Since some time, a lot of peplink products already allow to act as a GPS server, using & serving NMEA messages collected from the internal GPS chip.
In our usecase however, the Pepwave unit is inside a moving ship, with our own equipment being mounted outdoors (which also has the ability to act as a GPS server using TCP)
In this case, it would be very nice to configure the Pepwave device to not get it’s GPS input from the on-board receiver, but from another TCP source.
- Today, the only GPS source is the unit’s internal GPS chip
- Allow to specifiy another source to fetch GPS NMEA data. (TCP, specifying IP + Port)
- Still allow to locally acts as a GPS server by forwarding/converting the received sentences
