The Port-IT® is Based on ComROAD’s Global Transport Telematic System (GTTS), Port-IT® enables global positioning, wireless, mobile data communication as well as “MyPort-IT.com”, a personalized online portal providing fully individual configuration of all kinds of web-based information. As a result of the co-operation between Comwoxx and another two US-based telematics providers, iFleet, Inc. (telematic services) and i3 Mobile (content), Port-IT integrates a wide range of security, road assistance, emergency and local (traffic) information services into its capacity portfolio.
The telematic system is complemented by Clear Voice Capture (CVC), a novel technology owned by the recently contracted Clarity LLC that offers the optimization of voice-driven telematic applications and the extraction of interfering background noise in vehicle applications. With more than 120,000 visitors from 120 countries and more than 2,000 exhibitors, CES is the world’s biggest trade show for consumer electronics technologies. Against the background of a 60% US-share in the global PDA market and the worldwide growing network of mobile end units, wireless data communication solutions and internet access were amongst the hot topics at this year’s show. The telematic system presented by ComROAD and Comworxx thus very much followed the trend of the CES; Port-IT’s broad level of functionality attracted a large number of industrial visitors as well as notable car manufacturers and telecommunications providers from Germany.
