Multi-Tech Systems and CrossBridge Solutions Join Forces to Offer Cellular M2M Made Easy

Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) June 08, 2011

Multi-Tech Systems, a world leader in machine-to-machine (M2M) communications solutions, announces a special offer with CrossBridge Solutions, an industry-leading Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO), to offer a free 90-day data plan on the AT&T network with its Cellular Development Platform (CDP). The Cellular Development Platform is an all-in-one hardware and OpenEmbedded Linux development environment that dramatically simplifies the M2M application development process while significantly reducing costs and time to market. To further streamline the development process, CrossBridge Solutions is sponsoring a free 90-day evaluation of the AT&T network coupled with access to the CrossBridge Solutions data portal, providing instant access to device status, data usage and other key application information. For a limited time, this special offer is available for purchase exclusively on the Multi-Tech website for just $ 299 USD.


One challenge companies often face bringing an M2M application to market is the integration of their application with a module or modem to enable data transport over a cellular network. Another challenge is creating relationships with the various carriers required to secure network access. The cost and time-to-market required to overcome these challenges can pose significant barriers for all but the largest organizations. To demonstrate the benefits of their joint solution, Multi-Tech Systems and CrossBridge Solutions are co-sponsoring the Cellular M2M Made Easy webcast, offered on Thursday, June 16th at 10:00 AM CDT and Tuesday June 28th at 1:00 PM CDT. Interested developers may register for either session on the Multi-Tech website.


As a preferred partner, Multi-Tech Systems shares with us the quality-oriented values that are required to quickly bring a reliable M2M solution to market, said Rod Massie, president of CrossBridge Solutions, Inc. We know that the engineering and quality from a Multi-Tech platform equally matches a CrossBridge Solution. Our full-featured evaluation kit provides more than just network activation; it complements the Multi-Tech CDP to increase both the ease and speed to an ultimate M2M solution.


As a virtual operator of multiple wireless networks serving the M2M marketplace, CrossBridge Solutions technology assists customers in optimizing their wireless solutions allowing them to get to market sooner, reduce operating expenses and improve the overall customer service. The Evaluation Kit includes a software tunnel and internet-direct access, activated SIM card(s) and/or an ESN with a private static IP, and a web portal account with technical support. For Multi-Tech customers, CrossBridge is providing free 90-day access to the AT&T network for usage not to exceed 50MB per month, with seamless transition to a production account at no additional charge.
