Top Global Introduces the World's First 3G MobileBridge Communications Gateway for Mobile Intelligent Transportation Systems
This innovative Third Generation Cellular MobileBridge™ solution includes always connected high speed mobile IP communications with seamless roaming, GPS positioning and tracking, remote video surveillance/monitoring, cellular VoIP communication, dynamic content filtering, credit card/smart card processing, RF ID asset tracking for the intelligent transportation, logistics, telemedicine, emergence responder, public safety, and homeland security industry
Los Angeles August 16, 2006 -- Top Global today introduced the world's first 3G MobileBridge™ communications gateway for mobile intelligent transportation systems (ITS). The MobileBridge™ is a patented, mobile/portable wireless system. It is the world's first and the most integrated 3G mobile IP communications gateway. The MobileBridge™ currently supports all 3G standards including EDGE, UMTS, HSDPA, CDMA 1x, EVDO, and EVDO Rev. A . It will also support mobile WiMax and HSUPA. With EVDO Rev.A, the MobileBridge™ delivers up to 3.1Mbps download and 1.8Mbps peak upload speed, thus many innovative mobile and wireless applications can now be delivered.
The MobileBridge™ ITS supports the following features and applications:
1. GPS Tracking
2. Dynamic content filtering
3. Mobile Hot Spot with integrated Radius AAA (Airpath certified)
4. Supports walled garden, local & remote web portal.
5. Mobile wireless surveillance in motion
6. VPN and SSL for enhanced security
7. Remote Central Management, Real-time data traffic/bandwidth monitoring and management using SNMP protocol
8. Credit card, Smart card, RFID processing for payment and asset tracking in vehicle
9. Support VoIP over 3G Cellular for voice communication
10. Supports other M2M communication with sensors and controls
By connecting a GPS Mouse to the serial port of the MobileBridge™, real-time GPS location information can be sent from a vehicle to a central Geographic Information System (GIS) server. The GPS Mouse can get position information from satellites through the MobileBridge™ and can transmit that info to GIS server via cellular network. The MobileBridge™ now offers both GPS tracking feature s as well as Internet access at the same time.
Top Global's MobileBridge™ communications gateway can be used by public transportation companies to offer "Mobile Hot Spot" service for passengers creating an entirely new revenue model. With embedded RADIUS module, the MobileBridge™ offers several AAA possibilities for the services including usage/traffic (Mbits), monthly, daily, and hourly fees, with credit card payment options. The MobileBridge™ is fully certified by Airpath Wireless, who provides the backend OSS for many commercial hot spot operators around the globe. If the transit authorities prefer to offer internet access for free, the dynamic content filtering capabilities reduce their direct liability for access to unwanted or inappropriate content. Local and remote portal offers user's information about the services, the ability to sign up accounts or even fill out a survey.
When the MobileBridge™ is installed within a police vehicle, fire truck, or ambulance a standards-based Mobile IP communications network that supports roaming as well as a common platform for highly secure VPN/SSL encrypt information sharing can be utilized. This is critical for government agencies in an event of disaster or emergency. The local WiFi hot spot can provide internet connectivity for handheld devices as well as laptop and smart card readers to verify identity and access information from a central data base. The MobileBridge™ also enables mobile wireless telemedicine in real-time. This saves precious time and improves hospital/doctor efficiency in an effort to save people's lives.
The MobileBridge™ can be installed on school buses, public transit, and trains to improve safety and efficiency. The GPS tracking capability can identify the location of the vehicle in real time. When installed with a Smart card or RFID reader the MobileBridge™ keeps track of the exact time passengers get on and off the vehicle at the exact locations. The wireless surveillance camera on the vehicle keeps monitoring what is happening in-side the vehicle and/or its surroundings while the vehicle is in motion.
Logistic s companies can manage their trucks and assets better using this solution. The administrators of transportation operators and logistics companies can monitor damage, location and speed info of all their vehicles in the field. The MobileBridge™ also allows easy real-time communication with drivers using VoIP at no additional cost. The video surveillance capability opens a new realm of opportunities and applications. When combined with RFID, all assets and packages with RFID tags can be tracked in real-time. This reduces the instances of lost, stolen, or mishanded packages.
Historically, each of the above features requires one separate system and/or device. For the first time, the MobileBridge™ ITS communications gateway unifies all these features in one highly integrated solution. It reduces the complexity and cost to install multiple systems and devices. Additionally, it cuts on-going maintenance and operational cost of multiple communications devices. The ability to seamlessly migrate to next generation technologies protects business’ Return on Investment.
