PORTSMOUTH, N.H.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--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 built on the LoRaWAN™ protocol, today announced that it’s a recipient of a 2016 IoT Excellence Award for its LoRa-based LPWA network and best-in-class LoRaWAN IoT development services.
The 2016 IoT Evolution IoT Excellence Award presented by TMC and Crossfire Media honors innovative products that support the availability of information being deduced, inferred and directly gathered from sensors, systems and anything else that is supporting better business and personal decisions.
“It is my pleasure to recognize Senet’s Low-Power Wide-Area Network with an IoT Excellence Award for its excellence in innovation,” said Carl Ford, CEO & Community Developer, Crossfire Media. “As a leader in this rapidly evolving industry, I look forward to seeing Senet’s future successes.”
“The massive growth in data being generated by networked sensors and devices, combined with the opportunity to create new revenue streams, means businesses must disrupt or be disrupted,” said Dave Kjendal, CTO and Executive Vice President of Engineering at Senet. “We are to very pleased to have received this award in recognition of our efforts to enable disruptive IoT applications and deliver the tools and resources to support rapid advancements in IoT solution development.”
Senet, a leading member of the LoRa® Alliance, continues to expanded its network, which covers more than 225 cities in 23 states across the United States. The company’s surging coverage growth in 2016, and early 2017, reflects the steadily increasing demand for LoRaWAN connectivity due to its economics and low risk when compared to cellular, proprietary networks and other approaches. This growth in demand is clearly evidenced by a 160 percent jump in Senet Developer Portal registrations between October 2016 and April 2017, representing approximately 150 different applications in various stages of development and deployment.
