Senet and Sagemcom Partner to Demonstrate LoRaWAN Geolocation at CES 2018

GPS-Free Geolocation Enables Organizations to Benefit from the Advantages of Geodata Over Low Power Wide Area Networks at a Decreased Cost.

Senet and Sagemcom, a French group and European leader of the high added-value smart terminals market, today announced that they have partnered to demonstrate LoRaWAN™ geolocation services at CES 2018.

With research indicating that over 50 percent of the IoT market is best suited to Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) connectivity and a third of the world’s 15 billion connected devices forecasted to be dependent on geodata by 2020, LoRa® geolocation is well positioned to offer power efficient and cost-effective location capability for a wide range of applications that do not require the precision of GPS.

Sagemcom and Senet are demonstrating LoRaWAN tracking capabilities through the integration of Sagemcom’s geolocation solver software with Senet’s LoRaWAN network. Sagemcom Siconia™ multi-sensor devices have been placed on mobile and stationary assets throughout the Las Vegas area and are reporting geolocation and environmental data over the Senet LoRaWAN network. Geolocation information is being combined with other readings and visualized in demo applications that illustrate how users across industries can leverage IoT data for asset management, inventory, security and maintenance.

Eric Rieul, CEO of Sagemcom Energy & Telecom SAS, said:

“LoRaWAN geolocation brings a strong disruption in the asset management and logistic markets and is a viable commercial technology for a wide variety of IoT applications where GPS is cost and/or battery life prohibitive.”

“Through our tight collaboration with Senet, we are able to rapidly deliver these new features and capabilities to market and successfully drive new business opportunities where the promise of IoT had previously been slowed by cost and scalability challenges.”

“Geolocation is an exciting enhancement to our LoRaWAN connectivity services and opens up new use cases that are expected to drive substantial revenue streams for LoRaWAN network operators and solution providers,” said Dave Kjendal, CTO of Senet. “We are pleased to be partnered with Sagemcom to deliver such high-performance and highly differentiated solutions to the market.”

Ooredoo and Sagemcom Launch the First IoT Network in Tunisia

Ooredoo Tunisia and Sagemcom have just launched the first Tunisian Internet of Things (IoT) network, based on LoRa™ technology.

The network enables devices to exchange small amounts of data, with a standard battery providing independent battery life of up to 10 years.

This IoT network will also facilitate the development of solutions in various areas: Smart City (smart parking, presence detection, etc.), Smart Industry (machines predictive maintenance, asset management and tracking, logistics, etc.), Smart Environment (fire detection, etc.) and other uses in health, transport, agriculture, etc.

This launch will strengthen Ooredoo’s activities in the Internet of Things.
Youssef El Masri, CEO of Ooredoo Tunisia, said:

“Following the marketing of the first connected device in 2014, the launch of the first M2M managed connectivity solution in 2015 and the success of the first tests on various long-range, low-consumption technologies, Ooredoo is today launching the first IoT network in Tunisia.”

“This has been made possible through the license issued by the Ministry of Information and Communication Technologies in June. We are proud to be the first operator in Tunisia to deploy this technology, which is globally recognised as the most successful Internet of Things solution,” he added.

Sagemcom believes that “this close collaboration with Ooredoo will reinforce both our vision and strategy for the Industrial Internet of Things, through our SICONIA™ products and solutions, and our long-term presence and support in Tunisia and in the wider region”. Eric Rieul, CEO of Sagemcom Energy & Telecom, also stressed that “Sagemcom is delighted to be able to support and expedite Ooredoo’s IoT ambitions in Tunisia, thus contributing to the country’s economic growth.”
