PeopleNet introduces new Vehicle Gateway

PeopleNet announced the debut of its Connected Gateway (PCG) onboard device. Serving as a vehicle-bridging device, the PCG allows fleets the flexibility to connect to a wide range of in-cab displays and mobile devices via WiFi to 4G LTE cellular networks. The PCG can quickly be self-installed, connecting directly into the vehicle diagnostic port and mounted on the truck’s dashboard. The PCG connects to the engine bus and provides encrypted communication back to PeopleNet’s cloud data center.

“There are many technology options in the marketplace but fleets want a device that is built with security and longevity in mind,” said Witty. “The Connected Gateway is a compact but powerful device that will not only help fleets realize improved efficiencies but is built on a platform designed to continually meet their business needs—both today and in the long-term.”
