Atlanta, Austin, Charlotte, Miami, Phoenix and Portland are the first US cities to roll out Everynet’s LoRaWan internet of things (IoT) wireless network.
These cities are the initial wave of network operator Everynet’s national network roll-out that includes the top 36 metropolitan areas and key logistics corridors across the US.
As the US is investing in key infrastructure projects including roads, bridges, and lighting, cities have the ability to wirelessly connect a variety of IoT sensors to the cloud economically without having to build communications infrastructure.
The top IoT uses for the Everynet network include:
- smart cities: cities can monitor and manage lighting, streamline waste management services, manage flooding, and check air quality
- smart infrastructure: applications to monitor critical infrastructure including roads, pipelines, and transportation of materials. In addition, the network can be used to monitor freight rail, shipping ports, and subways, to streamline operations and gather data for predictive maintenance
- utilities: applications to remotely monitor, maintain and gather data on water systems, substations, smart grid reclosers, transformers, LPG gas and residential and commercial metering
- supply chain logistics: tracking and monitoring critical assets such as pallets, containers and goods. By managing the geo-location, cold-chain monitoring, humidity and shock, enterprises can effectively receive real-time data on the movement, condition and arrival of assets through the complete supply chain.
Everynet’s neutral-host business model enables mobile network operators, mobile virtual network operators, application service providers, managed service providers and internet service providers to offer carrier grade low-power wide area (LPWA) IoT services to their customers.
Everynet is deploying Tektelic Carrier Grade 64-Channel LoRaWanMega Gateways for the US national LoRaWan network in order to ensure the best radio performance and network reliability.

In addition, the LoRaWan open standards-based ecosystem provides companies with a selection of hundreds of devices and applications.
LoRaWan radio frequency technology, utilised by Everynet, is a widely adopted long-range, low-power solution that helps build ultra-low cost IoT projects worldwide. The company is inviting platform providers, device makers and solution providers to take advantage of the newly launched US network through its Ethingz Ecosystem Partner Programme.
