Commdex Selected by M2M Spectrum Networks, LLC for Network Build-Out
Norcross, GA, April 17, 2014 – Commdex has been selected by M2M Spectrum Networks to provide engineering expertise for the build-out of what will become the nation’s first purpose-built network designed specifically for machine-to-machine communications. The network roll out will occur in multiple phases, with the first sites being commissioned in second quarter of 2014. The network is expected to cover 75% of the US population by the end of 2015, and 95% by the end of 2016.
According to Commdex President, Prince Niyyar, “We are excited to partner with M2M Spectrum Networks to build their national, all-IP, M2M (Machine to Machine) network. M2M will rely on our experience in designing and building wireless networks in more than 45 states across the country. This is a great opportunity to develop our presence in the M2M market while displaying our ability to rapidly deploy the innovative technology and solutions required to support high priority missions.”
M2M technology has the potential to substantially improve production and efficiency by letting the devices automatically manage the key metrics of the devices. The telecommunications industry has been looking for an affordable solution for connecting devices, and this network fulfills that key need. Under this contract, Commdex is responsible for an array of services including RF engineering, frequency coordination, network design, and deployment & optimization. Today, the majority of machine to machine networks operate on legacy 2G networks, for which all US carriers have now announced a “sunset.” This build-out will result in a stable, low cost, nationwide M2M network with the capacity to support the technology and applications required to drive communications of the future.
“We are proud to provide engineering and technical expertise for what will be the first and only dedicated and licensed machine-to-machine network in the nation,” stated Commdex’ Vice President of Sales & Engineering, Chuck Bethea. “This network build-out will certainly pave the way for great advancements in critical communications in this country.”
“We look forward to the strategic partnership we have established with Commdex. We feel that our mutual customers will greatly benefit from the link between our M2M Data Network Solution and Commdex’s RF Engineering experience,” said Doreen Trant, Senior Vice President of Network Implementation of M2M Spectrum Networks.
