Connecting Things with LoRaWAN in the Golden State: California CLEC Partners with Senet To Deploy and Scale IoT Networks

By

As evidence that Competitive Local Exchange Carriers (CLECs) in the US are pushing beyond their traditional voice and data offerings, last GeoLinks, a California telecom provider and competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) public utility, recently announced they will deliver LoRaWAN IoT network connectivity and support IoT sensor deployments using Senet's suite of Radio Access Network Provider Services to complete targeted network build-outs, followed by the delivery of LoRaWAN connectivity services for a broad range of IoT markets and applications over the coming months.

Based on success in first-mover markets, Senet is collaborating with GeoLinks on initial target applications, including water and gas utility services, smart agriculture, public safety enhancements, and the delivery of critical municipal and enterprise services. 

GeoLinks will also be participating in Senet's patented Low Power Wide Area Virtual Network, contributing to the unified carrier-grade LoRaWAN connectivity service managed by Senet across the United States.

LVN participation also provides GeoLinks and their customers with critical services needed to deploy IoT solutions at scale, including standardized device activation and deployment processes, predictable quality of service through advanced rating and network management, and roaming for mobile IoT applications.

As the owner of the largest fixed wireless coverage area of any single provider in California and the fastest growing telecommunications company in the state, GeoLinks is adding LoRaWAN to its connectivity portfolio as part of its strategic growth and accelerated network expansion plans.

"We believe LoRaWAN technology provides a tremendous opportunity for growth in IoT applications and are thrilled to be partnering with Senet to utilize this tech across our entire network," said Ryan Adams, President & COO at GeoLinks. "Senet is a proven leader in the LoRaWAN space, and we welcome the opportunity to extend and support their IoT services to our clients." 

According to Senet CEO Bruce Chatterley: "We are continuing to experience a trend in which fixed and wireless network operators are recognizing the benefits of offering multiple connectivity technologies to support the growth of IoT applications and use cases."

"We are excited to be working with GeoLinks to support their IoT strategy and LoRaWAN network rollout across California. We are well aligned on opportunities and believe our collaborative efforts will result in notable IoT solution deployments in high growth markets," added Chatterley.

The global LoRaWAN market is projected to reach US$5557.2 million, growing at a very high compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 47.2% from 2019 to 2027, according to market research firm InForGrowth.
