Rogers Communications (TSX:RCI.B) is launching a managed solution for Wireless Private Networks (WPN).

The company is partnering with Expeto for the initiative which is being launched through the company’s Rogers For Business division.

The technology offers large businesses a dedicated on-site wireless network platform to securely connect devices to their network.

It also prioritizes network traffic, controls sensitive data, and runs business applications.

The solution is aimed at businesses in industries including mining, oil and gas, utilities and manufacturing.

The company uses manufacturers as an example, and pointes out they can now connect more sensors, machines, and devices through a single private network, resulting in end-to-end visibility from product order through shipment and delivery.

“We are excited to partner with Rogers and provide the Expeto Enterprise First NeXtworking(TM) platform as a foundation for the WPN solution. The WPN solution seamlessly integrates with existing IT systems and provides business customers with the confidence of end-to-end security and control of their network and data.

With this industry-first breakthrough, Rogers once again is providing the innovation that will help its customers drive more competitive advantage and meaningful business outcomes for Canadian businesses investing in digital transformation and industry 4.0 initiatives,” said Expeto CEO Michael Anderson.

Common shares of Rogers Communications are up 0.27 per cent on the day, trading at C$60.98 at 11:42 am ET.
