"By partnering with carrier-grade device manufacturers such as CalAmp, we can further reduce the time to market for customers by providing pre-provisioned devices, thereby simplifying the manufacturing and installation process and reducing time to revenue."

"Provisioning, testing and launching our devices on the Aeris network allows us to immediately offer our customers a superior fleet management product with the flexibility to meet our customers' ever-changing needs," said Greg Gower, vice president and general manager of CalAmp's Mobile Resource Management unit.
