TEXA renews agreement for use of Interoute’s network and cloud services
Automotive diagnostics provider TEXA has renewed its agreement with cloud services provider Interoute, with the latter continuing to serve as ICT provider.
TEXA’s product range comprises remote diagnostic tools for trucks, cars, motorcycles, agricultural vehicles and marine engines. TEXA’s TEXA MOBILE Diagnostic (TMD), a small box enabled with GPS and GSM/GPRS, is utilised to locate vehicles, exchange real time information with drivers, as well as monitor components and electronic systems remotely.
The company has also launched another patented device called TEXA CARe, which can be installed in a vehicle’s On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) socket. The device facilitates personal safety by contacting a 24 hour operations centre in case of an accident while also facilitating communication between drivers and workshops in real time about vehicle faults and malfunctions.
Interoute provides TEXA with low latency, private connectivity through an international MPLS VPN between the company’s headquarters, its foreign branches in Poland, Spain, France, UK, Germany, Brazil, USA, Russia, Japan as well as to many distribution centres across Europe and US. TEXA also makes use of a flexible, scalable Interoute Virtual Data Centre cloud computing resource.
TEXA CARe is currently available in Italy and is set to be rolled out in other European markets soon. TEXA is looking to cater to future diagnostic requirements with regard to the spread of hybrid, electric and fuel cells.
