"X-TELIA worked closely with the City of Montreal to develop enhanced
community services by providing long range, low power digital signs,"
Eric Bourbeau, CEO of X-TELIA. "This project, among the first of its
kind in Canada, should greatly improve the lives of many commuters and
be an example of smarter transit for cities everywhere."

X-TELIA installed LoRa-based displays showing the next departing bus
time in bus shelters throughout Montreal. The solar powered displays
operate on X-TELIA's public LoRaWAN network. In the future, X-TELIA
expects to update the displays to show bus delays in real-time,
leveraging Semtech's LoRa Technology for tracking and up-to-the-minute
schedule changes. The program is among the first in Canada to utilize
LoRa Technology for smart transit including tracking and scheduling.

"LoRa Technology for smart transit can save commuters time and help the
city run more efficiently," said Vivek Mohan, Director of IoT in
Semtech's Wireless and Sensing Products Group. "X-TELIA's LoRa-based
solution is an excellent example for future system integrators as the
sensors are easy to install, run on a fraction of the power of current
solutions and provide real-time tracking even in densely crowded urban
areas. When these solutions are combined with other smart city
technologies, including smart parking and waste management, the future
of a city is transformed to create a smarter planet."
