Senet has announced it is significantly expanding the build out of its public network operating on the LoRaWAN standard across the Tampa Bay Metropolitan Region. With dense carrier-grade coverage already in place to support Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) for water utilities, Senet is expanding its network to cover over 1,600 square miles across Hillsborough and Pinellas Counties, including the cities of Tampa Bay and St. Petersburg. This network will be the largest and densest metropolitan deployment of public carrier-grade LoRaWAN connectivity in North America, providing capacity to support millions of IoT device connections from over 80 planned tower sites.
Due to gateway density and signal strength, the network will provide both broad outdoor coverage and indoor penetration, making Senet’s Tampa Bay Area public LoRaWAN network an ideal connectivity choice for energy and utility, municipal (Smart City), manufacturing and distribution, asset tracking and multi-location campus enterprise solutions, says Senet. Water and gas utility companies, for example, can enhance their service offerings by implementing additional infrastructure monitoring and safety applications such as leak detection, valve control and asset tracking, while municipalities and businesses can instrument their operations with low-cost sensors connected to Senet’s network to drive productivity and offer new services to their citizens and customers.
Senet’s Tampa Bay Area LoRaWAN network is being expanded on a rolling construction schedule and will be complete by the end of 2021. The network already has densely deployed areas and is available immediately for use in both pilots and commercial applications. To maximize the value this new digital infrastructure brings to the region, Senet is collaborating with regional organizations, partners and end customers to develop solution interest and understand unique application and coverage requirements.
Senet operates the largest and most densely deployed public carrier-grade LoRaWAN network in the United States, deployed in over in 29 states, covering over 1,300 cities, serving a population of over 55 million people and processing millions of transactions daily.
