Apisphere Selected for Sierra Wireless - Wavefront Developer Program.

BERKELEY, Calif. -- Apisphere, Inc., a leading provider of location-awareness services for mobile business applications, today announced it has been selected as one of nine companies to participate in the second phase of the Sierra Wireless - Wavefront Developer Program. The program provides Apisphere with the opportunity to develop a customized application for users of Sierra Wireless mobile broadband adapter products.

The Sierra Wireless - Wavefront Developer Program is designed to find best-in-class enterprise or consumer applications that take advantage of the mobile broadband and GPS capabilities built into Sierra Wireless PC cards, ExpressCards, and USB modems. The program started with an open invitation to submit written applications in all sectors of the developer community, including location based services (LBS), new media and social networking. The second phase narrowed the 50 submissions to nine finalists who are creating working prototypes of the proposed applications.

"Apisphere is enabling mobile devices with location-awareness services and we are honored to be among the top nine companies participating in this program," said Craig Harper, CEO, Apisphere, Inc. "The Sierra Wireless - Wavefront Developer Program is an outstanding opportunity for Apisphere to demonstrate its technical expertise to an industry leader."

Apisphere is designing an application based on its Geo-Enabled Mobility (GEM) platform that will bring location-awareness functionality to Sierra Wireless products to significantly enhance the productivity and efficiency of businesses that depend on mobile applications. Based on a Software-as-a-Service model, the application will be scalable and easily customized to support the unique requirements of different businesses.

The Sierra Wireless - Wavefront Developer Program is also supported by NAVTEQ and DigitalGlobe, which have provided tools and access to data to assist participants in developing their prototypes. Winners will be selected in October and will be considered for promotional consideration and incorporation within Sierra Wireless products, which are distributed by mobile network operators worldwide.
