As part of the acquisition, ASPIDER HOLDING Chairman & founder Jan Willem van Doorn, will join the Wyless Board of Directors, and Michel Zwijnenberg, ASPIDER M2M Vice President, will take a Senior Exec role within Wyless Europe PLC, resulting from  Aspider's integration with Wyless UK.

ASPIDER's Intelligent Network solutions also enable Wyless to serve worldwide SMEs in a prepaid Google style model."

Michel Zwijnenberg, Vice President ASPIDER M2M said; "I believe strongly in the emerging Internet of Things market.
