Speak. Exhibit. Advertise. It's all about events.

2018 started out with a burst of energy and events. This year we participated in the inaugural IoT Infrastructure Pavilion at CES and is considered to be the largest consumer electronics tradeshow. On display in our booth was the industry’s first LoRa enabled hardware suite, the first LTE Category M1 device approved for the AT&T network, showed how we’re enabling lifesaving solutions and demonstrated an IoT solution that delivers simplicity and agility to enterprise IoT application development.

Through our socially conscious efforts we’re continuing to donate on your behalf when you visit us at an event. We’re donating to Technovation[MN] which brings the Global Technovation Challenge to our home state of Minnesota. Every year, Technovation invites teams of middle school and high school aged girls from all over the world to learn and apply the skills needed to solve real-world problems through technology.  Click here to learn more about Technovation[MN].
