Kore Telematics, a Toronto-based provider of digital wireless services for the machine-to-machine (M2M), telematics and telemetry markets, has announced that it has partnered with CDMA wireless services to power new data services for the M2M market.

Under this agreement, KORE will now offer a base of wireless M2M data services to its customers and partners on CDMA and GSM networks.

According to Berg Insight, CDMA held a 67% market share among cellular and wireless M2M technologies in the North American market at the end of 2006.

“Total shipments of cellular M2M devices in North America reached a record level of 5.3 million units in 2006, and we expect that number to hit nearly 8 million M2M-based devices shipped this year,” said Tobias Ryberg, principal analyst at Berg Insight.

“As the demand for M2M applications continues to grow at exponential rates, providing customers and partners with the ability to choose a wireless network — CDMA or GSM — will create more flexibility for M2M wireless applications providers.”
