Enfora, Motorola Partner on WiMAX Wireless Platforms

Enfora, a leading global supplier of intelligent wireless networking solutions, announced their WiMAX wireless platform, based on Motorola’s WMP1000 technology, and targeted to the growing demand for WiMAX enabled devices within vertical markets such as automotive, healthcare and energy for WiMAX connected solutions. Bringing together key hardware and software elements from its industry leading portfolio of wireless solutions, Enfora’s WiMAX platform provides the capability to build intelligent connectivity directly at the edge of the network. The platform is also designed to work with the Enfora Service Gateway, enabling businesses to directly control and manage mobile assets from existing enterprise applications.

“We have seen a gap in the M2M market for higher bandwidth and remote access that traditional wireless technologies have not been able to fill in a cost effective way,” said Jeff Newman, chief strategy officer, Enfora. “WiMAX technology is well positioned to fill that gap and to enable many different applications for vertical markets such as lone worker monitoring, in-vehicle telematics, security monitoring, and energy monitoring.”

“We are thrilled to be working with Enfora,” said Gary Koerper, vice president, Engine Platforms, Motorola. “Enfora brings tremendous knowledge and expertise to the development of wireless networking solutions for the M2M market.”

Enfora will demonstrate its latest platform innovations at WiMAX World 2008, booth 601, via a live, over the air demo connected to production WiMAX Access Point.

The WiMAX platform and Service Gateway are part of Enfora’s eWiDE[tm] suite of wireless networking solutions.
