Companies to host LoRaWAN boot camp session at LoRa Alliance All Members Meeting and Open House

Portsmouth, NH – May 31, 2018 – Senet, a leading provider of cloud-based software, global connectivity service platforms and network build-out for the Internet of Things (IoT), and global technology leader Laird (LRD: London), today announced that the Laird Sentrius LoRaWAN gateway now comes pre-loaded with the Senet LoRa Packet Forwarder software and provides native support for registration and operation on Senet’s network. This out-of-the-box integration allows enterprise organizations to deploy LoRaWAN solutions more efficiently across a variety of markets and rapidly expand as new business opportunities arise.

Designed for secure and scalable Enterprise IoT (EIoT) deployments, the 8-channel Sentrius gateway supports LoRaWAN, dual-band Wi-Fi and wired Ethernet for multi-protocol flexibility.

Laird and Senet are both members of the LoRa Alliance and will be participating at the 10th LoRa Alliance All Members Meeting and Open House in Vancouver, Canada from June 4-7, 2018. The companies will be hosting a LoRaWAN boot camp session on Thursday, June 7. In this hands-on session, attendees will walk through using both BLE and LoRaWAN to bridge sensor data (temperature, wind speed and direction) via Laird’s RG1xx Gateway platform to Senet’s Network-as-a-Service. All participants will receive a free Sentrius RM191 development kit.

“Senet’s approach to IoT network deployment and operation brings unique value to companies like Laird by creating new customer engagement and gateway deployment models that are accelerating the adoption of low power, wide area connectivity,” stated Jonathan Kaye, Senior Director, Product Management at Laird. “We are excited to be collaborating with Senet to combine the utility of the Sentrius gateway with the ease of use and flexibility of the Senet network for our customers.”

In addition to advanced deployment tools, including intuitive web-based configuration and integration with Senet’s Packet Forwarder, the Sentrius RG1xx offers:

  • Full Linux operating system — Kernel v4.x running on Atmel A5 Core @ 536 MHz
  • Multiple interfaces such as LoRaWAN, 802.11a/b/g/n and Ethernet
  • 8-Channel LoRaWAN support with up to +27dBM max transmit power
  • Comprehensive Certifications for FCC / IC / CE (all pending)
  • Industrial temperature range (-30 to 70 C)
  • Enterprise-grade security built on Laird’s years of experience in wireless
  • “The Laird Sentrius is an outstanding addition to our portfolio of qualified LoRaWAN gateways as it delivers the critical features needed to support the demands and diversity of EIoT applications,” said Bruce Chatterley, CEO & President at Senet. “We look forward to our ongoing collaboration with Laird to help organizations deploy LoRaWAN networks faster and more efficiently and are excited to be partnering with a like-minded company committed to simplifying IoT connectivity for enterprises around the globe.”
