BeWhere Holdings Inc. Announces PTCRB Certification and The Commercial Launch in North America of the First of its Kind Mobile IoT Devices for Asset Tracking and Environmental Sensing using LTE-M

Toronto, ON, December 19, 2017 – BeWhere Holdings Inc. (TSX-V: BEW, OTCQB: BEWFF) (“BeWhere” or the “Company”) today announces it has received PTCRB industry certification for its Mobile IoT beacons, paving the way for the commercial launch of these cellular devices in North America.  BeWhere’s M-IoT beacons are small rugged devices, either solar or battery powered, that attach to non-powered mobile or fixed assets. The devices then transfer location and sensor data through Low Power Wide Area (“LPWA”) cellular networks to BeWhere’s secure cloud platform. BeWhere’s state-of-the-art sensors gather and deliver the environmental and situational information that gives visibility into the near real-time status of assets/equipment. Protected by industrially-hardened packaging, they measure location, light, battery, temperature, impact, barometric pressure and humidity from both the environment and the asset itself.  BeWhere’s innovative and flexible design allows sensors to be customized to fit customers’ specific needs such as flood detection.  BeWhere M-IoT beacons are the first of their kind cellular devices using LTE-M in North America and will be offered at a cost point never seen before, opening a large untapped market.

Owen Moore, founder & CEO, commented “Being one of the first to market is important and PTCRB certification is the last step in the commercialization process.  This is a very exciting milestone for our team and shareholders as it opens up a large market opportunity which I’m very excited for.”

With PTCRB certification, operators and device manufacturers are confident of a device’s interoperability with mobile networks.  Established in 1997 by leading wireless operators, PTCRB defines the test requirements to verify compliance with global industry standards for wireless cellular devices.  Member operators are committed to ensuring device quality through a rigorous verification process. Without PTCRB certification, manufacturers, run the risk that their devices will be blocked on wireless networks.

Kathleen Wynn Video Interview: This morning I was at Henry of Pelham in St. Catharines to see an innovative piece of technology.

This morning I was at Henry of Pelham in St. Catharines to see an innovative piece of technology. It seems a bit surprising that a winery would be the place to look for innovative tech, but ‎the small environmental monitoring device they're using will give the winery a big boost in production.The project is the impressive result of a collaboration between Henry of Pelham, BeWhere, Huawei, and Bell‎, and it's international partnerships like this that are the reason I go on trade missions. They create innovative opportunities here in Ontario. I'll be travelling to China and Vietnam later this month with over 100 delegates, and I can't wait to see the opportunities and partnerships that grow out of this mission. ‎

Internet of Things Seeks Ultimate Vintage in a Canadian Winery

  • Henry of Pelham testing BCE, Huawei, BeWhere technology
  • ‘We cannot control nature, so we have to work with nature’

A brisk wind sweeps through the Henry of Pelham winery in Niagara, Ontario, as a farmer inspects sensors on Cabernet Sauvignon vines in preparation for ice-wine season.

The sensors are part of a pilot project by BCE Inc.’s Bell Canada, Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei Technologies Co. and Toronto-based software company BeWhere Inc. in search of the ultimate vintage in one of Canada’s main wine-growing regions.

The sensors, which are a little larger than an iPhone, are charged by solar panels. They can capture data on things like temperature, water levels and humidity to improve vineyard operations, and help prevent vine disease. The technology consists of BeWhere sensors, Huawei chips and Bell’s new wireless network, “LTE-M,” a low power, wide-range network.

“We cannot control nature, so we have to work with nature,” Paul Speck, president of Henry of Pelham, said Thursday at the vineyard. “The more we understand what nature’s doing, the more we can react. This technology does that and it does that very inexpensively.”

If successful, the Internet of Things project will expand beyond vineyards to other agricultural industries. IoT refers to everyday tools — from automobiles to home appliances — connected to computer systems to be more functional. Many manufacturers have started bringing such devices to market and companies including Hitachi Ltd. and Dell Technologies Inc. have invested heavily in these platforms.

Bell, Huawei and BeWhere bring new Internet of Things solution to Ontario winery

Pilot project with Henry of Pelham Family Estate Winery an important step forward in developing IoT smart technology solutions for agriculture

PELHAM, ON, November 9, 2017 – Bell today announced it has partnered with BeWhere Technologies and Huawei to implement an automated Internet of Things (IoT) solution for the Henry of Pelham vineyard to help improve planning and sustainability programs. The announcement took place this morning with the three partners, alongside Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, who highlighted the partnership ahead of her trade mission to China.

“Ontario’s technology sector is leading the way when it comes to developing solutions that can promote sustainability, grow our economy and create opportunities for our people,” said Kathleen Wynne, Premier of Ontario. “This new IoT pilot shows the innovation that can be achieved when internationally recognized companies like Huawei partner with world-class Ontario businesses like Bell Mobility, BeWhere and Henry of Pelham and leverage the incredible talent of our province’s highly skilled workers.”

By using wireless environmental sensors connected to Bell’s LTE-M wireless network, the winery will be able to remotely monitor temperature and water levels, prevent vine disease, and ultimately improve the health of its plants, lowering operating costs and providing for years of maintenance-free data gathering.

Bell, Huawei et BeWhere mettent au point une nouvelle solution IdO pour un vignoble ontarien

Un projet pilote mené avec le vignoble Pelham Family Estate Winery représente un important pas en avant dans le développement de solutions de technologies intelligentes IdO pour le secteur agricole.

PELHAM (Ontario), le 9 novembre 2017 – Bell a annoncé aujourd’hui la conclusion d’un partenariat avec BeWhere Technologies et Huawei  pour mettre en œuvre des solutions automatisées utilisant l’Internet des objets (IdO) dans le vignoble Henry of Pelham, et aider ainsi cette exploitation viticole à améliorer sa planification et ses programmes de durabilité. L’annonce a été faite ce matin par les trois partenaires accompagnés de la première ministre de l’Ontario, Kathleen Wynne, qui a mis en avant cette collaboration dans la perspective de sa prochaine mission commerciale en Chine.

« Le secteur technologique de l’Ontario fait figure de chef de file dans le domaine de la conception de solutions qui favorisent le développement durable, contribuent à la croissance de notre économie et ouvrent des possibilités à nos concitoyens, a rappelé la première ministre. Ce nouveau projet pilote d’IdO témoigne des niveaux d’innovation qu’il est possible d’atteindre lorsque des entreprises de renommée internationale comme Huawei s’associent à des sociétés ontariennes de calibre mondial comme Bell Mobilité, BeWhere et Henry of Pelham et profitent du talent exceptionnel des travailleurs hautement qualifiés de notre province. » Continue reading
