Enfora (News - Alert) today announced that its mobile tracking platform will be used to increase the transportation “efficiency, safety and manageability” for visiting dignitaries, volunteers and spectators during the Beijing Olympic Games.
The company, working with its partner RCG China, a subsidiary of RCG Holdings, has provided the core communications technology supporting an end-to-end mobile tracking application.
According to Enfora officials, the tracking application helps surveillance and location based services with various leased vehicles, city taxis and the Audi vehicles used during the Games.

Enfora officials said that the family is a type approved quad-band GSM/GPRS mobile tracking platform, and the devices sit at the network edge and include integrated GPS capabilities.
The MT-uL is a GSM/GPRS and GPS compact mobile tracking platform with 7-40 Vdc input, rechargeable Li-Ion battery and 3 dedicated I/O.
