Low cost IoT Sensors and LoRaWAN networks will support new municipal services and optimise use of critical resources
Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity specialist, Senet, is partnering with technology solutions company, Imtac of Oman, to deliver smart city solutions and new municipal services in the Gulf region. The companies will focus on areas such as lighting, asset tracking, water management and smart buildings.
Imtac, through its IoT and smart city brand, Empyreal, integrates field assets and automation controls to monitor, manage and maintain industrial systems. By leveraging the low power and long-range characteristics of LoRaWAN and the advanced device and network management capabilities of Senet’s cloud-based IoT network services, the company is able to support a greater number of smart city applications and aims to deliver significant financial savings and automation opportunities to its customers.
“Senet’s IoT device-to-cloud software and connectivity services help companies like Imtac instrument the physical world and deliver contextualised data to drive digital transformation,” said Bruce Chatterley, CEO at Senet. “We are excited to be working with Imtac to accelerate the deployment of solutions designed to deliver enhanced services to citizens and businesses in the region.”
“LoRaWAN is widely recognised as the fastest growing protocol for global IoT connectivity and Senet brings the expertise and technology leadership we seek as we grow our ecosystem of IoT partners”
Senet offers LoRaWAN network coverage and connectivity readiness in over 80 countries. Organisations looking to accelerate their time to market with LoRaWAN solutions can register for free access to the Senet developer portal, which provides advanced development resources to register and manage LoRaWAN end nodes and initiate testing on the Senet network. The company is a founding and contributing member of the LoRa Alliance.
Mukesh Arora, COO of Imtac, said the strategic partnership will allow the company to extend its vision to include a greater number of smart applications in the Gulf region. He added: “LoRaWAN is widely recognised as the fastest growing protocol for global IoT connectivity and Senet brings the expertise and technology leadership we seek as we grow our ecosystem of IoT partners.”
