Senet, Inc. has announced joining forces with CNIguard and Semtech Corporation to provide natural gas monitoring solutions to utilities across the United States.

FREMONT, CA: Senet, Inc., a provider of cloud-based software and services platforms that allows worldwide connectivity and on-demand network buildouts for the Internet of Things (IoT), has announced joining forces with CNIguard and Semtech Corporation to provide natural gas monitoring solutions to utilities across the United States. Through this collaboration, the organization refers to the utility industry's digitization necessities by delivering an intelligent network infrastructure developed to support a massive ecosystem of utility centric LoRaWAN devices for gas safety and service delivery.

Beginning with gas safety, the organizations are collaborating to launch the latest version of CNIguards GasMarshal methane sensor, which assimilates Semtech's LoRa devices and the LoRaWAN procedure. The CNIguard network-connected gas leak detection solution supports precise, maintenance-free operation with service level agreements (SLAs) over ten years due to its battery-operated devices' market-leading power efficiency. CNIguard will also be assimilating its solution with Senet's LoRaWAN network, the largest public, SLA-backed carrier-grade LoRaWAN network in the United States. Providing widespread flexibility to utilities, Senet offers public, private, and semi-private network deployment and network operation choices. The low total cost of ownership (TCO) provided by the efficiencies of devices developed with the LoRaWAN protocol, coupled with flexible network deployment models, enables new levels of operational effectiveness and ratepayer affordability.

"We're excited to be working with Senet and Semtech to develop sensor-enabled devices and solutions that will help modernize critical infrastructure, enhance safety and improve overall operational efficiency for utilities," said Edward Klinger, CEO at CNIguard. "Our utility customers are investing in the technologies that will enable the next generation of energy systems and we view supporting the LoRaWAN protocol as a critical element of that process."

"Senet has commercially deployed dense LoRaWAN networks in municipalities across the United States to support AMI for water metering and water management applications, and opportunities in the natural gas market are following close behind," said Bruce Chatterley, CEO at Senet. "We look forward to a successful partnership with CNIguard in support of this growing market opportunity and are excited to be teamed with Semtech and CNIguard to deliver new levels of commercial and consumer safety through IoT connected solutions."
