Trinity Telecomms strengthens position in wireless M2M market

14 June 2006 News

On the back of the recent announcement of Wavecom's acquisition of Sony-Ericsson's M2M Communications business unit, Trinity Telecomms, the official local distributor of Wavecom since 1997, has further strengthened its position as one of the leading providers of wireless communications solutions in the industrial, machine to machine (M2M) and mobile professional market.

William Hardie, MD of Trinity Telecomms, comments: "The news of the acquisition was met with huge excitement from the Trinity team, as it signals Wavecom's strengthening of its position in the wireless communications market worldwide. Wavecom has a focused strategy going forward, and will be emphasising the use of its OpenAT software design architecture to enable ongoing enhancements to the functionality of its wireless module offerings."

According to Hardie, Wavecom is revolutionising the wireless M2M market by introducing its Wireless CPU concept. The new Wavecom Wireless CPU, in conjunction with its Open AT operating system and application development environment, enables applications to be embedded in and run from the wireless CPU, thereby eliminating the need for a separate computer or processor. This minimises the need for additional hardware, reduces the required footprint specification and enhances the overall TCO for the finished product offering.

Says Hardie: "Trinity Telecomms, as a Wavecom distributor for the past 10 years, offers a unique blend of skills and expertise required to assist in the development of schematic and reference designs for our customers unique business requirements. More importantly, we are well positioned to provide the ongoing training and support to ensure that the existing and new wireless CPUs coupled with Wavecom's OpenAT software-based approach can be seamlessly implemented by our customers in the field."

"We have also geared up our after-sales support offering. During the first quarter of this year we have refurbished and expanded our technical support centre, and have become the first Wavecom distributor worldwide to have a Wavecom Test and Repair Bench facility installed at our Wireless Lab. We see this as an affirmation of Wavecom's trust in our technical expertise and knowledge of the overall Wavecom solution offering, and are proud to be taking this leadership position in expanding Wavecom's support capability in South Africa."

In February this year, Trinity Telecomms hosted the first ever Wavecom University OpenAT training course in South Africa. The course was attended by senior technicians and software design engineers from companies across diverse industries, principally to develop and expand on their use of Open AT as an embedded application development platform for rolling out more intelligent and feature rich wireless M2M solutions.

"The course was fully-booked, and the feedback has been excellent. We are already planning additional courses for later on this year to accommodate all those who could not attend the first course," adds Hardie. "We are firmly committed to ensuring that our customers have the necessary products, support and technical know-how in order to develop world-class wireless M2M applications. South Africa has a solid history in the technical and engineering fields, and we intend harnessing this capability by supporting and training our customers to take advantage of Wavecom's leading edge wireless solutions."
