Multi-network connectivity for tracking MaaS assets
Caburn strongly advocate the use of multi-network connectivity for keeping track of MaaS assets for two key reasons:
Coverage: No single network offers complete coverage of every part of a city or country, and limiting your assets to the cell sites of one operator can lead to some of them ending up lost in a backwater.
A multi-network profile on a SIM card will offer maximum geographical coverage.
Resilience: All networks and individual cell sites are susceptible to occasional outages, a multi-network SIM card profile lets your assets simply, and automatically switch to another network if this happens.
Given the scale involved with a successful MaaS scheme, operators should also take a good look at the functionality of the communications partner’s management platform, to ensure a good long term fit.
A powerful and simple to use platform should allow very large scale, widely dispersed fleets to be monitored from one page, regardless of network operator or country. Ideally this should enable the operator to manage by exception, knowing that they only need to focus on any assets behaving out of the normal parameters.
