Everactive Upgrades Evernet Protocol to Accelerate IoT Deployments

Wireless Technology is Highlighted in New Whitepaper that Showcases Battery-Free Connectivity Solution Designed for Long-Range, High-Density, and Low-Latency Applications

September 28, 2020

SANTA CLARA, CA – Everactive announced today significant improvements to its proprietary wireless networking protocol, a key enabler in the technology company’s category-defining batteryless Internet of Things (IoT) solutions.  Everactive recently released a new product line for continuously monitoring vibration signatures of industrial machinery that incorporates these wireless upgrades, all within the company’s patented battery-free system.

Evernet is an FCC-compliant wireless protocol that connects over 1,000 of its self-powered sensors to a single IoT gateway, boasting a non-line-of-sight range of 250 meters (820 feet) through wireless interference and physical obstacles.  In line of sight paths, the wireless range increases close to one kilometer (two-thirds of a mile).  With the company’s groundbreaking low-power networking scheme, each sensor is truly “always-on,” continuously listening and transmitting at configurable intervals, typically once per minute.  For reference, a duty-cycled Bluetooth Low Energy radio – today’s consumer standard for low power – consumes 5 milliwatts, while Everactive’s always-on wakeup radio requires a mere 0.0002 miliwatts.

“Evernet is designed around always-on, ultra-low power receiver technology that is 1,000x lower power than Bluetooth. Everactive is now in the third generation of development of these radios, which continue to improve on power, range, and data rate,” says Dr. David Wentzloff, Co-Founder and Co-CTO of Everactive and Professor at the University of Michigan.  “Such a technology is perfectly suited for IoT applications, which must reliably and continuously connect an extremely high volume of devices through many obstacles.  Evernet gives our customers the ability to deploy large-scale, and truly maintenance-free, networks across their facilities with as minimal an infrastructural footprint as possible,” concluded Wentzloff.

According to its recently released whitepaper, Everactive’s breakthroughs in wireless networking

and battery-free devices enable a global trillion-node IoT long imagined by technologists and

enterprises that stands to generate trillions of dollars in economic value over the coming years.

The full whitepaper is available for download now.
