CORONA, CA -- AVT Inc. announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has approved its application for a patent that relates to wireless networks for vending machines.

Patent No. 8,191,779 B2 was issued for AVT-developed technology regarding a unique wireless system designed to manage a network of remote vending machines.
