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.

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. ‎
