Visionstate Launches Cellular-Based Version of WANDA(TM) via TELUS’ LTE-M Network
Updated: Apr 3, 2020
Edmonton, Alberta, May 16, 2019 - Visionstate Corp. (TSX-V: VIS) (“Visionstate” or the “Company”) today announced that, following a successful completion of a trial period, it has entered into an agreement with TELUS, one of Canada’s largest telecommunications companies, to introduce cellular connectivity into its customized WANDATM Internet of Things (IoT) solution, through Visionstate’s exclusive distribution partner, Bunzl Canada Inc. The agreement enables Visionstate to sell a plug-and-play version of WANDA that leverages the power of TELUS’ LTE-M network, which was built specifically for IoT device connectivity. This will help to decrease deployment times and expand WANDA’s market potential in diverse locations.
Typically, installations have relied on Wi-Fi connection which, despite being a good option, is not always available at the installation locations. As a result of a number of tests, Visionstate produced a cellular-based connectivity solution for its WANDA product that can now be installed without the need to configure wireless networks in the area of installation, which significantly reduces the roll-out time.
John Putters, CEO of Visionstate, comments: “We are extremely delighted to announce this agreement with TELUS and are excited about the launch of the cellular-based version of WANDA. The implications of the new connectivity solution include faster roll out times, more flexibility in how WANDA communicates to the Internet, as well as a dedicated management portal administered by Visionstate.”
WANDA is Visionstate’s unique Internet of Things touch-screen solution, the first device of its kind to replace old-fashioned paper-based reporting. Installed in high-visibility areas, WANDA not only increases public perception of cleanliness, it also ensures better customer service and inventory control, increases employee accountability and provides real-time analytics on resources used.
