As IoT products and services are expanding into mainstream, mobile operators and service providers are in a strategic position to capture market share, yet they must be prepared to rapidly deploy cost effective services to take advantage of IoT at massive scale. As your client base extends beyond the coverage of your fiber or tower coverage, so should your IoT offerings.
Forward thinking solution providers and device manufacturers are looking for ways to participate in the services economy to generate recurring revenue. With LoRaWAN, you now have an easy way to bundle and deploy low cost connectivity with your devices and end to end offerings.
Utility companies are working to meet the rising demand in energy while driving efficiencies and controlling costs. To do this, it is projected that nearly 1 billion smart meters will be installed by 2020*. Water utilities, in particular, have begun to implement smart metering technology to streamline their operations and proactively address issues with the nation’s water infrastructure.

Asset tracking, security applications, and inventory and warehouse management applications in manufacturing and supply chain management are some of the hottest areas for IoT growth.
LoRaWAN is the ideal LPWAN connectivity choice to:
Forward-thinking cities have come to recognize that to realize the full value of IoT, they must enable a secure and scalable network infrastructure that supports multiple solutions and applications. With LoRaWAN coverage in place a great number of IoT applications can be implemented to deliver added value to cities and their citizens
Municipalities are in a unique position to participate in Senet’s Low Power Wide Area Virtual Network (LVN) by utilizing existing assets (e.g. buildings and towers) to deploy LoRaWAN gateways. This deployment model provides broad IoT connectivity for city services and allows municipalities to generate new revenues through partnerships with solution and service providers using the network.
Collecting waste is an essential city service, but resources are often used to collect under-filled containers when others are overflowing. Smart waste management systems can optimize delivery schedules and routes to deliver a critical public service while saving energy, personnel, and equipment costs.
Public Facility Monitoring
Monitoring building access, lighting, temperature, air quality and other aspects of public buildings is needed to provide safety and access to critical city services. Smart building systems can also provide data that ensures structures are maintained properly by providing a predictive maintenance schedule.
Air Quality and Noise Pollution Monitoring
As more people move to cities, noise and air pollution are becoming a bigger challenge. Smart monitoring systems can provide data can Improve health conditions for a city’s citizens and help municipalities achieve government compliance.
Irrigation & Water Conservation
More efficiently managing water resources helps cities maintain vibrant public spaces while conserving valuable water resources in locations like parks, gardens, farm shares, and community supported agriculture areas.
Smart Parking & Traffic Management
Smart parking solutions can reduce traffic, save time and energy, and increases local business revenue. Cities are also able to monetize real-time parking data to feed parking applications.
