Senet, Inc., a provider of cloud-based software and services platforms that enable global connectivity and on-demand network build-outs for the Internet of Things (IoT) announced it is expanding the build out of its public network operating on the LoRaWAN standard across the Tampa Bay Metropolitan Region.
With dense carrier-grade coverage already in place to support Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) for water utilities, Senet is expanding its network to cover more than 1,600 square miles across Hillsborough and Pinellas Counties, including the cities of Tampa Bay and St. Petersburg. This network will be the largest and densest metropolitan deployment of public carrier-grade LoRaWAN connectivity in North America, providing capacity to support millions of IoT device connections from over 80 planned tower sites.
Due to gateway density and signal strength, the network will provide broad outdoor coverage and indoor penetration, making Senet’s Tampa Bay Area public LoRaWAN network an ideal connectivity choice for energy and utility, municipal (Smart City), manufacturing and distribution, asset tracking and multi-location campus enterprise solutions.
Senet’s Tampa Bay Area LoRaWAN network is being expanded on a rolling construction schedule and will be complete by the end of 2021
