FALCOM FOX3-3G Series is now enhanced with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE 4.0) technology for combined Internet-of-Things (IoT) and Fleet Management Solutions, to manage both fixed and mobile assets.

We are pleased to announce the availability of FOX3-3G-BLE. It is a 3G/2G and a multi-constellation GNSS vehicle telematics device that features Bluetooth Low Energy connectivity for car access, car-sharing and car-rental and offers applications to connect, share or distribute information in real-time between smartphone and/or tablet and FOX3-3G-BLE beside plenty of other  applications.

FOX3-3G-BLE operates as a master or slave device depending on the required functionality. As a master device, it detects BLE beacons (compatible with Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy) within its field and collects their data. As a slave device, it connects to another device (e.g. BLE smartphone or tablet) and exchanges data.

The FOX3-3G-BLE does not support audio features neither via BLE nor using the audio port in the hardware.

The integrated multi-GNSS receiver is capable of using several GNSS systems to generate accurate asset positioning information.

FOX3-3G-BLE can operate with both internal or external antennas for 2G/3G and GNSS depending on the applicatons. Thus, the FAL-ANT-12 external antenna offers optimal reception. It features high performance GPS and 2G/3G reception, ideally suited for use with FOX3-3G series.

FOX3-3G-BLE offers:

  • 3G bands for global usage : 800/850/900/1900/2100 MHz
  • 2G bands for global usage : 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
  • Multi channel GNSS (GPS/Galileo/GLONASS/BeiDou)
  • Bluetooth 4.0 technology
  • All hardware and software features of FOX3-3G standard device

The BLE is only supported in AVL firmware version 3.0.0 and higher.

To test and evaluate the BLE functions of the FOX3-3G-BLE, FALCOM has developed a BLE demo application called “app-debug.apk” which works on smartphones and tablets running Android 4.4 and higher. This application can be provided to you upon request.
