Rogers taps Wyless for Canadian M2M
Canadian carrier Rogers Wireless said Thursday that it has signed up M2M services provider Wyless to deliver a ‘one stop shop’ catering to various vertical markets.
Wyless offers an M2M platform designed to help customers develop and deploy applications across a broad range of vertical markets, including transportation, retail, oil and gas, government, financial, healthcare, manufacturing and education. The agreement with Rogers is expected to drive growth in application deployments across these sectors in the Canadian market.
Moreover, Rogers business customers looking to deploy M2M applications outside of Canada will additionally benefit from having access to the Wyless Managed Network and Porthos Management Platform to cost efficiently deploy offerings in the US and worldwide.
Shelby Noakes, VP business development, Americas at Wyless, said, “The Canadian market is obviously very strategic to the USA, and with both 2G, 3G, GSM as well as LTE services available across the Rogers network, we felt strongly that Rogers would be the right operator to partner with to provide local connectivity to US and Global Enterprises looking to quickly and easily deploy M2M solutions into Canada.”
