Senet, MeterSYS Partner on Smart-City Solutions for Public Utilities

Senet, a provider of cloud-based software and services platforms to enable global connectivity and the on-demand network build-out for the Internet of Things (IoT), has announced a partnership with MeterSYS, a provider of smart-city and metering solutions for public utilities. Collaboration between the two companies focuses on deploying LoRaWAN-enabled networks for advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) and IoT devices across the United States through MeterSYS's SenthiSYS IoT service program.

Through this partnership, Senet and MeterSYS are providing utilities and local governments with IoT solutions for a range of municipal services, including water distribution, sewer collection, storm and flood water management, solid waste management, parking controls, fleet management, public safety, energy conservation and climate monitoring. Simplifying purchasing and deployment processes, public agencies can now acquire comprehensive LoRaWAN network planning and installation services, IoT device testing, and the customized and centralized SenthiSYS device data management system (DDMS) directly from MeterSYS.

"Providing end-to-end AMI and smart city IoT solutions through the Senet and MeterSYS partnership provides utilities and municipalities a single source to fully leverage infrastructure investments, boost efficiencies and accelerate sustainability efforts across a variety of public service operations," said Andy Honeycutt, the president and chief consulting officer at MeterSYS, in a prepared statement. "Senet's LoRaWAN network and flexible deployment options allow us to support the unique needs of our customers for automated meter reading and a broad range of smart city initiatives."

"We are excited to be partnering with MeterSYS to deliver innovation to public utilities and municipalities, helping to provide cost-savings, the ability to generate new service revenues and improved customer satisfaction," said Bruce Chatterley, Senet's CEO, in the prepared statement. "Forward-thinking cities have come to recognize that to realize the full value of IoT, they must deploy a secure and scalable network that supports multiple solutions and applications. Connecting municipalities with the robust networks deployed for water metering could mean a huge leap forward in the delivery of many connected city services."
