GlobalEyes Offers Unparalleled Capabilities for Tracking, Management and Control of Assets, People and Vehicles
Wavetrend Technologies Ltd., a world leader in the deployment of active RFID application solutions, announced today that it is expanding its portfolio of innovative products with the release of GlobalEyes, a revolutionary global tracking solution, incorporating multiple communications and tracking technologies with a software management suite. GlobalEyes is set to revolutionize the way in which assets, people and vehicles are monitored and tracked across the globe. Wavetrend is currently working on several pilot projects within the container logistics and vehicle tracking sectors.
GlobalEyes delivers real-time visibility and intelligence on the location, condition, status and other important information on high-value assets—making it ideal for monitoring of shipping containers; military, construction and mining personnel in high-risk environments; and tracking of transportation modes such as vehicles, cargo ships and rail cars. GlobalEyes delivers unprecedented, end-to-end supply chain visibility and addresses the challenge of providing high security and reliability in complex global applications. It is the most reliable and cost-effective solution for mission-critical applications such as end-to-end supply chain visibility, logistics and international security initiatives.
“We are already working on multiple projects around the world where GlobalEyes is offering unparalleled reliability in ensuring that the assets, containers or vehicles being tracked are completely visible and manageable remotely through the system,” said Saleem Miyan, President & CEO of Wavetrend. “Customers are already recognizing the ROI potential that the GlobalEyes solution offers, and we welcome any enquiries from other prospective customers wishing to conduct trials of our GlobalEyes technology.”
GlobalEyes uses multiple modes of two-way communication—including active RFID, GPRS, SATCOM GPS, GSM, and ZigBee wireless mesh networks—combined with a web-based information management bureau that offers remote and real-time visibility in critical applications. GlobalEyes offers a completely mobile reader infrastructure and therefore does not require the use of a fixed reader.
By utilizing continuous data transmissions generated by multiple sources, GlobalEyes overcomes the limitations inherent in traditional supply chain infrastructures that rely solely on fixed readers to gather data. The complementary technologies incorporated into GlobalEyes provide the greatest visibility of assets in transit, fostering real-time decision-making when it matters most.
GlobalEyes is the result of a partnership between Wavetrend and System Planning Corporation (SPC) of Arlington, VA. The GlobalEyes solution combines Wavetrend’s portfolio of superior,
high-performing active RFID products with the flexible, worldwide capabilities of System Planning Corporation’s asset tracking and condition monitoring system.
“Unlike any other solution, GlobalEyes addresses a multitude of application challenges that our customers in industries such as container logistics, robust vehicle tracking and asset management are facing today. Rather than relying on one source technology, it provides an overlapping solution that assures visibility that our customers demand while at the same time providing an appropriate complementary range of technologies to deliver visibility in the harshest and most difficult of environments,” said Mr. Miyan.
Operationally headquartered in the United Kingdom with regional offices in South Africa, Asia, and the United States, Wavetrend is a world leader in the deployment of active RFID and track-and-trace solutions. Wavetrend technology enables enhanced management of people, assets, and logistics for improved business performance while optimizing customer return on investment and payback time. Through both its direct Professional Service teams and its global network of accredited application and integration partners, Wavetrend delivers a wide selection of proven, superior-performing active RFID products and track-and-trace solutions to customers around the world and supports a variety of industries including transport, automotive, defense, healthcare, aviation, and construction.
