Senet Launches Global LPWA Virtual Network for IoT Connectivity

By Ken Briodagh November 17, 2017

In a recent announcement, Senet, a provider of global, cloud-based software and services platforms for the IoT, launched its new Low Power Wide Area Virtual Network (LPWAVN). The company said it is moving beyond the current network models, which it calls antiquated, and creating opportunities for network operators, solution providers, systems integrators, municipalities, and enterprise organizations to contribute to the build out of global IoT connectivity and benefit from revenue share models.

These offerings are powered by the company’s proprietary Network Operating System, which is built on a common cloud-based services architecture. The Senet OS is designed to provide efficient, scalable and secure options for low power, low-cost sensors at scale.

Key features of the Senet LVN include:

  • A modern IoT architecture built on a highly scalable and secure cloud-based services
  • A host platform for Radio Access Network participants
  • Global device provisioning and device placement on any LVN Radio Access Network
  • Roaming between participating operators and other connectivity providers
  • Single billing supporting global device connectivity
  • Standardized global device activation and deployment processes
  • Comprehensive global network operations support
  • Revenue share models across provider classes
  • Access to the fastest continuously growing LoRa LPWAN network

“There is an IoT land grab taking place among network operators while, at the same time, solution providers are struggling to model a return on investment because of high network costs and limited coverage,” said Bruce Chatterley, CEO, Senet. “The Senet LVN addresses these challenges by modernizing IoT connectivity and offering ways for an entire ecosystem of participants to monetize their networks and services. Our innovative LVN technology essentially creates a demand-based and incentive-based ‘Network Effect,’ or ‘Connectivity Marketplace’ to building out the Senet global IoT network. The next big transformation taking place in IoT relates to network connectivity, and the first to market have the most to gain.”
