In a note published in the wake of Telits short statement today, Astaire Securities will revise its forecasts for the group following the release of their interims.

The machine-2-machine (M2M) technology specialist has been gaining sales momentum for its range of machine-to-machine M2M communications modules in recent months. The company landed a new contract in May, to supply M2M modules for new Audi infotainment systems.
And significantly, in April, its Wireless Solutions subsidiary reached a major sales milestone with the delivery of its two-millionth GE864 module. The GE864 models are suitable for use in large-volume applications in the telemetry and telematics industries, whilst the extra-rugged GE864-Auto version allows the integration into vehicles and other applications.
Astaire has previously stated that the ongoing consolidation in the sector was favourable to Telit with the recent acquisition of Cinterion Wireless Modules by Gemalt showing the attraction of the M2M market.
In July, Telit established a commercial partnership with France Telecom's Orange Business Services unit, under which Telit will distribute Orange's complete range of M2M solutions on the French market, by adding them to its own modules.
