MONTRÉAL, QC--(Marketwired - February 14, 2017) - Siyata Mobile Inc. (the "Company" or "Siyata") (TSX VENTURE: SIM) (OTC PINK: SIMFF) is pleased to announce that it has received a purchase order for $750k from Israel mobile provider Pelephone. Pelephone was Siyata Mobile's first customer five years ago and has purchased Siyata devices ever since. Pelephone recently announced the closing down of their 2G CDMA network within 2017 and Siyata will be upgrading their Motorola M800 devices to Truckfone and Voyager.
Siyata Mobile CEO, Marc Seelenfreund stated, "Pelephone has been a great customer and partner to us for many years. The closing of their 2G CDMA network means there will be an increasing need to replace outdated devices with Siyata's next generation devices. This is a large-scale opportunity for Siyata and we expect additional orders of this magnitude throughout 2017."
