Asset tracking and telemetry platform

The owa11 is an optimized, fully featured vehicle, asset tracking and telemetry unit. Its design has been the result of the experience of Owasys with over 100,000 units on field during the last 21 years. The owa11 is an ideal product for a wide range of applications as Transport & Logistics, security and surveillance, trailer tracking, insurance rental, caravans, etc.

The owa11 has been designed in a compact size with GPS (GLONASS) and GPRS internal antennas focused to simplify the installation. The large 1800mAh battery combined with the different sleep modes and configuration options provide the customer with a long time period of reporting and monitoring relying only on battery power.

The owa11 is CE certified, ROHS compliant and is fully designed and manufactured in EU.

Improved M2M communication technology

Based on MQTT: IoT-ready lightweight publish/subscribe real-time messaging protocol well suited to work in the mobile and M2M environments.

MQTT features:

  • fast response and throughtput
  • low battery and bandwidth usage
  • allows the deployment of devices to all environments, even private and NAT-ed networks, through non privileged ports
  • Open source and standard
  • More information can be found here .

MQTT is a perfect fit for use cases where:
