Senet, the first and only North American provider of public low-power wide-area networks for long-range  Internet of Things (IoT) applications, has received a 2016 IoT Evolution Product of the Year Award from the editors of IoT Evolution magazine, the leading publication covering IoT technologies.

The company was recognized for the growth and innovation of its LoRa-based multi-tenant LPWA network, which recently announced expansion of coverage to 100 U.S. cities. In addition, judges cited the performance and positive return on investment (ROI) of EnerTrac, the LoRa-based IoT fuel-delivery solution deployed on the Senet network.

“Senet is honored to receive IoT Evolution’s 2016 IoT Evolution Product of the Year Award,” said Will Yapp, Vice President of Business Development, Senet. “Earning this prestigious award is recognition of Senet’s IoT industry leadership as businesses, solution providers and application developers recognize the technology benefits of Senet’s LPWAN network and the strong business case for LoRa IoT applications proven by the continued success of EnerTrac.”

“The solutions selected for the IoT Evolution Product of Year Award reflect the diverse range of innovation driving the machine-to-machine market. It is my honor to congratulate Senet for their innovative work and superior contribution to the rapidly evolving IoT industry,” said Carl Ford, CEO of Crossfire Media, a co-publisher of IoT Evolution magazine.

Senet is riding a wave of market momentum as it continues to expand the reach and capacity of its North American IoT LPWA network in order to support a growing ecosystem of LoRa applications running over its network. This summer, the company announced LoRa LPWAN coverage in 100 U.S. cities and introduced the Senet Foundry, a special IoT developer program to accelerate development and deployment of LoRa applications.

Earlier this spring, the company announced the availability of two microcell base station solutions as part of Senet’s expanded suite of LPWA network-as-a-service offerings. These 8-channel microcells, available in indoor and outdoor versions, augment Senet’s high-capacity 64-channel macrocells. The addition of these smaller base stations dramatically expands the breadth of LoRa applications that can be deployed on the Senet network, enabling faster time to market at a reduced cost.

“It is my pleasure to recognize Senet’s LoRa-based LPWAN, an innovative solution that earned Senet the 2016 IoT Evolution Product of the Year Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “I look forward to seeing more innovation from Senet in the future.”

As the first and only standards-based LPWAN provider, Senet delivers wireless network connectivity for sensor-based IoT applications based on LoRa. EnerTrac is an example of a LoRa-based application running on Senet’s LPWA network. This IoT heating fuel-delivery automation solution is deployed in multiple regions in the U.S. and generates big savings for its customers (heating fuel dealers and distributors, including farming cooperatives). This LoRa-based service provides long-distance, low-cost data acquisition through smart devices and sensor technology. Due to the operational efficiencies realized with EnerTrac, fuel dealers are achieving 30 percent or more in annual cost savings.
