Dual-Mode Option

If you work in extremely remote locations with spotty cell coverage, opt for the JDLink satellite module. JDLink will transmit via cellular coverage unless a connection can't be established - then JDLink switches to satellite mode to transmit information. 

A machine communicating via satellite will report hours, location, alerts, and many other Ultimate data sets. Call-in frequency for a machine communicating in satellite mode is once per day. Red alerts and geofence violations are sent immediately at any time, just like when in cellular coverage. Available for JDLink Ultimate only.
