Myriota, a provider of satellite connectivity for the Internet of Things, has announced a new partnership with Future Fleet International, an Australian telematics provider that delivers fleet management solutions. With this partnership, Future Fleet will reduce the carbon footprint for multiple industries by developing a new vehicle and asset tracking technology, the NX-01 intelligent tracking solution, underpinned by Myriota’s low-power IoT technology and satellite connectivity.
The partnership will provide Future Fleet customers across agriculture, mining, and logistics and transport with a reliable and cost-effective tracking solution to complement traditional cellular-based GPS tracking devices especially in remote and isolated areas. The new solution will launch in Q4 2020.
“Our partnership with Future Fleet is a testament to the forward-thinking nature of both organizations. Together, we’re creating an opportunity to not only rapidly advance the capabilities of the transport and logistics sector at large, but also lower the sector's carbon footprint through optimised routes and reduced fuel consumption,” said Alex Grant, CEO of Myriota. “Future Fleet’s new NX-01 intelligent tracking solution is the culmination of two best of breed companies working together, providing transport organizations with a distinct advantage over their competition and total visibility of their assets.”
“Future Fleet has always been a customer-centric business, providing the best service and technologies possible to our customer base. Our partnership with Myriota provides us with the capability to revolutionize how our customers track and manage their assets, allowing for a more reliable and cost-effective technology across the board,” said Richard Saad, General Manager, Future Fleet. “When analyzing the IoT landscape as a whole, we knew quickly that we wanted to partner with Myriota as they’ve consistently been ahead of the competition in driving innovation in IoT and growing a global network. We’re thrilled to work closely with Myriota and bring its global network of satellite IoT connectivity to our customers.”
Myriota was founded to revolutionize the Internet of Things (IoT) by offering disruptively low-cost and long-battery-life global connectivity. Based in Adelaide, a focal point of the Australian space industry and home of the Australian Space Agency, Myriota has a growing portfolio of more than 20 patents, and support from major Australian and international investors. With deep heritage in telecommunications research, world-first transmission of IoT data direct to nanosatellite was achieved in 2013. Myriota has made this ground-breaking technology commercially available for partners worldwide.
