Wavefront Launches International Initiatives to Help Canadian Wireless Companies Expand Overseas

Opportunity for Companies to Meet Top Tier Wireless and M2M Partners and Customers in Europe and Asia

Vancouver, B.C. – Wavefront, the commercialization centre accelerating the growth of Canada’s wireless companies, announced today that it has launched two initiatives to help Canadian wireless companies expand overseas and take advantage of revenue opportunities in Europe and Asia: the “Canadian M2M Mission to Northern Europe” and a series of WaveGuide™ seminar and consultation sessions entitled “Japanese Wireless Market Opportunities.” Wavefront is currently seeking innovative, wireless companies across Canada interested in exporting their services internationally and meeting key players in the wireless industries abroad.

“The wireless market is experiencing explosive growth,” said Wavefront President James Maynard. “With the number of connected devices reaching the billions, the potential for wireless and machine-to-machine service revenue is practically unlimited. Wavefront wants to help Canadian wireless companies capitalize on these opportunities by introducing them to customers and partners worldwide and expanding their market share overseas, while leveraging the reputation Canada has already established in this space.”

Wavefront’s Canadian M2M Mission to Northern Europe

For Canadian machine-to-machine (M2M) companies interested in entering the burgeoning European market, Wavefront is leading a “Canadian M2M Mission to Northern Europe.” In collaboration with the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT), Wavefront will select the top Canadian companies developing innovative M2M solutions, such as smart metering, vehicle and asset tracking, and home automation. In September 2011, Wavefront will lead the selected companies to Helsinki, Finland; Stockholm, Sweden; and Cologne, Germany; where they will have the unique opportunity to present their M2M technologies and network with potential partners and customers including top tier carriers, infrastructure organizations and systems integrators specializing in the M2M space. Companies will also have the opportunity to showcase their solutions at the M2M Summit conference in Cologne, Germany, where DFAIT has secured exhibitor space for the selected Canadian M2M companies. Interested companies are asked to send in their applications by June 8, 2011 and visit www.wavefront.ca/accelerator/waveconnect-europe-machine-to-machine/ for more information.

WaveGuide™ Seminar & Consultation Sessions: “Japanese Wireless Market Opportunities”

For the third consecutive year, Wavefront has partnered with the Mobile Computing Promotion Consortium (MCPC) of Japan to connect Canada’s community of innovative wireless companies to the Japanese market, one of the top mobile markets in the world generating over $71B in revenues. Wavefront will be hosting free seminars entitled “Japanese Wireless Market Opportunities” on June 13, 2011 in Toronto and June 15, 2011 in Vancouver for companies interested in connecting with and learning more about the MCPC and Japanese wireless market opportunities. Companies can also apply for one-on-one consultation sessions with the MCPC, including representatives from NTT DOCOMO, NEC, DOCOMO SYSTEMS, FUJITSU, AISYS.
