ORLANDO, Fla. -- KORE Telematics, North America's largest independent provider of wireless GSM services for the machine to machine (M2M) market, today announced at CTIA Wireless 2007 the release of the PRISM(tm) Integration Toolkit, which enables its service provider partners to fully integrate management of the network into their own back-office applications. The Integration Toolkit is available to KORE Application Service Provider (ASP) customers, who already use KORE's PRISM(tm) web-based provisioning service, and helps increase operational efficiency and provide 24/7 network control directly by service providers.
By using the Toolkit, KORE customers are able to manage all aspects of SIM provisioning directly within their own application, so improving response time and eliminating potential errors. Now, from within the customers' own internal systems, they can gain full control of network feature sets such as services allowed, roaming support and activation and suspension. Already, PRISM(tm) provides extensive inventory control, trouble ticket management and feature management. The Toolkit extends this capability, and adds new service enhancements, which include per-SIM 'overuse' alarm management thresholding, 24 hour a day real-time activation with acknowledgement, and a common interface for all markets and technologies supported by KORE.
To ensure customers have a seamless implementation, KORE provides a test platform to allow customers to test their API Interface code before launching it onto the production environment.
"With both a direct API Toolkit and the PRISM(tm) Web Gateway service offerings, KORE empowers any type of ASP customer - whether it is an emerging new entrant in remote utility monitoring who requires full web support or a market leading corporation in vehicle telematics who requires systems integration," said Alex Brisbourne, president and chief operating officer for KORE Telematics.
"The new API is an example of our mission to lead the market through excellence in innovation, knowledge and service standards. The design of this new service has been driven by our customers. New features including the ability to activate - or suspend - devices at a moment's notice are increasingly important in certain emerging segments. Also, the delivery of new threshold monitoring tools at a per device level ensure that accidental, or fraudulent, use is trapped early," concluded Brisbourne.
