Senet and Atos Partner to Take on the LoRaWAN Network Security World

By Cynthia S. Artin March 08, 2018

As LoRaWAN networks spread across the globe at a rapid pace, Senet, the largest LoRa network service provider in the U.S., and provider of OSS and BSS platforms for other global LoRa service providers, last week announced with Atos, a global leader in digital transformation headquartered in France, a refreshingly straightforward partnership integrating the company’s Bull Horus security suite with Senet’s cloud-based IoT connectivity platform.

Atos claims it is the only company which delivers a comprehensive end-to-end security solution for IoT, including hardware, key management, PKI and secure elements embedded in devices. It is already powering a national IoT network with Bouygues Telecom, and according to the announcement will work with Senet globally, including expanding Atos’ footprint into North and South America.

“As a leading provider of LoRaWAN network services, Senet continues to both innovate and build partnerships that provide customers with improved security and more choice by enabling a simple method to choose their preferred security solution in a given region at any point in time,” said Bruce Chatterley, CEO at Senet.

All Senet network assets are designed and implemented with security and data privacy as critical aspects of the process, ensuring device makers, solution providers and end users are provided the tools to simply and cost-effectively address the complex security challenges of deploying IoT at massive scale.

“Through this partnership with Senet, customers will benefit from a trusted IoT ecosystem foundation as LoRaWAN networks continue to gain momentum in actively contributing to business digital transformation globally” said David Leporini, Director - IoT Security, BDS at Atos.

The Bull Horus security suite is part of Atos Codex, advanced analytics, Internet of Things and cognitive solutions to design, deliver, manage and secure the full IoT value chain from connected devices to edge computing to the datacenter.

In addition to its IoT security technology, Atos is also involved in artificial intelligence, big data and analytics, blockchain and cloud products and platforms, and it seems inevitable they will be bringing many of those disciplines to bear as the IoT and IIoT markets continue to mature with deeper integration across capabilities.

With annual revenue of approximately €13 billion and 100,000 employees in 73 countries, this publicly traded company is also an expert at large-scale event communications, including supporting the Olympic Winter Games and Paralympics this year, after a successful run in Sochi in 2014, Beijing in 2008, Athens in 2004 and Sydney in 2000.

Will our next Olympic Games and Olympic Winter Games be LoRaWAN powered? Makes sense, given the performance and economics LoRa delivers in small city-like spaces. Earlier this year at CES, Senet set up a LoRaWAN network around the convention center and adjacent spaces.

With an Atos security partnership, there could be better networking for better surveillance, crowd management, traffic management and more – the IoT possibilities in stadiums for sport seem rather unlimited.
