/ -- SenRa, a PAN India LoRaWAN network service provider, and myDevices, the Internet of Things solutions company, today announced the launch of IoT in a Box for the Indian market with the initial roll-out focused on providing end-to-end commercial refrigeration monitoring solutions. With India's IoT market poised to touch $15 billion USD by 2020, new and cost-effective solutions are an integral part of driving the market growth and IoT adoption in India. With over 90 million commercial refrigeration units in operation around the world, the global demand for commercial refrigeration equipment is expected to increase 4.5% each year through 2020. The collaboration between the two companies will help drive India's digital movement into industries yet to be penetrated in the Indian market. The IoT in a Box's commercial refrigeration temperature monitoring offering will now drive IoT adoption into industries such as retail, supply-chain management, logistics, healthcare, and even hospitality.

Leveraging the myDevices' IoT in a Box solution and SenRa's highly scalable LoRaWAN network services will allow businesses like pharmaceutical labs, supermarkets, corporate cafeterias, restaurants, hospitals, and food manufacturing units to better monitor and manage their refrigerators and deep-freezing units remotely and in real-time. IoT in a Box has already made significant impact on businesses across the globe, where businesses have demonstrated a large return on their investment and a massive reduction in resource allocation to address what now can be done from a mobile application on a phone.
"We are excited to bring myDevices' IoT in a Box solution offerings to the Indian market," said Ali Hosseini, CEO of SenRa. "This collaboration will allow us to increase adoption of LoRaWAN in India and in its mainstream market. IoT in a Box is an off-the-shelf solution which will rapidly enable digitalization PAN India."
SenRa and myDevices last year had announced their collaboration to provide SenRa's commercial grade network with myDevices IoT 'Cayenne' platform to simplify the creation, development and deployment of end-to-end solutions in a growing India IoT market. The launch of IoT in a Box in India is yet another major milestone for the companies' continued collaboration.
myDevices' IoT in a Box pre-packaged solutions empower SenRa to immediately offer out-of-the-box, LoRa technology products that can expand to many verticals across a variety of industries, including automated temperature monitoring for hospitals, hotels, and food service organizations," said Kevin Bromber, CEO and Founder of myDevices. "Businesses worldwide are required by law to monitor refrigeration temperatures for perishable goods. With IoT in a Box, they can automatically ensure food safety and reduce inventory loss, significantly reducing labor and operational costs associated with manual monitoring."

LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Network) is a broad term covering several implementations and protocols, both open-source and proprietary. While other wireless communication technologies available like Bluetooth and BLE (and to some extent Wi-Fi and ZigBee) are not suited for long-range performance, LPWAN provides the longest range with a low data rate. The technology used in a LoRaWAN network is designed to connect low-cost, battery-operated sensors over long distances in harsh environments that were previously too challenging or cost-prohibitive to connect. With its unique penetration capability, a LoRaWAN gateway deployed on a building or tower can connect to sensors more than 10 miles away or to water meters deployed underground or in basements.
About LoRa Alliance
The LoRa Alliance is an open, non-profit association that has grown to more than 500 members since its inception in March 2015, becoming one of the largest and fastest-growing alliances in the technology sector.
