KORE will work with CDG to promote CDMA2000® technology for M2M solutions.

KORE already has numerous CDMA-based M2M devices deployed throughout North America across more than 60 customers.

KORE is committed to participating in CDG M2M SIG sub-groups such as the Industry Awareness group, the Module Testing & Certification group, the Application Development/Middleware group and the System Architecture/Planning group.

“CDMA is a key technology in a number of emerging M2M markets, including utilities, healthcare, payment processing and AVL/fleet tracking,” said Alex Brisbourne, president and COO of KORE Telematics. “As an operator member of the CDG, KORE will assist in promoting CDMA2000 as a suitable technology for M2M solutions. Using CDMA, application developers can build robust M2M solutions with low data costs and expanded regions of coverage.”
