Senet, the first and only North American provider of public, low-power, wide-area networks (LPWANs) for long range-based (LoRa®-based) Internet of Things (IoT) applications, was awarded the 2016 Manufacturer of the Year, Small-Medium Enterprise by the Frost & Sullivan Manufacturing Leadership Council for its IoT technology leadership. The company was recognized for its successful LoRa LPWA network build out to 100 U.S. cities and positive return on investment (ROI) generated by EnerTrac, the LoRa-based IoT propane delivery solution deployed on the Senet network this last year.

“Earning this prestigious award is another proof point of Senet’s IoT leadership and executional strength of our team,” said George Dannecker, president and CEO of Senet. “It demonstrates the market-proven technology benefits of Senet’s LoRa-based LPWA network and the significant bottom line savings and efficiencies that businesses can achieve deploying LoRa IoT applications over the Senet network.”

Now in its 12th year, Frost & Sullivan’s Manufacturing Leadership (ML) Awards honors organizations and individuals that are shaping the future of global manufacturing. Award nominations were entered into 13 categories, evaluated and scored by a panel of industry experts.

Out of the 100 ML award nominees for this year’s program, two companies were selected for their projects, one for large enterprise businesses and one for the small-medium sized enterprise companies. Senet was named the 2016 Manufacturer of the Year, Small-Medium Enterprise and General Electric (GE) received top honors as the Manufacturer of the Year, Large Enterprise.

Winning the 2016 Frost & Sullivan Manufacturer of the Year Award, Small-Medium Enterprise highlights Senet’s continued growth and market momentum. Earlier this month, the company announced LoRa LPWAN coverage in 100 US cities and international roaming agreement with the French IoT LPWAN service provider, Objenius. Last week, the company launched the Senet Foundry, a special IoT developer program to accelerate development and deployment of LoRa applications for the Senet network.
