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.
