D6 LABS, AN INTERNET OF THINGS STARTUP, WINS INNOVATOR OF THE YEAR AWARD FROM THE JOURNAL RECORD IN OKLAHOMA CITY
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK, August 26-- Today, D6 Labs, a start-up company specializing in hardware solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT) technology space, announces that it has received ‘Innovator of the Year’ award from The Journal Record, a business publication serving Oklahoma City businesses.
“This is an exciting time for D6 Labs because not only has The Journal Record acknowledged our product innovation, but the market is taking notice as well,” stated Steve Montgomery, Founder and CEO, D6 Laboratories. “The Whisker IO product finally makes wireless sensor networks practical. “
"D6 Labs appreciates being recognized as an innovator and entrepreneur, this comes at a perfect time for us as our products are geared to revolutionize the wireless sensing industry,” said John Colbert, President of D6 Laboratories. “This puts D6 Labs at the leading edge of the Internet of Things space.”
Whisker IO is innovative simply because the WSN industry suffers from high-energy consumption from end-node devices, making them too expensive or too complex. D6 Labs solution solves this problem through its design of a low-power, long-range wireless end node module that can transmit over 4 miles and last up to five years on just two AA batteries. This is a significant advancement in technology for what industry analysts’ project will be a trillion dollar market.
Wireless sensor networks (WSN) are on the rise with the advent of new technology. In fact, Research and Markets industry analyst firm recently added an industrial WSN report to their offerings (Research and Markets, 2015) showing the increased attention to the industry. Wired sensor networks are not new--having been used for years in manufacturing; however, WSNs have emerged with advancements in wireless technology. Low power and long range radio frequency (LoRa) technology is primed to take WSNs to a new level.
