M2M-Optimized CDMA Network Services Now Available for Application Service Providers to Deliver High-Bandwidth Applications
Herndon, VA and Toronto, ON — April 1, 2008—KORE Telematics (www.koretelematics.com), North America's largest independent provider of digital wireless services for the machine-to-machine (M2M), telematics and telemetry markets, today announced the commercial availability of CDMA 1xRTT and EV-DO wireless network services. KORE is now providing application service providers (ASPs) and developers with access to an extensive CDMA network to power today's leading M2M applications with wireless data, voice and video services.
By offering M2M wireless services on America's most reliable CDMA network, KORE will provide its ASP partners in the utility, government, fleet management and security industries with the ability to offer more powerful, feature-rich M2M applications that need to take advantage of higher bandwidth services. KORE ASP partners can now integrate these high-bandwidth data, voice and video services for applications such as video surveillance, mobile advertising, billboard services, surveillance and rich content delivery to differentiate existing and new service offerings. Several leading KORE partners participated in early testing to expand their capabilities and provide customers with more consistent, reliable services and tailored pricing models to meet specific vertical market needs.
"In order to effectively expand the capabilities of our GPS devices, we needed to partner with a wireless provider that could offer GSM and CDMA services, as both are necessary for reliable delivery of more powerful, higher-bandwidth features," said John Bjorn, president, Vericom Technologies, a leading provider of GPS solutions that enable businesses to more efficiently manage mobile workforces. "KORE is the only M2M network provider that offers CDMA and GSM wireless services, giving us real-time control through an integrated management console and helping us more efficiently manage our network usage to ensure customer satisfaction and reduce costs."
"M2M application service providers requiring CDMA wireless services have very limited choice among today's M2M network operators," said Alex Brisbourne, president and chief operating officer, KORE Telematics. "By offering M2M optimized data and voice services through direct connect relationships with North America's most extensive and reliable CDMA and GSM networks, KORE is providing its ASP partners with the most widespread, cost-effective, high and low bandwidth wireless services in the M2M industry. KORE is dedicated to helping its ASP partners further extend the capabilities of their M2M applications to better service customers across a number of leading vertical industries, including government, utilities and security."
With comprehensive coverage throughout North America, KORE supports 2.5G 1xRTT and 3G EV-DO services for high throughput with real-time provisioning and activation. Simply, KORE gives its high bandwidth partners a more cost-efficient method to deliver their industry leading M2M applications. With the KORE network, ASP partners pay for only the wireless services they use. For instance, KORE is able to bring CDMA wireless network services to market at a price-point for ultra-high device use needs, at less than $100 for half a gigabyte of usage per month.
KORE will be demonstrating the power of its M2M wireless network at booth #5427 at the CTIA WIRELESS 2008 show, taking place at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas from April 1 – 3, 2008, and at booth #812 at the FOSE Conference and Exposition, taking place at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. from April 1 – 3, 2008.
