CloudGate, the world’s most configurable M2M 3G gateway is now available with ClearConnex, Exosite, and Hilton Development Group
Option (EURONEXT: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), a global leader in wireless connectivity, security and experience, today announces partnerships with ClearConnex, Exosite and Hilton Development Group to enable their products and services with CloudGate – a secure, reliable and affordable 3G M2M gateway that brings new levels of flexibility and ease of deployment for M2M solutions.
Ryan Rangel, President, ClearConnex, said:
“The knowledge that we can port our ClearComm device software quickly and relatively easily makes CloudGate an obvious M2M gateway to start our customers ahead. The open, Linux based, platform and hardware expansion slots makes CloudGate an ideal platform for customers to utilize our engineering services to customize both the software and hardware for their specific needs with minimal expense and fast time to market.”
Erik Rorvick, Business Development Manager, Exosite, said:
“Ease of deployment is key in our business. Whether deploying 10 or 10,000 units our customers need end-to-end technology solutions they don’t have to maintain. The real value of M2M lies in each of our customer’s unique applications, providing a solution that just works out of the box allows them to stay focused on building that value.” Erik added, “CloudGate’s ability to automatically provision on any network paired with Exosite’s One Platform and Portals Web Applications offers the market the cost effective and ready to implement solution that it’s been waiting for.”
“We know that our customers need a variety of components to build the ideal solution to fit their needs,” said Rod Hilton, CEO and President of Hilton Development Group. “CloudGate gives customers the choice of those components for both their hardware and software needs. We are pleased that our MobileXus platform will be available for customers to use with CloudGate to enable advanced M2M solutions.”
Patrick Hofkens, Chief Development Officer at Option said:
“The fact that we have signed up these partners so quickly demonstrates the pent up demand from system integrators for a configurable M2M gateway. There’s nothing else like it on the market. This product was developed as a direct result of speaking with system integrators who needed a reliable, value priced 3G gateway that reduced the amount of different products and configurations that they were required to stock, enabling them to add value through their own middleware and hosted service platforms.”
CloudGate continuously monitors 3G connectivity and incorporates a number of innovative error recovery mechanisms that allow it to ensure the persistence of the 3G connection.
Over time Option plans to release a number of different expansion cards for CloudGate and is also licensing the expansion card format and connector details to interested parties free of charge. Option is currently working with third parties to develop hardware and software solutions for specific vertical markets.
CloudGate is available now from U.S. distributor GetWireless.
