WebTech Wireless Inc. has introduced the WebTech 4000 telematics device, which uses both GSM/GPRS networks and the Orbcomm Satellite Network to provide transport fleets with an always-on connection to their back office.

The company said WebTech 4000 is the first fleet telematics device to combine the high data throughput of North America's new coast-to-coast GSM/GPRS networks, a global satellite network for non-cellular areas and GPS to power WebTech's suite of wireless fleet services.

"Fleet operators can no longer comfortably rely on analog networks when analog's traditional shortcomings in data delivery are coupled with its now limited future," said Frank Viquez, director of automotive electronics for Allied Business Intelligence Inc.

The WebTech 4000 and Quadrant Wireless Fleet Services for trucking/transportation fleets will be commercially available in June.
