Montreal, QC – Siyata Mobile Inc. (TSX-V:SIM / PINK:SIMFF) (the “Company” or “Siyata”) is pleased to announce that it has received initial purchase orders for its Truckfone device from Barrett Steel Limited (“Barrett Steel”) through its UK Distribution partner The Chameleon Group. Barrett Steel is the UK’s oldest and largest steel stockholding company with global operations and a large commercial fleet of 400 trucks.
Siyata is witnessing strong demand from end users who need to upgrade their current device to a 3G compatible device as mobile operators around the world are systematically shutting down 2G networks. For example, TELUS informed its commercial clients that they are shutting down the 2G/CDMA network on January 31st, 2017 and any devices using the 2G/CDMA networks will no longer receive service.
Marc Seelenfreund, CEO of Siyata, stated, “We continue to see strong demand for Siyata devices in the UK and are proud to have an established company like Barrett Steel as a customer.”
Siyata’s Truckfone and Voyager devices are the world’s first 3G connected-vehicle devices. The Company works with cellular operators and dealerships around the world to meet the needs of fleets requiring a solution for better connectivity, safer driving, and reliable asset tracking.
There are tens of millions of commercial vehicles worldwide that currently rely on 2G networks and two-way radio systems for their communication platforms. Siyata aims to target this market as they upgrade their communications hardware to be compatible with next generation networks and Push-to-Talk radio technology.
Siyata Mobile Inc. is a leading global developer and provider of a vehicle-mounted communications platform over advanced mobile networks. Through its newly acquired subsidiary, Signifi Mobile, Siyata also markets and sells Uniden® cellular signal boosters and accessories across Canada and the United States. Siyata’s customers include cellular operators, commercial vehicle technology distributors, and fleets of all sizes in Canada, the US, Europe, Australia, and the Middle East.
Siyata’s “Connected-Vehicle” devices and accessories are specifically designed for professional fleets such as trucks, vans, buses, ambulances, government cars and more. Siyata aims to provide greater mobile connectivity for professional drivers and facilitate replacement of the current in-vehicle, multi device status quo with a single device that incorporates voice, data, and fleet management solutions.
