EMERSON, N.J., July 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Micronet Ltd., a subsidiary of Micronet Enertec Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MICT), announced today that its recently launched A-300 – Android based rugged tablet was selected by a leading North American solution provider in the Fleet Management industry. The A-300 tablet will be installed in large commercial fleets providing a comprehensive Fleet Management and Mobile Resource Management solution.

In addition, the new A-300 series features Micronet’s new patent-pending Guardian System Design (GSD), a solution that enables cloud based remote technical support and in-field device management over the life time of the product. Key functions include:
- Remote device management
- Software and hardware self-diagnostics and recovery
- Fail-safe Firmware and Application Over the Air (OTA) updates
This is a SaaS offering that Micronet is implementing, based on a recurring revenue business model.
As all other Micronet products, the A-300 is a fully programmable mobile computer, enabling independent application development, using Micronet’s comprehensive hardware and software development toolkits. The tablet’s advanced system architecture allows flexible integration with various vehicle systems and ancillary equipment used by drivers in and out of the cabin.
Micronet’s CEO Rafi Katz commented: “As a company that focuses on innovation derived from our clients’ evolving needs, we’re proud to announce a first new client, shortly after the introduction of our new Android based product.
