Senet, Inc., has announced a partnership with Digital Matter, a developer of battery-powered tracking devices and telematics software for asset and fleet management applications. Senet is a provider of cloud-based software and services platforms to enable global connectivity and the on-demand network build-out for the Internet of Things (IoT).
Through this collaboration, the companies have certified several Digital Matter LoRaWAN asset tracking sensors and completed the integration of Digital Matter’s Telematics Guru GPS tracking software platform with Senet’s global LoRaWAN network. Customers using Digital Matter sensors can now connect to the Senet network to visualise and act on location, asset usage and health data through the Telematics Guru platform, or interface the sensor data with their own cloud-based asset tracking applications via a simple API from Senet’s network service.
“We are excited to be partnering with Senet to provide our customers with immediate access to the fastest growing global LoRaWAN network and a robust set of services to rapidly extend coverage on-demand,” says Ken Everett, CEO at Digital Matter. “Senet’s flexible business models for deploying carrier-grade LoRaWAN networks where and when they are needed, provide a unique cost-optimised approach to implement and expand asset tracking solutions at scale.”
Using sensors, tags and other wireless technologies to track assets and goods is one of the fundamental use cases for the Internet of Things. It is also one of the most impactful, with trillions of dollars of economic value to be generated by asset supply and usage. The use of low cost, long-range LoRaWAN technology is facilitating the development of a new class of asset tracking solutions based on both GPS and LoRaWAN Geolocation capabilities for indoor, outdoor and hybrid asset tracking applications.
“The key to success in the rapidly expanding IoT and Low Power Wide Area Network market is standardisation, ecosystem strength, and scalable, cost-effective network coverage,” comments Bruce Chatterley, CEO at Senet. “The ease of integration with Digital Matter’s Telematics Guru, coupled with their support for over 150 different third-party tracking platforms, makes them an ideal partner to provide asset tracking and management products and services around the world.”
