“In the near term, our focus is set on Telematics, Telemetry and Security. Our flexible MiFi® technology platform allows us to open doors to a variety of segments within these verticals, including the development of new use cases,” says Mashinsky. The most advanced technology and a unique feature set means that the solutions customers purchase from Novatel Wireless are future proof and ensure that they are getting the best results possible.In Telematics, the current focus for the firm is UBI and Fleet management, where UBI is just beginning to take off on a global scale.

Alongside, Fleet Telematics, Novatel Wireless pours advanced technology not found in any other solution. The firm created a highly sensitive device in the MiFi Drive OBD and mobile tracking series with dual accelerometers known for its advanced diagnostics and crash detection capabilities.

A turnkey platform enables easy customization and quick deployment. One solution is the MiFi Powered SA 2100 LTE M2M gateway available for telematics or telemetry applications.
It is ideal for emergency response teams who need connectivity shared across a field fleet team and is also appropriate for applications that require high bandwidth such as video surveillance and digital signage.

There are many competitors, but very few true OEMs with a proven track record in innovation and leading tech in this space. This is what separates Novatel Wireless from the rest of the pack. The firm has cultivated strong relationships with distributors and global telcos and knows their markets and needs.

With state of the art Antenna Labs and three R&D facilities, owned by Novatel Wireless, the company is able to engineer and integrate a highly efficient proprietary antenna design for unrivaled performance.
