Geotab to add Cummins Connected Software Updates, Enabling Seamless Over-the-Air Connectivity
Geotab's Integration with Cummins Connected Software Updates Saves Users Time and Optimizes Fleet Operations
ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 7, 2023 /CNW/ - Geotab Inc. ("Geotab"), a global leader in connected transportation solutions, and Cummins Inc., a global power technology leader, announced an upcoming integration that will enable Over-the-Air (OTA) connectivity for Cummins Engine Control Units (ECUs) through Geotab's GO9 device – today at Connect 2023, Geotab's premier annual event.
OTA software updates will be sent directly to Cummins ECUs through Geotab's GO9 device, providing multiple benefits for fleet customers and OEMs:
Optimal Engine Efficiency and Performance: OTA software updates provide access to the latest Cummins software allowing customers to ensure their vehicle's ECU is running at peak performance.
Less downtime waiting for updates: Connected Software Updates can update engine software in less than five minutes. OTA software updates eliminate the need to perform calibration updates at service locations allowing users to update software when and where it is most convenient.
Safe and Secure: OTA engine software updates utilize a two-step approval process ensuring safe and secure installation.
"The Geotab and Cummins integration for over-the-air connectivity can save fleets time and money, while affirming uncompromised performance and security," said Scott Sutarik, VP Enterprise Solutions at Geotab. "Connected Software Updates ensure that our customers with Cummins engines are taking advantage of the latest genuine Cummins firmware, ensuring peak performance and innovation."
"This is a great next step in our growing relationship with Geotab to deliver the latest technology and capabilities to our common customers," said José Samperio, Executive Director, North America On-Highway at Cummins. "It offers scalability and convenience, allowing fleets the option to automatically deploy updates to their entire fleet in an efficient manner."
Geotab's Integration with Cummins Connected Software Updates will soon be available for select Geotab devices and compatible Cummins engines. Additional availability will be offered later this year.
