Clearwater, FL, United States, 2009/11/27 - Birds Eye Global Tracking, LLC, Clearwater, FL is awarded the prestigious AT&T Certification designation for superior performance and compatibility with AT&T and GSM/GPRS networks.
Birds Eye Global Tracking, LLC, announced today that their affordable, personal GPS tracking device was awarded the prestigious AT&T Certification for compatibility and optimal performance with AT&T and GSM/GPRS networks. Birds Eye was one of the first personal GPS tracking devices on the market to be designated as fully certified by the new AT&T testing laboratory in Austin.
“For the first time, consumers will have a clear choice when selecting the best personal tracking device for their loved ones, vehicles or valuables that has been certified by the AT&T labs for its superior network compatibility, data performance and signal quality,” said Birds Eye Global Tracking President and Founder, Jimmy Bitzas. “And Birds Eye did not sacrifice size for performance, since our tracker is one of the smallest and lightest devices on the market. It’s also the most accurate GPS device for tracking a subject indoors, according to independent testing”
Laboratory testing for the Birds Eye Tracking Device was conducted over a period of several months at the new AT&T wireless device testing laboratory, in Austin, Texas. The testing facility, which opened in 2009, subjects each device to a series of rigorous tests to ensure the operational reliability of each unit as well as its ability to function flawlessly across the entire AT&T wireless network.
What makes the Birds Eye Tracker perform so well in recent testing is its capability to combine two 21st century location technologies: the GPS (Global Positioning Satellite) system used by the US military and vehicle navigation systems and cell phone tower position plotting. Unlike the common vehicle navigation system, which must use line of sight from the satellites looking down at the vehicle, this new GPRS technology can now locate a subject inside a building and other structures. In a recent product test, the Birds Eye “Hawk-Eye” tracking device was able to pinpoint the location of a subject on the 30th floor of a high-rise office building, in downtown Tampa.
As with all Birds Eye GPS tracking systems (birdseyeglobaltracking.com), the Birds Eye GPRS is designed to work with the firm’s proprietary GPS tracking software, which provides geo-fencing capabilities, and worldwide satellite mapping with high resolution magnification and street level monitoring options. With 12-volt DC adaptability, Birds Eye GPS Fleet tracking systems can also be installed using a permanent hardwire connection.
Quad-mode GPRS circuitry gives the Birds Eye Tracker the ability to cover all 4 GSM frequencies, including 850, 900, 1800, and 1900 MHz bands, providing worldwide functionality. A full demonstration of this new worldwide track-anywhere technology is available on Birds Eye’s website or call for more information.
