Flash Announces Satellite Monitoring Options

Franklin, Tenn. (October 5, 2016) – In 2012, Flash learned that our MSAT satellite monitoring solution would be supported through the end of 2013. We notified our customers and started looking for alternate solutions. The MSAT solution requires specific hardware that we have been unable to source. We extended the contract with the satellite company through the end of 2017 in an attempt to extend the life of this product line. At the end of March 2017, our M2M provider will no longer support this network. This requires replacing existing units in the field.

Please contact your sales representative to discuss options for replacing your FTW MSAT before the end of March 2017.

  1. The FTW 175 3G cellular solution may have become viable.
  2. The new FTW 175 SAT satellite monitoring solution will be available this December.
