Ayantra Integrates Cinterion's BG2 M2M Module into New Asset Management Solution

​CTIA Wireless, ORLANDO, FL, Mar 22, 2011 - Cinterion, the global leader in cellular machin​e-to-machine (M2M) communication modules and a Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO) company, and Ayantra, a leading remote asset management solution provider, together announce the launch of FleetWare, an innovative remote monitoring solution for tracking assets that do not have a power source. FleetWare integrates Cinterion’s tiny BG2 module to meet the small size requirements necessary for tracking non-powered assets such as shipping containers, fertilizer tanks, agricultural storage sheds and more. FleetWare is available immediately worldwide.
 
Cinterion’s BG2 is a compact, cost effective, wireless M2M communications module with an innovative, integrated antenna for field-proven, reliable cellular communications virtually anywhere in the world. BG2 significantly reduces total cost of ownership for customer applications, offering optimized power efficiency, best-in-class 2G features and Full Type Approval plus pre-approval with the largest global mobile network operators.  
 
Currently, monitoring remote and mobile assets that do not have a power source is challenging and requires careful compromise between device size and battery life. Ayantra’s power-efficient FleetWare now offers a long-lasting solution in a miniaturized form factor that‘s easy to install in even the most constrained spaces. FleetWare monitors data and uses Cinterion’s BG2 module to reliably and securely send updates over cellular networks from anywhere in the world to the Ayantra server. Authorized users can log on anytime to view the status of assets and manage out-of-sight equipment.
 
Cinterion is our communications technology partner for the highest quality, most reliable wireless M2M modules as well as mission-critical customer support and product approvals that helped expedite our time to market,” said Ashok Teckchandani, CEO, Ayantra. “BG2’s compact size, global communications ability and fast sync times enabling optimized power consumption made it a great choice for FleetWare.”
 
FleetWare, powered by Cinterion’s BG2 module, dramatically cuts costs by providing remote management of assets that once required bi-weekly field technician service visits that cost at least $75 per truck roll,” said Peter Fowler, Cinterion’s regional president for the Americas. “We’re thrilled to work with Ayantra on this innovative remote monitoring solution that is helping to revolutionize business processes and improve efficiency for M2M customers.”
