M2M Spectrum Networks announced today that it has been named to the annual FierceWireless “Fierce 15” list, designating it as one of the top privately-held wireless companies of the year. FierceWireless editors evaluated hundreds of organizations, and found M2M Spectrum Networks to be one of the most “fierce” startups in the wireless industry in 2014, and that the company has strong potential to grow in the years ahead.

FierceWireless, an internationally recognized daily email newsletter reaching more than 80,000 senior wireless industry executives, provides executives in over 100 countries with a quick, authoritative briefing on the day’s top wireless stories, including new trends and technologies.

“M2M Spectrum Networks has a clear vision to launch a nationwide, purpose-built M2M network using licensed spectrum,” said Phil Goldstein, Editor of FierceWireless. “The company’s approach will allow it to deliver the kind of network experience for M2M traffic that Tier 1 carriers can’t because their networks are not designed specifically for M2M traffic. Instead of charging per device per month, M2M Spectrum envisions getting a percentage of revenue or a percentage of the value of the application, a unique approach that has already attracted numerous industry partners.”

M2M Spectrum Networks (M2M SN) has designed a sophisticated, dedicated machine-to-machine network for facilitating the Internet of Things (IOT), including applications in Security & Alarm Monitoring; Electric Power, Water, Gas and Waste Utilities – including Smart Grid systems; Fleet Vehicle Dispatch, Location & Route Optimization; Vending other Machine Monitoring systems; Gas, Oil and other Mining operations, including Pipelines & Tanks; Connected Car & Smart Road solutions; and numerous other potential and emerging M2M applications.

M2M SN, through its hardware and software vendors, is developing a wide-area data radio system based on proprietary technology: Machine Data Network Architecture (“mDNA”), the foundation of M2M SN’s network infrastructure. In addition to providing both “High Site” and “Mesh Network” saturation coverage of the US, the mDNA architecture provides seamless interfaces to existing M2M applications, M2M application providers, and M2M MVNO’s.

“We feel privileged to be named to the FierceWireless ‘Fierce 15’,” commented Barclay Knapp, CEO of M2M SN. “It is a reflection of our commitment to offer customers a game-changing network, purpose-built and optimized solely for M2M applications, with innovations in provisioning, monitoring, pricing and other dimensions not yet seen in the marketplace.”

The FierceWireless “Fierce 15” celebrates the spirit of being “fierce,” championing innovation and creativity, even in the face of intense competition. The complete list of winning companies is available on the FierceWireless Web site at http://www.fiercewireless.com.
