Evolving Systems Launches Intelligent M2M Controller™ Solution

BARCELONA, SPAIN--(Marketwire - February 14, 2011) - Mobile World Congress

  • Innovative Approach to M2M Market Helps Service Providers Get Ready for New Connected World

Evolving Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVOL), a leading provider of software solutions and services to the wireless, wireline and IP carrier market, today announced the launch of its Intelligent M2M Controller™ product, a dedicated machine-to-machine (M2M) solution for wireless service providers.

Rather than provisioning M2M devices in the traditional way and permanently tying up resources, Evolving Systems' Intelligent M2M Controller solution will allow devices to securely connect to the network and send data only when required. The solution, which draws on proven technology from the Company's flagship Dynamic SIM Allocation™ solution, allows operators to reduce costs, protect their networks, and grasp the growing opportunity in the fast-moving M2M space.

"The M2M market is expected to ultimately be counted in billions, or even trillions, of M2M devices and connections," says Thad Dupper, Chief Executive Officer at Evolving Systems. "And with rapid growth being forecast, service providers must act now to give themselves the best chance of maximizing profits and achieving significant market share."

The rise in M2M devices using wireless networks also presents service providers with a range of challenges. Existing systems and processes cannot efficiently handle these devices, widely known as infrequent transmitters, which are low-powered and inexpensive, only sending small amounts of data, and connecting to the network intermittently.

In addition, the market is fragmented into a variety of industries, business models, devices and connectivity requirements -- so any solution needs to support a wide array of use cases and applications.

"To address these key challenges, providers will need to throw off the shackles of legacy business infrastructures and establish specialized M2M infrastructure," said Dupper. "The Intelligent M2M Controller helps them to meet these needs. 

"Service providers need to be aware that in this new connected world, it is costly, inefficient and wasteful to treat all devices the same," he said. "The development of the market depends on their ability to stimulate innovation and support new business models. If service providers fail to embrace new business and technological approaches, they run the risk of stifling innovation and hampering the development of this hugely promising new market."
