ATLANTA, April 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Numerex Corp (NASDAQ: NMRX), a leading
provider of on-demand and interactive machine-to-machine (M2M) enterprise
solutions, announced today that it will sponsor and play a leading role in an
international conference on M2M standards, scheduled to be held at the Georgia
Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) on May 7, 2013. Dr. Jeffrey O. Smith,
Chief Innovation and Technology Officer at Numerex, will lead the event as
chairman of the M2M Standardization Task Force (MSTF), a forum from the Global
Standards Collaboration, which is centered around the International
Telecommunication Union, a specialized agency of the United Nations.

The internationally attended meeting will address a wide range of M2M and
Internet of Things standardization initiatives including those within the open
source community. Hosted by the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA),
and the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI), the conference will include
representatives from the International Telecommunication Union, the European
Telecommunications Standards Institute, oneM2M Partnership, the Open
Geospatial Consortium, the Weightless Standard Special Interest Group, and
other open source-focused groups such as the Open Source Internet of Things
(OSIOT) Silicon Valley Group, the Eclipse M2M Industry Working Group, OASIS
(Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards) and UC
Berkeley's Open Wireless Sensor Networks project (OpenWSN).

As chairman of the MSTF, Dr. Smith's role is to facilitate the various
standards organizations and open source groups working together to gain an
understanding of their respective stance on the key issues. When insight is
gained on the key differences and commonalities, the next steps to
standardization implementation and international agreement can occur.

"Numerex remains at the vanguard of M2M trends and industry issues, including
the critical issue of standardization," said Stratton J. Nicolaides, Chairman
and CEO of Numerex. "This conference exemplifies the effective collaborative
partnership we have with TIA and Georgia Tech as well as our commitment to
staying ahead of technological developments that can benefit our customers in
a wide range of domains."
