Numerex wants to provide A-to-Z for the M2M market. The company's products monitor and control remote assets. Its machine-to-machine (M2M) offerings include device management integration services and third-party wireless radio modules. Numerex's Uplink wireless messaging applications are used in commercial and residential security systems. Its products transmit alarms over a dedicated cellular data link to monitoring stations. Numerex's Satellite Solutions unit provides satellite phones and GPS tracking equipment to government agencies and emergency service providers. Its FastTrack monitoring and control system remotely manages devices and processes such as pipeline temperature sensors and flow monitoring.
Thanks mainly to strong sales of the company's security hardware and cellular and satellite tracking devices, revenue at Numerex rose more than 14% in 2010 compared with 2009.
In addition to its branded lines, Numerex provides its offerings as "white label" products that resellers, systems integrators, and OEMs integrate into their own offerings.
Numerex's non-core operations include videoconferencing products, network monitoring hardware and software (Digilog), and wireline data communication technology (DCX).
The company has entered the cloud-computing space with Numerex DNA, which combines devices, network, and application capabilities, and FAST (Foundation Application Software Technology), a platform for application development.
Numerex is also expanding into the European space by opening a London office and partnering with Arkessa, a UK company that serves the M2M market in Europe, which is forecast to grow more than 12% by 2015. – less
