Monogoto, the cloud-based global cellular connectivity provider, is pleased to welcome CBRSense into its network. CBRSense is the first multi-purpose low-power IoT sensor that communicates over private networks.
Monogoto partnered with SODAQ, an IoT hardware company specialising in developing IoT solutions and Sequans Communications SA, a leading provider of cellular IoT chips and modules for massive and broadband IoT build CBRSense.
Integrating a low-power, battery-operated IoT sensor to the CBRS network introduces a step-change in the range of previously unsupported devices. CBRSense opens a world of possibilities to multiple industries that choose CBRS as a network. Compared to what is currently on the market, the new low-cost sensor can be run from any location and enjoys a long-life cycle of more than a year.
This successful collaboration began when Sequans strategically allowed low-power modems into CBRS networks, enabling SODAQ’s sensors to integrate with private networks.

CBRS (citizens broadband radio service) refers to a spectrum block at 3.5 GHz, allocated by the FCC for public use. This provides enterprises with an efficient way to build their private LTE networks. For meaningful CBRS growth to occur, network capabilities require further development, which will lead to more use cases.
The future of 5G development depends on different use cases within the same network (network slicing). CBRSense demonstrates use cases for the CBRS network previously dominated by high-speed CAT 12 CPE’s and UE use cases.
Monogoto CEO Itamar Kunik states: “We are very pleased to be the first network capable of hosting such a wide array of low-power devices. Our partnership with SODAQ and Sequans was a true collaboration in every sense allowing us to drive this innovation into the CBRS ecosystem.”
