  Leading M2M Application Developers Leverage KORE Network   Platform and Rich Library of Approved Devices to Accelerate   Time-to-Market and Innovation


Atlanta, GA—July 13, 2010—KORE   Telematics, the world's largest digital wireless services provider   specializing in machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, today announced   that more than 500 unique M2M devices now thrive on its network. With a   comprehensive pool of approved, tested and high-availability devices at   their disposal, KORE application service provider (ASP) partners are   able to bring innovative M2M applications to market more quickly than   ever.
 
  By providing more device and network options than any network   provider in the industry, KORE gives its partners the power to choose   the specific device that meets the exacting requirements of any M2M   application. For instance, devices can be matched to selection criteria   such as network support (GSM or CDMA), physical size, weight, battery   life, cost and a number of additional performance characteristics.
 
  In the past 12 months, KORE has added support for 63 new   devices, with growing demand in vertical industries such as telehealth,   payment processing and utilities. In 2009, more than 20 percent of the   company's net device additions came from health-related applications.
 
  "Offering the widest selection of both GSM and CDMA devices is   essential to getting our partners' M2M applications to market as quickly   as possible," said Alex Brisbourne, president and COO, KORE Telematics.   "It is quite simple, really. Pre-approved devices eliminate the time   and cost demands associated with bringing new end-use scenarios on line,   so that our partners can focus exclusively on developing the M2M   applications that will reduce more costs, improve more lives and produce   more top-line growth. KORE achieved this important milestone through   ongoing investment in accelerated testing and certification processes   across both GSM and CDMA product portfolios."
 
  KORE Telematics supports an extensive pool of devices, all   offered on the M2M industry's most reliable and ubiquitous IP network.   KORE supports 341 GSM devices across 95 vendors, including Cinterion,   Sierra Wireless, Enfora and Telit, as well as 197 CDMA devices from 42   vendors, including Sierra Wireless, BlueTree, Calamp and Novatel. This   includes nine devices in the telehealth market, 14 devices in the   payment processing market and 15 devices in the utilities industry.
