"Spireon customers are guaranteed ongoing network support and a much richer and interactively rewarding CDMA solution, including a path to higher speeds, if needed. This is yet another benefit of the strategic relationship recently announced by Spireon and Sprint."
"Over the past 2 years, we've been investing millions of dollars into our next generation SaaS-based M2M platform," says David Meyer, EVP of Sales and Service at Spireon. "We've already shipped nearly a million NSpire enabled Talon devices over the past 18 months; and now with the rollout of Spireon's award-winning Automotive Collateral Management Platform updated with CDMA technology, we are looking to redefine the automotive industry standards by delivering unprecedented performance, scalability, security, network coverage and services."
