)-- Trilithic, Inc, announced today that it is partnering with Wireless Matrix Corporation (TSX: WRX), to offer integrated GPS fleet management and Radio Frequency (RF) leakage detection products for the cable television industry.
The partnership integrates Wireless Matrix’s FleetOutlook vehicle tracking solution with Trilithic’s Seeker series of leakage detection devices, utilized by cable companies to detect RF signal leakage from the cable plant.
“The addition of integrated GPS to leak detection capability provides a strong benefit to cable technicians,” said Jim Harris, VP of Marketing at Trilithic. “The added level of functionality allows fleet operations data to be easily shared, opening the door to increased productivity without added complexity.”
Through the partnership, cable service providers will be able to track their mobile assets, coordinate technicians and monitor RF leakage repair status using an integrated platform of tools. This will provide a platform for reducing operating costs and increasing work efficiency. The integration is already at work for cable companies such as Time Warner Cable that are served by Wireless Matrix and Trilithic.
“This alliance with Trilithic places another valuable tool in the hands of cable service providers,” said J. Richard Carlson, president and CEO of Wireless Matrix. “Interoperability with other industry-standard applications used every day by cable technicians makes FleetOutlook the best choice for providers that want to increase profitability and achieve more with their fleet assets.”
