Senet, a leading global provider of cloud-based software and services platforms to enable network connectivity build-out and management for the Internet of Things (IoT), recently announced that they are partnering with Neptune Technology Group, a pioneer in the development of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) technologies, to implement wireless Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) infrastructure technology for water metering applications throughout North America.
Neptune’s new, LoRa®-enabled L900™ series of water endpoints provides a wide range of capabilities for water meter reading and sensor applications that demand low power consumption and long-range connectivity. By combining these metering units with Senet’s highly scalable and reliable LoRa LPWAN, Neptune is equipped with a connectivity solution to help water utility customers and municipalities boost efficiencies and accelerate sustainability efforts at the best possible total cost of ownership.
“Together with Senet, we are providing an innovative solution that facilitates advanced metering infrastructure for water utilities, removing the burden of having to deploy and maintain the network infrastructure themselves,” Chuck Brunson, Director of Marketing at Neptune, said. “By implementing Neptune’s L900 system under a Senet-managed LoRaWAN network, cities and water utilities can implement Neptune’s value-added measurement, software and communication technologies – supporting their journey as Smart Cities. We are excited to engage in this partnership with Senet.”
“As utilities, municipalities and solution providers look at the total cost of ownership of IoT technologies LoRaWANä has key advantages that make it the preferred choice for a variety of applications, including water metering,” Bruce Chatterley, CEO and president of Senet, added. “We are excited to be working with Neptune to solve some of the most demanding connectivity requirements within the Internet of Things and bring real value to utilities throughout North America”.
