Datalink Systems Inc.
Datalink Systems Inc. has been developing wireless IP packet data
Communications Software for more than ten years!
This presentation focuses on how our DataNET solutions integrates
with Kenwood’s NEXEDGE digital radios and earlier analog radios.
Kenwood Mobile Radios
and DataNET
DataNET integrates NX radios with a range of data terminals and computers
by Datalink Systems Inc.
I.P. Packet Data Communications Software
DataNET is not just another GPS tracking software program. It is a comprehensive
wireless data solution used by Government Agencies and Corporations Worldwide.
DataNET is a complete “end to end” software solution designed to integrate with a range of 3rd.
Party Hardware products. Based on a conventional “client/server” relationship, rather than an
ASP service where the server is owned and controlled by a 3rd. Party, DataNET can be
installed in any Windows computer.
DataGate is the packet data IP routing hub which can be operated as a central server, catering
to a number of unrelated customers located anywhere there is internet access, or sold to larger
corporations or government agencies who wish to have complete “end to end” control within
their own network. DataGate can also augment an existing legacy host system, adding new
networks and features. DataGate will connect to an existing host program through a windows
port or common database.
DataGate will link to SQL and other ODBC compliant databases . It is also available with AES256 encryption for Government and Law Enforcements applications.
by Datalink Systems Inc.
DataHost is the optional “client” program that resides on the customer’s computers,
providing extensive tracking and reports options.
DataHost is fully integrated with the following mapping programs. Google Maps, Google
Earth, Bing. Other mapping programs can be used such as Streets-on-a-Disk and ESRIGIS. Those may require some development. Datahost can also provide a NMEA GPS
output for Marine Charts and 3rd. Party development. Mapping licenses may be required
for some applications.
Unlike the majority of ASP Web based AVL-GPS vehicle tracking services where a 3rd.
Party hosts all the data, DataHost stores all the historical data on the customer’s computer,
allowing for instant recall and Global map zooming in seconds.
DataHost is the “client” software located in customer’s computers and connects to the
DataGate over the Internet, Intranet or local LAN. The embedded mapping program links
are is Google Maps, Bing Maps and Microsoft Mappoint.
NexEdge and FleetSync
DataNET uses the Kenwood NEXEDGEradios and NXR repeaters and
Datalink's DataGate IP router to route two-way data packets between remote
NX radios and the base DataGate IP routing software. The DataNET software
also allows 3rd party devices to be connected to the data communication ports
on the rear of the NX radios.
DataNET can operate in a basic mode simply processing GPS data from remote
radios and two-way text messaging, or in advanced mode with a range of
hardware connected to the radios.
DataNET will also work with analog radios using Fleetsync.
Third Party hardware
for Kenwood NX700/800 radios
DataNET allows a choice of third party terminals to be connected to the RS-232 serial
data connector on the rear of the NX700/800 mobile radios. Compatible terminals
include Windows Tablets running our Mobius software, Motia MDT terminals and the
advanced Tracker i50B/C device which can provide multiple serial port connections
including an OBDll engine computer interface. The Tracker i50 has an internal 3 axis
accelerometer module which can monitor aggressive and dangerous driving habits
including excessive speeds and automatic accident reporting.
The following screens provide more details on these terminals.
Multi-network add-on terminal
adds Iridium Satellite and/or GSM networks to Kenwood NX700/800
radios with auto-switching when UHF/VHF network is lost.
• Accelerometer chip measures “G” forces
• Engine computer interface
• Three external serial COM ports
• 8 I/O ports
• Internal Iridium modem (optional)
• Internal GPRS modem (optional)
The Tracker i50b designed by
Datalink is probably the most
advanced mobile data terminal
available. Garmin nuvi add-on
provides for two-way text
messaging and map routing.
• 12 channel GPS
• Delayed power off
• Sleep mode
• Emergency alert capability
• Dual network capability
• Wi-Fi port
iMDT-2000 messaging terminal
The iMDT-2000 is a low cost yet very adaptable mobile
terminal which can deliver two-way text messaging,
GPS location reporting, and other additional services
unique to each client.
With a total of four serial COM ports the MDT connects
to the rear data port on Kenwood NX radios.
The iMDT-2000 will also connect to Lone Worker safety system and other devices.
Garmin nuvi units will work with
i50B Tracker units
two-way messaging and routing
In the transportation of freight, time is money! Drivers
getting lost on route costs both time and fuel, and in
today's economy the fleet manager must run an efficient
operation. By selecting Datalink's DataNET "back end"
software and a Garmin nuvi Fleet Management Terminal
such as the 765, drivers will be able to take the shortest
and quickest route to any address with turn by turn visual
track and voice directions.
The power of the DataNET software allows the dispatcher to select a destination point on
a map and to transmit the location over the radio link to the vehicle, where the Garmin unit
will calculate the vehicle's current location and the best route to the destination point and
display it for the driver to follow. DataNET will also allow two-way text messages to be
exchanged between the dispatch desk and the driver. The driver can send a choice of
"canned" messages. The GPS location of the vehicle is automatically sent to the
dispatcher's computer mapping display.

Mobius, developed by Datalink Systems Inc. is a “windows” based software program for mobile
laptops or ruggedized tablets. Mobius and DataNET can provide an "end to end" software
solution over multiple networks. Mobius would be installed in a mobile Laptop or Tablet P.C.
connected to a Kenwood NX 700/800 mobile radio. At the base end DataGATE routes the data
to DataHost workstations or 3rd. party programs.
Mobius can also provide on screen mapping and navigation plus two-way text messaging. By
adding a GPS receiver, the vehicle’s own position appears on the map as well as being
transmitted to base DataHosts.
NEXEDGE plus Wi-Fi
Datalink has developed a WiFi link which will allow two-way text messages and
Emails to be sent/received by an Ipod Touch or Ipad linked to Kenwood NX700/800 mobiles and NX-200/300 portables. A Wi-Fi module is installed inside
the NX_700/800 radios or an external dongle attached to the mic’ connector on
the portables.
An SMA connector on the rear of the mobile radios allows for a remote Wi-Fi
2.4Mhz antenna to be mounted on the external vehicle surfaces for longer
Email TCP data packets are converted to plain binary text by the DataGate
program to reduce the over the air data traffic.
GPS location using the Ipod internal GPS receiver is transmitted with each
message and also on a programmed timed report basis.
NX-200/300 with Wi-Fi
Datalink’s WiLink Wi-Fi dongle allows for a wide
range of compatible Wi-Fi enabled PDAs and
Smart terminals such as Ipod touch to exchange
two-way text messages, Emails and GPS reports
with a base dispatch or messaging from such as
Datalink’s DataHost.
NX-200/300 portables must have the updated
transparent-2 firmware installed.
