LoRaWAN IoT Network Launched in the USA

July 2, 2021
Everynet and Crown Castle Launch IoT Network, starting with 36 Metropolitan Areas in the United States.

There have been several solutions presented for moderate-bandwidth long-range wireless applications, as Low-Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) technology is growing to be an important aspect of the Cloud infrastructure. One example can be found in the LoRaWAN open standards-based ecosystem, which provides Could connectivity to a range of devices and remote applications. Championed by Everynet, LoRaWAN is a long-range, low-power solution that helps build low-cost wireless IoT projects with reliability and longevity.

Everynet and Crown Castle announced the launch of a national LoRaWAN IoT network in the United States. The first phase will include the top 36 metropolitan areas, along with key logistics corridors across the United States, and is expected to go live by the end of 2021. A neutral-host business model will enable service providers to offer carrier grade LPWAN IoT services. In addition to the U.S, Everynet networks are live in Brazil, Indonesia, Spain, United Kingdom, Italy, Puerto Rico, Ireland and Iceland. Everynet is also a member of the LoRa Alliance association that offers roaming to more than 27 countries around the world.

“Expansion to the U.S. market is an important part of our global development. Our ultra-low-cost networks are already live across the globe, and we are pleased to enable nationwide, no CAPEX, turn-key IoT networks for our CSP partners,” said Lawrence Latham, CEO of Everynet. “Everynet networks deliver carrier grade connectivity, with built-in resilience, security and meaningful SLAs without any need for network CAPEX from our wholesale customers.”

Everynet will use Crown Castle’s tower assets, over 40,000 cell towers and nearly 80,000 route miles of fiber. “It was an easy decision to work with Everynet to build out their LoRaWAN IoT connectivity. We both see the long-term value of LoRaWAN in the U.S. and embrace shared infrastructure access for customers. We look forward to helping Everynet go live with a much-needed network,” said Paul Reddick, vice president of strategy, business and product development for Crown Castle.

Everynet also collaborated with Semtech, supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and creator of LoRa technology. “Our work with Everynet extends back many years and across many different geographies. As a company, we are committed to helping our customers address real world challenges and make the world a better, sustainable planet,” said Mohan Maheswaran, president and CEO of Semtech. “Everynet’s network launch will allow even more IoT applications and use cases leveraging LoRa to hit the U.S. market – everything from smart refrigeration and asset tracking to water conservation and utilities management.”
