Posted by on October 24, 2016


Silver Spring has spent over a decade creating one of the most secure, reliable and powerful platforms on the planet, connecting more than 24.3 million devices that matter for the Internet of Important ThingsTM. We process 43.8B transactions per year, ten times the amount PayPal sees annually, on our network that covers approximately 60 million people over 1.5 million square miles on five continents. Today, we’re proud to announce that Silver Spring has been named as a Visionary in Gartner’s “Magic Quadrant for Managed Machine-to-Machine Services, Worldwide” – the company’s debut in a Gartner Magic Quadrant.

Gartner is a leading IT research and advisory company that helps CIOs and senior IT leaders in corporations and government agencies, to business leaders in high-tech and telecom enterprises, to technology investors, make informed business decisions.

And how does Gartner define a Visionary? According to the report, Gartner defines Visionaries as “having a clear view of the market’s direction, and a focus on providing services to meet future market needs.”

In 2016, Silver Spring has achieved additional momentum including:

  • Expanded StarfishTM – our public cloud IPv6 network and data platform – to Providence, London, Stockholm and Providence, RI. We’re also ramping out Starfish deployments in Bristol, Chicago, Copenhagen, Glasgow, San Antonio, San Jose and in Kolkata, India.
  • Extended our industry leading platform and solutions portfolio with enhancements to our Gen5 platform including speeds up to 2.4 Mbps, increasing computational performance by 10x, supporting simultaneous mesh communication on both 900 MHz and 2.4 GHz frequencies.
  • Partnered with Con Edison, Pacific Power, American Municipal Power, and Jamaica Public Service Company to create modernized power grids through the IoT in their service territories.
  • Continued to offer the industry’s most battle-tested, robust, reliable and rapid platform for the IoT – and back it up through specific service-level agreements on business requirements, applications, or performance, reliability and security needs.

We believe this recognition from Gartner validates our technology and our mission to enable users to leverage a platform built for the future, that delivers ever-greater benefits over time, and that allows them to deploy the innovative critical services that are defining the IoT.
