India IoT On the Move: SenRa Expands Service Coverage

By Cynthia S. Artin February 27, 2018

Less than a year after establishing a business in New Delhi, SenRa has grown from providing connectivity services rolled out last May in India’s National Capital Region (NCR) to ten cities, averaging more than one city network built each month.

The company claims in a news release issued today that their first deployment took less than 90 days – including LoRaWAN connectivity, customer support and developer services, a feat which usually takes 18 months to 2 years.

Utilizing Senet’s cloud-based Managed Network Services for IoT (MNSiTM), SenRa launched its LoRaWAN connectivity services in May 2017, establishing a foothold in India’s massive IoT solutions market.

“After we successfully launched our first service network in the NCR, we’ve deployed in ten other cities including Delhi, Bengaluru, Ahmedabad and Pune,” said Ali Hosseini, Chief Executive Officer of SenRa. “We could never have achieved this without a full OSS and BSS, which made is possible for us to simply set up local physical assets on towers and buildings then instantly be able to sell services and provision customers while outsourcing network management to Senet.”

Now a fully operational LoRaWAN network operator, SenRa is supporting several initiatives that address environmental and sustainability issues, including collaborating with cities across India to address water scarcity, water pollution and water consumption challenges.

“SenRa’s success in deploying and expanding their LoRaWAN network across India is a great example of how Senet’s OSS and BSS platforms can reduce operator resource requirements and cost, while improving time-to-market and accelerating time-to-revenue,” said Bruce Chatterley, CEO & President at Senet, in the company’s news release. “We look forward to growing our partnership with SenRa as the adoption of IoT solutions continues to accelerate throughout India.”

Both companies are part of the LoRa Alliance, and are in Barcelona this week demonstrating LoRa networking at Mobile World Congress.
