Telit Wireless Solutions Introduces New GPS/GLONASS Module for Navigation Devices [Professional Services Close - Up]
(Professional Services Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Telit Wireless Solutions, a company focused on machine-to- machine (M2M) wireless technology, announced a new dual GPS/GLONASS module that it says "dramatically improves" navigation performance by providing access to both the Russian GLONASS global navigation satellite system and U.S. GPS.
According to a release on Feb. 29, Telit Location Solutions' new Jupiter SL869 provides three times the usual satellite visibility by accessing to up to 22 satellites compared to the six or eight satellites normally available through standard GPS, providing optimum performance for any navigation application, from personal and asset tracking to automotive solutions.
As described by by Telit: The Jupiter SL869 reduces the delay from several minutes to seconds for a navigation device to acquire its position after being powered on. The module also reduces the incidence of lost satellite coverage, especially problematic in urban areas with tall buildings, by enabling additional satellite fixes that reduces blind spots. Finally, the module enables more accurate positioning, better "pinning" a person, car or an asset's true location on a digital map.
"Accessing the combined GPS/GLONASS constellations is a major step forward in navigation, providing the best satellite geometry to obtain the most accurate position possible more often," said George Arnott, vice president, Telit Location Solutions, a business unit of Telit. "The difference in performance between standard GPS and GPS/ GLONASS is like night and day. Telit is proud to be one of the first OEM module providers to offer this innovation to the global market."
"With its first official product launch under the Telit umbrella, Telit Location Solutions has released a leading-edge navigation module that's destined to have a major impact on the GPS industry," said Oozi Cats, CEO of Telit. "As with all Telit products, customers will also receive premier global support from design to deployment."
Formerly known as Navman Wireless OEM before being acquired by Telit in January 2012, Telit Location Solutions serves the GPS market and has sold millions of its high-performance Jupiter GPS modules worldwide.
