Novatel Wireless Deploys NovaCore Software Developers Kit Available through New Online Developers' Lounge
SAN FRANCISCO, Sep 09, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Novatel Wireless(TM) Inc. (Nasdaq:NVTL), a leading provider of wireless broadband solutions, today announced the release of NovaCore(TM), a new software developer kit (SDK) designed to promote the development of additional value-added applications and services for Novatel Wireless devices.
Novatel Wireless engineered NovaCore to enable the development of specialized software applications including location based services (LBS), connectivity management, device personalization, local time management, roaming, data protection, multiple device support and a variety of additional interfaces. NovaCore facilitates concurrent application access and increased stability over previous SDK editions, with less development complexity for new products and a reduced memory footprint.
The new NovaCore SDK is Web 2.0 ready. Its unique design lets a software developer write an application once that will run on Windows, Mac and Linux, extending their marketing reach and simplifying development projects. It is one of the few industry SDKs that supports both EVDO and HSPA 3G connections, accomplished through one application programming interface (API). NovaCore is also backwards compatible with the Novatel Phoenix SDK, easing the transition for legacy applications. The new SDK includes enhanced documentation and sample code to streamline development and significantly speed up time to market for the applications developed.
Trellia Networks, Inc., is the first developer to use the NovaCore SDK with its Trellia Mobility Platform, which provides seamless mobility to the enterprise. "The combined platform of Novatel's hardware and new NovaCore SDK proved to be instrumental in the rapid development of our latest enterprise mobility software solutions," said Giovanni Forte, CEO of Trellia Networks. "The ability to move quickly from concept to implementation gives us a significant advantage in this highly competitive space."
As part of today's news, Novatel announced the availability of the Developers' Lounge, a Web-based suite of tools where software developers can access the SDK and a monitored support forum to post questions and find answers from both Novatel engineers and the development community. Developers will be able to download additional applications and source code and make their applications available for download from the site.
"The upgrades delivered in the new NovaCore SDK will allow for unlimited possibilities in the development of new software applications and services for the Novatel platform," said Brad Weinert, president of Novatel Wireless. "This deployment reinforces our commitment to innovation and collaboration in developing the world's most advanced mobile broadband solutions."
