T-Systems bundles Senet’s LoRaWAN airtime and support for US enterprises
The US arm of T-Systems, Deutsche Telekom’s digital services division, is bundling LoRaWAN connectivity plans and hardware offers from US-based Senet with its own IoT platform.
Senet said it had struck a deal for T-Systems to resell its network connectivity plans and IoT solutions with the German firm’s Cloud of Things IoT platform for application management and expansion. The arrangement is for US-based enterprises seeking to deploy IoT connectivity solutions.
Senet is offering cloud-based tools for application management, plus professional services and support into the bargain. It said the bundles support both indoor and outdoor vertical applications, and include all-inclusive airtime pricing, alongside LoRaWAN-based sensors, devices, and gateways, and integrated solutions for various applications.
The company cited solutions for security, carbon dioxide, and water leak detection, variously monitoring for motion, presence, air, and moisture. T-Systems is also reselling LoRaWAN-based solutions for light, temperature, and humidity monitoring, automated smart lighting, desk/chair occupancy, irrigation control, fridge temperatures, and emergency panic buttons.
Alex Martinez, head of emerging technologies at T-Systems, said: “End to end solutions in a fragmented IoT universe is what T-Systems offers to not only innovate, but add value to customers across all industries. Our ability to provide accurate and repeatable valuable data and selecting the best ecosystem partners, like Senet, delivers a win-win for our mutual end-customers.”
Bruce Chatterley, chief executive at Senet, said: “Our partnership with T-Systems is an example of how the LoRaWAN ecosystem has rapidly matured to provide fully integrated solutions and tangible benefits to customers across markets. With fewer steps to acquire, deploy, and scale end-to-end IoT solutions, we’re creating new opportunities for innovation by helping connect devices and data to applications and action.”
