Partnership IoT: T-Systems and Senet Get Together on Connected Solutions

The first week of March was another busy one in the ever-evolving world of IoT and Industrial IoT (IIoT), with one of the most interesting announcements pairing Senet and T-Systems North America (TSNA) in an integrated solution and go-to-market partnership.

TSNA (a wholly owned subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom and large digital services provider) is leveraging Senet’s IoT connectivity and cloud software to bring their first array of bundled IoT and IIoT solutions to businesses, enterprises and organization at scale.

Through the partnership, T-Systems today offers IoT solution bundles including LoRaWAN sensors, gateways, Senet network connectivity plans, and integration with the T-Systems Cloud of Things IoT platform for application management and expansion.

The IoT bundles provide useful data in real-time, enabling enterprises across industries to make crucial business decisions. What may distinguish the partnership most is the all-inclusive monthly pricing, making the solutions and services easier to buy and manage, with more transparency in the commercials than other similar solutions. This includes a co-developed and co-delivered platform the companies say simplifies the deployment and management of intelligent sensors and controls.

“End to end solutions in a fragmented Internet of Things universe is what T-Systems offers to not only innovate but add value to customers across all industries,” said Alex Martinez, Head of Emerging Technologies for T-Systems. “Our ability to provide accurate and repeatable valuable data and selecting the best ecosystem partners, like Senet, delivers a win-win for our mutual end-customers.”

These fully integrated solutions ensure interoperability and ease of deployment, providing greater productivity at lower cost. Flexible network deployment models, access to a rich set of cloud-based tools for application management, and world-class professional services and support allow customers to scale their deployments and implement additional IoT solutions on the same LoRaWAN network as their business needs expand.

“Our partnership with T-Systems is an example of how the LoRaWAN ecosystem has rapidly matured to provide fully integrated solutions and tangible benefits to customers across markets,” said Bruce Chatterley, CEO at Senet. “With fewer steps to acquire, deploy, and scale end-to-end IoT solutions, we’re creating new opportunities for innovation by helping connect devices and data to applications and action.”

Bundles include:

  • Security. Detects motion, presence, and open/close states in restricted spaces.
  • CO2 Detection. Indoor pollutant detection prevents human exposure to CO2.
  • Water Leak Detection. Detects moisture and water for flood avoidance.
  • Comfort Management. Visible light sensing with temperature and humidity monitoring for Smart Room applications.
  • Illumination Management. Environmental light sensing automates lighting in offices and large indoor spaces.
  • Desk/Chair Occupancy. Monitors individual desk/chair usage to maximize space use.
  • Irrigation Control. Provides Volumetric Water Content (VWC), temperature, and electric conductivity measurements for agriculture and smart city applications.
  • Refrigeration. Measures refrigerator temperatures for regulatory compliance and product inventory management.
  • Panic Button. Emergency notification system for workplace staff.
