Verizon is rolling out Networkfleet on the Verizon Wireless network. The Networkfleet solution — part of Hughes Telematics, which Verizon acquired last year – will be combined with Verizon Wireless network and will debut in Verizon’s U.S. service fleet.
The Networkfleet telematics solution combines in-vehicle hardware and a Web-based application to store, view and analyze data on specific vehicles as well as overall fleet performance. Vehicles are equipped with a GPS device that sends information to the Networkfleet Data Center over a secure wireless network.
Features include GPS fleet tracking, asset tracking, fleet maps, vehicle diagnostics with alerts, roadside assistance, preventative maintenance and other fleet management tools.
Verizon is deploying Networkfleet to an initial 18,000 company vehicles in its fleet.
