IoT Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global Internet-of-Things (IoT) market, today announced that Spark Connected, a leading technology developer of advanced and innovative wireless power system solutions, has been selected as the winner of the “Wireless Technology Innovation Award” in the 4th annual IoT Breakthrough Awards program.

Spark Connected is a global leader in developing advanced, innovative and safe wireless power technologies and solutions that benefit a wide variety of applications in the Automotive, Industrial, Medical, Robotics, Security, Factory Automation, IoT, Smart Home, Consumer and Telecom markets.

The 2020 IoT Breakthrough Awards program is recognizing Spark Connected for their development of an industry first 30-Watt wireless power solution, The Gorgon, engineered for Telecom Infrastructure and IoT Security applications. The Gorgon wireless power solution consists of both a transmitter and companion receiver. The solution integrates into in-building mmWave 5G products and eliminates the need to wire external antenna or FWA links, aiming to reduce overall deployment costs for network operators and simplifying installation.

The mission of the IoT Breakthrough Awards program is to recognize the innovators, leaders and visionaries from around the globe in a range of IoT categories, including Industrial and Enterprise IoT, Smart City technology, Connected Home and Home Automation, Connected Car, and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 3,700 nominations from companies all over the world.

“With the dawn of 5G upon us, The Gorgon platform represents a significant step forward in making wireless power a commercial reality in 5G networks,“ said James Johnson, managing director at IoT Breakthrough. “5G is one of the most significant wireless developments impacting the telecom and IoT industry, and Spark Connected is marching forward understanding that the 5G future is now. Wireless technology is a wide arena and we congratulate Spark Connected and the Gorgon platform for “breaking through” the industry with their significant achievement in the IoT space.”

“We are committed to making the promises of 5G technology a reality, and we are confident that our Gorgon solution will deliver “breakthrough” results for our Telecom Infrastructure and IoT customers,” said Ken Moore, Chief Executive Officer, Spark Connected. “The Gorgon unlocks true value for mobile users in Fixed Wireless Access for commercial and residential CPE. The applications for The Gorgon are nearly endless and include not only 5G CPE, but security cameras, smart and connected home and factory automation to name a few. We are extremely proud to be recognized by IoT Breakthrough and consider this a strong validation of our innovative drive at Spark Connected.”

The Gorgon wireless power platform can transmit 30 Watts of power wirelessly and can be integrated in 5G telecom fixed wireless access nodes. The Gorgon transmitter continuously provides power from the inside of the home to the receiver 5G antenna on the outside of the window in the home.

The Gorgon platform is also being integrated in outdoor security cameras. The cameras can be attached to the outside of the window along with The Gorgon wireless power receiver, and the main power unit is attached to the window inside the home along with The Gorgon wireless power transmitter. This results in a simple installation where the inside and outside units are attached without the need to breach the weatherproof barrier by drilling through walls.
