Base Station Software

Base Stations provide the wireless network access for the End Devices, relaying data to and from the Senet Network Server via IP backhaul (Ethernet, Wi-Fi, 3 or 4 G cellular or satellite). As part of relaying data from End Devices, Gateways include RF meta-data about the data’s reception characteristics. The Network Server in turn leverages this information in real time to optimize the End Device.

Base Stations are deployed to meet application, geographical, and End Device density coverage requirements. Coverage depends on topology characteristics and varies among rural, suburban, and urban environments. To meet these various needs, Gateways are available in a variety of sizes and may be deployed to provide indoor and outdoor coverage.

In order to integrate your Gateway with Senet's Network, it must be on-boarded. This process involves:

Once approval is received your Gateway's packet forwarder will communicate with Senet's network. The level of security depends on the packet forwarder implementation. Currently Senet supports the following Packet Forwarder options:
