Gaithersburg, MD, Nov. 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — mPhase Technologies, Inc. (OTC Pink: XDSL) (“mPhase” or the “Company”), a technology company developing the mPower 5G-enhanced electric vehicle (EV) charging network and consumer engagement platform, today announced that it has signed agreements with members of the Virginia Asian American Store Owners Association (VAASOA) to add approximately 1,440 mPower locations in the State of Virginia. The mPower ecosystem is an integrated set of platform technologies consisting of consumer engagement software, EV charging, and 5G connectivity designed to create a beneficial link between consumers and retailers transitioning to an EV-centric future.
After an assessment period, appropriate sites will be added to the mPower ecosystem via the consumer engagement platform and/or the installation of EV charging stations and 5G, with the configuration dependent upon specific site characteristics. mPhase will generate monthly recurring revenue from each member site. The mix of locations includes convenience stores, gas stations, restaurants and other businesses primarily focused on serving mobile consumers.
“Preparing for the changes that EV will bring is a major topic for our members, so the mPower ecosystem offers us a great solution set that can serve the needs of many different kinds of companies in our association,” said VAASOA Chairman Minesh Patel. “We really like the flexibility of this platform, which allows each site to tailor its configuration to suit the specific characteristics of their facility and property. This is really important, because even members without the physical space to install EV charging can still participate in a network dedicated to supporting the EV experience. The timing could not be better as many businesses begin the task of reinventing themselves for this changing retail environment. mPower gives us a great new set of tools to be successful in that transition.”
“Today’s release replicates our recent announcements in Florida and Illinois and is further proof of the scalability and repeatability of our platform,” explained mPhase CEO Anshu Bhatnagar. “Travel and commerce do not vary much state to state and region to region, so our target customers face the same issues in every market. When we show our solutions to these owner/operators, many of whom own chains of stores built over a lifetime, we see real relief at finally having a turnkey program to future-proof their businesses. With the addition of each new region our ecosystem grows more powerful, benefiting every member location via crossover customer traffic. This concept is resonating with store associations who understand the importance of a connected ecosystem to capture and create in-store visits.”
mPhase will receive recurring revenue from each mPower site, which will vary depending upon the equipment configuration and other terms specific to each location. The number of EV and 5G installations will be determined after site surveys, but is expected to be sufficient to create comprehensive mPower coverage in the State of Virginia. mPhase is in talks with other entities in the state to expand its network even further, making Virginia a key area of focus during the initial roll-out of the mPower ecosystem.
