Chinese manufacturing giant Huawei has teamed up with technology distributor Embedded Works in the M2M market, aiming to “simplify and shorten” the deployment of M2M services for its customers.
Announced at the CTIA Wireless Show being held this week in Las Vegas, the deal will see Huawei (Shenzhen, China) and Embedded Works (Santa Clara, CA, USA) collaborate to provide customers with embedded modules plus related wireless components and network services.
Based in California, Embedded Works describes itself as a “value-added distributor and integrator” specializing in the RF and wireless markets.
“Huawei's array of M2M modules combined with our ability to provide GSM and CDMA data activations on a global scale makes for a truly seamless experience for customers who want M2M to be easy,” said Andy Do, the president of Embedded Works.
Although M2M forms a small part of Huawei’s business, the manufacturer says there is “huge potential” in the market for wireless modules and solutions and that it aims to collaborate with other companies in the industry to deliver competitive M2M products and services.
“Partnering with Embedded Works to accelerate M2M deployments is an all-around win for customers,” said Michael Chuang, the executive vice president of Huawei Device USA. “Through this partnership, we're able to provide M2M customers with the most appropriate devices, network services and applications in order to create customized solutions simply and efficiently.”
