Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the inter-networks of objects that communicate with other objects or computers through a network. These “Things” may include virtually any objects embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity to collect and exchange data, communicate or control objects remotely. In other words, IoT potentially includes a large number of interconnected objects that connect the physical world to the virtual world, resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit.
Previously, these connected devices rely heavily on Cellular, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth network. Those technologies are expensive to adopt and maintain, not to mention high in power consumption. As our requirement for these objects expands, we need new technologies that are power efficient, low cost and simple to deploy at a massive scale. We need to connect these devices with a low-power wide-area network, that is Sigfox.
The rapid growing popularity of the internet of things has led to the rise of LPWAN. LPWAN is a technology designed to be low power, low cost and wide range. The perfect fit for IoT. As the internet of things revolution takes place, more and more wireless devices are deployed rapidly around the world in large volumes. With LPWAN, these devices are given life through connectivity that complement their needs in the form of low power, low cost and wide range for high volume and full autonomy. As such, 4 billion IoT devices have been forecasted to rely on LPWAN technologies by 2025!
Sigfox is the world’s first and largest IoT network. Solutions enabled with the Sigfox chip can be distributed in 45 countries worldwide where the network is present with no roaming charges under a single contract.
Sigfox devices are ultra energy efficient due to low data payloads and low signalling overhead. Enjoy extended battery life compared to cellular or wifi-connected devices. Self-powering devices are also available too!
Sigfox is designed for simplicity. Forget complicated and expensive private networks or gateways. Connect without Wi-Fi and Bluetooth pairing. Simply Plug & Play.
Sigfox's unique communication method and low energy consumption device-to-cloud lower CAPEX and OPEX drastically. Deploy your IoT solutions massively, globally and instantly at a fraction of the cost compared to other networks.
