Apriva, provider of end-to-end wireless transactions and secure information solutions, has recently picked RACO Wireless to support its Point of Sale (POS) customers that use 2G payment terminals.
Apriva plans to migrate select customers using 2G and this transition is made easy with the help from RACO Wireless/T-Mobile (News - Alert) 2G network. RACO offers reliable service for Apriva’s customers with 2G POS devices for the foreseeable future.
According to Robert Martin, senior vice president for Apriva, when they began to evaluate M2M partners that support 2G technologies, it was apparent that RACO Wireless – in conjunction with the T-Mobile network – offered a customer solution that is both seamless and reliable.
“For Apriva, our continued support of 2G means uninterrupted service, continued growth and peace of mind that they don’t need to redesign their module in the short term. Apriva’s selection of RACO Wireless underscores our unwavering belief that we have the right tools, the right team and the right partner in T-Mobile — whether the customer needs 2G, 3G or 4G connectivity,” said John Horn, president of RACO Wireless.
RACO Wireless promises to offer a flexible, end-to-end M2M wireless connectivity solution for its partners – including delivering custom rate plans, tailored billing solutions and customized wireless connectivity as well as helping them brand their M2M applications and delivering 24/7 customer service, in just hours or days.
“With America’s largest 4G network, T-Mobile has the capability to deliver the coverage, speed and growing bandwidth needed for high-end 3D video systems or data-intensive applications. However, many of today’s M2M applications, like those from Apriva, do not yet require this kind of bandwidth,” said Jeremy Korst, vice president of M2M and MVNO at T-Mobile. “T-Mobile acknowledges this need in the marketplace. Therefore, we intend to continue to support our 2G and 3G networks for the foreseeable future.”
RACO Wireless is a subsidiary of RACO Industries (News - Alert) in Cincinnati, Ohio, a T-Mobile partner for 10 years and is a provider of wireless data solutions to the machine-to-machine (M2M) industry.
