NEW HOPE, PA -- M2M Spectrum Networks LLC said it is planning to build and operate what it's calling the first licensed, all-IP, wireless machine-to-machine network in the United States. Vending machine connectivity will be among M2M network's applications.

M2MSM said the network rollout will occur in multiple phases, with several trials scheduled in the second quarter of 2014. It is expected to cover 75% of the U.S. population by the end of 2015, and 95% by the end of 2016. The company claims to be the first to have sourced licensed radio spectrum to build a new ubiquitous, nationwide network.

"Our technology offers a timely and highly cost-effective way to deliver M2M solutions that fit customers' needs across the 'Internet of Things'," said M2MSN chief executive Barclay Knapp. "We will be offering our customers a game-changing network, purpose-built and optimized solely for M2M applications, with innovations in provisioning, monitoring, pricing and other dimensions not yet seen in the marketplace."

M2M Spectrum Networks has partnered with wireless companies, including Commdex, Crown Castle, Raveon, TrueNet, 4G Unwired, and Powder River. These partnerships will make it possible to overcome system complexity, reduce costs, and reduce time to market, according to officials.

In addition to providing both "high site" and "mesh network" saturation coverage of the U.S., M2M Spectrum Networks said its MDNA (market data network architecture) architecture provides seamless interfaces to existing M2M applications and M2M application providers.
