The LHP Telematics Mixed Fleet Data Broker is a set of middleware services that handle all communication with units in the field. The service is protocol adaptable, which allows us to support not only the LHPT binary protocol used in our embedded application, but also the large variety of protocols that the various hardware manufacturers have created or support. The goal of the Data Broker is to:
