SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Wireless, Inc. (Nasdaq: NVTL), a leading provider of intelligent
wireless networking solutions, today announced that in collaboration
Irrigate and Mesh
Systems, it has been selected as a value chain award winner in the
Agriculture and Consumer Packaged Goods categories of the 2013 Connected
Chain Awards, highlighting Novatel Wireless' M2M
Leveraging Novatel Wireless' integrated M2M products, Net Irrigate, a
manufacturer of Wireless Agricultural Irrigation Monitoring (WAIM)
technology, created an M2M solution that enables farmers to minimize
operational costs by eliminating the need for onsite monitoring and
control of irrigation equipment. Receiving a new level of security and
tracking for irrigation systems, farmers indicate a return on initial
investment usually occurs within the first few months of operation.
For the gold award in the Consumer Packaged Goods category, Novatel
Wireless provides its Enabler HS 3001 CDMA module to Mesh Systems'
gateway, which is a part of an interactive trade system from Anheuser
Busch Inbev. The solution leverages cloud technologies to provide
retailers with a POS (point-of-sale) system within each retail account
that will activate based on sporting events, weather conditions, or
current events. A cellular gateway even allows text notifications to be
sent directly to consumers' phones.
The Value Chain Awards honor the most successful corporate adopters of
M2M technology and the solution providers that made their success
possible. The awards recognize the process of combining multiple
technologies such as device-connectivity hardware, radio modules,
network service and provisioning, as well as application software and
infrastructure, to create a winning solution for the end customer.
"Recognition in Connected World's Value Chain awards highlights Novatel
Wireless' transformational contributions to the M2M market, benefiting
all types of organizations looking for innovative ways to grow," said
Joe Peterson, VP of Worldwide Sales for Novatel Wireless. "We're excited
about our collaboration with Net Irrigate and Mesh Systems and committed
to offering the most advanced M2M solutions in the market."
