NEXEDGE vs CELLULAR
The majority of School Districts demand one or two minute GPS tracking of School Bus routes. This article may help put aside that expectation.
Probably 95% of all GPS reports from a School Bus driving a route are redundant and meaningless as far as "real time" reporting is concerned. However to achieve that reporting rate for a 100 or more Buses requires a cellular network with its related cost per Bus.
The latest Datalink i50B-V3 with WiFi and NEXEDGE radio interface can provide important information in seconds and also store normal route GPS tracking detail for delayed download over WiFi when the Bus returns to it base.
