Senet Recognized as 2018 Frost & Sullivan Manufacturing Leadership Awards Winner

Company honored for manufacturing excellence for the development and deployment of its Global Low Power Wide Area Virtual Network (LVN™)


PORTSMOUTH, NH – March 15, 2018 Senet, a leading provider of cloud-based software, global connectivity service platforms and network buildout for the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced that it has been recognized by Frost & Sullivan’s Manufacturing Leadership (ML) Council as a Manufacturing Leadership Award winner for its outstanding achievement in the Industrial Internet of Things.

Senet is being recognized for the market-leading innovation and new operating paradigms it is bringing to IoT connectivity with its Low Power Wide Area Virtual Network (LVN™). Built for IoT, the Senet LVN modernizes device connectivity and management, and offers ways for an entire ecosystem of participants to monetize their networks and services in ways that legacy and proprietary connectivity services cannot.

The Senet LVN allows end-device connectivity and application service on any LoRaWAN Radio Access Network (RAN) network using Senet’s cloud-based OSS and BSS services. Included in the LVN are Senet’s Radio Access Network, networks running on Senet’s Managed Network Services for IoT (MNSi™) and other RAN providers contributing to the LVN buildout. This unique and powerful model provides new opportunities for application providers, system integrators, utilities, municipalities, enterprises, tower operators and other network operators to participate in the IoT economy without being overburdened by cost, deployment complexity and lack of network connectivity.

“Time to market for applications on the Senet LVN is reduced significantly as the scale and flexibility of the network enables customers to bring solutions to market fifty percent faster than with traditional network builds,” said Bruce Chatterley, CEO of Senet. “In addition, domestic and international LoRaWAN networks will interoperate through roaming, allowing connected devices to be placed on any operator network, supporting mobile applications and making global IoT connectivity a reality.”

Senet will be recognized at the 14th Annual Manufacturing Leadership Awards Gala, which is to be held on the last day of the Manufacturing Leadership Summit, June 11-13, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort and Spa in Huntington Beach, CA.

Nominations for the 2019 Manufacturing Leadership Awards will open in September 2018.
