Las Vegas, NV January 8, 2019 Fybr, the leading Smart City Platform solution provider, announced it won the CES 2019 Innovation Award for FybrLynk™. This is the second time in the past two years that Fybr has won a prestigious product award, receiving recognition of Fybr’s exceptional capabilities in innovative Smart City technologies.
The CES Innovation Awards Honoree in the “Smart Cities” category, FybrLynk™ is an intelligent, flexible interface able to connect any low data-rate edge device to the Fybr Smart City Platform. It enables the ability to shorten IoT solution prototype development times from months to days and the rapid deployment of a wide variety of solutions and unique use cases. FybrLynk™ enables Cities to quickly and efficiently collect and analyze real-time data based on their specific needs saving them time and money and leading the way to a more sustainable future.
“The concept of the FybrLynk™ was born from the understanding that real world use cases would go way beyond the scope of what anyone could possibly imagine. Simply creating a product and then trying to find a home for it seemed shortsighted in today’s climate of ever evolving technical needs. Instead, we decided to develop a secure, low cost, low power, low risk component that would shortcut the process of providing solutions to unique problems.” Bret Beringer, Fybr’s Chief Engineering Officer noted, “the FybrLynk™ allows us to use technology to solve problems, not just using technology for the sake of technology.” He goes on to say, “The world is full of data. The FybrLynk™ allows access and control of data that otherwise would not be available.”
FybrLynk™ is the latest in cutting edge Smart City technology and is currently deployed in San Mateo County, California in partnership with SMC Labs, Washington D.C., Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania, City of Avalon, California, and Chesterfield, Missouri where Fybr has converted their headquarters into a state-of-the-art Smart City Living Lab.
In addition, FybrLynk™ will be on display at the “Innovation Award Showcase” at CES 2019, Fybr will showcase live demonstrations of their technology in the Resilience section of the Smart City Exhibitor area, which runs January 8-11, 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Prior to the CES Innovation Award, Fybr won Frost & Sullivan’s 2017 North American Smart Water and Smart Cities Product Leadership Award, receiving recognition for the development of a leading smart water solution that directly responds to key challenges that have traditionally stymied the growth of data-based solutions.
