BrightSign, LLC is the industry leader in digital signage media players for use in places like retail stores, corporate headquarters, medical offices, museums, hotels and sports and entertainment venues.

Now, BrightSign's customers can easily activate their cellular-enabled devices on demand, using a self-service portal. In addition, the company can now offer coverage in new markets to new and existing customers, faster.
