RAN Provider Services
Add Low-Cost LoRaWAN Gateways to Your Existing Assets to Participate in the IoT Services Economy
Become a Radio Access Network Partner with Senet
Senet has established a unique way for infrastructure providers to participate in the IoT ecosystem by monetizing the infrastructure deployed to connect low-power, low-cost sensors. Become a Radio Access Network (RAN) Provider by deploying and maintaining indoor or outdoor LoRaWAN gateways on your physical assets (towers, buildings, municipal assets and other public and private structures) and share in the revenue generated by all devices connecting to your RAN.
Unlock Additional Value from Your Assets
The Senet Low Power Wide Area Virtual Network (LVN™) includes a unique role for infrastructure providers that enables end device connectivity and application service on any LoRaWAN Radio Access Network using Senet’s Network Operating System

Expand Your Role in the IoT Services Economy
Several growth opportunities are available to RAN Providers as your Radio Access Network grows and IoT applications build under your coverage area
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.
Senet provides a full suite of network planning, deployment and management services to ensure the highest levels of reliability, responsiveness and an optimal user experience. Our Network Planning and Management Services provide everything needed to build and deploy network sites quickly and cost effectively in order to maintain high availability and deliver the quality of service required for Internet of Things applications.
A Network Design is an easy way to get started. We can help with everything from site selection, RF propagation planning and spectrum analysis.
Easily grow from a Senet RAN Provider partner to LoRaWAN network operator with Senet’s Managed Network Services for IoT (MNSi™) MNSi is a cloud-based turn-key network service that enables connectivity providers to rapidly and cost effectively deploy LoRaWAN services on their physical assets (towers, buildings, etc.) and offer low power wide area network connectivity to their customers.
To support RAN Providers in their transition to a Network Operator, Senet offers a suite of Network Planning and Management Services to assist with the planning and deployment of LoRaWAN 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.
