Chapel Hill, NC, October 25, 2007. - USAT Corp. today congratulates its client International Truck and Engine Corporation, on winning a 2007 3G A-List™ Award for its outstanding mobile broadband implementation. Hosted by Qualcomm, the 3G A-List Awards program recognizes innovative and successful enterprise wireless data solutions based on 3G CDMA standards (CDMA2000®/EV-DO and WCDMA/HSPA). At the fifth annual 3G A-List Awards, held during CTIA Wireless I.T.® & Entertainment 2007 in San Francisco, International Truck and Engine was honored as a winner in the Manufacturing Category for their innovation in implementing a wireless solution to bring inefficiencies to automotive engine performance in pre-production vehicles.
International Truck first contacted USAT Corp. to integrate a wireless solution with an ETAS engine data acquisition device. USAT Corp. worked closely with ETAS to design a working interface, whereby International Truck engineers can gather critical test data over–the–air instead of via a manual download using a laptop computer.
"Increased efficiency was the goal with the wireless project, and International Truck and Engine has achieved it through not having to physically deploy an engineer to acquire data manually to every test site. USAT Corp. is pleased for our role in enabling this innovative solution in the U.S. automotive industry," says Beverly McRae, Director of Sales for USAT Corp.
"The collaboration of USAT Corp. and International Truck has led to a 3G mobile broadband solution that truly earned top ranking in their award category," said William F. Davidson, senior vice president, global marketing and investor relations for Qualcomm. "Through its work with USAT Corp., International Truck and Engine has realized new levels of efficiency, productivity and ROI, putting them ahead of the curve in the automotive manufacturing field. Qualcomm is pleased to recognize both companies for their remarkable achievements."
The annual 3G A–List Awards honor outstanding enterprise wireless implementations that demonstrate creativity and innovation, overall business impact and how the winning company or organization exceeded business objectives by introducing higher return on investment, lower operating expenses or increased user satisfaction. This year, Qualcomm presented awards to 15 organizations from around the world for their successful deployment of 3G mobile enterprise solutions.
