SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Novatel Wireless, Inc. (Nasdaq:NVTL), a leading provider of intelligent wireless solutions, today announced that its Enabler® HS 3001 CDMA smart module for machine-to-machine applications has been certified for use on the Sprint network. The Enabler HS 3001 is a dual band (800/1900 MHz) CDMA2000 1X module that is supported by the rich on-board N4A Communication and Management Software agent to provide speedy market introduction of M2M deployments on the nationwide Sprint CDMA network.
The Enabler HS 3001 is part of Novatel Wireless' family of smart M2M embedded modules that are compatible in form factor, functionality and AT command interfaces. As a result, customers who use multiple networks can seamlessly exchange modules without redesign of underlying M2M devices.
The Enabler HS 3001 is also expected to roll out in Novatel Wireless' mobile tracking, asset tracking and telemetry portfolio of integrated platforms in the future, and will be part of the joint offering to Sprint's M2M customers under the Sprint Open-Network-Execution (ONE) approach.
"We are excited to collaborate with Sprint and its M2M customers to further expand the development of innovative M2M applications," said Dr. Slim Souissi, CTO, Novatel Wireless.
