LPWAN provider Senet on Monday announced Bruce Chatterley will be taking over as CEO with the retirement of outgoing head George Dannecker. Chatterley has also been elected to Senet’s Board of Directors.
The company said Chatterley brings to the table more than 25 years of experience in business leadership, transformation, strategy, and technology and a strong track record of rapidly building and scaling worldwide operations and organizational infrastructure in a variety of hyper-growth sectors, including telecommunications, cloud computing, managed hosting, and mobility. As CEO, he will reportedly focus on developing strategic partnerships and executing go-to-market strategies in the segments LoRaWAN connectivity is ideally suited for.
“I’m thrilled to be joining the Senet team at such an exciting time,” Chatterley commented. “As we continue to add capabilities for our customers and expand our presence, our mission remains unchanged – to help ensure that IoT realizes its full potential of delivering global economic, environmental, and social improvements.”
The company on Monday separately announced a new portfolio of cloud-based Managed Network Services for IoT that enable Communication Service Providers (CSP) to deploy LoRaWAN services on their physical assets, supervise the network infrastructure, manage connectivity and control roles, and access rights within a reliable and scalable solution.
Verizon recently held an emergency response demonstration in Perry, Ga., alongside Nokia, Aegex, and other technology companies. The demonstration reenacted five crisis situations – an F4 tornado with major casualties, residential flooding, a chemical building collapse, a subway terror attack, and an active shooter situation – to show emergency responders how their technologies can facilitate a smooth response.
Technologies on display included mobile cell sites and tethered airborne 4G LTE; tactical 360-degree surveillance; autonomous vehicles, unmanned aerial systems, and remotely operated robotic systems; chemical detection and decontamination systems; remote telemedicine support and IoT applications; software-defined perimeter, SDN/SD-WAN and VNS solutions; and secure cloud apps and advanced data security solutions.
The heads of AT&T and T-Mobile were among more than 150 CEOs from top companies to sign on to the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion, a commitment to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace. By signing on to this commitment, the industry heads are pledging to take action to cultivate a workplace where diverse perspectives and experiences are welcomed and respected, where employees feel encouraged to discuss diversity and inclusion, and where best known—and unsuccessful—actions can be shared across organizations via a unified hub, CEOAction.com, in an effort to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
“At its core, diversity is not about tolerating our differences – it’s about understanding them. And that requires a commitment to honest and open dialogue,” AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson commented. “I’m proud to work with my fellow CEOs to help make that a reality in the workplace.”
