At last week’s Mobile World Congress in Los Angeles, Nova Mobile Systems introduces a portfolio of LPWAN Cat-M and NB-IoT asset trackers.
 
The California company provides wireless communications, GPS tracking and remote asset management systems. The latest line of tracking and remote monitoring devices is for use with low-power wide area networks (LPWANs), including NB-IoT and Cat-M1 4G LTE, offering a pathway to 5G IoT.
 
The products are certified and ready for use over multiple cellular networks, including AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon. These multi-sensor devices are suitable for various uses, such as remote asset and facilities monitoring and management.
 
Enabling access to 5G IoT, the asset trackers are configured to run on both high power (Cat 1-4) and low power (Cat-M to NB-IoT) networks, giving users the flexibility of operating in varying data and power usage environments.
 
“We are thrilled to introduce the nation's first narrowband capable portfolio of asset management devices,” said George Ecker, CEO of Nova Mobile Systems. “Our range of products is immediately available to allow our customers to efficiently integrate and leverage the benefits of narrowband as well as Cat-M to fully benefit from today’s low-power wide area networks. The advances in these products offer significant improvements in power management and lower operational costs for our customers, while providing consistent and reliable network connections.”
 
Nova’s products are being used across several industries, including agriculture (fuel and fluid tanks), healthcare (EMS vehicles), and retail and hospitality (refrigerated food delivery and worker safety). IoT assets are tracked, managed and controlled using the company’s Nova Assure IoT management platform centred on machine learning to provide real-time alerts, hours of service, and predictive maintenance and analytics.
 
Nova Mobile Systems is an IoT enabler and systems integrator of wireless communications, GPS tracking, remote asset management and IoT services. The company’s products are made in the USA and used in industrial applications, including fleet management, security, and equipment and facilities management.
