First Major Order Received for Single End-Use Customer to Equip Yellow School Buses in the United States
Montréal, Québec – July 16, 2018 – Siyata Mobile Inc. (the “Company” or “Siyata”) (TSX-V:SIM / OTCQX:SYATF) is pleased to announce it has received its first US purchase order for its 4G/LTE Uniden® UV350 in-vehicle device. The order is for a single end-use customer to equip their fleet of yellow school buses, as part of a contract valued at over $925,000.
Marc Seelenfreund, CEO of Siyata Mobile states, “We are very pleased to substantiate our recent US launch with an order of this magnitude from a single end-use customer, representing a major milestone for all parties involved. With an estimated 450,000 yellow school buses in the US, this vertical alone represents an enormous opportunity for Siyata and its partners to gain market share from antiquated land mobile radio systems that have traditionally supplied the yellow school bus and first responder market.”
In addition to pending purchase orders, several new yellow school bus trials have commenced in counties adjoining Siyata’s existing customers, each representing an opportunity of similar or greater magnitude giving a robust sales pipeline for additional potential orders in Q3 and beyond.
Yellow school buses transport the future of America and are considered a place of refuge and evacuation in times of emergency. However, communication will often be lost with the driver when a bus leaves the network coverage area of a traditional land mobile radio (LMR) system, putting the children, evacuees and passengers at further risk. The UV350, supported by a carrier grade network, not only has nationwide coverage, but allows first responder groups from different agencies and jurisdictions to communicate seamlessly with each other during large scale responses.
Recently, the city of San José, became the first US municipality to fully join America’s dedicated public safety communications platform creating a create a new standard for public safety. This full deployment, marks what the Company believes is the beginning of a mega-cycle to augment and replace traditional LMR (Land Mobile Radio) systems with Push-to-Talk Over Cellular (PoC) solutions. Siyata is the first and only vendor of a dedicated in-vehicle 4G/LTE device that meets the needs of first responders’ in-cabin requirements. Further news on America’s dedicated first responder network can be found here.
Supported by a nation wide network, the Uniden® UV350 is the world’s first and only in-vehicle 4G/LTE smartphone with mission critical sound quality, carrier grade PTT, voice, text, video, and data applications built into a single device, equipping first responders with the immediate response tools they need to protect the ones they serve.
