Enabling IoT Networks

Wi-SUN enables large-scale outdoor IoT networks including applications such as asset management, environmental monitoring, agriculture, structural health monitoring and much more.

What are the benefits?

Ubiquitious & Scalable

Wi-SUN-based mesh networks have proven themselves for years in a range of harsh and remote environments across the globe.

Tens of millions of reliably connected endpoints demonstrate that a Wi-SUN-based IoT mesh network can achieve the ubiquity and scalability many IoT customers demand.


When an IoT network complies with industry standards like IEEE 802.15.4g, you as a network owner or operator will gain advantages.

One of the biggest advantages is that you are not locked into solutions from a single vendor.


Supports the latest IP-based security technologies for device authentication and encrypted communications.

Wi-SUN Alliance member companies are deploying globally tens of millions of compatible IoT devices so it is essential that a Certificate Authority can operate at this scale.

Gartner forecasts that endpoints of the IoT will grow at a 32.9% CAGR from 2015 through 2020, reaching an installed base of 20.4 billion units. The IoT is happening now and is to here to stay.
