PORTSMOUTH, N.H., Nov. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Senet, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based software and services platforms to enable global connectivity and network build-out for the Internet of Things (IoT), announced today that CRN,® a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized the company’s Low Power Wide Area Virtual Network (LVN™) as a finalist in the 2018 CRN Tech Innovator Awards. These annual awards honor standout hardware, software, and services that are moving the IT industry forward. In compiling the 2018 Tech Innovator Award list, CRN editors evaluated 300 products across 34 technology categories using several criteria, including technological advancements, the uniqueness of features and potential to help solution providers solve end users’ IT challenges.
The Senet LVN™ is a revolutionary approach to creating global IoT network coverage by providing network operators, application providers and system integrators with the ability to deliver and rapidly expand Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) connectivity in support of growing local, regional and global IoT application deployments. Managed by Senet’s cloud-based software and services platforms, the LVN provides extremely efficient, scalable and secure options to connect and manage low-power, low-cost sensors and simplifies historically complex operations related to application and device registration, message accounting, and settlements.
Senet’s go-to-market model includes channel and reseller programs for distributors, system integrators and IT solution providers looking to expand beyond their traditional hardware sales and integration models to provide aggregated IoT solutions and services, including network connectivity. For example, Senet recently partnered with Digi-Key to simplify the process for IoT application developers to access a full complement of Low Power Wide Area development kits, gateways, end sensor devices, connectivity services, and other resources through a single online resource at www.digikey.com/iot-senet.
“Senet’s LVN provides the most cost-effective and flexible approach to network deployment and is designed to support the broadest set of use cases as IoT application deployments grow in complexity and scale,” said Bruce Chatterley, CEO at Senet. “We are proud to have been recognized by CRN for the advancements the Senet LVN brings to deploying and managing IoT networks and for the value we deliver to our channel partners.”
