SINGAPORE – May 14, 2018 – by PRNewswire  UnaBiz, the exclusive network operator of Sigfox‘s low-power wide area network in Singapore and Taiwan, secures fresh funds from Taiwan Shin Kong Security Co. Ltd, a subsidiary of the Shin Kong Group.

UnaBiz launched Taiwan’s first nationwide IoT (Internet of Things) network in October last year at a rock-bottom monthly subscription price of NT$2 (US$0.07). The launch sparked exciting new opportunities for Taiwan as Sigfox allows government agencies and businesses to connect millions of devices simply, affordably and globally. The network currently covers more than 95 percent of population in both Singapore and Taiwan.

Headquartered in Taipei, Taiwan, Shin Kong Security is a public listed company, and one of the largest security service providers in Taiwan. The Shin Kong Group engages in a full range of financial products and services through its subsidiaries including life insurance, banking, securities, asset management, property brokerage and venture capital. The group also has significant presence in manufacturing, consumer, medical and public services.

“Shin Kong Security has been supporting clients with cloud computing and serial signal connection 24/7 since the beginning of its service. With the emergence of Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT), SKS will leverage on the expertise of UnaBiz to integrate AI and IoT to enhance smart learning and predictability in connected devices. We will dedicate more resources in the area of smart homes, elderly monitoring, robotics, green energy, smart surveillance, image recognition, to provide competitive, intelligent and innovative service in the security industry.” – Frank Hung, General Manager of Shin Kong Security.

“We are very excited to welcome Shin Kong Security as our new investor in Taiwan. The investment not only instil great confidence in UnaBiz, but it also encourages the entire security market to jump on the IoT bandwagon. With the network established, UnaBiz will focus on supporting early adopters of IoT by providing high quality, scalable and price-fit IoT solutions, including the offering of professional services.” – Philippe Chiu, Managing Director & Co-founder of UnaBiz Taiwan.
