Solution will allow SenRa to flexibly deploy LoRaWAN services on its local physical assets
Senet, a provider of low-power wide-area networks (LPWANs) and managed network services, has partnered with SenRa Tech, an LPWAN provider to roll out a LoRaWAN Internet of Things (IoT) network throughout India.
SenRa plans to utilise Senet’s cloud-based managed network services for IoT (MNSI).
The MNSI solution will allow SenRa to flexibly deploy LoRaWAN services on its local physical assets, supervise the network infrastructure, manage connectivity and control roles and access rights within a reliable and scalable solution.
In turn, this will enable SenRa to speed delivery of its IoT and machine-to-machine (M2M) network services for customers providing solutions in industries such as water metering and management, agriculture, building infrastructure and smart cities.
“Senet is excited to be working with SenRa to meet the exploding demand for IoT solutions in India,” said Bruce Chatterley, CEO and president at Senet.
“Senet’s managed network services for IoT enables forward thinking companies like SenRa to deploy highly-secure and scalable LoRaWANs under their own brand with minimum time-to-market and the lowest possible capital expenditure and cost of ownership structure.”
SenRa’s LoRaWAN roll out is underway and the company said it is committed to contributing to the evolution of the LoRaWAN ecosystem, including its recent signing up to the LoRa Alliance.
“Senet’s unparalleled experience in scaling and managing LPWANs made selecting [its] managed network services an easy choice,” said Ali Hosseini, chief executive officer, SenRa.
“India aims to capture a 20 per cent share of a global 300 billion dollar IoT market opportunity in another five years. The best way for us to support this growth is by partnering with market leaders and technology innovators like Senet who are proven capable of meeting the diverse challenges emerging in the M2M and IoT space.”
Senet said its MNSI solution also can be used to partner with application providers which have built public or private LoRa-based networks, and would rather focus on their core application business instead of managing a network.
The company’s managed network services allows communication firms and application providers anywhere in the world to easily and completely deploy LoRaWAN IoT services on their existing infrastructure or Senet’s public network.
MNS will accelerate time-to-revenue and securely activate, monitor and provide scale to support thousands, and ultimately millions of devices across a broad range of business models.
