Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI), (“Vuzix” or, the “Company”), a leading supplier of Smart Glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technology and products, today announced the launch of a turnkey Vuzix Smart Glasses Remote Worker Connectivity Bundle on Sprint, a leader in IoT and telecommunications innovations.
This bundle, which is expected to become commercially available in December 2019, consists of cellular connectivity bundle (or package) on the Sprint Curiosity™ IoT core network inclusive of an Inseego MiFi 8000 hotspot, Vuzix Remote Assist, a see-what-I-see SaaS solution and one of three Vuzix smart glasses options – Vuzix M300XL, Vuzix Blade or Vuzix M400.
The Vuzix Smart Glasses and the Inseego MiFi 8000 hotspot will come pre-kitted and connected to the Sprint Curiosity™ core IoT network providing a turnkey solution for enterprise customers and their remote workers. These connected ready to go to work smart glasses bundles will provide a range of services that drive operational efficiencies for enterprise and SMB customers including improved uptime and seamless network connection.
Vuzix’ Smart Glasses on the Sprint Curiosity™ core IoT network will utilize the industry’s first dedicated, virtualized and distributed core network coupled with an operating system purpose-built for billions of connected devices.
“The Curiosity™ IoT core network was designed to support AR/VR use cases and is the perfect match for Vuzix’ smart glasses to serve customers across multiple vertical market applications,” said Ivo Rook, Senior Vice President, IoT and Product Development at Sprint.
Through Sprint Curiosity™ IoT, Vuzix’ customers and channel partners will be able to provision the Vuzix Smart Glasses bundles and leverage Vuzix software services to develop or enhance their vertical market offerings. Sprint plans to test Vuzix Smart Glasses in their Supply Chain Connected Lab to provide real-time visibility including operational data analytics to increase warehouse efficiencies, and remote employee training.
“This new launch expands accessibility to our Vuzix Remote Assist subscription-based see-what-I-see SaaS offering for the remote worker,” said Paul Travers, President and CEO of Vuzix. “We see this relationship as much more than a product offering, as it represents a new avenue to develop integrated solutions that enhance the customer experience and drive better business performance.”
