Senet and Zenseio Partner to Deliver Smart Agriculture Solutions
Collaboration Simplifies Access to Advanced Farming Technology Designed to Improve Growing Processes, Increase Crop Yields, and Reduce Input Costs
Portsmouth, NH and Dallas, TX – (December 3, 2019) – Senet, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based software and services platforms to enable global connectivity and the on-demand network build-out for the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced a partnership with Zenseio, an IoT System Integrator specializing in embedded technology and durable, ready-to-use sensors and telemetry devices for the agriculture and industrial markets.
Through this technology partnership, Senet has certified the Zenseio LSMP2 – Professional Multi-purpose Telemetry Station, providing the agriculture market with a pre-integrated, network-tested solution designed to modernize how soil conditions, water usage, weather conditions, and other parameters are monitored. Senet has also added the Zenseio LSMP2 to its LoRaWAN end device Marketplace, a listing of hundreds of devices that are certified or at various stages of being certified to operate on the Senet network. Easy access to these certified devices can help reduce time to market and ensure optimal performance.
Built to withstand years of operation in harsh elements without maintenance, the industrial-grade, battery-operated LSMP2 Telemetry Station allows growers to more precisely monitor and control large-scale agricultural environments at a low capital cost. Certification with the Senet network provides customers with access to the largest public LoRaWAN network in the United States and flexible options to add coverage based on unique geographical and application-specific connectivity requirements.
“Today’s IoT sensors must be low cost, easy to install and last for long periods of time in the field. These characteristics allow growers to scale their deployments and benefit from true operational visibility,” said Roman Staszewski, President of Zenseio. “Senet’s highly scalable LoRaWAN network provides a significant opportunity for growers to deploy low cost, low power sensor technology to understand more about their crops and take action to improve their operations, increase yields, and optimize resource usage.”
Until now, poor wireless coverage in rural areas has impeded the adoption of IoT solutions. Farm land is often isolated from cellular and Wi-Fi technologies and where they do exist, cost and complexity of deployment can be prohibitive. Changing the paradigm for how IoT services are delivered and monetized, Senet and Senet network operator partners provide extensive coverage options in rural areas, allowing for a multitude of agriculture and precision farming applications to be deployed today.
“We are excited to be working with Zenseio to provide secure, low power wide area IoT network connectivity for their Smart Agriculture sensors,” said Bruce Chatterley, CEO at Senet. “Growers have unique challenges in rural areas and the long-range network coverage and extended battery life features of LoRaWAN provide new opportunities for farmers to revolutionize traditional growing processes and produce the highest yields and quality possible.”
