Millennial Net produces hardware and software to build reliable, low-power wireless
sensor networks. Our tiny, micro-power network elements can be installed anywhere
or embedded in a sensor or actuator to add wireless connectivity. These products
are used in industrial automation, building automation, supply-chain management,
automatic meter reading, security, and other low-data-rate applications. We also
provide services to customize our technology for specific OEM requirements.
Millennial Net was founded in 2000 with the vision to create a robust, scalable,
and very low power wireless sensor networking platform. Headquartered in Cambridge,
Massachusetts, Millennial Net traces its roots to MIT, where two of the company's
founders achieved advanced degrees and performed ground-breaking research in low-power
The company is financed by a syndicate of top-tier venture investors and is well
poised for aggressive, long-term growth.

Millennial Net's technology
forms a reliable, scalable star-mesh wireless network by combining micro-power sensor
interface endpoints and routers with a gateway. This solution uniquely provides
both long battery life at the sensor interfaces and fault-tolerant networking.
Our innovative, patent-pending network protocol creates robust and fully
redundant wireless links from the gateway to the endpoints through a self-configuring
mesh network. The endpoints directly connect to, and are small enough to integrate
into, analog or digital sensors and actuators. The network elements self-organize
at power-up and re-configure in response to changes in the environment, network
traffic, and device status and location. These tiny devices fit anywhere, enable
mobility, and minimize installation and operating costs.
The company's primary product is the i-Bean, the world's smallest
wireless sensor networking device. It combines analog and digital interfaces, a
radio transceiver, and a microcontroller for sensor signal processing, control and
Millennial Net uses a portfolio of radio technologies including ultra-low-power
narrowband solutions as well as IEEE 802.15.4 wireless personal area network (WPAN)
Evaluation kits are available.
