Wyless, a global M2M managed services provider, on Tuesday announced an agreement with Clearwire to offer the first machine-to-machine (M2M) 4G products available on the Clearwire network. The agreement will provide 4G connectivity to Wyless customers and partners in more than 80 markets across the United States.
Clearwire ’s 4G network offers a high-capacity wireless broadband service that can support digital signage, wireless backup, ATMs, surveillance, point-of-sale and interactive kiosk connectivity. Data intensive applications are becoming more prevalent in the M2M market space and managing capacity and cost are primary concerns in an M2M deployment, says Wyless.
Wyless will be offering pooled price plans starting at under $10 in the U.S.
Clearwire’s 4G technology can support a wide range of M2M devices and Wyless will be leveraging their partnership with Clearwire to deliver devices to their customers and partners as they become available this spring.
“The Clearwire 4G network will enable us to offer a completely new service to our customers and partners,” said Peter Dunn, Director of Product Development for Wyless. “We are now able to fill a specific need in our portfolio of carrier services that had been unmet by our previous product offerings.”
“Expanding our product portfolio to serve the rapidly growing demand for machine to machine connectivity is a natural extension of the quality broadband service our 4G network offers,” said Dow Draper, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Retail for Clearwire.
