LoRaWAN duo Senet and Objenious fast-track Digital Matter IoT trackers
US LoRaWAN provider Senet and French LoRaWAN provider Objenious have both certified battery-operated tracking devices and telematics software from Australian IoT maker Digital Matter. The certification means ready integration and faster deployment of Digital Matter devices on LoRaWAN infrastructure from Senet and Objenious.
Senet has certified and integrated Digital Matter’s Telematics Guru GPS tracking software platform. Objenious has certified its Oyster GPS and Guppy geolocation tags. Tracking sensors and ‘tags’ remain a key use case in the IoT space; LoRaWAN-based sensors combining GPS for two-level geolocation are an option for indoor, outdoor and hybrid asset tracking applications.
“It is one of the most impactful (use cases), with trillions of dollars of economic value to be generated by asset supply and usage,” commented Senet.
Senet said customers using Digital Matter sensors can connect to its LoRaWAN network to visualize 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 an API from Senet’s network service.
Objenious said Digital Matter’s Oyster GPS and Guppy geolocation tag provide theft prevention and recovery, and enable preventative maintenance planning and operations optimisation on LoRaWAN networks.
Ken Everett, chief executive at Digital Matter, said: “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. Senet’s flexible business models for deploying carrier-grade LoRaWAN networks where and when they are needed, provide a unique cost-optimized approach to implement and expand asset tracking solutions at scale.”
He said of the Oyster GPS and Guppy tag, in light of their certification with Objenious: “We developed our own LoRaWAN stack optimised for low-power asset tracking operations, simplicity and robustness. It is critical for us to be agile and move quickly on supporting new regions and features. Using our LoRaWAN stack, we own the source code and have full control over it, which allows us to adapt quickly to rapidly evolving environments as needed.”
Bruce Chatterley, chief executive at Senet, remarked: “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 ease of integration with Digital Matter, 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.”
