Whats so cool about Personal GPS Server?
Before we dwelve into Personal GPS Server, let’s walk thru on GPS tracker and GPS Server.
Note: GPS Navigator and GPS Tracker are not one and same, though they use same technology.
GPS tracker device:
This GPS device is from the company called Teltonika (from Lithuania). One among the most popular GPS companies in the world.
The GPS tracker contains a SIM card and it communicates with the GPS Server via GPRS. So when there is no mobile network , the GPS device stores the data and uploads to the GPS server once it gets into the network. Communication frequency between the GPS tracker and Server is once in 10 seconds. It is modifiable in most of the GPS devices. But for all practical purposes , once in 10 seconds is more than enough.
The data communicated between GPS tracker device and GPS Server typically contains latitude, longitude, time, speed, altitude etc.
A GPS Server is nothing but a TCP or UDP server. Off late GPS devices started communicating http also, lets not bother about it in this article.
The GPS Server receives data from GPS tracker device every 10 seconds and stores the data in a DB.
The GPS mobile app or web application gets the data from DB via http rest services and displays it in the map using google map services.
The GPS Server is usually located in a data center (public cloud like Amazon AWS, Google App Engine, DigitalOcean or Linode) or in a private cloud.
- A static public IP address (GPS tracker should be able to reach this IP address from any where in the world)
- Fire wall configured to allow only required ports.
- Scalable SQL/NoSql database.
- TCP or UDP Server
Today there are many GPS Servers available across the world. But each of one the server requires public cloud or private cloud for it to work. Also setting up a private cloud GPS Server is 10 to 20 times more costly, if the need is to track just 50 -100 vehicles.
So all your critical tracking data are stored in public cloud and your dealer has full access to it whether you like it or not.
VAMO SYSTEMS solves this problem. Our personal GPS Server can be setup in office or home with your existing broadband connection and at very affordable cost in just 10 minutes!. And it supports all popular GPS devices like Teltonika , Concox etc.
Don’t let your critical data go out of your office
For high volume customers (from 1000 gps units to millions of gps units) ,we provide dedicated servers which can be setup in private cloud or in public cloud.
In cost perspective it works cheaper than any other mode. There are no recurring monthly or yearly subscription charges. If customer requires online backup we provide the same for additional cost. Also we provide disaster recovery/business continuity plan in case of any power or internet failures at customer end for additional cost.
