With our direct partnership with Sprint, we are able to offer CDMA technology at a competitive value to our customers."
Key benefits for the automotive finance community include:
- Faster network access and data speeds for faster vehicle locates
- Expanded coverage and more reliable connections -- even in rural & remote areas

"Sprint is proud to bring improved wireless connectivity to Spireon and its customers," said Brian Miller, Sprint regional vice president. "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."
