Teletouch Interactive Group Renovates Websites for Hawk Retail and Web Store Customers

Teletouch Communications, Inc. (OTC: TLLE) Hawk Electronics division, a leading cellular services provider and consumer electronics retailer, today announced that its interactive group recently completed adding more than 20,000 products to its primary consumer-facing online websites: www.hawkelectronics.com and www.hawkexpress.com, and will be adding another approximately 300,000 product SKU’s in early 2009. The sites, which are hosted by Teletouch, are supported by a newly completed integrated database architecture and Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq: ADBE) Adobe® ColdFusion® 8 software-based content management system providing for common product information, but also allowing for product and pricing differentiation between the two online brands. Completed just in time for the holiday shopping season, the updated HawkElectronics.com kicked off its new look with a special offer on a high-end GPS device, the Delphi NAV300, selling through nearly 1,000 units in its first few days online.

Teletouch President and Chief Operating Officer, T. A. “Kip” Hyde, Jr. stated, “By leveraging our existing PCI Wholesale division distribution relationships, we now have the ability to offer our customers a vastly larger catalogue of consumer electronics products than ever before. Our prices online are generally competitive to big-box retail, with the added advantage of allowing our Hawk Electronics’ customers a unique ‘Bill-To-Mobile’ feature, whereby purchases can be billed to their Hawk cellular accounts, with monthly payments at no interest over three, six or twelve month periods. Our HawkExpress web store already has a national footprint. We look forward to further growth for both Hawk Electronics and Hawk Express from the online distribution channel.”

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
