PAN-India LoRaWAN public network operator SenRA has forged a partnership with Actility, a provider of industrial grade LPWAN connectivity solutions, in a bid to hasten LoRaWAN adoption across the sub-continent.
Furthermore, both companies see the combination of SenRA’s expertise in connectivity services and data analytics and Actility’s advanced product portfolio will enable them to be players in the international market, extending their reach beyond India.
“Our collaboration with SenRA is enabling a faster adoption of IoT solutions in India through the expansion of LoRaWAN networks and help both companies in offering advanced solutions not only to customers from India, but globally,” said Olivier Hersent, CEO at Actility
The partnership allows rapid deployments of LoRaWAN solutions across many IoT segments such as smart cities, industrial IoT, smart buildings, and logistics and supply chain. The two companies have already implemented go-to-market strategies to deploy end-to-end solutions across many verticals.
The seamless integration of Actility’s ThingPark Enterprise private network server and Abeeway asset management devices extends SenRA’s product portfolio to include reliable indoor and outdoor tracking solutions based on LoRaWAN, such as SenRA’s end-to-end smart tracking solution, uFind.
Abeeway, a subsidiary of Actility, offers energy-efficient, reliable and flexible geolocation solutions using unique tracking devices and a smart multi-technology location system optimised for LoRaWAN® connectivity. The partners are now deploying solutions for human safety and asset management in airports, factories, and, more recently, in the defense sector.
“Actility offers a variety of personal safety, proximity and asset management solutions which enable us to address our customer’s needs,” said SenRA’s chief executive officer, Ali Hosseini. “We are already working together on several projects in wildlife conservation, smart factories, and the defense sector and we look forward to the continued collaboration.”
An additional benefit of the partnership is the ability to combine Actility’s Proximity & Contact Tracing solutions with Abeeway’s devices, jointly safeguarding citizens in India in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The solution alerts people who do not comply with the COVID-19 safety guidelines.
Together, SenRA and Abeeway are combining their knowledge in wireless communication and tracking solutions to keep people safe and healthy.
