Developers vie to create the communications standard of choice for the IoT

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

Thomas Nicholls: “Companies care about service, cheap connectivity, longer battery life and knowing their device can communicate"

A closer look at SigFox: Supercharging the smart city and beyond

A closer look at SigFox: Supercharging the smart city and beyond | SIGFOX | Scoop.it
The 12 byte message tech that could be revolutionary
SIGFOX's insight:

Going from 100 bit/s to 50 kbit/s doesn’t mean that you’ll have a shorter transmission time and be able to process more and longer messages. But it shortens the range by a factor of 10 and thus requires multiplying the number of antennas by at least 100 in order to match the SIGFOX network’s coverage. SIGFOX made careful choices in order to offer a resilient and global value proposition to its customers, who already are using the network in many countries, while Actility has yet to report that they have an official coverage anywhere with a true service-level agreement.

BTW, the SIGFOX network is bi-directional.
