Senet and IotaComm connect on smart use case LoRaWAN delivery


A new partnership between Senet and IotaComm will see the two come together to deliver LoRaWAN with initial use cases focusing on smart building, smart city and critical infrastructure applications.

The partnership has been announced between Senet, Inc., provider of cloud-based software and services platforms that enable connectivity and network build-outs for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Iota Communications, Inc. (IotaComm) a low power, wide area network (LPWAN) wireless communication and data analytics software company.

The two will deliver LoRaWAN through both 915MHz unlicensed spectrum and through IotaComm’s 800MHz FCC-licensed spectrum network connectivity.

“We’re honoured to be working alongside Senet in the quest to provide the wireless connectivity efficiency and flexibility that industries are requiring,” said Terrence DeFranco, CEO, president of IotaComm.

“This partnership fully supports our goals of building the largest national, carrier-grade LPWAN dedicated to the IoT. Together with Senet’s network architecture expertise, we’ll deliver real-time data that results in high-value and actionable insights while filling an existing connectivity gap.”

The partnership between the two provides significant potential across industries during a time when increased efficacy is becoming more of a priority, especially for those within the energy sector.

IotaComm provides smart building and smart city solution used by building managers, industrial site managers, and city planners to manage the health, safety and sustainability goals of their organisations.

IotaComm has stated that it will use Senet’s cloud-based platform to manage both its public LoRaWAN network and private on-premises networks and application deployments using the 800MHz FCC-licensed spectrum.

By opening their LoRaWAN gateways to data traffic from solution providers connecting to the Senet Low Power Wide Area Virtual Network (LVN), IotaComm hopes to contribute to the expansion of public carrier-grade LoRaWAN networks and generate IoT services revenue streams.

With this collaboration, as well as in addition to its use of the Senet platform for application and device management, IotaComm has also become a Senet Radio Access Network (RAN) operator and Senet LPWAN Virtual Network (LVN) participant.
