C-Chip Technologies 'North America' Announces Technology License Agreement with iMetrik Solutions

MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 12/28/06 -- C-Chip Technologies Corporation (North America), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Manaris Corporation (OTCBB: MANS) (FRANKFURT WKN: A0F5LD), today announced that it has entered into a technology license agreement with its technology partner iMetrik Solutions Inc.

Last spring, C-Chip, in partnership with iMetrik, launched the Credit-Chip 200G, a GSM-based product developed by iMetrik, with a complete web-based "locate and disable" platform, for the North American used car market. The relationship with iMetrik has been a key factor in the development of the Credit-Chip product and has allowed C-Chip to provide its customers with a reliable solution. To date, C-Chip has shipped in excess of 10,000 units of the Credit-Chip 200G.

Building upon the relationship, C-Chip has entered into an agreement with iMetrik whereby iMetrik will have the exclusive right to manufacture and sell products based on the GSM-based "locate and disable" technology platform for the "Buy Here Pay Here" (BHPH) market worldwide. In exchange, C-Chip will receive royalties for each product sold by iMetrik.

"We are very excited with our new arrangement with iMetrik. The purpose of consolidating our efforts via a unified sales channel is to develop economies of scale as well as a more focused sales strategy," said John Fraser, President and CEO of Manaris Corporation. "We strongly believe that this will benefit both companies."

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
