Trimble VRS Now Network Covers More than One Million Square Miles in North America with the Acquisition of MidStates VRS
As part of an ongoing expansion strategy, the new coverage for the VRS Now subscription service helps users in more places achieve high-accuracy positioning to increase productivity, reduce operational costs and improve safety. The correction service is ideal for professionals in agriculture, geospatial and construction as well as emerging autonomous applications including lane-keeping for passenger vehicles, Vehicle-to-Anything (V2X) position identification and unmanned aerial system guidance.
Adding 105,000 square miles of coverage, the acquisition expands Trimble's VRS Now network to be one of the largest in North America—over one million square miles, contributing to Trimble's shift toward a software, services and subscription business emphasis. When using the Trimble VRS Now service, land and construction surveyors, GIS professionals and farmers—with a Trimble or third-party commercial GNSS receiver—can leverage instant high-accuracy corrections delivered via cellular network to improve productivity. Enabling users to work without a GNSS base station, the service is cost-effective and simple to use. It is ideal for a variety of applications that require sub-inch level accuracy and is an important component of the connected construction site and connected farm workflows.
"The MidStates VRS network covers significant farmland, oil fields and rapidly developing urban areas, providing farmers and surveyors in the region with the real-time GNSS correction services they need to improve their day-to-day work," said
Trimble networks are supported by a global network operations team made up of GNSS system engineers, geodesy experts and IT professionals. The team monitors the networks 24/7 from operation centers located on three continents, providing consistent and reliable service uptime and performance integrity.
