DALLAS, Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, at the Great American Trucking Show, Rand McNally announced that its HD 100 device, selected as a "Top 20 Products of 2013" by Heavy Duty Trucking (HDT) magazine, is now shipping with software that adds compliant E-Logs to tablets, smart phones, and Rand McNally's IntelliRoute® TND™ GPS devices+. Depending upon the service plan selected, the HD 100 can also turn those devices into fully functional mobile fleet management solutions.
The HD 100, a small black box about the size of a deck of cards, plugs into a truck's on-board diagnostic port and records the truck's GPS position along with critical vehicle-specific information and driving behavior.
Called a "game changer" by industry observers*, the device provides electronic Hours of Service (HOS) recording, vehicle inspection reporting, text- and dispatch-integrated messaging, plus driver performance monitoring capabilities. Features are dependent upon the service plan selected.**
"The HD 100 is a highly effective, affordable solution for providing compliant electronic Hours of Service logs well in advance of the federal E-Log mandate," said Stephen Fletcher, CEO of Rand McNally. "With the new all-platform capabilities of the HD 100, drivers and fleets can leverage the technology they already have – be it a TND™ device or tablet or smart phone."
The HD 100 is available at Travel Centers of America (TA) and other fine retailers and online stores at a price of $299, including six months of service**. The HD 100 all-platform is on display at the Great American Trucking Show this week in booth #16112.

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impac...

As the world moves from DevOps to NoOps, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler. However, applications have been architected with a much tighter coupling than it needs to be which makes deployment in different environments and migration between them harder. The microservices architecture, which is the basis of many new age distributed systems such as OpenStack, Netflix and so on is at the heart of CloudFoundry – a complete developer-oriented Platform as a Service (PaaS...

You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. But what about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today's databases are anything but agile - they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application an...
