Cloud-based software and services provider Senet unleashes its Low Power Wide Area Virtual Network (LVN), which it claims will provide opportunities to proactively contribute to the rapid build out of global IoT connectivity and immediately benefit from revenue share models based on the 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 operating system provides options to connect and manage low power, low-cost sensors on a large scale and simplifies complex operations related to application and device registration, message accounting and settlements.
LVN features include:
- IoT architecture built on 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
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.
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.
