Senet and TEKTELIC Communications Collaborate to Extend CES Internet of Things Network Availability
Companies Showcase Low Power Wide Area Network Services and Sensors for Connected Home and Office Environment Monitoring
Las Vegas, NV – January 8, 2018 — Senet, a leading provider of cloud-based software, global connectivity service platforms and network build-out for the Internet of Things (IoT), and TEKTELIC Communications, a leading manufacturer of carrier grade LoRaWAN IoT gateways and sensors, today announced a collaborative expansion of Senet’s LoRaWAN network in Las Vegas to support CES Internet of Things product and solution demonstrations.
Through this collaboration, companies demonstrating Low Power Wide Area sensors and applications are provided free carrier grade network services from Senet, delivered by TEKTELIC’s KONA Macro Gateways. The KONA Macro Gateway is differentiated by its high capacity and long-range RF coverage, Frequency Division Duplex (FDD), Rx frequency diversity and multiple concurrent Tx channels, built-in highly selective and configurable bandpass filters to reject and reduce out of band interference, multiple backhaul options, geolocation, GPS Hold Over, maintenance free long lifecycle and low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). TEKTELIC will also be showcasing their All-in-One Home Sensor which is designed to measure and report temperature, humidity, light, movement, motion, force, and state. Demonstrations will highlight how the customizable features and over-the-air configuration, running over Senet’s LoRaWAN network services, are ideal for smart home and office environment monitoring and other commercial and industrial applications.
Roman Nemish, TEKTELIC’s Co-Founder and President said, “We are thrilled to be working with the Senet team to contribute to the advancement of their network across North America and in Las Vegas for CES. Senet is an excellent partner, LoRaWAN pioneer and LPWAN innovator with a diverse customer base. Our partnership has resulted in the delivery of unique product capabilities and best practices related to providing carrier grade LoRaWAN coverage, and we look forward to continuing our collaboration to further advance and evolve the LoRaWAN standard.”
“We are pleased to be partnering with Tektelic to provide the CES community with reliable and expansive network coverage for a variety of commercial and industrial Internet of Things demonstrations,” said Dave Kjendal, CTO of Senet. “Tektelic is an instrumental partner in the ongoing expansion of Senet’s public Low Power Wide Area network services and the Kona Macro is an outstanding option within our portfolio of supported LoRaWAN gateways.”
In addition to Senet partners contributing to its CES network infrastructure buildout, several partners are demonstrating LoRaWAN applications on the Senet public network. Demonstrations are being conducted in CES demo suites throughout Las Vegas, at Tech East in the IoT Infrastructure pavilion and in the LoRa Alliance booth (#2121) at Westgate Las Vegas.
