Senet and ADTRAN Partner to Bring Simplicity and Scale to Enterprise IoT Solution Deployments

By

Wide Area Networking (WAN) has been in the vernacular of enterprise IT for decades, given the requirement for medium and large-size businesses to connect multiple locations, from headquarters to branch offices, and from data centers to clouds in a more virtualized architecture.

As IT teams become as comfortable with IoT as they had to become with IP (Internet) networking and the transition from circuit-based voice systems to VoIP, they are turning to the vendors they have trusted for decades while also identifying the next-generation vendors and ecosystems that are best prepared to help connect – and protect – data communications.

With increasingly more data showing the rapid ROI and low TCO of IIoT deployments, supporting automated systems that are driving unprecedented improvements of business outcomes while in many cases dramatically reducing operating costs, CIOs, CSOs, CPOs, and other leaders across every vertical industry have in place or are planning to put in place sensor-based monitoring, management, and maintenance solutions.

This week, Senet announced ADTRAN has selected its cloud-based network management platform designed to help IT and OT teams simplify and scale IoT and IIoT deployments.

ADTRAN, a company that has been serving businesses for years, has equipment and software embedded in service provider and enterprise private networks and is clearly making a foray into the vibrant world of IoT with Senet, an early pioneer in LoRaWAN network services with implementations in place around the world.

"Businesses are realizing the strain distributed IoT deployments can put on their network and look for solutions to better plan and manage IoT network resources and large scale sensor-based device deployments," said Keith Atwell, Head of Global Business Development at ADTRAN. "Partnering with Senet to provide out-of-the-box integration between our gateways and their cloud-hosted network services allows our customers to roll out IoT solutions of any size, knowing they are getting the carrier-grade quality the industry has come to expect from ADTRAN and on a network architected to scale with them as they grow."

Through this collaboration, the ADTRAN 7310-08 IoT Gateway is now certified to operate with Senet's cloud-based network management platform, providing businesses, VARs, and system integrators a clear path to deploying and managing cost-effective and secure LoRaWAN connectivity in and around commercial buildings at scale.

"It is one thing to select the most appropriate wireless technology to meet the needs of business-critical IoT projects, but quite another to manage it within a distributed organization," said Bruce Chatterley, CEO of Senet. "However, with the right network infrastructure and management services in place, enterprise organizations can rapidly overcome the more common challenges. Our partnership with ADTRAN gives businesses a clear path to using a diverse range of LoRaWAN-powered sensors to automate processes and gain new and actionable insights into their operations."

Senet said in their announcement that benefits include:

  • Efficient deployment and configuration on the Senet network with ADTRAN's IoT App and the micro-sized 7310-08, 8-channel LoRaWAN IoT gateway.
  • Integration with Senet's cloud-based network operating system, including OSS/BSS features engineered to coordinate and scale the delivery of network services beyond the capabilities of a standalone LoRaWAN Network Server (LNS).
  • New business and revenue generation opportunities through participation in Senet's patented Low Power Wide Area Virtual Network (LVN™).

With ADTRAN and Senet removing the complexities of network deployment and management, the companies claim businesses can focus on improving operations and safety through a range of wirelessly connected solutions. ADTRAN's micro-sized, 8-channel LoRaWAN IoT gateway, for example, is purpose-built for a broad range of Smart Building applications, including asset tracking, equipment monitoring, lighting controls, room occupancies, biometrics, motion sensing, and contact tracing.
