Joins Global M2M leaders in launching non-profit trade association for advancing the business value of global machine communication and the Internet-of-Things service delivery
Alpharetta, Ga. and LAS VEGAS-CTIA 2013 - May 21, 2013-KORE Telematics, the world's largest wireless services provider specializing in machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, today announced it has been selected to join the International M2M Council, which launches this week at CTIA 2013. KORE rounds out the list of founding members along with Deutsche Telekom, Digi, Huawei, Oracle, ORBCOMM and Telit. With the launch of the Council, KORE President and COO Alex Brisbourne will join its Board of Governors.
“We are excited to welcome KORE Telematics as an initial member of the IMC and look forward to putting the company’s long-standing expertise in M2M on display for the market,” said Keith Kreisher, executive director of IMC. “The KORE suite of global device connectivity offerings is a natural fit with our mission to help adopters build and deploy end-to-end M2M and Internet-of-Things solutions with fewer associated time, cost and risk parameters.”
IMC aims to promote the business value of M2M across key vertical markets including automotive, logistics, energy, healthcare and public infrastructure – to make the benefits more visible to users and new adopters. The council will be dedicated to easing integration, reducing total cost of ownership and improving speed-to-market for M2M services via periodic benchmarking studies, deployment case studies, focus groups and standards building.
“The M2M service delivery chain has become considerably crowded over the past few years,” said Alex Brisbourne, president and COO, KORE Telematics. “The multiplicity of components and parties — a collection of many niche businesses, really — can make it difficult for even the most astute business to navigate through an entire M2M solution, end to end. We recognize the need to simplify as an industry, and are proud to join with a high-quality, diverse group of providers to help adopters achieve quicker time to services and profitability.”
KORE will be demonstrating its M2M connectivity and platform offerings at CTIA 2013 in Las Vegas. Please visit the KORE Booth No. 4934 for more information about the International M2M Council and the burgeoning market opportunity for M2M.
