Everynet and Crown Castle Launch LoRaWAN-IoT Network in the US

Everynet, the world’s largest network operator for national LoRaWAN networks, has launched a national LoRaWAN-IoT network in the United States. To do this, they partnered with shared communications infrastructure provider Crown Castle. The first phase of the network rollout includes 36 metropolitan areas and key logistics corridors across the United States.

The companies hope to go live before the end of 2021. Everynet networks are already live in Brazil, Indonesia, Spain, United Kingdom, Italy, Puerto Rico, Ireland and Iceland. Everynet also participates in the LoRa Alliance global association that offers roaming to more than 27 countries across the globe.

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.

The network will utilize tower assets from Crown Castle – currently the largest provider of communications infrastructure in the United States. Featuring more than 40,000 cell towers and nearly 80,000 route miles of fiber, Crown Castle has the existing infrastructure and deployment capability for the long-term buildout of this network. A 15-year commitment ensures that LoRaWAN customers can easily go live on the network to monetize their deployments such as smart sensors or monitoring tools.

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 semiconductor supplier Semtech.

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.

Everynet welcomes any platform provider, device maker and solution provider to take advantage of the new network through its Ethingz Ecosystem Partner Program.LoRaWAN-IoT Network
