TELUS has launched its LTE-M low-power wide-area (LPWA) network with initial coverage across British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada, plus major centres in Manitoba.

The TELUS LTE-M network delivers a strong wireless connection to IoT devices while requiring minimal power for each transmission, helping to prolong the battery life of connected devices. This is crucial for large-scale IoT deployments and devices located in remote areas as it saves time and maintenance resources while increasing device uptime. Whether it is a sensor in a farmer’s field to measure precise rainfall accumulation or a mobile tracking device that reports the location of a shipping container as it crosses the country, the TELUS LTE-M network provides secure, reliable connectivity for IoT deployments of any size.

IoT developers will play a key role in bringing Canada’s IoT ecosystem to life and TELUS is launching several tools to help developers drive Canadian innovation. These tools include:

 - TELUS LTE-M Starter Kit: this kit will enable developers and tech companies to rapidly prototype cellular connected IoT devices utilizing TELUS’s LTE-M network.

 - TELUS LTE-M Asset Monitor: a certified device that can plug into existing applications on day one to collect data such as location, motion, and temperature. Certified   - LTE-M modules: a selection of low-cost LTE-M modules that are approved for use with the TELUS network to accelerate deployment.

TELUS’ network provides the most comprehensive LTE-M coverage in Canada, allowing for endless possibilities for IoT applications. We can’t wait to see how our customers and developer partners leverage that power to improve Canadians’ lives with IoT technologies.
