Wi-NEXT is proud to announce that their Low Power SmartNode was awarded the 2014 M2M Evolution IoT Excellence Award by TMC and Crossfire Media. This award honors innovative products that can better deduce, infer and directly gather data from sensors and systems, thus enabling better business decisions.

Wi-NEXT’s Low Power SmartNode is an innovative low-power Wi-Fi device that can monitor the parameters of machinery ( i.e. power consumption and temperature ) through a Wi-Fi mesh connected network of sensors. This enables retrofit machines and equipment to easily connect to the Internet with a simple and cost-effective module.

Wi-NEXT is a leader in industrial edge networking and computing devices known as Industrial Edgeware and has strong roots in industrial networking solutions. Powered by their patented WiseMesh® network operating system, Wi-NEXT has built the first Industrial Edgeware Wireless Platform to power Fog Computing.

“Predictive maintenance is being championed by the likes of GE, Bosch and other large manufacturers – but it is enabled by technologies that allow end customers to employ similar approaches regardless of their equipment type. Our Low Power SmartNode® enables our clients and partners to put easily their decision-making and analysis platform next to the controlled devices . The low operating cost, reliability and stability makes it an instant winner,” said Nicola De Carne, CEO of Wi-NEXT.

“It is my pleasure to recognize Wi-NEXT with a M2M Evolution IoT Excellence Award for its excellence in innovation,” said Carl Ford, CEO & Community Developer, Crossfire Media. “As a leader in this rapidly evolving industry, I look forward to seeing Wi-NEXT’s future successes.”

The winners of the 2014 M2M Evolution IoT Excellence Award will be highlighted in the first quarter edition of M2M Evolution Magazine and on http://www.m2mevolution.com.
