TELUS doubles size of its Internet of Things Marketplace in less than a year

When TELUS announced the launch of its TELUS IoT Marketplace last year, the vision that the company had was a destination for businesses to quickly and easily deploy Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. At the time, it started with 38 IoT solutions.

Less than a year later, TELUS has today announced that it has added more than 30 IoT solutions since its launch. “IoT has clearly captivated Canadian business leaders by demonstrating it has tremendous power to make businesses more efficient and profitable,” said Shawn Sanderson, TELUS vice-president of Internet of Things. “By partnering with innovative Canadian startups, as well as leading IoT developers from the U.S and abroad, we’re ensuring that our customers have access to some of the most advanced IoT business solutions in the world.”

From smart restaurants to connected farms, the TELUS IoT Marketplace offers ready-to-implement wireless network solutions across varying industries to help businesses become more efficient, productive, and profitable.

One of the recent additions include public transportation wi-fi by Colony Networks — a service that provides any transportation company with a fleet of vehicles (e.g., taxis, buses and limousines) to cost-effectively deploy and manage a free Wi-Fi network for their customers. Waste removal fleet management by Focus, another offering on the Marketplace, allows municipalities to individually manage waste removal routes to include correct sides of the road and mark them complete in real-time to provide a better view of a day’s collection and status.
