Senet, Inc., a provider of cloud-based software and services platforms that enable global connectivity and on-demand network build-outs for the Internet of Things (IoT), announced a partnership with Symmetry Electronics, a global distributor of wireless, IoT, and video technologies.
Together, the companies are simplifying access to a robust combination of components and developer tools, reducing the number of steps to prototype, test, and launch commercial-grade LoRaWAN solutions.
In addition to several new LoRa modules, gateways and sensors that have been added to Symmetry Electronics’ line card, the distributor is providing OEMs and design engineers access to Senet’s carrier-grade LoRaWAN network directly from their dedicated LoRa Technology page. Through a simple sign up process, Symmetry Electronics’ customers can create an account on the Senet Developer Portal to access the Senet network to onboard and test LoRaWAN end device sensors and gateways throughout the design cycle and into production.
“Our customers demand the highest quality components and development resources for prototyping and production deployments,” said Wen Hsu, director of sales at Symmetry Electronics. “By partnering with Senet to deliver LoRaWAN developer resources and carrier-grade network services, we can confidently address our customers’ demand for low-power, long-range IoT connectivity.”
In addition to the distribution of LoRa products, Symmetry Electronics provides technical expertise and support through Symmetry’s team of trained application engineers. Customers looking for assistance in designing their electronic device can contact a Symmetry application engineer free of charge throughout the design cycle. Once development is complete, device manufacturers can engage with Solutions Engineering resources from Senet to complete testing on the Senet network and submit their product to be listed on the Senet Marketplace.
“We are excited to be working with Symmetry Electronics to streamline the development and delivery of commercial-grade LoRaWAN products,” said Bruce Chatterley, CEO at Senet. “With easy access to best-of-breed hardware and fewer steps needed to develop and deploy end-to-end solutions, customers can expect tangible cost and time-saving benefits throughout each step of their IoT development initiatives.”
