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).

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...

Manufacturing has widely adopted standardized and automated processes to create designs, build them, and maintain them through their life cycle. However, many modern manufacturing systems go beyond mechanized workflows to introduce empowered workers, flexible collaboration, and rapid iteration. Such behaviors also characterize open source software development and are at the heart of DevOps culture, processes, and tooling.

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.

As-a-service models offer huge opportunities, but also complicate security. It may seem that the easiest way to migrate to a new architectural model is to let others, experts in their field, do the work. This has given rise to many as-a-service models throughout the industry and across the entire technology stack, from software to infrastructure. While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...
