SAN DIEGO -- September 11, 2013

Novatel Wireless, Inc. (Nasdaq:NVTL), a leading provider of intelligent
wireless solutions, today announces it has won the Connected Life category of
the 2013 Mobile Merit Award with its powerful SA 2100 device, a programmable
M2M solution for commercial telematics such as fleet management, consumer
telematics, and fixed telemetry vertical markets. The SA 2100 is managed by
Novatel Wireless’ cloud-based N4A Device Manager.

The Mobile Merit Award recognizes  companies, individuals and technologies
that have shaped the way in which the world communicates. This year’s winners
were judged based on industry impact, innovation, technologies, social
importance, implementation and overall success factor and SA 2100 by Novatel
Wireless won as the best solution for the Connected Life category.

“We are honored to receive this award and industry recognition for our
generation-skipping integrated M2M solution,” says Peter Leparulo, CEO of
Novatel Wireless. “The SA 2100 is a versatile and a powerful integrated
solution allowing multiple connected life scenarios at once -- including
commercial telematics, in-vehicle connected car, and fixed telemetry
applications,” Mr. Leparulo continues.

The SA 2100 by Novatel Wireless is an advanced MiFi® Powered™ M2M device that
incorporates the industry leading MiFi technology platform with customizations
for multiple vertical markets and multiple connected life scenarios.

Designed for high bandwidth M2M applications, the SA 2100 makes it easier than
ever to connect Ethernet-based and Wi-Fi-enabled devices to the high speed
Internet via 4G LTE access. The SA 2100 provides always-on availability to the
mobile Internet with end-to-end encryption and authentication for virtually
any fixed or mobile application.

The SA 2100 connects machines with Ethernet, Wi-Fi, or micro-USB interfaces to
the mobile Internet in a simple way with high reliability and security. With
default settings preconfigured and self-registration enabled, the SA 2100 is
built with 'power it up, and ready to connect' in mind. Sized slightly bigger
than two decks of cards, the SA 2100 can easily fit in a wide variety of
installations. The internal antennas enable SA 2100's compact size, and
optional external cellular antennas provide flexibility when mounted in areas
with poor signal reception. Additionally, the battery backup provides business
continuity protection.
