Private Enterprise IoT Powered by Senet Cloud Services
Flexible Options For Your IoT Application Deployment Needs
To support modern business requirements, you must have flexibility and control over how you deploy and manage your IoT connectivity and device environment.
Senet’s Platform-as-a-Service allows you to deploy owner-operated LoRaWAN networks with extreme flexibility in gateway and device configuration and management.
Our Platform-as-a-Service offering supports enterprises and multi-location businesses with private, hybrid and public network options.
The Most Flexible Solutions for Enterprise and Multi-Location Businesses
Senet’s PaaS offering supports deployments where our partners and end customers deploy and own the LoRaWAN gateways
Removing the Complexity From IoT Network Deployments
In each of the network deployment models supported by Senet Platform-as-a-Service, any outdoor or indoor LoRaWAN standard compliant gateway is “plug & play” with Senet’s highly scalable cloud platform and network service.
Provides for Owner Operated networks, while leveraging the benefits of Senet’s Cloud services. Includes end-device privacy and agile connectivity options for a variety use cases. Scaled IoT solution deployments are supported by Senet’s network deployment and device management expertise.
Gateways are deployed as part of the Senet LVN and accept all device traffic. Senet LVN participants benefit from their investment in the LoRaWAN gateway infrastructure by sharing in the revenue generated by all end devices connecting to their Radio Access Network.
Senet Network Services Architecture
Deploying and scaling IoT solutions doesn’t have to be difficult. Senet provides network connectivity models for any type of deployment. Connect to our public network or deploy your own gateways to deliver RAN services or for private network coverage.
“Partnering with Senet to provide out-of-the-box integration between our gateways and their cloud-hosted network services allows our customers to roll out IoT solutions of any size, knowing they are getting the carrier-grade quality the industry has come to expect from ADTRAN and on a network architected to scale with them as they grow.”

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.
The ability to provide Firmware Upgrades Over The Air (FUOTA) is critical to several IoT application performance and device lifecycle requirements including implementing bug fixes, patching security vulnerabilities and supporting new features. FUOTA support provides future-proofing of LoRaWAN deployments and ensures that devices will continue to operate over long lifetimes.
Senet’s FUOTA implementation provides efficient, secure and reliable multicast delivery of binary firmware images to end-devices and is compliant with the specifications and recommendations from the FUOTA Working Group of the LoRa Alliance Technical Committee, specifically the ability to transition the end-device between Class A and Class C modes of operation.
On-demand network expansion based on the unique geographical and application-specific connectivity needs of customers and partners is how IoT will ultimately scale to billions of connected devices. Senet’s Network Planning and Management Services provide everything needed to build and deploy network sites quickly and cost effectively in order to maintain availability and deliver a high quality of service for Internet of Things applications.
A full suite of Site Operations services to assist with the planning and deployment of networks in the most efficient way possible.

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.
We are working with hundreds of disruptive businesses to revolutionize their products and operations by delivering standardized low-cost network connectivity where it’s needed, when it’s needed and at the most efficient total cost of ownership. To help you get there, we are creating new operating paradigms, innovative business models and partnering with leading technology and business partners across the IoT ecosystem.
