CNH has signed an agreement with Iridium Communications, a global satellite communications firm, for the real time exchange of mobile voice and data.

Iridium’s satellite network will be integrated into the telematics offering for its Case and New Holland construction equipment. The brands’ telematics solutions, Case SiteWatch and New Holland Construction Fleet Force, will be able function outside of cellular coverage boundaries. This will effectively allow operators to communicate with their construction equipment regardless of the physical distances between them.

The new satellite service is offered as an additional option on the existing SiteWatch and Fleet Force packages.

Telematics enable users to: monitor the location and performance of their assets, enhance security by creating geofences (virtual perimeters which act as locators) and alerts and monitor fleet health, maintenance needs and fuel consumption remotely.

Customers can add the new satellite service to any machine – any brand – that has SiteWatch of Fleet Force installed and an active subscription. The new satellite system is designed to be flexible and portable, so that customers can transfer it from one machine to another according to their needs and work conditions.
