Business Wire

SAN DIEGO -- June 18, 2013

Novatel Wireless, Inc. (Nasdaq: NVTL), a leading provider of intelligent
wireless networking solutions, today announced that in collaboration with Net
Irrigate and Mesh Systems, it has been selected as a value chain award winner
in the Agriculture and Consumer Packaged Goods categories of the 2013
Connected World  Value Chain Awards, highlighting Novatel Wireless’ M2M
solutions.

Leveraging Novatel Wireless’ integrated M2M products, Net Irrigate, a
manufacturer of Wireless Agricultural Irrigation Monitoring (WAIM) technology,
created an M2M solution that enables farmers to minimize operational costs by
eliminating the need for onsite monitoring and control of irrigation
equipment. Receiving a new level of security and tracking for irrigation
systems, farmers indicate a return on initial investment usually occurs within
the first few months of operation.

For the gold award in the Consumer Packaged Goods category, Novatel Wireless
provides its Enabler HS 3001 CDMA module to Mesh Systems’ gateway, which is a
part of an interactive trade system from Anheuser Busch Inbev. The solution
leverages cloud technologies to provide retailers with a POS (point-of-sale)
system within each retail account that will activate based on sporting events,
weather conditions, or current events. A cellular gateway even allows text
notifications to be sent directly to consumers’ phones.

The Value Chain Awards honor the most successful corporate adopters of M2M
technology and the solution providers that made their success possible. The
awards recognize the process of combining multiple technologies such as
device-connectivity hardware, radio modules, network service and provisioning,
as well as application software and infrastructure, to create a winning
solution for the end customer.

“Recognition in Connected World’s Value Chain awards highlights Novatel
Wireless’ transformational contributions to the M2M market, benefiting all
types of organizations looking for innovative ways to grow,” said Joe
Peterson, VP of Worldwide Sales for Novatel Wireless. “We’re excited about our
collaboration with Net Irrigate and Mesh Systems and committed to offering the
most advanced M2M solutions in the market.”
