Written by: Philip Mason | Published:

Internet of Things-focused consortium the Wi-SUN Alliance has seen its membership increase by more than 60 per cent in the last year.

According to the figures released by the organisation, 70 new members - including product vendors and utility companies – have joined, taking total membership to 180. Wi-SUN Alliance describes itself as: “A global member-based association driving the proliferation of interoperable wireless solutions for use in smart cities, smart utilities and other Internet of Things applications.”

Speaking of the increase in membership, president and CEO Phil Beecher said: “Wi-SUN is the leading technology in large-scale outdoor networking and the most widely deployed IoT technology worldwide, and this is reflected in our growing member base.

“Independent research from Rethink Technology provides further support for Wi-SUN’s growing momentum, estimating that companies in the Wi-SUN ecosystem are set to enjoy continued growth at 20 per cent CAGR (compound annual growth rate), as mesh network technology begins to reach into new verticals and different business models are developed/implemented.”

He continued: “Working with organisations looking to design and connect interoperable wireless devices across smart cities and smart utilities, Wi-SUN Alliance has recently expanded its focus to reach more vendors and utility operators.”

Wi-SUN Alliance offers a four-tier membership, with categories including promoters, contributors, adopters and observers. It is open to all industry stakeholders.
