The Internet of Things
Intelligent Connectivity of Physical Things
Creating Efficiency, Business Growth, and Quality of Life
The Internet of Things (IoT) may represent more innovation and change than any other technological development in our lifetime. Instrumenting the world with low-cost sensors is enabling businesses, cities and entire countries to change the way value is created by leveraging meaningful data to transform outcomes, markets, and economies. Today, IoT is driving advancements across enterprise and industrial markets where it has the potential to streamline operations, deliver time and cost savings and create new services. It is also driving global economic and environmental change with new opportunities for innovation enabling businesses and citizens to make the world a better place.
For several years Cellular and Wi-Fi have been preferred networks for IoT applications, but because of the high-cost of cellular and the limits of localized connectivity solutions, application development has been limited. While these technologies meet the goals of many proprietary, single use applications, they do not adequately address the needs of today’s large scale commercially deployable IoT solutions which are demanding long range, long sensor battery life, bi-directional communication, mobility, geo-location, enterprise-grade security, and low cost.
Of the billions of IoT sensor-enabled devices expected to be connected over the next few years, more than half are estimated to operate using Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWANs) supporting low bit rate communication over long distances. Designed for sensors and applications that need to send and receive small amounts of data just a few times per hour or maybe only once a day, LPWANs are transforming the way things are monitored and measured and are contributing to a new wave of IoT innovation which is pushing the boundaries of technology to create solutions with business models and revenue streams that otherwise would not be possible.
LoRaWAN®: The Global Standard for Low Power Wide Area Networks
LoRaWAN is the open global standard for carrier-grade Low Power Wide Area Network connectivity. Designed to connect low-cost, battery-operated sensors over long distances, LoRaWAN defines the communication protocol and system architecture of Senet’s network and cloud-based platforms, optimizing all aspects of device connectivity including end device battery life, network capacity, quality of service, and security.
LPWAN and LoRaWAN for Network Operators
To succeed, Network Operators need to get in front of large scale distributed IoT projects before connectivity is commoditized, and do so with disruptive business models that turn massive volumes of physical things into digital relationships with recurring service revenues.
LPWAN and LoRaWAN for Application Providers
LoRaWAN sensors and networks are transforming the way things are monitored and measured, driving the creation of new applications and business models that otherwise would not be possible. Senet is committed to delivering services that help application providers learn about their options and rapidly move from concept to production and deployment.
