M3 TECHNOLOGIES (Asia) Bhd, a diversified technology company, through its Indonesian subsidiary PT Surya Genta Perkasa (Mobiletren) has signed a conditional agreement to provide machine-to-machine (M2M) devices to a telco in Indonesia.
The agreement is part of a two-year master purchase agreement which includes charges for professional services and will be carried out in stages over a 2-year period.
“We are delighted to announce this pivotal milestone for our company as we gear up to deliver the first shipment to our partner in Indonesia. We look forward to building on this momentum as well as the potential for further distribution agreements covering additional geographies in the future,” said M3 Tech general manager Kevin Ng Chen Lok (pic).
“In view of this, we will continue to work closely with our Indonesian customer in research and development efforts to innovate and upgrade our sensor and improve its effectiveness.”
A SIM card in the device allows vehicle owners to monitor, guide, and control their vehicles directly from a smartphone.
The device is designed for seamless plug-in to a vehicle’s wiring harness without the need for cutting or splicing of wires.
An app available on the App and Play Store allows vehicle owners to constantly monitor the location and speed of their vehicles and allows them to kill the engine remotely in case of theft, as the device is connected to the engine control unit.
