Las Vegas, NV – September 10, 2014 – CTIA CONFERENCE – M2M Spectrum Networks, LLC (M2M SN) today announced a broad partnership with Agile Network Builders, LLC (Agile) that enhances each other’s customer footprint throughout the State of Ohio. This new partnership will accelerate M2M SN’s continuous coverage across the state by utilizing Agile’s significant existing network infrastructure. M2M SN has developed and implemented a new purpose-built, proprietary approach to assembling a nationwide network that substantially lowers costs and dramatically speeds implementation compared to the slow and expensive nationwide cellular network build-out programs.
“Today’s announcement with Agile is another solid step in our journey to cost effectively and expeditiously build our machine-to-machine (M2M) network across North America,” said Doreen Trant, Senior Vice President, Network Implementation. “This partnership will help us fully deliver on our network strategy by giving us strong back-end capabilities and increased tower infrastructure across the State of Ohio. Agile is another perfect partner to help us fully realize an extremely cost effective data network in the long term.”
The partnership is a strong strategic fit, leveraging the two leading companies’ respective strengths across several areas. The companies have forged a Reseller relationship in which M2M Spectrum Networks will provide Agile Network Builders’ customers with a sophisticated cost effective machine-to-machine network for facilitating the Internet of Things (IOT). This includes applications in security & alarm monitoring; electric power, water, gas and waste utilities – including Smart Grid systems; fleet vehicle dispatch, location & route optimization; vending other machine monitoring systems; gas, oil and other mining operations, including pipelines & tanks; Connected Car & Smart Road solutions; and numerous other potential and emerging M2M applications, as well as augmenting The Agile Network’s already impressive Last-mile Agility.
“The relationship with M2M represents a powerful opportunity for Agile to add a suite of unique product offerings that we know there is a demand for amongst our existing customer base. M2M has clearly demonstrated its ability to apply its considerable resources and network expertise not only as a new M2M carrier entrant, but to deliver a solution unlike any other available today,” said Kyle Quillen, CTO of Agile Network Builders. “We’re excited to partner with M2M Spectrum Networks as we focus our combined energies serving a broader range of customers with cost effective machine-to machine solutions.”
