KORE Wireless, the world’s largest dedicated M2M wireless network provider, together with ATrack, Taiwan’s leading Telematics hardware manufacturer, have established a global partnership to provide ATrack customers access to KORE M2M network services in more than 150 countries worldwide.
This partnership allows ATrack to provide eligible customers free of charge the KORE M2M Starter Kit, including two KORE Global Connect SIM cards, with 90 days of M2M data and SMS for testing hardware on the KORE M2M Network.
“With providers like ATrack, finding a quality Telematics device is now easier than ever before. It is very complex and time consuming to create relationships with local network operators in every country you want to deploy in,” said Shane Murphy, vice president and general manager of KORE Wireless Asia Pacific. “By partnering with KORE, ATrack can now provide its customers with a single SIM that will work in multiple countries, across multiple carriers and get them connected instantly.”
Murphy continued, “Working together with ATrack further cements KORE’s commitment to developing relationships and growing through Asia regionally. Asia is poised to be the fastest growing region for M2M over the next five years. Our goal is to partner with quality device and application providers across the region to make sure that our customers have all the tools necessary to take advantage of this exciting market shift.”
This marks the first partnership of its kind between KORE and ATrack, who have historically focused purely on providing hardware, leaving its customers to find their own network provider in each country.
“Our customers are still free to select their own network when they use our hardware, however what we are doing with this partnership is allowing those customers who don’t have an existing relationship or want to deploy using the power of a dedicated M2M network provider with easy, quick access to test their new device on one of the world’s largest M2M networks free of charge,” said Frank Tang, CEO of ATrack.
New and existing ATrack customers can contact their ATrack sales manager for a referral code allowing them to sign up for the KORE M2M Starter Kit at http://www.korewireless.com.au/m2mstarter/.
ATrack customers who sign up will receive 2 KORE Wireless SIM Cards with 90 days access to the KORE Global M2M Network including 30MB of data across 2G & 3G networks, 20 SMS Messages and service in more than 150 Countries (network availability may vary by country).

In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, John Jelinek IV, a web developer at Linux Academy, will discuss why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walked through how Octob...
