The network is available now to AWS customers across Everynet’s national LoRaWAN network footprint in the United States, with plans to expand globally in the coming months.
Low-cost connectivity. Users can avoid the expense and long-term resource investment needed to implement and manage a dedicated LoRaWAN network. It requires no upfront network CAPEX and connectivity is consumed on an ultra-low-cost messaging plan.
Expediate time to market. Quickly and securely connect LoRaWAN devices to the cloud – at scale – via AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN, reducing the time to deployment from months to minutes and speeding time to revenue.
Simplified billing. With AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN, powered by Everynet connectivity, customers will receive a single, consolidated bill from AWS encompassing messaging and connectivity. There are no upfront commitments or minimum fees. Subscribers receive simple, transparent billing directly from AWS. Participation in the public preview is free of charge.
"AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN with Everynet connectivity provides customers with a low-cost, plug-and-play solution that simplifies the process of connecting wireless devices to the cloud at scale,” explains Vitaly Kleban, Everynet co-founder and CTO. "From the start, we have been dedicated to making LoRaWAN more accessible to help address environmental, business, and societal challenges. Working with AWS to offer our carrier-grade LoRaWAN national network to their customers across our global network footprint is a big step forward in that accessibility. This simplifies and reduces the expense of connecting wireless devices to the cloud at scale."
“LoRaWAN is becoming the technology of choice for IoT deployments that require long range and low power consumption,” said Yasser Alsaied, Vice President of IoT at AWS. “LoRaWAN network operators are building new types of public infrastructure to meet future IoT networking requirements. Enabling our customers to deploy LoRaWAN devices using public networks not only reduces deployment efforts, but also brings new business opportunities for our customers. Working with Everynet was the natural next step for us as we expand our efforts to support the LoRaWAN landscape.”
Quext, a leader in smart multi-unit dwelling technology, is currently using AWS IoT Core, with Everynet LoRaWAN connectivity, to operate a LoRaWAN device that enables building managers and residents to control smart door locks and thermostats through a single application. “At Quext, we’re focused on delivering cost-effective and streamlined smart apartment technology that boosts property values, simplifies building management and improves resident satisfaction. Access to the Everynet LoRaWAN network globally through AWS IoT Core is providing us with the most efficient and immediate way to meet this goal,” explains Tray Johnson, CTO at Quext.

Digi International, a leading global provider of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, connectivity products and services, today announced the release of its latest value-added service — Digi WAN Bonding — to deliver true Gigabit speeds for dramatically enhanced network performance. This solution, which is fully integrated into the Digi technology stack, also dramatically improves Internet reliability and increases bandwidth for customers in the enterprise, industrial and transportation sectors.
Available as an add-on value-added service to the industry-leading IoT device and network management platform, Digi Remote Manager® (Digi RM), Digi WAN Bonding leverages the edge intelligence of Digi Accelerated Linux (DAL) OS, Digi’s powerful Linux-based operating system. Digi WAN Bonding enables customers running DAL OS on their Digi devices to centrally configure, deploy, and manage the bonding together of multiple WAN connections. This WAN aggregation provides a sophisticated blend of increased throughput speeds, WAN smoothing, packet redundancy, and seamless failover for always-on Internet connectivity.
Digi WAN Bonding yields four key benefits:
Increased bandwidth: By combining multiple connections, WAN bonding can provide a higher total bandwidth than any single connection for video streaming or file sharing.
Increased speed: Additionally, combining multiple WAN links supports increased speed for one or multiple devices, up to 1 Gbps maximum.
Improved reliability: WAN bonding also improves the reliability of your bonded communication channels. If a connection fails, the others continue to provide service.
Reduced costs: WAN bonding can also reduce costs, for example enabling enterprises to obtain lower monthly rates for multiple connections.
Improved network performance is of extreme benefit to organizations requiring excellent speed and resiliency for data-intensive applications. These include video streaming to multiple media displays, vehicle cameras, and video conferencing. By providing customers with hot failover protection, this service ensures that if one WAN connection fails, the other connection takes over, thereby minimizing network downtime. Digi WAN Bonding also allows companies to take advantage of multiple ISPs, which can result in cost savings when businesses can negotiate better pricing and/or secure a provider that offers the best value for their specific needs.
“Organizations the world over are constantly searching for ways to boost network speed and reliability,” said Kinana Hussain, Vice President of Product Management for Digi International. “By fully integrating bandwidth bonding technology with Digi’s DAL OS and Digi Remote Manager, we’re able to provide businesses that rely on their network for critical operations with ultra-fast, ultra-reliable network performance and cost-efficient connectivity they very much want and need.”
Digi WAN Bonding — developed in collaboration with Bondix Intelligence — is distinct in that it allows for a maximum throughput speed of up to one Gigabit per second, compared to max speeds of 200 Mbps from other WAN bonding services.
“At Bondix, we’ve been thrilled to partner with Digi on rolling out our Bondix S.A.NE technology as an add-on service to Digi Remote Manager,” said Martin Santner, Director of Sales and Business Development for Bondix Intelligence. “This collaboration simplifies WAN aggregation, putting the mission-critical capabilities of WAN bonding into the hands of those who need it, enabling them to offer faster, better, more reliable connectivity when and where it matters.”
S.A.NE, which is short for Simple Aggregation of Networks, is proprietary software engineered by Bondix Technology to ensure reliable voice, video, and data transmission connectivity for mobile and stationary deployments alike.
