Senet and Helium Network have declared to expand their roaming integration to include Helium-compatible Hotspots deployed globally.
This global expansion follows a previously completed network integration for US customers and the delivery of integrated network mapping and planning tools designed to simplify the rollout of IoT solutions.
Bruce Chatterley, CEO of Senet, said, “Expanding Senet’s integration with the Helium Network is an example of our combined interest in delivering LoRaWAN coverage at a global scale for the widest range of use cases.”
“The growth of the Helium Network has been explosive and as solution deployments grow in scale, robust network and device management services are becoming increasingly important. Through our Extended Coverage and managed services on-ramp to the Helium Network, solution providers benefit from greater coverage and consistency in operational service which are vital to success.”
“Senet has been a trailblazer in innovating around LoRaWAN service delivery, and they continue to drive market adoption of low power wide area networks for large scale commercial applications,” said Scott Sigel, COO of the Helium Foundation. “With our expanded network integration and Senet’s managed services approach to onboarding and supporting solution providers, we look forward to entering more markets, faster and with more opportunity for scale.”
Senet’s Extended Coverage Services now include global LoRaWAN network connectivity delivered by more than 720,000 Helium-compatible hotspots in over 55,000 cities and 170 countries.
The Helium Network broadens coverage in areas where Senet has already deployed carrier-grade networks and provides access to LoRaWAN network connectivity for enterprise and consumer-grade devices where Senet has not yet deployed carrier-grade services.
As new hotspots are added to the global Helium Network, they will automatically contribute to Senet’s network coverage at no additional cost to customers.
