GPS Fence Technology
If you are looking for a way to contain your large dog and are interested in learning more about GPS dog fence technology – how it works and why some claim it is even better than traditional wireless dog fences – then you are in the right place!
In the video below, I interview the Chief Technologist and INVENTOR of GPS fence technology himself, Sung Vivathana, the Vice President of Engineering at SpotOn GPS Fence.
Sung has 20 years of experience in the design of mission-critical electro-optical systems for defense, telecommunications, and consumer electronics.
He led the invention, development, and launch of SpotOn GPS Fence and holds 6 patents covering GPS-based pet containment and tracking.
Sung has a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) from Widener University, an MBA from the University of New Hampshire, and EE graduate coursework at Purdue University.
In our fascinating hour-long interview, I asked Sung the most frequently asked questions I have received about GPS dog fence technology to learn what truly sets SpotOn GPS Fence apart from other pet containment options on the market.
While I absolutely believe you need to watch the entire interview, I certainly understand the delicate balance of limited time. For that reason, I am providing the list of questions I asked below and have them as time stamps, or chapters, in the video for your convenience.
And if you haven’t done so already, I encourage you to read the short story about how SpotOn GPS Fence got started and the mission behind this small, but mighty USA-based pet tech company.
