SAN DIEGO -- May 20, 2013

Novatel Wireless, Inc. (Nasdaq:NVTL), a leading provider of intelligent
wireless solutions, today announced that its Enabler® HS 3001 CDMA smart
module for machine-to-machine applications has been certified for use on the
Sprint network. The Enabler HS 3001 is a dual band (800/1900 MHz) CDMA2000 1X
module that is supported by the rich on-board N4A Communication and Management
Software agent to provide speedy market introduction of M2M deployments on the
nationwide Sprint CDMA network.

The Enabler HS 3001 is part of Novatel Wireless’ family of smart M2M embedded
modules that are compatible in form factor, functionality and AT command
interfaces. As a result, customers who use multiple networks can seamlessly
exchange modules without redesign of underlying M2M devices.

The Enabler HS 3001 is also expected to roll out in Novatel Wireless’ mobile
tracking, asset tracking and telemetry portfolio of integrated platforms in
the future, and will be part of the joint offering to Sprint’s M2M customers
under the Sprint Open-Network-Execution (ONE) approach.

“We are excited to collaborate with Sprint and its M2M customers to further
expand the development of innovative M2M applications,” said Dr. Slim Souissi,
CTO, Novatel Wireless. “Our proven form factor supports rapid product
development, and robustness in the field and we are thrilled to be
collaborating with Sprint to help application developers, OEMs, M2M service
providers and enterprises get new solutions up and running on the Nationwide
Sprint Network quickly and cost-effectively.”

Building on the proven design of the Enfora module series, the Enabler HS 3001
low power platform delivers small size and industry-leading performance,
reliable connectivity, and device intelligence needed for today’s demanding
M2M applications. These include security, remote maintenance and control,
automatic vehicle location asset tracking, point of sale, mHealth, and
advanced metering infrastructure and automatic meter reading.

“We’re excited to collaborate with Novatel Wireless on both embedded modules
and their advanced integrated M2M solutions,” said Wayne Ward, Vice President,
M2M Group, Sprint. “Innovative companies across many sectors can now take
advantage of our joint service offerings, enabled by Sprint’s dependable
network. And as a 1X module, the Enabler HS 3001 is well suited for companies
that want to continue with 1xRTT. Unlike some other major carriers, Sprint
expects to maintain its 2G 1xRTT capability for the long term as part of our
Network Vision strategy.”
