U.S.-based mobile network operator, Aspenta, has announced m2mConnect and nSIM, two new global technologies, are expected to redefine machine-to-machine (M2M) communications.
In addition to providing manufacturers one global SIM, the newest offerings also provide the advantage of one contract and one support channel. It’s possible to develop an accessible connectivity platform – anytime, anywhere – thanks to the advantage of one SIM, one contract and one support channel, according to company officials.
Moreover, it is expected that the two innovations will reduce the costs of the international M2M channel.
Atlanta-based Aspenta aims to innovate and improve wireless technology for consumers and big businesses. Dr. Walid Moneimne, CEO at Aspenta, said the company’s technology “significantly” reduces roaming charges, so manufacturers can implement M2M connectivity far more easily.
They can create new revenue sources by providing new services to customers, and cut costs by making operations more efficient, he said. Savings can be large enough to change entirely what a manufacturer or service provider is able to offer.
“M2M is now finally a realistic option across the globe.”
The complete connectivity demands of manufacturers are managed by the company, including conception and execution, according to company officials.
In addition, Los Angeles-based GlobaTrac is one of the first companies to use m2mConnect. The small Trakdot Luggage device of this newest offering fits into a checked bag and in real time provides information about the city location. The report is sent to any mobile, Apple, Android (News - Alert) or SMS-capable device.
It also provides the benefit of Bluetooth notification when a bag reaches the luggage belt.
“Aspenta’s technology allows us to offer our consumers products at a reasonable price,” said Harry Steck, CEO at Trakdot, adding that it has been a key component in developing what is essentially a whole new category of device.
“We get accurate and reliable data, such as location, and so our users know where their luggage ends up, no matter which country in the world – with notification by SMS, e-mail or Web,” he said.
