IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Location Based Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB:LBAS) announced that its 3G LBT-886 has passed the network testing performed by AT&T’s Lab. This certification is the final hurdle in a series of tests which included FCC, IC and PTCRB. The LBT-886 has now met all of the requisite government and network requirements and is available for sale to the public in the US and Canada. Other markets requiring 3G devices are Australia, Japan and Hong Kong.
“It’s taken us almost a year to receive all of the necessary certifications”
A 3G version of the LBT-886 opens up opportunities to sell through AT&T’s retail sales stores. The 3G 886 could be sold in AT&T’s retail stores in the US as a vehicle tracking device.
“It’s taken us almost a year to receive all of the necessary certifications,” said LBT CEO, Dave Morse. “Now that the 886 has passed all tests, we can focus on selling the device to the consumer and commercial markets in the US and Canada. Ideally, we would like AT&T stores to sell our 886 vehicle device this holiday season.”
The LBT-886 is a rugged, highly versatile device that can either be used as a vehicle product, with a wiring harness that attaches directly to an external battery, or as a stand-alone device for asset tracking which is powered by its own internal battery. If used as a free-standing device, the 886 can last for up to 4 months on a single charge.
The 886 vehicle product will supplement LBT’s current vehicle product.
