Monnit’s flagship device is now its most-awarded innovation
SALT LAKE CITY — October 7, 2020 — The ALTA® Advanced Edge Gateway won “gold” in the second annual LEAP Awards. Seizing its second 2020 award in a marketplace brimming with innovation, the Edge Gateway took the “sensor & switches” category. The LEAP Award follows a prestigious IoT Innovations Award the Edge Gateway received from Connected World magazine.
“It’s gratifying to win two prestigious 2020 industry awards that recognize the Edge Gateway’s robust capabilities,” says Brad Walters, Monnit CEO. “Both wins also validate the efforts that have made the ALTA remote monitoring platform second to none.”
Edge Gateway: LEAPing to the Front of the Pack
The Leadership in Engineering Program (LEAP) Awards is hosted by Willing to Work Harder Media, a B2B group that’s home to highly respected publications such as Design World magazine. The LEAP Awards recognize products and components across the engineering spectrum. To claim a “gold,” “silver,” or “bronze,” a company must outline:
- How a product differs from competitive products.
- What advantages it provides.
- How it advances a design or machine.
- What problem(s) it solves.
“[A] task-oriented, sensor-centric approach provides an innovative product, making it accessible to small business and price-sensitive applications,” notes the LEAP Awards Judging Panel about the Edge Gateway. “Ease of deployment rather than conformity to large complex system constraints is a welcomed approach.” The global panel consists of engineers and academics leading their respective disciplines.
