Skipper Xavier Macaire puts SIGFOX to the test for boat tracking

Skipper Xavier Macaire puts SIGFOX to the test for boat tracking | SIGFOX | Scoop.it
SIGFOX's insight:

Xavier Macaire, one of the leading French skippers in the figaro class, has put SIGFOX to the test as a tracking solution during his course in the Generali Solo 2013 boat race, in which he finished 2nd after an amazingly well executed race (well done Xavier!).


Xavier used a SIGFOX compatible tracking device to transmit his position every 10 minutes during the course of the race and although Xavier was at times kilometers from the coast line, all messages were picked up by the already deployed terrestrial SIGFOX network.


SIGFOX has created a partnership with Xavier Macaire in order to showcase one of the endless possibilities offered by the SIGFOX network. The long range of the SIGFOX network provides new opportunities for applications that go well beyond the limits of the coast line.


We wish Xavier, and the rest of the skippers, the best of luck for the 2013 edition of the Generali Solo boat race.

A New IoT Cellular Network

A New IoT Cellular Network | SIGFOX | Scoop.it
It’s not every day that a major infrastructure build-out happens.

Imagine that you wanted to switch from your current cable provider, but you wanted to stay with cable technology. The only way you could do that (other than finding some reseller that leverages the cable you’re trying to escape) would be for a competing company to come dig up your town and install a whole new parallel network. Yeah, not likely to happen. (Which is why the incumbent cable companies can act like the monopolies they are.)

Similarly with cell networks, although slightly less so. Here in the US, we started with two providers per geography. Obviously, we have grown beyond that by now, and yet, for the most part, US coverage is dominated by two companies. Others, like Metro PCS, have cherry-picked markets and users, limiting their build-out. But the prospect of a completely new cell provider installing a completely new network to compete with the entrenched big guys seems exceedingly unlikely.
