Nationwide low power wide area Internet of Things network expected to be ready in two years time
“This collaboration with ENGIE is exciting and significant on two levels,” said Rodolphe Baronnet-Frugès, SIGFOX executive vice president of networks and operators. “First, it brings the many benefits of SIGFOX’s Internet of Things connectivity to businesses, governments and other users in Belgium and, second, it expands our relationship with the ENGIE Group, a global leader in solving the most pressing energy and environmental challenges.”
French startup Sigfox continues to expand, bringing its low-power, wide-area IoT network into 100 cities by the end of 2016.
“The U.S. is a huge growth market for Internet of Things connectivity, especially in smart cities, utilities, shipping and agriculture sectors that require large-scale and cost-effective communication,” said Allen Proithis, president of Sigfox North America
“This is an exciting partnership for SIGFOX since Omantel is a highly innovative telecom provider that is committed to offering its business and residential customers a broad suite of services, including SIGFOX global IoT connectivity,” said Thierry Siminger, president of SIGFOX Middle East and Africa (MEA). “This deployment in the Sultanate of Oman also is a major milestone in SIGFOX’s expansion in the MEA region”.
Rapid Rollout Will Enable New IoT Solutions, More Pervasive Industry 4.0 And Continuous Coverage from Mediterranean Sea to Scandinavia. SIGFOX, the world’s leading provider of communications service dedicated to the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced plans to deploy the SIGFOX network across Germany, the world’s fourth-largest economy. The deployment marks the 14th country where ...
“Germany is a very important market for SIGFOX and our commitment to deploy a national network reflects this. SIGFOX is building a strong ecosystem of partners across the IoT value chain and Germany has many market-leading companies whose influence extends worldwide.”
Three winners that used sensors and GPS trackers to gather various types of data were named following the 48-hour hackathon.
The hackathon generated some really good use cases and basically prototype or experimental proof of concept that some of these things could be accomplished with IoT enablement,” said San Francisco CIO Miguel Gamiño
Analysts predict there could be 50billion devices connected to the Internet of Things (IoT) within the next few years. But while many agree on the IoT’s potential in a wide range of market sectors, there remains very little indication of applications being rolled out. For the moment, it looks like the IoT will be delayed.
“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 offers a pioneering IoT solution that will complement our comprehensive telecommunication services. This agreement strongly supports our commitment to innovate by enhancing infrastructure and using new technologies that increase our network coverage and capabilities.”
In Barcelona, you really can buy happiness. (It's called Iberico, a delicious Spanish ham.) But you can't buy unlicensed spectrum, and yet it's going to be the hottest thing at Mobile World Congress next week.
With unlicensed spectrum, LPWAN companies can roll out networks more quickly and less expensively, tap into mass-produced chips for devices and go international more easily
French IoT network company Sigfox plans to expand to 10 U.S. cities in the first quarter of 2016 alone. Here's how they plan to get it done.
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.
French startup HidnSeek is launching a GPS tracker using the SigFox IoT network on Kickstarter. The small tracker is priced at €109 on the crowdfunding website(€149 full price when publicly availabl...
Low power wide area networks for the Internet of Things have been attracting new entrants and investors at a heady pace with unannounced offerings still in the pipeline for 2016 trying to enable new IoT apps by undercutting costs and battery life for cellular and WiFi.
Sigfox is still on track to cover 10 U.S. cities by the end of the year
