Senet is the first and fastest growing North American provider of public LPWANs for long range-based (LoRa-based) Internet of Things (IoT) applications. Now they’re announcing a partnership with Paige Ag, manufacturer and supplier of wire, cables, cable assemblies and electrical accessories to offer “smart” irrigation to growers.
With device connectivity over very long ranges (~15 miles), very long battery power life (~10 years) and an extremely low per-device cost, LPWANs and LoRa®-compatible products are changing the paradigm of farming efficiency and transforming the way things are monitored and measured. LPWANs are ideal for gathering data about local agricultural conditions including weather, soil moisture, chemical compositions of the soil and other environmental conditions at a much lower total cost of ownership. Furthermore, LPWANs make it possible to expand per-acre coverage and monitor more assets due to the simplicity of deployment and cost of ownership reductions.
“Senet’s highly scalable and reliable low-power, wide-area network provides a significant opportunity for our agriculture customers looking to use empirical data to improve operational planning and decision making,” said Julie Bushell, Director of Sales and Marketing for Paige’s Agwire Division. “Based on market demand and proven use cases, we are initially focusing on delivering LoRa®-based irrigation solutions to help our customers capture real economic value from the Internet of Things.”
