Developers vie to create the communications standard of choice for the IoT | SIGFOX | Scoop.it

SIGFOX's insight:

“All the pieces were coming together, except for connectivity. It was still too complex, too expensive and too power hungry. We wanted to lower these barriers and maybe to get rid of some.”

SIGFOX's insight:

This is what Sigfox says makes it ideal for IoT devices. Relying on unlicensed spectrum, particularly the 900 MHz band in the U.S., the Sigfox network "whispers" data rather than "shouts" it, according to Sigfox president of North America Allen Proithis.
