Crown Castle enables Everynet’s national IoT network
Everynet, which bills itself as the world’s largest operator for national LoRaWAN networks, announced its plans for launching a LoRaWAN IoT network in the U.S.
Everynet is using Crown Castle’s tower assets, initially targeting the top 36 metropolitan areas and key corridors across the U.S. It’s expected to go live by the end of 2021.
One of the operative words used to describe the new offering is “carrier grade,” and yes, it will be competing with the IoT networks offered by wireless carriers in the U.S. In fact, wireless carriers could even become customers of Everynet, which expects to serve mobile network operators, MVNOs and ISPs….
Formed in 2014, Everynet already has experience establishing LoRaWAN IoT networks in other regions, including Brazil, Indonesia, Spain, United Kingdom, Italy, Ireland and Iceland….
Of course, Everynet can step in where some of the cellular 2G and 3G networks are stepping back. Like a lot of IoT solutions, it sees an opportunity to fill in where cellular operators are switching off old networks to make way for newer generations. Estimates vary, but by some accounts, 70 million devices are out there and in need of homes….
With Crown Castle, Everynet struck a 15-year commitment, ensuring LoRaWAN customers can monetize IoT deployments like smart sensors and monitoring tools.
Grassroots organization, Whatis5G.Info, has identified 9 ways that 5G and IoT will harm humans, the environment, and Earth:
- Health – The robust and growing independent science shows harms to our health from microwave radiation
- Privacy – The invasion of our privacy from the collection and mining of our digital data
- Cyber Security -The fast growing and devastating cyber security risks
- Environment – The harms to wildlife, particularly bees, butterflies and other pollinators
- Energy – The huge energy consumption to produce and power a wireless Internet of Things
- Brains and Humanity – The effects on our brains and humanity from humans increasingly inhabiting the cyber world
- E-Waste – The astronomical e-waste that will be generated from connecting virtually every “thing” to the Internet
- Conflict Minerals – 5G and the IoT will vastly grow our dependence on conflict minerals, which have brought about the death of close to 6 million people
- Ethics — Ethical issues arising from the IoT. New human rights laws are being being considered; how should humans relate to robots and AI? The blurring of what was once a clear delineation between technology and humans
