Datalink Systems Inc.
Datalink Systems Inc. has been developing wireless IP packet data communications software since 1996. Our DataNET IP routing software is considered a leader in the field, and is in use by military and Government agencies around the world. The US Department of Justice uses five encrypted DataGates for protection and monitoring of field agents.
In 1996 Datalink Systems Inc. management took a different approach to developing GPS based tracking software. Rather than designing a GPS tracking hardware device and then creating base office tracking software to work with the device, Datalink’s engineers were tasked with developing a back-end software system capable of working with a range of devices, including those developed by other companies. This allowed for multiple networks and a wide range of devices to be fully integrated into a common system.
The DataNET suite is a complete end-to-end software solution designed to integrate with a range of third-party hardware products. It can be installed on any Windows Server or PC, allowing complete control of the software without the cost and loss of control associated with an external provider.
DataGate is the packet data IP routing software that 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 control within their own network. DataGate can also augment an existing system adding new networks and features. DataGate will connect to an existing server through TCP/IP connections or common SQL database.
DataGate acts as an I.P. router, processing and relaying data between multiple wireless networks and Internet connected DataHost or Webclient workstation software developed by Datalink or 3rd. Party programs on local, regional or global basis.
DataGate routes packet data over the following satellite and terrestrial networks;
Kenwood NEXEDGE & Fleetsync…Motorola Radio
Note: DataGate is not a high-capacity IP router, but will handle moderate volumes of packet data (up to 30 packets per second).
DataHost is an optional program that can be used by clients to connect to the DataGate server, providing extensive tracking and reports options.
DataHost is fully integrated with the following mapping programs: Microsoft MapPoint, Google Maps, Google Earth, Bing and other mapping programs such as Streets-on-a-Disk and ESRI-GIS. DataHost can also provide KML and NMEA GPS outputs for marine chart-plotters and third-party development.
Unlike the majority of ASP Web based AVL-GPS vehicle tracking services, where a third-party hosts the data, DataHost stores all historical data on the client’s computer, providing security and rapid access to historical reports.
DataHost connects to DataGate over the Internet, Intranet or local LAN, using either a direct TCP/IP connection, or HTTP if required to pass over a Proxy server.
The above diagram outlines the various network routing and storage options
WebLink is an HTTP/HTTPS server built in to the DataGate server, allowing clients to connect to DataGate using any web browser. It is fully self-contained, and provides mapping, two-way control and messaging features.
Although WebLink does not offer as many features as the DataHost software, it is ideally suited for clients who want to easily check the location of their vehicles or vessels from any computer connected to the internet.
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. At the base end DataGATE routes 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. As an example, A Mini-Laptop or tablet-PC can be connected to a Kenwood Mobile Radio (data port) to provide GPS tracking, mapping and two-way text messaging with a dispatch desk.
Mobius is compatible with most wireless networks listed here. For dual network operation other modems can be attached via the serial COM ports to work over the following networks.
IRIDIUM….. GSM-GPRS…..CDMA 1xRTT…NEXEDGE… VHF-UHF networks and WiFi.
Source programs are “add-on” software modules developed by Datalink which allows DataGate to connect to the various wireless network gateways.
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.
The purpose and goal of the SATMATE product line is to provide an affordable all-in-one communication and tracking device, suitable for both land and marine markets. Truly the next generation in satellite systems, all SATMATE devices are ideally positioned to offer more features than your standard satellite product in the market.
The SATMATE i30 is a next generation advanced tracking product, offering a completely integrated solution. With everything you need inside the box, just power it up and you are away! With in-built intelligence and multiple communications options (Iridium SBD, GPRS, WiFi), this product can seamlessly adapt to any application you put in front of it.

