SenRa, a PAN India Low-Power Wide-Area Networks (LPWANs) provider for long range-based, low radio power Internet of Things (IoT) applications today announced they’ve rolled out networks in 30 cities in India.

Cities with SenRa’s LoRaWAN™ network coverage include Mumbai, Bangalore, Pune, New Delhi, Ahmedabad, Chennai, and Chandigarh.  SenRa’s deployment contributing to the adoption of  LoRaWAN in the region, along with other companies, including Tata Communications, contributing to the development of Smart Cities throughout India. 

On 25 June 2016, the Government of India launched a "100 Smart Cities Mission" and approved a budget of ?98,000 crore (US$14 billion) for the development of 100 smart cities and the rejuvenation of 500 others.

The Smart City Mission is an effort to create a more sustainable and citizen-friendly India. Applications include smart water metering, street lighting, waste bins, and parking.  

The Department of Telecommunications in India announced in February of 2018 their vision to enable access for connecting to 1 billion IoT/ M2M sensors/ devices by 2020 and 5 billion by 2022. 

A recent report by IoT Analytics shows that in 2018, Smart City projects have 23% of the global IoT market share. 

“I am so proud of our team today,” said Dhananjay Sharma, COO of SenRa. “We started network deployments in November of 2017 in the NCR area.  It is only fitting that one year later, we have reached our 30 city deployment goals ahead of schedule.”

The company said they will continue to deploy networks aggressively as part of implementing their longer-term vision of a PAN-India LoRaWAN network.

SenRa, a contributing member of the LoRa Alliance, is a PAN India Low Power Wide Area Network Provider (LPWAN), specifically LoRaWAN, for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine to Machine (M2M) solutions and applications.

LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Network) is a broad term covering several implementations and protocols, both open-source and proprietary. While other wireless communication technologies available like Bluetooth and BLE (and to some extent Wi-Fi and ZigBee) are not suited for long-range performance, LPWAN provides the longest range with a low data rate.

The technology used in a LoRaWAN™ network is designed to connect low-cost, battery operated sensors over long distances in harsh environments that were previously too challenging or cost-prohibitive to connect. With its penetration capability, a LoRaWAN gateway deployed on a building or tower can connect to sensors more than 10 miles away or to water meters deployed underground or in basements.
