Combined Networks Capable of Connecting Billions of Low Power Sensor-Based IoT Devices Across the United States
PORTSMOUTH, N.H. & SAN FRANCISCO, September 21, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Senet, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based software and services platforms that enable global connectivity and on-demand network build-outs for the Internet of Things (IoT), and Helium, the company behind one of the world’s first peer-to-peer wireless networks, today announced a network roaming integration, broadening access to public LoRaWAN network connectivity for customers deploying IoT applications throughout the United States.
The Helium Network, also known as "The People’s Network", joins a growing number of network operators, Radio Access Network (RAN) Partners and network infrastructure providers partnering with Senet to ensure that LoRaWAN connectivity can be accessed when and where it is needed, and at the optimal cost. Senet operates the first and only National public, carrier-grade LoRaWAN network and through this roaming integration, its customers deploying enterprise and consumer-grade devices now have expanded access to public network coverage provided by over 175,000 Helium-compatible Hotspots deployed by individuals throughout the US. This network access is available from Senet under its Extended Coverage offering and is supported by Senet network management services, delivering the highest levels of reliability and responsiveness for scaled IoT applications.
For Helium-compatible Hotspot owners, this partnership provides an opportunity for increased network traffic generated by high density IoT applications being deployed by Senet customers, such as asset tracking, logistics and supply chain monitoring, environmental monitoring, and municipal (Smart City) services. These customers represent well over one billion transactions processed on the Senet network annually. Accumulated data transfer and "proof-of-coverage" transactions earn Hotspot owners HNT cryptocurrency for their contribution to building and maintaining the Helium Network infrastructure.
