BehrTech among the world’s top mobile and wireless companies and solutions recognized in the annual awards program

TORONTO – November 13, 2019 – BehrTech, a disruptive enabler of next-gen wireless connectivity for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), today announced that it has been named “Startup of the Year” in the 2019 Mobile Breakthrough Awards. The awards program is run by Mobile Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies, and products in the global wireless and mobile market today.

The MYTHINGS wireless connectivity software platform developed by BehrTech is designed for IIoT applications and is the first and only platform to implement MIOTY™ (TS-UNB), a wireless connectivity protocol for low power wide area networks (LPWAN) used in industrial and commercial IoT deployments. As the worldwide licensee of MIOTY, BehrTech is focused on the development of new MIOTY-based products and applications under the MYTHINGS brand to address the wireless connectivity needs of massive-scale IIoT networks. BehrTech also facilitated the standardization of the MIOTY protocol (TS UNB) by ETSI, establishing it as the only standardized LPWAN technology in the market.

“We've deployed over 40 MYTHINGS pilot projects with some of the world’s largest companies across mining, manufacturing, oil and gas, construction and utilities sectors,” said Albert Behr, CEO of BehrTech. “In a very short period of time, we have also established partnerships with the world’s leading technology giants including Microsoft, Intel, Advantech, and Hitachi Solutions and 20 other technology partners and system integrators. Being recognized as the Startup of the Year in the 2019 Mobile Breakthrough Awards is testament to the ingenuity and hard work of the entire BehrTech team.”

The mission of the annual Mobile Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success of companies across mobile and wireless technology categories, including Cloud Computing, Mobile Management, Wireless and Broadband, Mobile Analytics, IoT, Smart City and many more. All nominations were evaluated by an independent panel of experts within the wireless industry.

“Within 18 months, BehrTech has made significant headway in the LPWAN and IIoT markets, and their MYTHINGS platform is already recognized among industry veterans as a leading mobile connectivity platform with tremendous potential,” stated James Johnson, managing director at Mobile Breakthrough. “The spirit of the Mobile Breakthrough Awards is in recognizing innovative “breakthrough” solutions in the mobile market and BehrTech stands out among the crowded market. We are thrilled to recognize BehrTech with our annual “Startup of the Year” award in the 2019 Mobile Breakthrough Awards program.”

The first three products released under the MYTHINGS platform were the MYTHINGS Rapid Prototyping Module, MYTHINGS Module, and MYTHINGS Central.

The MYTHINGS Module (M2.COM) is the only off-the-shelf wireless module from Advantech featuring standardized LPWAN software.
