New System Combines Spectrum’s Proprietary RFID Technology with Wavecom’s CDMA Module with A-GPS
Richardson, TX (U.S.) and Issy-les-Moulineaux (France) -March 14, 2005

Spectrum Management, L.L.C., a global provider of innovative physical and electronic security products which include its proprietary asset tracking and management systems, announced today the completion of its TracPac CS Tag and the development of an all-new web-based tracking and location system.  Spectrum has combined technologies with Wavecom, a leading provider of pre-packaged wireless communications solutions for automotive, industrial and mobile professional applications, with a wide range of fully integrated modules and modems.

The new Tag design pairs Wavecom’s Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) module with GPSOne, and Spectrum’s proprietary VHF homing technology to provide a wide range of Location Based Services (LBS).  Spectrum Management expects to offer similar tracking and location services on Global System for Mobile (GSM) communications by simply substituting Wavecom’s plug-in compatible GSM module. 

“We selected the Wavecom technology as we felt it best met the requirements for the new TracPac CS Tag/LBS System and integrated well with our current RFID technology standards,” said Dr. James Van Cleave, executive vice president of Spectrum Management.  “The compact size and flexibility of this new Tag permits it to be attached to, or concealed in, any kind of object a System user will wish to track.  System use merely requires access to a cellular network, which the Wavecom module provides.”

Pierre Piver, president of Wavecom, Inc. commented, “Wavecom is delighted to have been selected by Spectrum Management to help them expand their entire range of Location Based Services,” adding, “Wavecom’s Q2438F wireless module is the most attractive and highly integrated CDMA module already certified by most carriers.  Its interchangeability with the Q2406/26B GSM/GPRS modules provides users with the ability to create multiple applications for markets around the globe.”