DataGate will integrate with a range of 3rd. Party hardware. Datalink can also provide hardware design services for companies that wish to use our DataNET software but do not have “in house” design capabilities.
This includes fixed location systems for SCADA/Telemetry applications and mobile type systems for GPS tracking, text messaging, sensor monitoring and file transfers.
All compatible hardware is sourced directly from the manufacturer or distributor. Datalink does not normally resell hardware as this just adds an extra level with the related costs. Datalink will provide 3rd party contact details when required.
Low cost “black box” GPS tracking.
Featuring quad-band GSM/GPRS connectivity, the Enfora MT-Gu merges the power of the MT-G event tracking application in a compact unit intended for stand-alone operation with next generation (2.5G) wireless data and GPS location awareness.
The MT-Gu supports three dedicated I/O, 3-wire serial interface, power and audio through a 12-pin Wago connector. GPS data is made available on-board the MT-Gu for transmission to a regional DataGate operations center.

The iMDT-2000 will connect to the Tracker i50 for satellite and NEXEDGE operation. It is also available with internal GSM-GPRS modem.
The iMDT-2000 will also connect to the Lone Worker safety system and other devices.
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.
Garmin nuvi units will work with
Enfora and i50B Tracker units
The power of the DataNET software allows the dispatcher to select a destination point on a map and to transmit the location over a cellular or satellite 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, including current ETA.

Our DataGate IP routing software is also available with encryption to the AES-256 standard which is used by the Military and other Government Agencies where the utmost security of transmission is required. The DataGate-256 has been in use by the U.S. Dept of Justice for over two years and is also in use by the U.K. Government.
Compatible AES-256 hardware includes the Tracker i50-265 and optional accessories, Pinpoint-256 and Mobius software for portable Laptops and Tablet PCs.
The Grace 500 is a compact two-way UHF device which links to a mating transceiver in the Tracker i50-256. Range can be up to two Km line of sight.
The Tracker i50-256 offers extensive encrypted communications with multiple “add-on” devices. More information on the i50 series can be found elsewhere in this Power Point.
The Grace T-Pass series of wireless safety monitoring devices provides two-way data communications between workers and their vehicles.
The information is then relayed over satellite, cellular or mobile radio channels to the base monitoring software.If the worker collapses or is incapacitated the unit will automatically send an emergency alert to the base monitoring control.
Workers can be up to 2 Km from their vehicle ( line of sight) and still be in communication with the base office or monitoring desk.

Works over Globalstar Simplex network
Mobile Asset Tracking!
AXTracker MMT’s simplex operation replaces the need for costly, complicated and power-consuming two-way communications devices on those assets that only require one-way communication. The MMT’s low profile and stealth design allows it to be easily installed without the need for harnesses,
external power or antennas.
AXTracker MMT’s 2.4 GHz Radio capabilities allow your customers to extract form data and update firmware on the device or a group of devices using a wireless laptop or PDA handheld device. This technology also allows data to be transmitted to RF Gateways in the yard or at security checkpoints.
Up to seven year battery life, based on report frequency.
Works over Globalstar’s Simplex Satellite network.
PlexGate is an “add-on” external program for DataGate. Globalstar allows remote Simplex devices to report to only one host address (IP+Port) and one “back-up” address. This can be a limiting factor from a Globalstar VAR’s marketing standpoint.
Regional wireless data resellers who are not appointed Globalstar VARs should have the ability to sell Simplex products and supporting Software. PlexGate will allow the regional VAR to re-route Simplex data to a Reseller’s DataGate or a reseller’s corporate customer’s DataGate who wants complete control under their own I.T. department.
PlexGate overcomes this marketing restriction by acting as an IP data switch, allowing multiple DataGates to receive data from simplex devices.
As an example, an authorized Simplex VAR who may also be running a DataGate hub service could install a PlexGate switch in their server. This would allow specific Simplex devices to pass through the VAR’s server to other sub-dealers, Government Agencies or other “end users” who want to operate their own DataGate for security reasons.
It is now possible to send email messages from any standard email client to remote Kenwood NEXEDGE radios via the Internet. DataGate processes the email and routes them over the NEXEDGE network.
