KORE Expands Operations into Japan by Partnering with Micro Technology Co Ltd

KORE, the world’s largest dedicated provider of machine to machine (M2M) wireless data networks, has appointed Micro Technology its exclusive regional partner for Japan. Based in Tokyo, Micro Technology has been providing research, design and manufacturing services for embedded systems since 1983 and have recently expanded their portfolio into M2M solutions.

KORE has expanded its global footprint into the Japanese market following its recent successes throughout Asia Pacific.

President and Chief Operating Officer of KORE Wireless, Alex Brisbourne, said the partnership is a first for the business and brings new opportunities for companies based in Japan to expand their operations using the KORE Global M2M network.

“We’ve long seen Japan as a market with great growth and potential in the M2M space, with many companies based in Japan wanting to expand their operations internationally,” said Brisbourne. “With the help of Micro Technology, KORE is now perfectly positioned to make these plans a reality.”

Vice President and General Manager of KORE Wireless Asia Pacific, Shane Murphy, said this partnership will enable full support for local Japanese customers as well as KORE customers wanting to approach the Japanese market from the outside.

“This new partnership will allow us to drive in-country sales and provide localised support to customers in Japan. Micro Technology has a history of success in the embedded solution field, and an intimate knowledge of the Japanese market; we couldn’t have asked for a better partner for the region,” said Murphy.

Micro Technology will complement the KORE service offering by developing end to end M2M solutions in vehicle telematics, remote healthcare and factory automation, all connected by the KORE Global M2M Network.

Shinichi Ishimatsu, chief executive officer of Micro Technology, has been watching the steady growth of the Japanese M2M market and thinks now is the perfect time for the partnership with KORE. “We’ve seen demand for M2M wireless solutions growing in Japan for some time and our partnership with KORE now allows us to capitalize on this,” he said. “Not only can we design and build these solutions for our customers, we can now offer them a full service including a platform and connectivity.”

Micro Technology will now have access to the full range of cellular and satellite based KORE M2M services and is already building devices for use locally in Japan and across the KORE Global network.

KORE will be joining Micro Technology at Japan IT Week from the 14th – 16th of May to exhibit available M2M services and showcase their capabilities in this growing market.
