Across a wide range of applications, from vehicle tracking to home security, an emerging delivery of smart metering and energy management solutions, and expansion in wireless payment services, KORE Wireless service providers are rapidly migrating to digital PCS networks, and the platform of choice is increasingly the KORE services, which have been designed with a 100% focus on M2M service delivery, with fast time-to-market and reliable service delivery supporting new customers as well as those migrating from older, proprietary digital or analog solutions. We are very pleased by the positive market reaction to our new KORE USA service, based on the Cingular network" noted Alex Brisbourne, president and chief operating officer of KORE Wireless.
"Since its limited commercial availability launch, we have received strong demand from our service provider partners, evidenced by the results to date. With the completion of the latest release of integrated, real-time tools under our PRISM™ platform, the new KORE USA network services are fully controlled, 24/7, by our partners for their applications. This we believe will drive even faster adoption in the years ahead", concluded Brisbourne.
