The agreement extends Secureseal’s remit in the UK becoming an outlet for Axonn’s world-leading technology and can now provide fully accredited support for several thousand tracker units already installed in the UK. Utilising low earth orbit satellites, Axonn has developed innovative technology for wireless global one-way communication and tracking of fixed and mobile assets. Secureseal has integrated Axonn technology with its own low powered RFID technologies to create SecureTrac, a web-based asset tracking system that is already proving a hit across the EU.
SecureTrac is the first-ever system designed to provide extended operation without external power source. This makes it very appealing for tracking shipments and assets including containers, swap bodies, rail wagons and other assets. By enabling significant improvements in asset management and logistics, Secureseal sees huge commercial potential for the technology and is spearheading business expansion across the EU.
To provide ubiquitous coverage around the globe, Axonn utilises the Globalstar low earth orbit (LEO) mobile satellite system, the world’s most widely used satellite communication network. Through SecureTrac, assets are located using Google Earth with current positions shown on a satellite image, aerial photograph or map.
“We are pleased to extend our partnership which allows Secureseal to penetrate all sectors in the UK and EU. Not only does Secureseal have a market-leading solution with SecureTrac, but they have a strong technical backup and well established contacts in transport. We see Secureseal as an ideal partner for Axonn in the EU region and they have already begun to spearhead what we believe will be a revolution in asset and shipping management for European organizations,” says Chad Holsinger, Axonn Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
Secureseal has already a well established client base in the transport sector with its market-leading security seals and RFID trailer monitoring systems. Supplying worldwide, Secureseal is part of the OEM Group that also has an established international business base. Axonn is headquartered near New Orleans and has pioneered the commercialisation of satellite and radio frequency-based hardware since 1985. The exclusive provider of STX2 transmitters for the Globalstar Simplex Data Network, Axonn has over 11 million units in operation.
