Senet, the first and fastest growing North American provider of public, low-power, wide-area networks (LPWANs) for long-range Internet of Things (IoT) applications supporting the LoRaWAN protocol, announced today a comprehensive portfolio of cloud-based Managed Network Services for IoT that enable Communication Service Providers (CSP) to deploy LoRaWAN services on their physical assets, supervise the network infrastructure, manage connectivity and control roles and access rights within a reliable and scalable solution.
Faced with unprecedented change, Communication Service Providers are adopting next generation OSS (Operations Support System) and BSS (Business Support System) solutions to support new business frameworks associated with the Cloud, IoT networks and data at scale. For CSPs wanting to gain first mover advantage in the high growth LPWAN market, Senet Managed Network Services for IoT support the turnkey addition of LoRaWAN connectivity to existing service offerings at disruptive price points and with carrier-grade scalability and security at its core.
“As the commercial deployment of gateways scale to the tens of thousands and end device counts reach the millions, the infrastructure costs associated with providing IoT network services become more critical,” said Bruce Chatterley, CEO & President at Senet. “Beginning in early 2015, Senet invested in developing its OSS as a means to create the perfect balance between scalability, functionality and cost. The Senet OSS is now managing one of the largest LoRaWAN networks in the world and provides our carrier partners with the opportunity to create new revenue streams and speed LPWAN commercialization world-wide.”
