The bundle, which is expected to become commercially available in December 2019, consists of a 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: The Vuzix M300XL, Vuzix Blade or Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses. 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.
“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.
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.”
