GPS Hardware Manufacturers Top 10 is the ranking that features the most popular manufacturers of telematics and IoT devices. Every year, it includes only ten companies whose products were connected to Wialon most frequently over the previous 12 months.
For hardware manufacturers, getting into the top 10 is not only recognition within the Wialon community, but also an indicator of the company’s success in the global telematics market. For service providers, our ranking, in turn, is a practical tool when searching for suppliers, as well as one of the ways to track the dynamics of the GPS hardware market development.
Let’s finally meet the leaders of the 2023 ranking!
