(TSXV: BEW) (OTCQB: BEWFF) (“BeWhere” or the “Company”), an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) provider of asset tracking and connected sensors solutions, is pleased to announce its plans for the world largest mobile conference, MWC19. The conference takes place in Barcelona from February 24th to the 28th.
The GSMA’s Mobile World Congress is the world’s largest exhibition for the mobile industry, incorporating a thought-leadership conference that features prominent executives representing mobile operators, device manufacturers, technology providers, vendors and content owners from across the world. BeWhere Inc. attended last year’s conference with over 100,007 attendees which facilitated the introduction of prospects, discovered new trends and business cases; and increased awareness for the M-IoT industry and the company through a technology demonstration of a “smart punching bag”, which was highlighted on CNN International.
BeWhere’s M-IoT technology will once again be featured at the GSMA’s Innovation City and Ask the Expert via live demonstrations, to provide an interactive, hands-on display which engages conference attendees and simultaneously showcase the power of M-IoT technology and the Company’s devices and solutions. The interactive M-IoT demonstrations include the “Rowing Machine Challenge” and the “Shooting Range Challenge”; which test participants strength and accuracy skills while showcasing the benefits of low-power wide-area connected sensors.
In addition, BeWhere’s CEO, Owen Moore, will participate in a panel discussion, with representatives from Nokia, Ericsson and T-Systems, to discuss the value proposition of M-IOT for network infrastructure providers, mobile network operators and device / solution providers. This 8th annual M-IOT Summit on February 24th attracts a broad attendance of influential industry experts.
Orange S.A., one of the largest European telecommunication company, will be BeWhere’s local operator partner and will be providing the Company with LTE-M connectivity in Barcelona for the demonstrations and challenges of its M-IoT solutions. Orange is also the most advanced carrier in LPWAN deployment in Europe and has already tested BeWhere’s M-IoT solution on both its LTE-M and NB-IoT networks.
“BeWhere devices makes the best use of Orange’s LTE-M network and Live Objects platform to provide a low cost and low power solution for monitoring and tracking industrial assets. The solution includes a versatile cloud application that enables rapid launching of proofs of concept and trials for many different IoT use cases”, said Luc Savage, VP Devices Enterprise IoT at Orange.
