I would suggest "IoT technologies" without "the".

Alphabetical order: n goes before p.

I'm confused by the description... Either this Caninos Loucos is an 
independent vendor and gets its own prefix, or it's LSI-Tec and uses 
something like lsi-tec,caninosloucos-foo. Please clarify commit message 
and/or description line, at least by inserting something like "program 
by", "brand by" or the like rather than just concatenating names. Maybe 
compare UDOO by SECO. Is caninos,foo unique enough or should it be 
caninosloucos,foo? (crazy canines?)

Note that I usually attempt to CC the organizations I'm assigning a 
vendor prefix for. Do you represent them or coordinated with them?
