With a diverse set of IoT applications characterized by different demands, there is no “one technology fits all” approach to delivering connectivity for all IoT applications. The emergence of Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWANs), however, is fundamentally changing the IoT landscape. The cost and functionality gap between cellular and local-area networks has created an opportunity for LPWAN technologies, which excel at enabling low power, long range sensor applications where only small amounts of data are required.

The LoRaWAN® open specification is a low power, wide area networking (LPWAN) protocol based on LoRa Technology. Designed to wirelessly connect battery operated things to the Internet in regional, national or global networks, the LoRaWAN protocol leverages the unlicensed radio spectrum in the Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) band. The specification defines the device-to-infrastructure of LoRa physical layer parameters and the LoRaWAN protocol, and provides seamless interoperability between devices.


Of the billions of IoT sensor-enabled devices expected to be connected over the next few years, more than half are estimated to operate using Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWANs). Designed for sensors and applications that need to send and receive small amounts of data just a few times per hour or maybe only once a day, LPWANs are transforming the way things are monitored and measured and are contributing to a new wave of IoT innovation resulting in solutions and business models that otherwise would not be possible.

IoT is driving advancements across enterprise and industrial markets, and in vertical industries such as water, gas and electric utilities, agriculture, healthcare and municipal services where it has the potential to streamline operations, deliver time and cost savings and create new services. It is also driving global economic and environmental change with new opportunities for innovation enabling businesses and citizens to make the world a better place.


Senet provides a range of consulting services leveraging our experience developing cloud-based network connectivity platforms, operating and managing global IoT networks and developing and deploying market changing IoT applications. We can assist you throughout the product and application development process, from device selection and testing, to proof of concept (POC) and full production deployment.


The success of the Internet of Things depends on reliable data, making sensors and end devices a critical part of any IoT solution. High performance sensing ensures the highest level of integrity from the start.
