Senet Low Power Wide Area Virtual Network (LVN) and RAN Operator Services Support Expansion of Inland Cellular IoT Connectivity Portfolio

PORTSMOUTH, NH – March 27, 2018 — Senet, a leading provider of cloud-based software, global connectivity service platforms and network build-out for the Internet of Things (IoT), and Inland Cellular, a provider of local, nationwide and international cellular coverage, today announced a partnership to deliver Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) connectivity across Inland Cellular’s coverage areas and extend Inland’s branded services to support the rapid growth of IoT applications.

Through this partnership, Inland Cellular will begin offering LoRaWAN connectivity in the coming months for a broad range of IoT applications and markets, including tank monitoring, water metering and management, smart agriculture and smart cities. The companies will work closely to expand Inland’s coverage footprint and IoT application support through Senet’s Radio Access Network (RAN) Operator services, which provide coordinated go-to-market activities between operators, solution providers and system integrators ready to take immediate advantage of highly scalable and secure connectivity purpose built for the IoT.

Adding LoRaWAN to their connectivity portfolio supports Inland Cellular’s strategic expansion into IoT with the recent launch of their Emerge Technologies brand. Emerge Technologies provides products and services for industrial IoT, enterprise, smart home and consumer solutions.

“Partnering with Senet to offer LoRaWAN connectivity services gives us a first mover advantage and allows us to become more competitive by supporting one of the fastest growing IoT connectivity technologies in the world,” said Chip Damato, Vice President at Inland Cellular “With Senet’s support, we have the ability to rapidly scale our network coverage to support many new business opportunities and the expansion of our Emerge Technologies IoT brand, while maintaining our commitment to providing industry leading customer service and support.”

“Inland Cellular is a great example of a forward-thinking operator strategically leveraging their existing infrastructure to deploy IoT services and develop new revenue streams through ecosystem partnerships, said Noelani McGadden, VP of Strategic Accounts at Senet. “We are very excited to be partnering with Inland Cellular to help them create additional business value and reach new customers across existing and rapidly emerging market segments in the IoT.”

As part of Senet’s Low Power Wide Area Virtual Network (LVN), Inland Cellular’s LoRaWAN network is powered by Senet’s cloud-based Operations Support System (OSS) and Business Support System (BSS) platforms, providing efficient, scalable and secure options to connect and manage low-power, low-cost sensors at massive scale. The Senet LVN was recently recognized by Frost & Sullivan’s Manufacturing Leadership (ML) Council as a Manufacturing Leadership Award winner for its outstanding achievement in the Industrial Internet of Things.

“We are experiencing a growing trend in which operators are recognizing the benefit of supporting multiple connectivity technologies to support a variety of customer needs and IoT use cases,” said Bruce Chatterley, CEO at Senet. “With a multi-year head start over competing LPWAN providers, critical technical advantages and disruptive go-to-market models, Senet has become a trusted partner for operators like Inland Cellular who are ready to join the IoT services economy today.”
