Senet Inc. has expanded its build out of public long range wide area network (LoRaWAN) connectivity across all five boroughs of New York City.
The city is now one of the largest and densest metropolitan deployments of public LoRaWan connectivity in North America from a combination of:
- Tower-based carrier-grade network deployment
- Radio access network (RAN) partner networks
- Extended coverage integration with the Helium Network
Earlier this year, Senet expanded its roaming integration for LoRaWAN with Helium’s global hotspots, which automatically contribute to Senet’s network coverage with no additional costs to consumers. The partnership provides access to more than 27,500 Helium hotspots in the New York City area.
Additionally, users in New York City can use Senet as their carrier grade onramp to the Helium network, which is available through Senet’s extended coverage offering.
The network will allow the capacity to connect and manage millions of sensor-based internet of things (IoT) devices throughout New York City. Senet said it is working with municipal leaders, commercial and residential building management companies and utilities to expand infrastructure modernization, municipal service delivery and resource sustainability programs.
Senet plans to present its use cases for LoRaWAN and its partnerships at the upcoming Dense Networks New York City Connected Cities Tour on Oct. 13 in New York City.
