Jackson, MS -- LEC, leaders in automation control engineering and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) enablement, has joined forces with TELUS, Canada’s world-leading communications and information technology company, to expand LEC’s award-winning iQ2 technology to the Canadian industrial marketplace.

iQ2 is LEC’s cloud-based, end-to-end IIoT platform solution that’s uniquely designed from an industrial automation engineering perspective to address individual needs and provide secure, customizable remote control, monitoring, and data collection to all areas of industry.

“With the necessity for cellular connectivity of our existing client base, and the growing demand for LEC technologies in Canada, aligning with TELUS is key to our continued geographical expansion in North America,” states Brian Rosema, VP of IIoT for LEC. “The robust nature of the TELUS network, and ability of incorporating TELUS connectivity into LEC’s secure private network has made this a clear and highly strategic decision. Offering clients in oil and gas, water/wastewater, manufacturing, and utility verticals access to LEC’s iQ2 platform technologies in Canada is highly advantageous for both of our organizations.”

TELUS was the first national carrier in Canada to launch a dedicated network for IoT devices, and offers the country’s most comprehensive LTE-M coverage. TELUS LTE-M and NB-IoT networks will be fully compatible with 5G technology, enabling the LPWA solutions designed and deployed today to do even more tomorrow.

“TELUS’ world-class LTE-M low-power wide-area network was purpose-built to connect IoT devices, offering secure, reliable connectivity with carrier-grade security in locations across Canada,” said Michael Cihra, VP of IoT at TELUS. “We are proud to work with LEC to deliver clients of their popular iQ2 platform the connectivity they need in Canada to drive results for their businesses.”
