31 August 2016 RFI Technology Solutions (RFI) has acquired the assets of Maxon, Australia’s leading cloud-based 3G and 4G wireless network devices and telemetry solutions company. This acquisition will enable RFI to help accelerate our efforts to deliver the next generation of M2M telemetry and Internet of Things solutions. The team, the products and the vision behind the Maxon name were instrumental in RFI first taking on a distribution relationship with Maxon in 2015.
This acquisition now sees a much deeper involvement, with RFI responsible for the end to end production and delivery of the Maxon range to market. The Maxon range also provides access to cloud-based 3G and 4G wireless network devices and telemetry solutions. RFI plans to continue the development and release of new generations of the Maxon radios and modem devices supported in the market for almost 30 years.
RFI will also maintain and develop the maXcloud (maXwan, maXvpn and maXconnect) services pioneered by Maxon to provide secure access, control and data services to Maxon devices in the field.
“This acquisition is an exceptional fit for RFI, adding to our technology solutions portfolio by providing us with the technology and resources to progress our plans in the M2M and IoT solutions space, said Scott Magee, RFI’s CEO. “The Maxon brand has represented industry leading M2M solutions and will be a true complement to our business.”
