Trilliant Named Smart City Solution Provider of the Year in 2020 IoT Breakthrough Awards Program

Annual IoT Breakthrough Awards Program Recognizes Standout Internet-of-Things Companies and Products

Raleigh, NC – (January 9, 2020) – Communications solutions leader Trilliant, a global provider of world class hybrid wireless communications technology for the IoT market, today announced that it has been selected as the winner of the “Overall Smart City Solution Provider of the Year” award in the 4th Annual IoT Breakthrough Awards program from IoT Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global Internet-of-Things (IoT) market today.

Trilliant’s Smart Energy Platform harnesses data and controls information coming in from multiple sensors across a smart city. The platform uses the company’s core communications system to collects data using virtually any kind of sensor, actuator or device from existing, new or legacy systems being operated across the city, providing tremendous value by enabling new business models and streamlined approach to existing challenges.

Trilliant’s technology also allows cities to create a private network that allows them to power unlimited amounts of IoT technology. Sensors enabled with LPWAN and SecureMesh can be installed on street lights, parking system, or transportation opportunities, enabling the data to flow seamlessly through the Smart Energy Platform and into Trilliant’s Smart Data Hub. With this approach, cities are given the ability to see a holistic view of their technologies using a single pane approach to data management and insight.

“Often, many departments across a city will deploy disparate technology solutions to enhance and automate aspects of their jobs,” said Andy White, Chairman & CEO, Trilliant. “Transportation will use sensors to monitor how full parking decks are, environmental services can track air quality, and public works can use networked street lighting to increase safety and drive cost savings across the city. Using Trilliant’s Smart Energy Platform, all of these views can be surfaced in a central Smart Data Hub. Our customers are experiencing a myriad of benefits and we are thrilled to receive this IoT Breakthrough Award for our innovation and success in the Smart City sector.”

The mission of the IoT Breakthrough Awards program is to recognize the innovators, leaders and visionaries from around the globe in a range of IoT categories, including Industrial and Enterprise IoT, Smart City technology, Connected Home and Home Automation, Connected Car, and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 3,700 nominations from companies all over the world.

“Trilliant is delivering a powerful value proposition for cities and municipalities whereby networking all of their components, city departments can now stop operating in a vacuum and start creating actionable outcomes to impact their operations and most importantly, the lives of their citizens,“ said James Johnson, managing director at IoT Breakthrough. “Trilliant embodies the spirit of the IoT Breakthrough Awards with their innovative smart city platform and we look forward to seeing what the future holds both near and far.”

Smart Grid is only the beginning of the smart city journey and a robust communication infrastructure lays the foundation for a smart city and IoT applications of the future. Trilliant’s multi-technology, global solution approach allows flexibility to securely scale a smart city with plug and play connectivity.
