The ALTA® by Monnit Advanced Edge Gateway Honored for Exceptional Innovation

SALT LAKE CITY, UT (March 30, 2021) – Monnit announced today that its ALTA® Advanced Edge Gateway received a 2021 IoT Evolution Industrial IoT Product of the Year Award from IoT Evolution World, the leading magazine and website covering IoT technologies.

“It’s exciting for us to receive this validation from experts in the Industrial Internet of Things—IoT Evolution World and TMC,” said Brad Walters, CEO, Monnit. “This recognition is significant because we’re committed to giving people the opportunity to efficiently, securely, and economically manage the vast amount of data at the edge of IoT ecosystems with our Advanced Edge Gateway.”

An Innovative IIoT Sensor-to-Cloud Solution for the Win

The Advanced Edge Gateway uniquely features the Message Queuing Telemetry Transport Secure (MQTTS) protocol for delivering IoT data from Monnit Wireless Sensors to cloud providers, such as Amazon Web Services® (AWS®), Microsoft® Azure, IBM Watson IoT®, and custom MQTTS servers.

The Ethernet-based device enables the rapid deployment of Monnit Sensors and direct transmission of data to the cloud without integrating third-party or in-house software. Among the Advanced Edge Gateway’s distinctive capabilities is its ability to “fingerprint” sensor data with a cryptographic validation stamp. The authenticated data is then transmitted to a cloud broker (or multiple brokers) in a standard format for analysis and instant action.

“The solutions selected for the Industrial IoT Product of Year Awards represent the diverse range of innovation driving the multi-billion-dollar IoT market today. It is my honor to congratulate Monnit for their innovative work and superior contribution to the rapidly evolving IoT industry,” said Ken Briodagh, Editorial Director for IoT Evolution.

“It is my pleasure to recognize the ALTA Advanced Edge Gateway, an innovative solution that earned Monnit the 2021 Industrial IoT Product of the Year Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “I look forward to seeing more innovation from Monnit in the future.”
