BALLSTON LAKE, N.Y., Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Sixnet, a global market-leader of machine-to-machine (M2M) networking solutions for industrial and wireless markets, today announced a new branding initiative in which all of the company's wireless product lines, including those from the acquisitions of JBM Electronics and BlueTree Wireless, will now become part of the Sixnet brand. This new structure will unify all of Sixnet's leading-edge wireless products under one common brand platform, making it easier for customers and partners to identify and order Sixnet products.

The acquisitions of JBM Electronics and BlueTree Wireless, combined with Sixnet's industrial connectivity solutions, form a comprehensive portfolio of industrial and commercial wireless networking solutions designed for a wide range of markets and applications. In addition to harsh industrial and outdoor environments such as power substations, water treatment, oil & gas, military, intelligent transportation systems and others, Sixnet solutions also deliver wireless connectivity for kiosks, ATM machines, point-of-sale (POS) terminals, lottery machines, landline backup, remote monitoring and control, fleet management, field service vehicles and other applications.

"As we continue to integrate and build upon the strengths of each product line, it is important to leverage the Sixnet brand and provide a common platform for our customers going forward."

Sixnet acquired JBM Electronics, a manufacturer of IP and cellular networking solutions, in September 2009 to provide secure, reliable wireless connectivity to meet the needs of the financial, retail and other markets with fixed cellular and landline backup/replacement solutions.

In 2007, the company acquired Blue Tree Wireless, a producer of ruggedized wireless modems and remote monitoring and control solutions for supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), telemetry and business continuity applications.
