SYDNEY -- NetComm Wireless Limited and Kanematsu Communications Limited announce that NTT DOCOMO, Japan's largest mobile service provider with over 63 million subscribers, has passed two NetComm Wireless 3G M2M Smart Router models (NTC-6200-12 and NTC-6200-13) for deployment on its nationwide 3G network to expand customer access to DOCOMO M2M services.
The Japanese government expects much of Japan's ICT industry growth to come from the Machine-to-Machine (M2M)/IoT sector as network operators such as NTT DOCOMO develop partnerships that provide domestic and export customers with price-competitive M2M solutions that generate value. Developed to meet the high-grade requirements of the Japanese market, the NetComm Wireless NTC-6200-12 and NTC-6200-13 have passed NTT DOCOMO's Inter-Operability Test (IOT) and are ready to provide reliable access to DOCOMO's M2M services.
The technology allows enterprise customers to monitor and manage mission-critical assets and systems located anywhere in the world from an online management website. The NTC-6200-12 and NTC-6200-13 feature a number of communication interfaces, seamless integration and open customisation to give businesses complete control of construction equipment, machinery, surveillance cameras, digital signage and other remote assets in real time. Both devices offer the capacity to troubleshoot issues, upgrade firmware and rollout new applications from any location.
"Companies are adjusting their business models to take full advantage of the new efficiencies made possible using open and adaptable 3G M2M technology and we will continue to collaborate with NetComm Wireless on the delivery of cost-effective connection and communication technology that brings global M2M capabilities to the Japanese market," said Mr. Koji Nishimaki, Corporate Officer & General Manager of Corporate Sales Division, Kanematsu Communications.
"This launch represents our strong position in the Japanese market and we look forward to continuing to deliver a portfolio of M2M products to DOCOMO customers in partnership with Kanematsu Communications. The highly efficient and economical NTC-6200 series is equipped with the features, interfaces and scalability needed to support Japan's surging pace of change," said David Stewart, CEO and Managing Director, NetComm Wireless.
The NTC-6200-12 and NTC-6200-13 are JATE/TELEC certified, having passed DOCOMO's Inter-Operability Testing, and each enable easy integration with enterprise IP systems using VPN connectivity. The embedded Linux OS and Software Development Kit (SDK) facilitates the development of custom software applications; and multipurpose interfaces including: GPS, I/O ports, Serial, Ethernet and USB vary between models.
