Trax, one of the smallest real-time GPS trackers on the market, enables users to track their loved ones around the world.
Trax is a tiny GPS tracker which makes it possible for users to locate their children and pets at any time and from anywhere.
Most parents have experienced that feeling of fear when a young child wanders off at the playground or disappears during a trip to the supermarket. Pet owners have similar concerns making sure their pets are where they’re supposed to be. With Trax, a tiny and smart GPS tracker, parents and pet owners can monitor their loved ones in real-time from almost anywhere through an intuitive app.
In the summer of 2012, a small group of Swedish entrepreneurs started working on a project that would give parents and pet owners the ability to keep better track of their loved ones. After months of hard work, the new company Wonder Technology Solutions (WTS), had developed Trax, one of the smallest real-time GPS trackers on the market, in both size and weight. The smart device and application made it possible for users to locate their children and pets at any time and from anywhere. Trax combines advanced GPS and sensor fusion technology to provide indoor navigation capabilities and more precise, real-time outdoor tracking.
Designed for smartphones, mobile devices, and computers, Trax enables parents and pet owners to stay connected with loved ones at playgrounds, malls, schools, amusement parks, walking trails, and just about any other place. Trax includes smart technology that sends push alerts when a child or a pet leaves a designated area, if the battery is low, or if the device is dropped or exceeds a pre-determined speed. The Trax GPS tracker can be located through a free app that features real-time tracking, safe zones, and augmented reality. The app is available in seven different languages and also allows for unlimited and time-scheduled safe zones.
Telenor Connexion set up a Managed Connectivity solution for WTS. With this in place the company could successfully launch, manage, and monetize their tracker. The solution automates the delivery and management of mobile services to the Trax devices.
By partnering with Telenor Connexion, WTS could take advantage of Telenor’s integrated SIM card, which is one the smallest on the market. This enables Trax to be small enough to fit on a dog’s collar without being disturbing.
The solution offered matched the needs of WTS with small but many data sessions every month, as well as the outstanding multi-operator agreement.
Telenor Connexion offered a service solution that no other supplier could provide. That, combined with their very small eSIM cards, and their flexibility and understanding for us as a startup company, have made them the perfect partner for us.Fredrik Danelius, CEO and Co-founder of WTS
Another benefit of the Managed Connectivity solution is that WTS can easily scale their operations as the company expands into new markets with new products.
By working closely together with WTS, we help them find new ways of how they can deliver to their customers all around the world, while at the same time keeping the price level low for the end-user.Thomas Strandin, Account Manager at Telenor Connexion
Trax has been launched in 33 countries around the world. Through the partnership with Telenor Connexion, Trax owners are able to use their devices in all of these markets without having to worry about extra roaming costs.
There are more than twice as many pets in Europe and North America as there are children aged 0–18 years old.
Most pet owners are very passionate about their animals and consider them as part of the family.
