Semtech Corporation, a leading supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, announced that Senet, a leading North American provider of public low power, wide area networks (LPWANs) for long-range Internet of Things (IoT) applications, won the 2016 Product of the Year award from IoT Evolution for its LPWANs across North America featuring Semtech LoRa wireless RF technology.

Senet, which recently announced network rollouts to expand coverage to over 100 new cities in the U.S., is a leading provider of LoRa-based LPWANs in North America. Through its various initiatives to help scale IoT adoption, including its robust network of LPWANs, its newly announced foundry to help accelerate development and deployment of LoRa-based IoT applications, and its microcell base station soltutions, Senet has established itself as a leader in the growing IoT ecosystem.

Senet’s LPWANs are enabled by Semtech LoRa technology, a two-way wireless solution uniquely developed for IoT. By utilizing LoRa technology and the LoRaWAN™ specification, Senet can offer longer range, greater battery life, reduced infrastructure costs, guaranteed interoperability and more.

“Senet is committed to scaling IoT adoption and is very deserving of this distinguished award,” said Jaap Groot, Vice President of System Business Development for Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Product Group. “By continuing to expand its LoRa-based LPWAN in North America and launching services to educate companies about LoRa IoT solutions, Senet is setting the stage for wide adoption and implementation of IoT throughout the U.S. and North America.”

“LoRa technology is a key enabler of our vast network of LPWANs and continued network rollout throughout North America,” said Will Yapp, Vice President of Business Development, Senet. “This award is a testament to our extensive efforts to take a standards-driven approach to LoRa IoT application adoption.”

Semtech and Senet are members of the LoRa Alliance™, a group of over 300 companies committed to driving and enhancing the LoRaWAN specification to ensure interoperability and scalability of LPWANs and IoT applications. Through its work with member companies and IoT industry groups, the LoRa Alliance is making LoRaWAN the standard for LPWANs focused on low power, long-range IoT applications. To date, there are LoRaWAN public and private networks in more than 50 countries worldwide.
