Telit Partners with Boatrax to Create a First-of-its-kind Smart IoT Boat Monitoring Solution

Boatrax is making life better for boat owners and enabling real-time monitoring at the 2019 Miami International Boat Show

London, February 14, 2019 – Telit, a global Internet of Things (IoT) enabler, today
announced its successful partnership with the vessel tracking company Boatrax. With Telit’s
deviceWISE IoT Platform and cellular IoT communication modules, the Miami, Florida-based
company created the Boatrax Box, a first-of-its kind monitoring and diagnostic solution that
aggregates important data about boat performance and owner behavior in real-time.

Launched in October 2018, the Boatrax Box brings boat owners peace of mind with a smart boat experience that gets smarter the more it is used. With proprietary algorithms that adapt to the boat operator’s behaviors, it delivers critical information such as location, predictive maintenance alerts and engine diagnostics to ensure top efficiency. Engineered with the MultiTech SocketModem Cell that leverages Telit’s XE910 family of modules, the Boatrax Box is easy to mount and simple to use, while delivering the most comprehensive set of connectivity features in a compact form factor.

“Creating the Boatrax Box was born out of a need for effectiveness and simplicity. During the
prototype stage, it was clear we needed an IoT technology partner with device-side
capabilities and expertise,’’ said Arturo Malave, CEO and Co-founder, Boatrax. “Telit not
only enabled us to design a cloud-based plug-and-play solution that allows owners to
monitor and protect their boats remotely but also reduced our time to market.”

“Partnerships are key for providing businesses with best-of-breed IoT solutions that meet
their unique needs and goals. With Telit’s technology, Boatrax has a number of different
communications networks to pick from, now and in the future—a key characteristic for a
tracking solution meant to be mounted on something as mobile as a boat,” said Dennis Kelly,
Senior Vice President Sales, Americas, Telit. “It also allows Boatrax to focus on their core
competency and powerful differentiator of delivering end-user value.’’

Boatrax will be on hand to demonstrate the capabilities of the Boatrax Box at the Miami
International Boat Show, which takes place February 14-18, 2019, at the Miami Marine
Stadium Park & Basin, Virginia Key, Florida. A live demonstration will be in tent C, booth
