The collar is part of a larger connected system with a smart feeder and door that connect through one app experience.
“The Wagz Smart Collar is truly innovative and we are very pleased to see our LTE technology inside this intelligent pet tracking solution that will be of great value to dog lovers everywhere,” said Danny Kedar, VP of Sequans’ IoT Business Unit.
“The Wagz Smart Collar, now connected by the always on and everywhere available LTE, means dogs can never get out of range or out of sight—this LTE for IoT application will find wide appeal.”
“We chose Sequans’ technology to add LTE connectivity to the Wagz Smart Collar, because Sequans is the leader in LTE for IoT and has had more experience connecting IoT products to the internet than any other company,” said Tom Mason, Chief Supply Chain Officer, Wagz. “We were very impressed with how easy it was to integrate Sequans’ Calliope technology into our solution and how quickly we were able to get it to market.”
