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), and Iota Communications Inc., a low power, wide area network (LPWAN) wireless communication and data analytics software company, are partnering to deliver LoRaWAN through 915 MHz unlicensed spectrum and through IotaComm’s 800 MHz FCC-licensed spectrum network connectivity.
The initial use cases will be focused on smart buildings, smart cities, and critical infrastructure applications. With the collaboration, and in addition to its use of the Senet platform for application and device management, IotaComm also has become a Senet Radio Access Network (RAN) operator and Senet LPWAN Virtual Network (LVN) participant, adding coverage to one a fast-growing LoRaWAN network in North America.
Through a combination of sensors, meters, and its Delphi360 wireless connectivity and data analytics platform, IotaComm provides an end-to-end smart building and smart city solution used by building managers, industrial site managers and city planners to manage the health, safety and sustainability goals of their organizations and facilities better.
In addition, IotaComm combines its FCC-licensed spectrum within the LoRaWAN standard to enable carrier-grade, low power wide area connectivity for critical infrastructure applications, such as smart metering and predictive maintenance.
To support growing customer demand for power-efficient, battery-operated indoor and outdoor smart building sensors, IotaComm operates more than 140 tower sites nationwide and plans to deploy 150 LoRaWAN gateways by 2023.
For customers preferring added levels of network and application performance, Senet and IotaComm are collaborating to create a new LoRaWAN service using the 800 MHz licensed spectrum. IotaComm already owns enough 800 MHz spectrum to cover about 90 percent of the country and plans to deploy multi-access gateways to deliver a premium smart building connectivity offering. IotaComm will use Senet’s cloud-based platform to manage its public LoRaWAN network and private on-premises networks and application deployments using the 800 MHz FCC-licensed spectrum.
