Senet and Sagemcom Partner to Demonstrate LoRaWAN Geolocation at CES 2018

Senet and Sagemcom Partner to Demonstrate LoRaWAN Geolocation at CES 2018

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.”

Senet Launches Global LPWA Virtual Network to Redefine IoT Connectivity and Service Delivery

Senet Launches Global LPWA Virtual Network to Redefine IoT Connectivity and Service Delivery

Senet Launches Global LPWA Virtual Network to Redefine IoT Connectivity and Service Delivery

New model of LoRaWAN connectivity allows businesses, solution providers and municipalities to unlock value and create opportunities across entire IoT ecosystem.

Senet announced today the launch of the Senet Low Power Wide Area Virtual Network (LVN™).

Moving beyond today’s antiquated network connectivity business models, the Senet LVN creates opportunities for network operators, solution providers, systems integrators, municipalities, and enterprise organizations to proactively contribute to the rapid build out of global IoT connectivity and immediately benefit from revenue share models based on their level of participation.

Senet’s LVN, Managed Network Services for IoT (MNSi™) and public network are powered by its proprietary Network Operating System, which is built on a common cloud-based services architecture. The Senet operating system provides extremely efficient, scalable and secure options to connect and manage low power, low-cost sensors at massive scale and simplifies historically complex operations related to application and device registration, message accounting and settlements.

Key features of the Senet LVN include:

  • A modern IoT architecture built on a highly scalable and secure cloud-based services
  • A host platform for Radio Access Network participants
  • Global device provisioning and device placement on any LVN Radio Access Network
  • Roaming between participating operators and other connectivity providers
  • Single billing supporting global device connectivity
  • Standardized global device activation and deployment processes
  • Comprehensive global network operations support
  • Revenue share models across provider classes
  • Access to the fastest continuously growing LoRa LPWAN network

“There is an IoT land grab taking place among network operators while, at the same time, solution providers are struggling to model a return on investment because of high network costs and limited coverage,” said Senet CEO Bruce Chatterley. “The Senet LVN addresses these challenges by modernizing IoT connectivity and offering ways for an entire ecosystem of participants to monetize their networks and services.”

“Our innovative LVN technology essentially creates a demand-based and incentive-based ‘Network Effect,’ or ‘Connectivity Marketplace’ to building out the Senet global IoT network. The next big transformation taking place in IoT relates to network connectivity, and the first to market have the most to gain.”

LVN Engagement Examples

Unique to the Senet Low Power Wide Area Virtual Network are business models designed for organizations to engage at various levels of participation and benefit from a revenue share model based on the role they play in the larger network ecosystem.

For example, a network operator (Cable, Wireless, Fiber, or CLEC) can augment their connectivity portfolio by deploying LoRaWAN gateways on their existing tower or building assets and extend their branded services well beyond their existing footprint to generate revenue from a broader customer base. Domestic and international LoRaWAN networks will interoperate through roaming, allowing connected devices to be placed on any operator network, supporting mobile IoT applications and making global connectivity a reality.

The Senet LVN also creates opportunities for new partnerships between municipalities and service providers. Municipalities, for example, are in a unique position to partner with utility companies to create the backbone for connected city-wide services. LoRaWAN gateways deployed on a combination of city and utility owned assets create a relationship that supports rapid network deployment, broad coverage and revenue sharing without any individual party incurring the brunt of the capital equipment expense. Senet then manages these network assets using its Network Operating System. Once deployed, any device from any application or solution provider that connects to these networks generates a new revenue stream for the municipality and/or utility. Embracing such an opportunity could mean a huge technological leap forward and lay the foundation for true smart and connected cities.

In addition, Senet provides an opportunity for thousands of global IoT application providers, system integrators and enterprises to register their LoRaWAN gateways on the LVN and generate revenue based on the number of qualified messages using their Radio Access Network. This model supports both production deployments and large market trials, allowing for participation in the Senet LVN at various levels of application rollout.

With this new approach to providing LoRaWAN network IoT coverage, Senet is enabling businesses to revolutionize their products and operations by delivering ubiquitous network connectivity wherever it is needed, when it is needed and at the lowest possible cost.
