Senet, Inc., a provider of Cloud-based software and services platforms that enable global connectivity and on-demand network build-outs for the Internet of Things (IoT), has been selected as the winner of the ‘IoT Alliance of the Year’ award in the 7th annual IoT Breakthrough Awards programme conducted by IoT Breakthrough.
The 2023 IoT Breakthrough Award recognises the innovation brought to market by Senet’s integration with the Helium Network, resulting in the largest global public LoRaWAN network, dense network coverage in most major metropolitan areas, coast-to-coast coverage across major US logistics corridors, and the introduction of a suite of network visualisation, planning, and management tools to simplify the deployment of IoT solutions on the Helium network.
Delivered though Senet’s Extended Coverage Services, Senet customers can now access global LoRaWAN network connectivity through more than 982,000 Helium-compatible hotspots in over 76,000 cities and 188 countries. For solution providers deploying commercial applications at scale, Senet provides a carrier grade on-ramp to the Helium Network. Through a full suite of cloud-based services, solution providers partnered with Senet can onboard and operate their IoT devices using Senet’s platform and benefit from features such as application management through an intuitive user portal or APIs, simplified billing in US dollars, and secure device provisioning. As new hotspots are added to the global Helium Network, they will automatically contribute to Senet’s network coverage at no additional cost to customers.
This integration also supports unique service offerings like Senet’s Location Estimator which uses the company’s public carrier-grade LoRaWAN network and the Helium network to provide customers with location logic for asset tracking, location-enabled mapping, and any application that can benefit from estimated presence and proximity detection.
“The growth of the LoRaWAN market is being driven by demand for wireless solutions to help optimise business operations, modernise municipal infrastructure, and aid in resource conservation. Adoption of LoRaWAN is being seen across various industries such as utilities, healthcare, manufacturing, and logistics, and more. By connecting IoT devices, even entire cities can optimise the use of their utilities and services to save time and money,” said James Johnson, Managing Director at IoT Breakthrough. “Over the past year, the partnership between Senet and Helium has rapidly accelerated. This integration brought together the two largest LoRaWAN networks in North America to deliver far more connectivity than had previously been available. By onboarding their solutions through Senet, customers benefit from its robust network and device management services, delivering the highest levels of reliability and responsiveness for scaled IoT applications. Congratulations to Senet on winning the award for ‘IoT Alliance of the Year!’”
The mission of the IoT Breakthrough Awards programme is to recognise the innovators, leaders, and visionaries from around the globe in a range of IoT categories, including Industrial and Enterprise IoT, Smart City technology, Connected Home and Home Automation, Connected Car, and many more. This year’s programme attracted more than 4,000 nominations from companies all over the world.
“We’re honoured to be recognised by IoT Breakthrough for our global integration with the Helium Network and launch of our Extended Coverage services. I’d like to congratulate all of those who have contributed to a year of historical growth in the IoT and LoRaWAN markets,” said Bruce Chatterley, CEO of Senet. “The growth of the Helium Network has been explosive and as solution deployments grow in scale, robust network and device management services are becoming increasingly important. Through Senet’s Extended Coverage and managed services on-ramp to the Helium Network, solution providers benefit from greater coverage and consistency in operational service which are vital to success.”
