    Telit GNSS Module Enables High-performance Position Reporting and Navigation Solutions

    The SE868-V3 tracks GPS and Glonass or GPS and Beidou constellations simultaneously and is Galileo ready

    London UK, 15 April - Telit Wireless Solutions, a global enabler of the Internet of the Things (IoT), today announced the release of a new GNSS module, the SE868-V3.  This positioning module combines GPS, Glonass, Beidou, Galileo, and SBAS which enables the creation of high-performance position reporting and navigation solutions.

    The SE868-V3 can navigate to -162 dBm and track to -166 dBm, thereby providing improved performance in harsh environments. It is pin-to-pin compatible with the former SE868-V2 as well as the JF2. This advanced GNSS module can track GPS and Glonass or GPS and Beidou constellations simultaneously and it is Galileo ready.

    The 11 x 11 mm QFN package contains a powerful baseband processor, SQI Flash memory and GNSS chip with integrated Low Noise Amplifier (LNA). The ultra-sensitive RF front-end enables multi-GNSS indoor fix and hi-quality navigation in challenging outdoor scenarios such as dense urban areas.
    In addition the SE868-V3 supports ephemeris file injection (A-GPS) as well as Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS) to increase position accuracy. Its onboard software engine is able to locally predict short-term ephemeris starting from data broadcast by GNSS satellites received by the module and stored in the internal Flash memory.

    “The SE868-V3 is yet another addition to our positioning product portfolio, which is the result of over twenty years of experience in GNSS applications,” said Felix Marchal, Chief Product Officer, Telit. “Our products are compatible with the GPS constellation as well as its Russian counterpart Glonass and China’s Beidou.”

    Matomy Invests in Avenlo, a Market Leader in Data-Driven Email Marketing and Ad Targeting

    Avenlo brings real-time, data-driven ad targeting and media buying capabilities to Matomy

    TEL AVIV and TORONTO (April 15, 2015) —  Matomy Media Group  (LSE:MTMY), one of the world’s leading digital performance-based advertising companies, today announces a strategic investment in leading performance email marketing and ad targeting company Maven Marketing Group Inc., which operates under the name Avenlo. Matomy has acquired a controlling 70% interest in a newly formed company that has purchased the principal business activity and operations of Avenlo, with the option to acquire the remaining 30% of the company that is currently held by Avenlo over the next three years.

    Avenlo brings significant real-time, data-driven ad targeting and media buying capabilities to Matomy, and will materially strengthen Matomy’s existing email acquisition marketing solution. Forrester Research estimates that US advertiser spend on email marketing services will top $3.2 billion by 2019. Revenues in Matomy’s existing email marketing business grew 26% in 2014.

    Matomy’s strategic investment in Avenlo follows two other recent international partnerships. Last October, Matomy entered into a strategic affiliation with leading global advertising company Publicis Groupe, and last November, the company acquired mobile programmatic advertising platform MobFox, which now forms the core of Matomy’s mobile performance advertising solution.

    “One of our strategic priorities is to invest in companies that will further build the growth and value of our business,” said Ofer Druker, CEO of Matomy. “Avenlo has developed proven innovative technologies and solutions to email acquisition marketing, ad targeting and data management that will help fuel further growth in these important areas of our business. Data is a crucial element in performance-based advertising, and the data capabilities that Avenlo provides will assist Matomy across all of our media channels. We look forward to working with the Avenlo management team to help it expand into new international markets and together build the global leader in email acquisition marketing.”

    Founded in 2012, Avenlo’s state-of-the-art email placement optimization platform provides advertisers, agencies and media buyers with sophisticated multi-screen ad targeting capabilities that deliver awareness, engagement and consumer action across all devices. The Avenlo Connect Platform enables brand-safe email acquisition marketing campaigns on a cost-per-thousand impressions (CPM), cost-per-click (CPC) or cost-per-action (CPA) basis.

    The Avenlo email optimization platform utilizes large sets of customer data and performance-driven algorithms to improve advertisers’ reach and return on investment for performance-driven email marketing campaigns. Avenlo’s innovative consumer profile creation process combines live user actions with behavioral and demographic information and sophisticated statistical modelling algorithms to predict the likelihood for a specified consumer action.

    Avenlo works with many of the world’s leading marketing agencies and top brands across various industries, including telecommunications, travel, finance, insurance, online services and retail.
    “We’re excited to join forces with Matomy, given its track record of success in performance-based advertising,” said Joseph Freiman, co-founder of Avenlo. “Avenlo is poised for significant growth, and by leveraging Matomy’s international reach and infrastructure, as well as its customer network, we will continue to accelerate our growth and expand into new international markets through the deployment of innovative technology and capabilities.”

    Avenlo will continue to be led by its three co-founders — Rafael Alter, Chris DeDiego and Freiman — who will work in synergy with Matomy’s global management team.
