Senet, Inc.1, and CalChip Connect2, today announced a partnership to bring Senet compatible LoRaWAN® gateways and sensor-enabled end devices to market through the CalChip Connect e-commerce platform.
With LoRaWAN becoming one of the fastest growing technology standards being adopted for highly scalable Internet of Things solution deployments, this partnership allows Senet Radio Access Network (RAN) partners, vertical market solution providers, and end customers to shorten their deployment times and accelerate a return on investment knowing they are working with LoRaWAN hardware and network connectivity that has been pre-qualified to be interoperable.
Through this value-add distribution agreement, a growing number of Senet compatible LoRaWAN gateways and end-devices are available for purchase in volume, with CalChip Connect managing inventory levels, warehousing, and shipping on behalf of the original equipment manufacturers. CalChip will also be providing customized, pre-provisioned solution bundles and direct shipping to end customers, supporting rapid deployment and enhancing the customer’s out-of-the-box experience.
“With fewer steps required to deploy an end-to-end solution and value-added services built into the procurement processes, this announcement is an example of how the LoRaWAN ecosystem has matured to provide tangible cost and time-saving benefits to customers ready to deploy solutions today,” said Bruce Chatterley, CEO of Senet.
“Partnering with CalChip Connect provides our customers with state-of-the-art e-commerce and logistics services designed specifically for the needs of the IoT industry, delivering value throughout the purchasing and fulfillment process.”
