2 Before We Begin… 1.This webinar is approximately 45 minutes with time for Q&A 2.Use the chat function to ask questions during the presentation 3.Highly specific or technical questions may be taken off-line 4.A link to the presentation will be sent after the webinar

3 Agenda Introductions Multi-Tech Systems M2M Overview Enabling Cellular Connectivity Options for Application Development MultiConnect™ OCG Overview - Software -Support -Hardware Getting Started

4 Multi-Tech Overview 41 years focused on M2M (machine-to-machine) communications 80+ patents 20+ million devices, thousands of customers worldwide U.S. based Engineering, Manufacturing, Certifications and Support Debt-free, company owned campus

5 Certifications Multi-Tech products certified by ‐30+ carriers ‐80+ countries Millions invested annually (people, equip, assoc, logistics) On-site, carrier and agency approved testing facility Industry leadership (PTCRB, associations, agencies) The Multi-Tech Approach (End-product approval)

6 M2M: Subscription Services Key Relationships to Succeed in M2M Arena Carriers Mobile Network Operators Carriers Mobile Network Operators MVNOs Mobile Virtual Network Operators MVNOs Mobile Virtual Network Operators MVNEs Mobile Virtual Network Enablers MVNEs Mobile Virtual Network Enablers

7 M2M Applications Small But Growing: M2M only 2% of all data plans in 2010 (up 46%) Consumers Driving Demand: Consumer electronic devices account for most M2M growth in North America and Europe, especially e-readers and personal navigation devices Growth Varies by Industry: - Transportation is the largest industry (and still growing) -Healthcare and Security applications overcoming privacy concerns -Emerging industries include Digital Signage and Metering

8 Cellular Connectivity What’s fueling the growth? Government funding Dropping technology prices Reduced connectivity rates from cellular carriers Increased availability of cellular networks worldwide Regulatory compliance Source: Berg Insight “The Global Wireless M2M Market” 291.4 Million

9 Enabling Cellular Connectivity Organizational Considerations: Organizational Capabilities Development Budget and Timeline Volume Expectations Total Cost of Ownership/ROI Expectations Application Flexibility/Roadmap Network Coverage Requirements Regulatory Considerations Successful development relies on multiple business disciplines: Hardware – Software – Certifications – Carrier Approvals – Manufacturing
