Why Choose Open Platform Telematics Systems

The M2M industry is not new, though its presence in conversation as well as its technology continues to grow at an explosive rate to include new devices, software, and services that are continually evolving. With all of the options, it is important to understand what differentiates a superior telematics system from a less capable telematics system.

Improve Informed Decision-Making

The variety of data that can now be retrieved is almost limitless. It is no longer feasible to invest in a telematics system that limits access to data. No longer is it just about data either. An open platform telematics solution improves the level of data you can retrieve - eliminating locked access - and helps you understand the data. It also provides the ability to effectively analyze and use the data. There are no restrictions on accessing your data, and no restrictions on how to share that data.

An open platform telematics solution will maximize the benefits of M2M solutions regardless of vertical applications providing:

  • More increase of internal efficiencies
  • More improvements of personnel productivity
  • More reductions in costs
  • More insight into situational awareness

Quality SDK & APIs

A truly open platform provides the tools that open the access to the system in the form of a Software Development Kit (SDK) along with Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). A quality SDK provides single sign-on, advanced flexibility and control, is reliable, and should be free.

Both military and civilian government depends on the access to reliable and mission critical communications. GSE’s open platform telematics are designed for easy integration and meet the government's demands for security, flexibility, and capabilities.

Per our managing director, Jeff Palmer, “Our products run flexible cores that can process, ingest, output, and analyze data from modules, sensors, and applications hosted on our hardware.”

GSE’s open platform telematics lay the foundations for the control of your relevant data and the simplicity of integrating with other programs or systems providing the necessary scalability to meet the rapid releases of new technologies.

GSE’s MCG-101, for example, was designed to offer powerful and versatile Iridium communications to remote locations, aircraft, maritime, and offices. The MCG-101 is an intelligent terminal that operates as a multipurpose communications hub, Internet gateway, and GPS telematics device, with the unique ability to send and receive data, voice, and SMS, and also connect to other devices through RS232, Ethernet, and WiFi. The delivery of military GPS around the world is as easy as enabling the analysis services and connecting an integrated module.

Since its inception, GSE has provided M2M solutions that improve communications and allow businesses and governments to save lives, time, and money. Contact GSE to learn more about our open platform framework product line and how we can help you integrate the solutions that fit your explicit needs.
