Australian Telecomm Optus Showcases the Power of its OPTU5G
ROCHESTER, N.Y., Aug. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI), ("Vuzix" or, the "Company"), a leading supplier of Smart Glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technology and products, announced that Optus, one of Australia's leading wireless services providers, recently released a highly illustrative video showcasing the results of its OPTU5G network case study centered around the Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses and Vuzix Remote Assist, the Company's video collaboration SaaS offering.
The case study consisted of testing the OPTU5G nationwide 5G network by equipping a SpringCity solar engineer located in Perth, Australia with the Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses and connecting him to a remote expert located across the country in Sydney, Australia. The OPTU5G case study, done in collaboration with The AVR Lab, an Australian AR and VR advisory firm and exclusive Vuzix distributor, highlighted the benefits of connecting an experienced workforce easily and more reliably to a worker with less experience by using smart glasses for training and remote support amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Vuzix Smart Glasses are empowering Australian companies who need immediate solutions to remote worker and first responder challenges. The Vuzix M400 provides an out-of-the-box solution and we are immensely proud of the difference we are making," said Danny Gambaro, Director of the AVR Lab.
"Vuzix Smart Glasses are being used all over the world to support business continuity during the COVID-19 pandemic," said Paul Travers, President and CEO of Vuzix. "Smart Glasses powered by 5G networks like OPTU5G are a disruptive and effective tool to support enterprise customers safely and from a distance."
