(ENP Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ENP Newswire - 26 September 2013
Release date- 25092013 - Leuven, Belgium - Option (EURONEXT: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), the company connecting Things to the Cloud, today announces the successful deployment of the CloudGate M2M 3G gateway in GPS4Hire's innovative fuel truck monitoring solution.
CloudGate enables remote connectivity to the vehicle and the fuel tank flow meters via the 3G connection to the GPS4Hire platform. This allows fuel distributors to have real time access to vehicle operation data, delivery status, and fuel capacity on hand. By implementing Options CloudGate 3G gateway, GPS4Hire has broadened the window of opportunity for M2M technology integration. The vehicle data is transmitted to the CloudGate over Wi-Fi from an adapter connected to the vehicle. The fuel tank instruments are connected via an RS-232 serial cable.
Kirstie McLaughlin, Co-Founder GPS4Hire, said: 'CloudGate's ability to add just the technologies we needed for our solution allowed us to provide our customers with a dynamic solution at a compelling price point. The flexibility of the CloudGate's software environment allowed the data from the vehicle and fuel tank systems to be easily integrated into our platform. We were so pleased with the support we received from Option for the creation of the initial proof of concept all the way through to the commercial deployment.'
Jan Callewaert, CEO at Option said: 'The GPS4Hire solution provides a great example of the solutions that can be implemented with CloudGate. In this particular case the flexibility provided by CloudGate's two expansion slots makes adding the necessary technologies to connect to the local subsystems simple and cost effective. The flexibility of CloudGate's standard embedded Linux environment allows data to be processed or formatted locally to ease integration with systems in the cloud.'
