Fleet-tec selects Peplink for innovative internet, entertainment and security solution for mobile homes
4G service and VPN bonding deliver reliable and flexible IP services
UK – 12th February 2015 – Peplink, a leader in developing internet load balancing and VPN bonding solutions, has announced that its partner Fleet-tec has developed an innovative service to help Mobile Home owners gain access to pay-TV services, reliable internet connectivity and enhanced CCTV security while on the road and at camp sites.
Fleet-tec, part of the K&M (Acoustics) group is a highly respected innovator in vehicle technology working with a wide portfolio of commercial bus, coach and haulage companies as well as thousands of private customers. As an early adopter and installer of entertainment systems within vehicles, Fleet-tec has evaluated a number of technologies over its 20 year history and as Keith Stockley, sales director for Fleet-tec explains, “The arrival of reliable 4G mobile networks has allowed us to unlock a huge number of new services and the Peplink HD series provides both reliability and flexibility to deliver many of these connected innovations.”
Fleet-tec offers a new integrated offering for Mobile Homes that allow owners to create a mobile broadband hotspot complete with redirection of traditional services running within the fixed home such as SKY and Virgin Media pay-TV services, Spotify and Netflix. The system also has optional CCTV cameras with movement sensors to provide remote monitoring within and around the vehicle with notification and viewing to smart mobile devices to provide owners with peace of mind when away from the vehicle.
Fleet-tec uses a Peplink HD2 to provide a rock solid VPN connection using a mixture of two 4G mobile broadband providers plus Wi-Fi as WAN all managed by Fleet-tec which has the ability to connect to local Wi-Fi hotspots to provide enhanced connectivity for each vehicle. Fleet-tec also provides installation of a gateway device at the mobile home owner’s premise providing connectivity to the home entertainment services that are routed over the 4G VPN network to the vehicle.
“Each home owner is effectively using the services they already pay for such as satellite and cable TV while on the road with the Peplink unit providing a reliable link and local mobile Broadband access,” says Stockley. Each unit also has an optional GPS and is installed within a secure fixture including local hard disk storage for CCTV footage and downloaded content to provide a complete mobile entertainment, security and internet access solution.”
“The Peplink unit can also support multiple 3G/4G connections for customers who want more bandwidth and the unit can be easily managed to intelligently allocate resources for the different services running to ensure that video streaming or remote CCTV viewing gains priority when it is needed,” Stockley adds.
To date, Fleet-tec has installed its Mobile Home Infotainment solution within a number of vehicles and is planning to extend the technology to its commercial coach and bus customers.
