RFI Engineering Finalizes European Pilot and Receives Order from Large Global Telecom Provider

Amsterdam, March 11, 2009

RFI Engineering, a leading manufacturer of cellular M2M products and applications, today announced that it has successfully completed a European-wide pilot, after extensive field testing of its M2M wireless product: the G-router.

Over hundred G-routers have been deployed in various European countries, enabling the provider to monitor and manage the equipment, installed on customer premises. The global operator is realizing considerable economic benefits and higher availability of the services rendered to their corporate customers through the deployment of the G-router. RFI Engineering has received the first of an expected series of follow up orders, for a large scale roll out across the entire global network.

RFI Engineering’ customer for this global contract is considered one of the world’s largest global operators in providing all-in service: telephone, data, internet, workplace management to a large selection of the “Fortune 500” companies, leveraging the international presence of the company with local expertise.

Services such as internet and email are nowadays crucial for the everyday operation of the corporate customers. The SLA (Service Level Agreement) will therefore specify availability (uptime) of these services of more than 99,99 %. A malfunction in the gateway to the customer’s network, i.e. the modem, is a significant disturbance, severely impacting the SLA level.

The G-router monitors “managed” customer routers/modems via GPRS, providing an instantly available and redundant link for maintenance and support purposes. The G-router also provides an optional “remote reboot” function: by control over a Remote Power Switch -designed by RFI Engineering as a special feature- the modem can be switched on and off.

“We are pleased that we could come up with the G-router as the best technical solution for our customer,” says Peter Calis, CEO of RFI Engineering. “The G-router, the best 24/7 watchdog, couples availability through the integrated GPRS and Quad band GSM functionality with the flexibility of the Linux operating system.”
