Novatel Wireless reached a deal in September to sell of its MiFi business for $50M to TCL, which shifts the company from a provider of wireless hardware to instead a provider of Internet-of-Things and telematics services. Novatel will change its stock symbol from its current MIFI symbol to INSG on November 9th.
