LOS ANGELES, Oct. 4, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The CDMA Development Group (CDG) today announced the winners of the 2010 Smart Wireless Awards at the CDG's Smart Wireless Workshop during the IT Expo/4G Wireless Evolution conference. Co-presented by the CDG and media partner TMC, the awards celebrate innovative wireless devices and services using CDMA2000© networks in a number of vertical markets. Smart Wireless Awards winners are AnyDATA Corporation and partner Qualcomm Incorporated in the Modules category; MedApps Incorporated and partner KORE Telematics, Inc. in the Devices category; and ZTE Corporation and partner China Telecom in the Services category.
"The CDG congratulates the winners of the inaugural Smart Wireless Awards," said Perry LaForge, executive director of the CDG. "These companies are enabling M2M communications with CDMA2000 in vertical industries such as healthcare, transportation and asset tracking."
AnyDATA's DTW-500D Wearable Mobile Device Module utilizes a Qualcomm design to provide a smaller form factor at a lower cost and includes an accelerometer, R-UIM interface, GPS for location-based services and a built-in Bluetooth 2.0 capability. These features, combined with an EV-DO Rev. A radio interface, enable a new type of wearable device for medical, fitness, and tracking applications.
MedApps' HealthPAL MA106 Remote Patient Monitoring Device uses CDMA2000 1X and Bluetooth to track and send medical data to a Web-based electronic health record system over KORE Telematics' CDMA2000 M2M mobile network. MedApps' HealthCOM portal makes automated calls if a patient has not taken his health readings and visually prompts healthcare providers to respond proactively, making it easier to avert escalating conditions. HealthCOM can redirect medical readings to other electronic and personal health records and provide data trend analysis and detailed reporting features. HealthPAL has allowed elderly people to live in their own homes longer; reduced healthcare costs and readmissions to hospitals; lowered home health provider transportation costs and emergency visits; and enabled doctors and healthcare providers to make better data-driven diagnostic health decisions.
ZTE and China Telecom cooperatively built the Wireless Vehicle Monitoring and Management System to solve traffic congestion and guarantee vehicle security during the Shanghai Expo 2010. By using China Telecom's CDMA2000 EV-DO Rev. A network and ZTE's M2M Service Support Platform, this vehicle monitoring service can conduct real-time tasks such as vehicle video viewing, long-distance security detection, operating status reporting, GPS positioning and dispatching. Vehicle companies which have adopted this service experience increased vehicle management efficiency and enhanced security of their vehicles and its passengers.
The CDG Smart Wireless Modules and Services Special Interest Group (SIG) helps enable its member companies and their customers to leverage the CDG device team's common set of requirements for embedded CDMA2000 modules to make the testing and certification process more open and streamlined across various operators' networks. The SIG has also created an M2M marketplace, called Device Corner (www.devicecorner.com), to aggregate the demand for wireless modules and devices, enabling sellers to post products for sale and buyers to post their solution requirements.
