Senet, Inc., a provider of cloud-based software and services platforms designed to enable global connectivity and network build-out for the Internet of Things (IoT), has announced a technology partnership with SimplyCity, an end-to-end IoT solution provider and systems integrator based in Australia.
SimplyCity provides smart city management solutions to Australian Councils for a variety of applications, including solar energy metering, control systems, optimised street lighting and pedestrian flow monitoring. By partnering with Senet for Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) connectivity and device management services, SimplyCity is able to help their clients transform legacy monitoring systems to modern IoT solutions, delivering cost savings, usage optimisation, increased energy efficiency and improved municipal planning.
“We selected Senet as our managed LoRaWAN network provider based upon their flexible coverage models, network planning and management capabilities, and reliable enterprise-level of service support,” said Ram Kuppusamy, director of SimplyCity. “This strategic partnership also allows us to take advantage of Senet’s vast ecosystem of certified sensor and gateway manufacturers from around the world.”
In collaboration with Senet, SimplyCity is currently implementing an environmental monitoring solution in a Western Australian salt mine. This flagship project will set the global standard for industrial-grade IoT projects at remote locations under harsh conditions.
Working closely with local farmers and governments, SimplyCity has also delivered several LoRaWAN-based agricultural productivity solutions under its SimplyFarm business unit and brand, and is enabling new data-driven critical infrastructure and asset management projects and services for communities, city planners and STEM school students through the deployment of a “Free to Use IoT Network”.
“We look forward to working with SimplyCity to provide IoT network connectivity and managed network services to support and scale customer IoT applications across many diverse markets,” said Bruce Chatterley, CEO at Senet. “SimplyCity has proven expertise solving problems for municipalities, farms and industrial organisations by integrating and sharing critical sensor data.
