Providing global roaming connectivity is one piece of the package that Tele2 IoT delivers to Regent Mobile. Another is 2DISCOVER, which offers analytics, behaviour, and most importantly when it comes to tracking assets, location insights. This is something Regent Mobile has experienced first hand.
“About a year ago, I called our Tele2 IoT Manager about an asset that had been stolen – someone had jammed the device or put the unit in a container and we had no coverage,” explains Stok. “At the time Tele2 IoT was testing a new product, 2DISCOVER, and ten minutes later I was logging in – and immediately saw that the unit we were trying to track had connected early that morning. While we didn’t find the unit at that time it was recovered the following morning.”
Stok says that in maybe 30% of thefts they can’t get a GPS signal – thieves put the machine or car into a container and either block the signal with lead plates or with Mylar blankets (space blankets). This is where 2DISCOVER is very helpful to both Regent Mobile and to its customers.
