History[edit]

Wireless Matrix was founded in 1991 as Interprovincial Satellite Services Ltd. (Intersat). [2] Based in Calgary, Intersat provided wireless data and fax services to corporate markets. The company transformed itself into Wireless Matrix in May 2000 [3] and positioned itself in the wireless data services market with the acquisition of Reston, VA, based Norcom Networks Corporation from Norwegian telecommunications company Telenor AS. The company moved its headquarters to Virginia in 2005. The company began to evolve its business model towards the growing market for GPS and fleet management services in 2006. Through internal development and the acquisition of location technology companies MobileAria from Delphi (in 2006) [4] and Sapias, Inc. (2007), Wireless Matrix provides GPS fleet tracking services for 85,000+ subscribers.
