“Barclay Knapp realized there are likely many great inventions that stall because of the high cost of cellular connectivity and set out to build a nationwide, dedicated, low-cost nationwide wireless network just for the Internet of Things,” said Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Connected World magazine. “I am very honored to give a 2015 ConnectED Award to Barclay, as he saw a big challenge in the market and addressed it head on.”

M2M SN, through its hardware and software vendors, is developing a wide-area data radio system based on proprietary technology: Machine Data Network Architecture (“mDNA”), the foundation of M2M SN’s network infrastructure. The mDNA architecture provides seamless interfaces to existing M2M applications, M2M application providers, and M2M MVNO’s, along with “High Site” and “Mesh Network” saturation coverage of the US.
“It is a privilege to be named a ConnectED Award winner,” commented Barclay Knapp. “We are committed to the creation of a game-changing network which is purpose-built and optimized solely for M2M applications.
