Kyocera Wireless and Novotech Technologies Team to Strengthen Worldwide Distribution for CDMA-Based M2M Solutions

Kyocera Wireless Corp., a leading global manufacturer of CDMA wireless handsets and devices, and Novotech Technologies, Inc., a leading supplier of machine-to-machine (M2M) and man-to-machine products and technologies, today announced a new distribution agreement to bring the award-winning Kyocera 200 module and future generations of Kyocera CDMA modules to an expanding market, providing a cost-effective, single source for companies wanting to build comprehensive, industry-leading M2M solutions.

As one of the leading M2M distributors in the North America, Novotech's leverage in key vertical markets such as security, point of sale (POS), automated vehicle location (AVL), automated meter reading (AMR), telematics and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) significantly strengthens the Kyocera distribution channel. The Kyocera module also complements Novotech's other M2M product offerings such as GPS, 802.11, Zigbee, antennas and custom cable assemblies.

"The development of new lower-cost applications and embedded devices that take advantage of CDMA's increased data speeds and ubiquity has brought the M2M industry to a watershed moment with huge growth expected in 2006," said Dean Fledderjohn, general manager of the M2M division at Kyocera Wireless Corp. "Kyocera and Novotech are poised to capitalize on this expansion by offering the best CDMA products in the marketplace to a broad base of industries seeking to deploy M2M solutions."
