Wi-SUN Alliance Newsletter
Message from Phil Beecher, Chairman
It has been a productive 2016 for the Wi-SUN Alliance, during which we have further established our position as the leading organization delivering robust and secure standards-based interoperable communications for Smart Utilities, Smart Cities and IoT applications.
Our membership has now grown to over 120 member companies with new members from across the globe including China, Europe, India, SE Asia and South America, as well as Japan and the US.
The Wi-SUN Alliance Field Area Network (FAN) technical profile specification V1.0, published earlier this year, has resulted in a growing of number of utilities and national organizations requiring Wi-SUN Alliance FAN 1.0 certification.
We have been actively promoting and increasing the Alliance's visibility at exhibitions, conferences and open houses worldwide and continue to see growing interest from media and industry analysts.
Please come and see us at DistribuTECH 2017 (booth 2021) in San Diego 31st Jan - 2nd Feb, and learn more about Wi-SUN Alliance FAN 1.0.
We greatly appreciate our members and the organizations who continue to invest and support the Wi-SUN Alliance and our initiatives. The Wi-SUN Board of Directors, staff and I wish everyone Season's Greetings and a very Happy New Year. We are looking forward to another great year in 2017!
Regards, Phil Beecher
