Senet, Inc. today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued a new patent for Senet’s approach to IoT networking, U.S. Patent Number 11,044,607 entitled “Method for gateway onboarding for IoT networks.”
The company said their announcement that this latest patent “adds an extra layer of security to LoRaWAN connectivity, which is particularly important in mission-critical infrastructure and business applications where gateway performance must be carefully monitored.”
“Every IoT device needs to be secure, particularly when massive IoT deployments are involved, and our team has worked tirelessly to make it as easy as possible to connect to our carrier-grade network while adding new security features,” said Bruce Chatterley (News - Alert), CEO of Senet. “The patents Senet was awarded recently are a testament to our dedication to creating IoT software and solutions that lead to successful large-scale IoT deployments for enterprises, utilities, and other organizations.”
The patent covers a new system for gateway onboarding leveraging a self-service registration portal that users connect to via the Internet to confirm the gateway’s serial number and other identifying information. It validates the information of the gateway and user and enables network access and configuration parameters only when that information is confirmed.
Other patents in the Senet portfolio include those issued for its IoT Network Controller / Server and Low Power Wide Area Virtual Network.
Its IoT Network Controller / Server patent is fundamental to Senet’s cloud-based operating system, which has been designed from the ground up by the company to support billions of IoT devices.
Its patented Low Power Wide Area Network model, which they refer to as the Low Power Wide-area Virtual Network or LVN™, creates opportunities for organizations across the IoT ecosystem to become Radio Access Network (RAN) partners and not only accelerate the spread of IoT connectivity but benefit from revenue-sharing based on participation level.
