nPhase Provides Nation’s First Global M2M Wireless Connectivity Solution With Sprint PCS and Cingular
First M2M Solution Provider to Support Secure end-to-end GSM and CDMA Wireless Connectivity
nPhase, one of the nation's leading Machine to Machine (M2M) solution providers launches nPhaseDSN(TM) - secure, global, two-way connectivity through Cingular's GSM and Sprint PCS's CDMA wireless networks. This proven capability solves the problem of Dynamic IP addressing for two-way communications and allows companies that need to connect to their business assets to significantly reduce the complexity and cost associated with large volume M2M deployments."Our vision from the outset was to provide a global "one-stop-shop" for M2M solutions" says Steve Pazol, nPhase CEO. "This capability adds another critical component in support of our current and future clients' needs to obtain machine data regardless of the communications path," he adds.
"In developing and deploying large scale M2M solutions for our customers, we have strategically partnered with nPhase and have utilized the framework of the nPhaseDSN solution to resoundingly successful results," says Bob Sheffres, Vice President of Opto 22. "We are very excited to see the full range of nPhase's M2M offerings bundled in this way and productized for customers sourcing best of breed software, hardware, and services for their M2M applications."
Sheffres continues, "nPhase's approach of offering secure, turn-key, wireless connectivity solutions across GSM, CDMA, Ethernet and POTs fills an important and, up till now, unaddressed market need in the industry."
"Flexible and reliable end-to-end connectivity between devices and assets in the field and back-office systems is essential for realizing the business value of an M2M network," says Glen Allmendinger of Harbor Research. "By providing customers with both technical and business support for deployments on GDM and CDMA networks, nPhase is simplifying the challenge for companies trying to deploy large-scale M2M solutions."
nPhaseDSN(TM) includes: secure, direct connections to both the Sprint PCS CDMA wireless network and the Cingular GSM network; activation, custom rate plans and resale of both GSM and CDMA data service; nPhase software and M2M data protocols that enable two-way, secure, end-to-end connectivity; and a software development kit that reduces the complexities of implementing cellular wireless solutions. In addition, nPhaseDSN(TM) integrates POTS and other communications providing normalized date regardless of the communications path.
Companies connect their servers to the nPhase network operations center and through this single connection, applications and remote devices can talk bi-directionally through any mix of SMS, GSM/GPRS/EDGE/UMTS, CDMA/1XRTT, Ethernet and POTS without having to change the server application.
