CTIA 2013 – Booth # 5734
RALEIGH, N.C. , USA – May 14, 2013 – Telit Wireless Solutions, a leading global provider of high-quality machine-to-machine (M2M) modules, services and solutions, today announced a fast-track expansion of its m2mAIR service offerings in North America, in response to market demand for solutions to streamline deployment of M2M connected devices and applications. Leveraging relationships with mobile carriers and other wireless service providers by both Telit and recently acquired CrossBridge Solutions, Telit looks to expand m2mAIR services horizontally across application segments as well as vertically with enhanced customer support, access services, wireless management, security and cost control. The company will highlight the m2mAIR North America services at CTIA 2013TM-THE Mobile Marketplace, May 21-23, 2013 at the Sands Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada – Booth 5734.
Access services are critical in M2M deployments. m2mAIR’s North American portfolio includes a comprehensive suite of network services that cover all your M2M needs including wireless carrier connectivity, flexible rate plans, performance monitoring, and 24 x 7 customer support. In North America, m2mAIR wireless access services include private and secure offerings for CDMA, GSM and satellite technologies.
Because management of the remote M2M connected device is critical for a successful deployment, m2mAIR offers an individually customizable state-of-the-art, web-based e-Portal from where account holders can provision devices, take advantage of full API functionality, manage data traffic consumption, manage user profiles, and maintain network-based usage policies. The device management services help customers manage the full device life cycle with flexible management tools for optimal total-cost-of-ownership.
Responding to the needs of M2M application business plans, m2mAIR billing only starts after the subscription is put into an active state. A device can be activated and deactivated as often as necessary and will only be billed once it becomes active, ensuring maximum cost optimization and consumption alerts can be easily configured to prevent bill shocks.
Adding to Telit’s services, m2mAIR North America offers a comprehensive 24/7/365 Network Operation Center (NOC) with proactive state of the art monitoring of all M2M network services. With direct relationships with the major carriers, m2mAIR can provide wireless data services in North America including Canada and Mexico.
"I am constantly asked the question of what differentiates m2mAIR North America from other M2M service providers. For me it’s easy," said Rod Massie, general manager of m2mAIR North America’s business unit of Telit Wireless Solutions. "m2mAIR North America is the longest operating and most respected M2M wireless data provider. We have specialized in wireless M2M solutions for over 20 years. Our 24/7/365 Network Operations Center (NOC) is the only one that has operated and been solely focused on M2M network services since 1990."
"By combining module technology together with network capabilities, m2mAIR customers can now benefit from Telit’s long-standing experience in the M2M market and our One Stop Shop approach. Our technology innovation, expertise, outstanding quality and support are the best in the industry," said Mike Ueland, senior vice president and general manager of Telit Wireless Solutions North America.
Ten years on, leveraging the industry’s broadest portfolio of hardware in cellular, short range and positioning technologies, artfully complemented by services and connectivity from m2mAIR, Telit is M2M’s One Stop Shop for system integrators.
