SAN DIEGO, February 14, 2011 - Novatel Wireless, Inc. (Nasdaq: NVTL), a leading provider of intelligent
wireless networking solutions, today announces the next-generation of
Enfora's Spider(R) AT asset tag family of products. Enfora was recently
acquired by Novatel Wireless and is now introducing the next-generation of
the Spider AT Intelligent Asset Management Solutions designed to manage,
monitor and track high-value enterprise assets. The new Spider AT 3000 & 4000
series of products has been designed to address the need to wirelessly
connect remote, un-tethered assets that are non-powered or only have access
to power on an occasional basis.

"The Enfora Spider AT family and N4A Communications and Management
Software platform has been specifically designed to enable easy and seamless
connection from the asset to the Enterprise," said Rob Hadley, CMO of Novatel
Wireless. "Through early customer engagements and deployments, Enfora has
taken the steps to enhance the Spider AT portfolio and we're excited to
report on enhancements to our industry leading performance and reliability
with our next-generation solutions."

The Spider 3010 is aimed at recovery applications and provides the
capability to track assets through frequent position reporting while still
optimizing battery life. The Spider 4000 provides the capability to tie into
an external power source, when available, and maintain long life on its
internal battery pack. As with other Spider AT products, the Spider 3000 and
4000 series are able to retrieve critical information about assets based on
user-defined alerts, specific events or geo-fences. The Spider AT 3000 is
IP68 rated and a version has been ATEX certified for intrinsic safety

Configured to work seamlessly with the Spider AT product family, the N4A
CMS(TM) platform provides a user-friendly environment to directly connect,
manage and configure wireless devices from existing enterprise applications.
Users are provided with a detailed view of their mobile assets, enabling
proactive management and systematic upgrades when needed. The CMS software
supports browser-based administration, enterprise standards-based interfaces
and firmware-over-the-air (FOTA) support. The Spider AT product and CMS
platform bring together the key hardware and software elements required to
enhance the rapid deployment of business applications while providing the
tie-in to existing IT infrastructure.
