 Silver Spring Launches Global IoT Network to Rival 5G

Silver Spring Networks has launched a new global Internet of Things (IoT) network.  Starfish is available to cities, businesses, utilities and developers.

Silver Spring says the network will outperform the IoT features of the 5G mobile networks of the future.

Starfish is being deployed in San Jose, Chicago, San Antonio, Bristol (UK), Copenhagen (DEN) and Calcutta (India), opening up opportunities for applications from civic to smart city and commercial deployment.  

Silver Spring Networks says IoT has a potential economic impact of $3.9 trillion to $11.1 trillion a year by 2025.

The Silver Spring IPv6 network features speeds up to 1.2Mbps, 10 millisecond latency up to 50 miles in point-to-point range and nearly limitless mesh range.  It is open to cities, IoT developers, utilities, entrepreneurs and companies looking to use the network to build businesses.  It is accompanied by an SDK and HDK offering, a free entry-level service plan, delivering 5,000 messages at 16 bytes per month, and a Global IoT Hackathon series to spur development.
