AssetLink’s solutions incorporate
three basic components: Field Hardware, Data Networks,
and Web Software. Information on your assets is:
1. Collected in the field by the Field Hardware
2. Transmitted through the AssetLink Data Network
3. Displayed on the AssetVision Web Software for you
to act upon.
The AssetLink rugged self-contained
hardware devices are the links to your asset. Our hardware
installs in minutes with tape, mounting sleds, screws
or Velcro. All AssetLink hardware can be mounted without
additional harnessing, antennas, or external power.
Peel the tape, slap on the hardware, and you are on
the road. Developed for the US Military, AssetLink
Global offers the lowest cost, smallest, longest battery
life, and most reliable and rugged GPS tracking hardware
in the market today.

The AssetLink system uses the GPS network
of satellites to obtain a precise location for your
equipment. Any other data can be measured with sensors
built into the field hardware.
It then uses a second set of commercial satellites to
relay that information from anywhere on the planet to
specially equipped satellite ground station facilities
and to your desktop via secure internet link. Each unique
message is relayed multiple times through multiple satellites
to multiple ground stations, resulting in a very high
level of overall reliability.
To make it possible to track all your assets, the next
generation AssetLink hardware and service is as low-cost,
low-power, small, and reliable as possible. Unlike other
satellite systems, it takes the complexity out of the
field hardware and puts it in the satellite system,
the ground communications network, and the web-based
software. The service costs are among the lowest in
the industry due to the system’s innovative ability
to share spectrum with voice calls and high bandwidth
The Right Satellite Network for Your Needs
The AssetLink system uses a carefully
selected commercial “Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Constellation”,
which offers substantial benefits over commonly used
Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) satellites or other
LEO constellations. Benefits include lower power, reduced
transmission delay, less shadowing from buildings or
hills, increased reliability, and lower cost.
A LEO Constellation is a network of many satellites
that orbit to the north, south, and straight overhead,
so that several of these satellites are visible in the
sky at all times. Unlike with a GEO satellite, which
sits in the same spot in the sky over the equator, if
you are on the north side of a terminal or transmitting
from a deep valley chances are there is an AssetLink
satellite within view. And unlike other LEO constellations,
the one used by AssetLink is optimized
for short burst asset tracking and monitoring, not transfer
of large data files or phone calls. It is the best solution
available for your set of needs.
Mapping and Data Interface
Once received by the ground stations, your information
is collated and processed at multiple secure control
center and back office facilities. AssetVision
servers reside in a secure, reliable and redundant hosting
system and are supported by a Tier 1, five-nines hosting
facility. With high availability in mind, AssetVision
Back Office infrastructure is configured to be fully
redundant with automated failover capabilities. Data
generated by transmissions and user interactions are
stored in multiple servers to ensure data is secure.
Your data is then processed and displayed on the
AssetVision web software tool. AssetVision
is a full web based software solution for managing your
assets, providing historical details, and reporting
on activities. You can manage your entire fleet online
including provisioning new units, unit management and
mapping, setting up alerts and alarms, and detailed
reporting. AssetVision is readily available
to any user with internet access and is a single point
of access to account and asset information.
