May 13, 2020

Superior Essex Communications, the leading manufacturer and supplier of communications cable in North America, is proud to announce that it has recently been recognized by the editors of IoT Evolution World as a winner of the 2020 IoT Business Impact Award.

This award honors the Internet-of-Things (IoT) companies and solutions that drive innovation and progress across the Industrial IoT, Smart City and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) sectors of the greater IoT. According to the judges, the winners exhibited the industry expertise and thought leadership to drive the IoT into the future, as well as innovative approaches to providing products, solutions and services to meet their customers’ needs.

“Superior Essex is committed to designing and developing cable products that are not only future-proof themselves but that also enable the creation of our customers’ buildings of the future,” said Brad R. Johnson, President, Superior Essex Communications. “In an ever-evolving, IoT-enabled communications marketplace, we are immensely honored to have our cabling solutions recognized for their contributions to both of these efforts.”

Superior Essex won the IoT Business Impact Award this year based upon its implementation of its smart, industry-leading cabling solutions to interconnect Arvest Bank’s prototype branch of the future – resulting in energy savings and tech-forward branches for years to come. To learn more about this project, read the company’s Arvest Bank case study for all the details.

“Having an impact on a whole industry is a function of focus and strategy, and our winners have certainly shown that,” said Ken Briodagh, Editorial Director, IoT Evolution. “We are so pleased to be able to name Superior Essex Communications as one of our Business Impact Award winners for 2020. They deserve our congratulations.”

The global, integrated media company TMC, in conjunction with its partner Crossfire Media, announced the winners on behalf of IoT Evolution World.

These awards are regarded as some of the most prestigious and respected awards in the communications and technology sector worldwide. Winners represent prominent players in the market who consistently demonstrate the advancement of technologies.

The company is in the running for two categories – Company of the Year for “Creating the Sustainable Cable That Connects Us All” and Circular Economy for “Our Journey to True Zero Waste” – and the top three winners in each category will be announced in mid-June.
