August 31, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
San Jose, CA, August 31, 2007—Connect One™, the device networking authority™ and a leading provider of Internet Protocol (IP) connectivity solutions for machine-to-machine (M2M) applications, today announced it achieved official International Standardization Organization (ISO) 9001:2000 certification, the internationally recognized standard for Quality Management Systems. That Connect One earned this certification reinforces its long-standing reputation as a superior developer, designer, and producer of integrated hardware- and software-based IP connectivity solutions.

ISO 9001:2000 certification emphasizes superior product quality and customer support. With over 1,000,000 iChips deployed in more than 50 countries, Connect One has achieved market leadership through consistently developing and maintaining successful connectivity solutions. With embedded chips, embedded device servers, and external serial device servers, Connect One enables manufacturers of any kind of non-PC device to easily, quickly and cost-effectively add secure IP connectivity to new and existing devices.

Outstanding and reliable customer service and support are also key differentiating factors that separate ISO 9001:2000 certified companies from the rest of the market. Connect One has exemplified these qualities year after year, developing a strong and loyal customer and partner base in a variety of industries including point-of-sale, security and surveillance, telemetry, telemedicine, gaming, and transportation.

“The ISO 9001:2000 certification publicly recognizes the quality of product and service that Connect One has built its reputation on,” noted Avi Provizor, Connect One, Ltd. Vice President of Operations. “Clearly, with the number of successful, long-standing deployments that Connect One currently has in the field with market leaders, we have consistently offered this level of product and service for many years. Formalizing our systems and gaining this public recognition gives us that much more of an edge over alternate solutions.”

The ISO 9001 model, one of three sets of stringent ISO 9000 quality assurance standards, establishes the requirements for organizations whose business processes encompass a highly diverse range of development, production, installation and service elements. ISO 9001:2000 provides the requirements for a quality management system aimed at helping organizations achieve customer satisfaction and continual improvement.

Connect One has developed cutting-edge, industry-leading secure IP networking solutions since it was founded in 1996. With many first-to-market developments to its name, Connect One has pioneered the Internet controller concept and is solely responsible for the AT+i protocol, the industry-standard protocol for connecting non-PC devices to the Internet which Connect One released publicly in 1998. Connect One’s most recent product, the iChip CO2128 provides secure and reliable TCP/IP connectivity for embedded devices and products to LAN, GPRS and WiFi interfaces.
