SenRa, a pan-India LoRaWan public network operator, and French LPWAN firm Actility are working together to accelerate LoRaWan adoption across the globe.

SenRa’s expertise in connectivity services and data analytics coupled with Actility’s product portfolio allows for rapid deployments of LoRaWan across many IoT segments such as smart cities, industrial IoT, smart buildings, logistics and supply chain, not only in India, but across the globe.

The companies have already implemented go-to-market strategies to deploy end-to-end services 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 based on LoRaWan, such as SenRa’s uFind end-to-end smart tracking.

Abeeway, a subsidiary of Actility, offers energy-efficient, reliable and flexible geolocation using tracking devices and a smart multi-technology location system optimised for LoRaWan connectivity. The partners are now deploying products for human safety and asset management in airports, factories and, more recently, in the defence sector.

An additional benefit of the partnership is the ability to combine Actility’s proximity and contact tracing technology with Abeeway’s devices, jointly safeguarding citizens in India in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. This alerts people who do not comply with the Covid-19 safety guidelines. Together, SenRa and Abeeway say they are combining their knowledge in wireless communication and tracking to keep people safe and healthy.

“Actility offers a variety of personal safety, proximity and asset management which enable us to address our customer’s needs,” said SenRa’s CEO Ali Hosseini. “We are already working together on several projects in wildlife conservation, smart factories and the defence sector and we look forward to the continued collaboration.”

Olivier Hersent, CEO at Actility, added: “Our collaboration with SenRa is enabling a faster adoption of IoT in India through the expansion of LoRaWans and help both companies in offering advanced solutions not only to customers from India, but globally.”

SenRa, a contributing member of the LoRa Alliance, is deploying LPWANs throughout India for projects that require secure, reliable, long distance communication at low cost.
