Senet and UnaBiz are collaborating on an internet of things (IoT) hybrid network that will provide access to long range wide area network (LoRaWAN) services as well as create future global 0G network access outside of North America.
The partnership will help UnaBiz customers enter the North American market with scaled low-power wide area network (LPWAN) applications using Senet’s public LoRaWAN network-as-a-service (NAAS) and platform-as-a-service (PAAS). UnaBiz is a massive IoT service provider and the NAAS and PAAS allows customers to bring their own gateways and other network interconnections.
Additionally, the UnaBiz and Senet deal enables roaming for Senet customers to leverage the UnaBiz 0G network, which is powered by Sigfox’s 0G technology commercialized by over 70 national operators worldwide.
“A single technology approach is simply not good enough or fast enough for our customers,” said Bruce Chatterley, CEO of Senet. “By interconnecting our network offerings, both Senet and UnaBiz can instantly overcome the geographical limits of our network availability, allowing our customers to expand based on their unique application needs.”
What are 0G networks?
0G networks are low-cost, low-power wireless networks that send or receive small messages between IoT devices. Sigfox is the originator of the 0G network, and the technology is now available in more than 70 countries and covers over 1 billion people.
The technology allows IoT devices to connect with its network using the internet and transmit small amounts of data over long ranges, however it does not require expensive IoT devices with SIM cards.
