Senet Announces Suite of IoT Product Development Services for LoRa
22 June 2016 – Senet, the first North American provider of public Internet of Things (IoT) applications based on the Low Power Wide Area standard LoRaWAN today announced the availability of The Senet IoT Foundry, a suite of services for developers of IoT solutions and services.
The offerings are designed to help developers in startups as well as established companies accelerate the commercialisation of LoRa-based products and solutions. The advent of Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) connectivity enables a whole new set of innovative business cases for solving customer problems. As an early leader in LPWAN technology, Senet aims to stimulate and accelerate the growth of the LoRa ecosystem by way of these new service offerings.
The Foundry services are available now and are offered at Senet’s Portsmouth, NH headquarters. Due to its depth of expertise, Senet is in a unique position to be able to offer training, development tools, a network sandbox, and technical consulting services that help IoT solution developers create and launch LoRa compliant IoT products and applications in record time. The services can be tailored to address hardware and/or firmware development projects. Customers can choose to follow The Foundry’s four-step development program, or choose the services they need most. The Foundry’s four-step program includes:
- Introductory LPWAN and LoRaWAN Training Lab – two days
- Product Ideation and Design Kickoff – one week
- Full Product Development Consulting – two months
- Certification Readiness (LoRaWAN and FCC) – one week (each)
“As Senet has been aggressively addressing network coverage and growth, we recognized early on that we have a responsibility and an opportunity to help our partners in the LoRa ecosystem bring their solutions to market quickly,” said George Dannecker, President and CEO of Senet (above). “Startup companies and even large enterprises may not have availability of the full range of skills required to be able to deliver vertically complete IoT solutions to their customers. Senet can help these companies significantly reduce the time and effort to get to market, enabling solution vendors to solve their customers’ problems faster.”
Senet is a contributing member of the LoRa Alliance and has been active on all of the Alliance's committees since its inception. Senet was the first in North America to gain FCC certification on LoRa-based sensors and gateways. The company has compiled a range of high-level designs, best practices, and development tools that can benefit other ecosystem partners. For additional information please visit www.senetco.com.
