Tuesday September 10, 2013 (Sydney): NetComm Wireless Limited (ASX: NTC) today announced a strategic partner agreement with TData, a specialist Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and networking distributor, to deliver advanced wireless M2M and business continuity devices to value added resellers, system integrators and vertical market sectors in Australia.
The new partnership will further consolidate NetComm Wireless’ position in the Australian region, which is currently experiencing the world’s fastest M2M adoption rate. This growth is largely driven by a high uptake of M2M among small to medium sized organisations that stand to benefit from NetComm Wireless' portfolio of open source M2M devices which easily integrate with applications in areas such as energy & utilities, transport, asset management, manufacturing and retail.
Under the agreement, TData will also distribute a range of business continuity products developed by NetComm Wireless to protect businesses from the escalating cost of Internet downtime which continues to rise in terms of lost sales, productivity and reputation as businesses become more dependent on IP-based services such as Point of Sale (PoS), VoIP, Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and cloud-based systems.
"Our partner network is an important asset to NetComm Wireless and the targeted expansion of our distribution channel is of strategic importance. Australia is at the cusp of tremendous M2M growth and we are pleased to work with TData on building a strong sales pipeline and delivering significant value to customers," said David Stewart, CEO and Managing Director, NetComm Wireless.
"With 50% of organisations expected to have adopted M2M by 2015, and 78% citing M2M as crucial to business success, there exists a huge opportunity for carrier and channel partners focused on differentiation through an innovative and flexible approach to M2M," he said.
"NetComm Wireless' industry-leading portfolio of M2M and business continuity products are easily customised to support virtually any business, industrial or commercial application, in any environment, making a valuable addition to our product offerings," said Jeremy Campbell, Director, TData.
According to a new report by IHS, the immense expansion of wireless M2M connections, which are forecast to rise to 374.9 million worldwide by 2017, will drive significant value added service growth with the market expected to increase from $1.5 billion in 2012 to $10 billion by 2017.
