Wi-Fi router, is designed to expand connectivity options for fleet vehicles, heavy-duty trucks, and construction and agricultural equipment.

The product gives telematics service providers and their customers the flexibility to use one telematics device for a variety of applications without the need to redesign and recertify communications hardware, Hirschmann said in the July 1 announcement.

“We’re pleased to launch the Hirschmann M2M Gateway to augment our WaySmart telematics solution," Inthinc CEO Todd Follmer said. “The M2M Gateway enables higher speed connectivity and data throughput, which in turn allows Inthinc to deliver on our core values, including driver safety, fleet operational efficiency and regulatory compliance.”
