Senet and TrackNet have showcased an interoperability and roaming demonstration highlighting the TrackNet Tabs consumer solution running over Senet’s public Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) in Las Vegas. Tabs are an All-in-one, subscription-free, long-range wireless locator and smart home solution for keeping your home and family safe. Roaming between the Senet network and the TrackNet TrackCentral network for Tabs is the first production demonstration of the recently released LoRaWAN specifications in the world, and the first large-scale roaming demonstration using LoRaWAN.
The key to success in the rapidly expanding IoT and Low Power Wide Area Network market is standardization, ecosystem strength, and scalable, cost effective network coverage. The LoRaWAN specification release 1.1 is instrumental in defining roaming and interoperability between different LoRaWAN network deployments. The 1.1 specification was released in October 2017 and Senet and TrackNet are the first to demonstrate roaming per 1.1 in a large-scale deployment. The demonstration of the Tabs solution with the Senet network at CES highlights the ease of interoperability with LoRaWAN which is the key to success for scaling production ecosystem solutions in network deployments around the world. The inside-out deployment model with low cost indoor gateways enabled by Tabs is a critical differentiator for LoRaWAN to enable cost effective and scalable network deployment. A hybrid strategy of low cost indoor gateways mixed with cost effective outdoor elevated point access is critical to the success of LPWAN.
TrackNet provides highly scalable LoRaWAN IoT solutions for consumers and industry, focusing on ease of use and unparalleled scalability to enable a new era of exponentially growing LPWAN deployments for a sustainable world. The company’s first commercial product is the Tabs all-in-one monitoring system, which demonstrates TrackNet’s ability to develop end-to-end solutions including sensors, gateways, network server and apps with optimized user experience. The company is a contributing member of the LoRa Alliance and the TrackNet team has been instrumental in specifying, building, and establishing LoRaWAN and the LoRa Alliance for more than five years.
TrackNet and Senet are demonstrating at the LoRa Alliance booth at CES 2018.
