TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE: BTW and BTW.WT.R
MONTREAL, QUEBEC, May 5, 2005 - Blue Tree Wireless Data Inc., a leading provider of commercial and industrial wireless modems for the rapidly growing worldwide M2M (Machine-to-Machine) market, today announced carrier certification of its newly launched CDMA (1xRTT) GPS Series and IP Series products on the Sprint network.
“These approvals are an important development in the commercialization of our new series of wireless modems. Early customer acceptance has been very positive and coupled with Sprint’s certification, creates exciting new sales opportunities for our carrier partners and mutual Value Added Resellers (VARs),” said Karl Hantho, Chief Operating Officer of BlueTree Wireless Data. “The nationwide wireless data network delivered by Sprint, one of the major CDMA carriers in the US, means that our customers benefit from expanded coverage for their mobile data and telemetry applications.
The certified products include the BlueTree IP Series 4200 and the BlueTree GPS Series 5200, rugged wireless data modems that are designed with Smart Connection Management. These intelligent devices can initiate their own wireless data connection to the cellular network, including the standalone GPS capability of the BlueTree 5200 to collect, store and forward GPS position data, without the need to attach a computing device. Both of these products have embedded applications intelligence that supports remote management over a wireless connection using BlueTree’s BlueVue Management Software.
