FAYETTEVILLE, NC - The City of Fayetteville, N.C. is implementing a GPS tracking system in 218 of its public works vehicles. 

For Fayetteville’s Public Safety Department, which includes Police and Fire service, Mentor will be installing the Mentor BBX in their 218-vehicle fleet. Fayetteville is also implementing a software solution for its fixed-route and paratransit systems.

Mentor BBX is a stand-alone Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) and vehicle telematics collection device. BBX provides vehicle tracking with its integrated GPS receiver. The Mentor Fleet software is a mobile field services management solution that allows office staff for the City of Fayetteville to view the current location of all their Public Safety vehicles on a real-time map.

Fayetteville will be using the Mentor Streets Transit software suite, which is integrated with Fayetteville’s existing Trapeze NOVUS web-enabled solution for their demand response operations.

The City of Fayetteville will also be using Mentor’s XMobile Management (XMM) software for their Mobile Device Management (MDM) needs. Using XMM, all of Fayetteville’s Over-the-air programming (OTAP) will be done using the EVDO network from Verizon Wireless. This replaces allows for automatic updates to the devices in the fleet's vehicles.
