Monnit Corporation announced that CRNhas named the wireless sensors company to its 2017 Internet of Things 50 list, which recognizes companies whose innovative offerings are helping connect objects, computing devices, infrastructure, data storage and data analytics that will transform our everyday lives.

Monnit was the only Utah-based company to be recognized in the “15 Coolest IoT Hardware Companies” category, which consists of other technology leaders such as Cisco, Dell, Intel and Samsung.

CRN recognized Monnit for its new IoTvantage™ partner program and ALTA® product line, which offers four times the wireless range (1,000+ feet, non-line-of-site) and much stronger battery life than traditional sensors (10+ years on two AA batteries). ALTA products also use Monnit’s new Encrypt-RF™, a bank level security, featuring 256-bit exchange and AES-128 CTR for all data messages. Monnit currently provides more than 50 unique sensor types for commercial and industrial applications as part of a complete, remote monitoring solution.

“We are honored to be recognized as part of this prestigious group for the third consecutive year,” said Brad Walters, CEO, Monnit. “This year we’ve made significant advancements in product and business development, targeting a more comprehensive, global partner program. Monnit’s new IoTvantage partner program is the ideal solution for channel players wanting to capitalize on the growing demand for Internet of Things solutions with our award-winning ALTA products.”

“The vendors on this year’s Internet of Things 50 list are brilliantly exploiting the deep creative potential of the IoT landscape and uncovering its most promising business opportunities, demonstrating what is possible and inspiring others to innovate,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “These 50 companies are at the vanguard of the IoT revolution, developing technologies that are set to transform the way we live and work.”
