DOT Integrates u-blox LTE Cat 1 Module in to its Solar Telematics Tracker

u-blox, a global provider of leading positioning and wireless communication technologies and services, announced that, DOT Telematik und Systemtechnik GmbH’s ultra-robust, solar-powered X-Rayl Solar Pointer  logistics tracker will use the u-blox LARA-R211 LTE Cat 1 modem with GSM fallback and positioning capability. DOT, an Austrian provider of robust telematics solutions for logistics, that develops intelligent, maintenance-free, and robust products and services, is a market leader in solar-powered telematics trackers. 

The X-Rayl Solar Pointer is hardly the first telematics solution to feature u-blox technology. This is among the very few devices that should never need their batteries to be changed. Specifically designed for container and cargo tracking, with a focus on rail transport, the telematics box was designed to withstand harsh handling, while providing a robust asset-to-cloud data link to transmit telematics and other sensor data, reporting temperature measurements, movement, and door openings in real time. 

DOT was impressed with the quality and reliability of u-blox’s SAM-M8Q GNSS receiver. After evaluating the LARA-R211 LTE Cat 1 modem with 2G fallback, they decided to source this tracker’s cellular modem from u-blox as well. u-blox has proven to be a highly reliable partner, delivering high quality solutions that add value to its products. 

u-blox is very pleased that DOT chose to design their LARA-R211 LTE Cat 1 modem into the latest edition of their solar tracker. The telematics market is one of a key market and they are proud to be part of such a highly competitive cargo tracking solution. 

Seeking a powerful modem capable of working in the challenging environment their telematics trackers are exposed to, DOT was also interested in reducing the number of suppliers their solutions relied on.
