The LoRa Alliance®, the global association of companies backing the open LoRaWAN® standard for the Internet of Things (IoT) low-power wide-area networks (LPWANs), announced that India-based SenRa has become the Platinum Sponsor of LoRaWAN Live!, taking place Oct. 17, 2019 at the Pullman New Delhi Aerocity Hotel. The event is focused on “Smart Tech for a Sustainable Planet,” and will showcase how the LoRaWAN standard is enabling a plethora of applications that enhance quality of life and environmental sustainability. As part of the sponsorship, SenRa CEO Ali Hosseini will deliver a keynote titled “LoRaWAN Drives India’s IoT Ecosystem” during the morning session.
“Strong market projections for LoRaWAN adoption in India and the Asia-Pacific region are precisely why the LoRa Alliance is coming to New Delhi in October,” said Donna Moore, CEO and Chairwoman of the LoRa Alliance. “We are strongly committed to supporting our members as they expand LoRaWAN deployments and backing them with the industry’s strongest certification program, to ensure devices in the field work as expected. We invite all device makers exploring IoT applications to join us to learn how the LoRaWAN Certification program can accelerate their development efforts and achieve rapid return on investment. I would also like to thank SenRa for becoming the platinum sponsor, and for all its efforts to promote LoRaWAN in India.”
According to industry research firm InForGrowth’s (IFG’s) 2019 Global LoRaWAN Market 2018–2026 report, the Asia-Pacific LoRaWAN market is expected to reach US $4,729.2M by 2026, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 51.4%. India itself is expected to outpace this growth at 53.6% CAGR during the same period of time.
“There is no question that India is a rapidly growing market for LoRaWAN technology,” said Hosseini. “We’re driving adoption of the standard with an aggressive rollout of LoRaWAN networks—having just announced our 50th city deployment in India—and are on track to deploy networks in 100 cities by the end of next year. With these networks, and our product and service solutions, SenRa and LoRaWAN will play a major role in the development of Smart Cities in India. We are proud to support the LoRa Alliance and this year’s LoRaWAN Live! event, and encourage everyone who wants to learn more about this exciting technology to join us on Oct. 17.”
