Ultracom and Telia cooperate to create new hunting experience

Thanks to the collaboration of Ultracom and Telia the collar is easy to use and provides reliable real-time positioning both in Finland and abroad.

“When out hunting and tracking prey, dogs move over long distances away from the owner. Thanks to the Ultracom R10 tracking collar, which we developed in collaboration with hunters and Telia, positioning of dogs is no longer a challenge during hunting trips. One of the main features of R10 is easy to use and eforthless set up of the system. ” says Henry Paasikivi, Managing Director of Ultracom.

“Telia now offers a ready-to-use set for hunters, for use on hunting trips both in Finland and abroad. The collar is easy to set up because it comes pre-installed with a global SIM card, providing extensive coverage in Telia’s network and works well also in shadow areas that may be encountered,” says Business Manager Satu Rissanen from Telia, who was involved in the product development process.
