Red Bend, Telit Wireless to Improve m2m Wireless Device Management1
Telit Wireless Solutions has licensed Red Bend Software’s client software for use in its m2m product portfolio.
The agreement between Telit and Red Bend could lead to new capabilities for m2m applications, including eliminating manual field software updates, enabling cost-efficient remote application maintenance and improving the reliability and lifespan of m2m modules.
The m2m sector is growing rapidly, and is expected to be worth $285 billion and reach 500 million modules deployed worldwide by 2010, according to market research firm IDATE. This represents a significant new market opportunity for Red Bend"The introduction of FOTA upgrade capability significantly increases value to our customers by reducing onsite visits and keeping recalls of remote applications to a minimum. With FOTA, only hardware-related failures, which happen less often, will need to be fixed manually in the field," said Telit President Dominikus Hierl. "This is an important development for the m2m market where product lifecycles span 5 to 10 years."
