First Implementation of Esmertec’s Java Solution in Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Devices.

Enfora L.P. , a leader in wireless data solutions, has signed an agreement to partner with Esmertec, a leading provider of software solutions for mobile phones and embedded devices, to incorporate Esmertec’s wireless Java technology (J2ME) in Enfora’s GSM/GPRS OEM devices.

Under the agreement, Esmertec will be delivering its leading runtime platform, Jbed to enable a Java application environment for networked embedded devices such as parking meters, Point of Sale (POS) devices, wireless modules in home alarm systems, and industrial metering devices. Jbed will be implemented onto a version of Enfora’s GSM/GPRS Quad-Band Enabler IIG OEM Module, which can be incorporated into a variety of machine-to-machine (M2M) systems used in telemetry, automated vehicle locators (AVL) and public safety.

Specifically, Esmertec’s Java software will be integrated with Enfora’s extensive M2M Application Programming Interface (API), which is resident on the OEM module. By incorporating Java software as an application developer language, M2M developers will be able access such features as TCP (PAD), UDP (PAD), Enfora’s Event Driven I/O Engine, Auto Activation and Real-Time Clock. Integrating Java technology directly into the OEM module reduces the overall M2M system cost, thereby providing competitive advantages to companies in this burgeoning market.

“Enfora’s choice of Esmertec is attributed to its superior Java technology,” said Jeff Newman, Sr. Vice President, Business Development. “Our customers need the ability to create applications resident on our GSM/GPRS Quad Band module to continue to reduce the overall cost of their M2M solution. With Esmertec’s Java solution, our products are empowered with intercommunication, interoperability and device resident intelligence to carry out mission critical functions.”

“Esmertec’s core technology is designed to fit a large variety of embedded devices, specifically those which require cost and memory efficiency,” said Jean-Claude Martinez, COO of Esmertec. “Having a major player like Enfora as a customer signifies Esmertec’s arrival in the U.S. M2M market. We look forward to working with Enfora to provide their customers with products that gives them an edge in a highly competitive market.”
