Waiting for a tidal wave in low power wireless wide area networks - M2M Now

Waiting for a tidal wave in low power wireless wide area networks - M2M Now | SIGFOX | Scoop.it
Waiting for a tidal wave in low power wireless wide area networks - M2M Now – Global machine to machine news and expert opinions on the M2M industry
SIGFOX's insight:

The obvious lack of well suited connectivity solutions for the Internet of Things and M2M is sparking innovation, which is of course what the market needs to realize the expected potential of the Internet of Things and M2M.


This article is very interesting, thanks Steve Rogerson for writing it. Although the article does a good job of introducing some of the interesting actors within this space, it does not mention all the key factors that will determine whether the different solutions will succeed or not. That is of course also a subject that requires a bit more writing than a single article.


Some of the key areas that differentiate SIGFOX from other actors are:

  • Focus on low throughput (one technology cannot be optimal for low as well as for high data rates)
  • One single logical network (global M2M and IoT marketplace instead of a fragmented space making volume more or less impossible)
  • A simple and scalable network technology and infrastructure (whereby operational costs are low resulting in cost effective subscriptions for customers)
  • Low modem costs (SIGFOX is compatible with existing communication modules whereby it can easily be integrated along side other connectivity options and thus avoid lock-in and drive costs down due to modem volume)
  • End-to-end connectivity (besides the cellular connectivity, SIGFOX provides an intelligent backhaul allowing an easy integration all the way to the customer IT systems through standards based Web Services API and web tools)
There's of course more information in our whitepaper
This space will indeed be interesting and there is room for lots of innovation. Get ready for the tidal wave!

The largest French school of design discovers SIGFOX #1

Tranqu'île

SIGFOX's insight:

SIGFOX has had the pleasure to do an experiment with the French school of design based in Nantes, France. The READiDesignLab, a part of the Nantes school of design, was moving into a new neighbourhood of Nantes, so why not use that opportunity to see how the students would imagine the use of SIGFOX in a way to improve their daily lives in the new area.

We decided to do the project in only one week: on the first day SIGFOX presented what the Internet of Things was and what you can do with a solution such as SIGFOX, and on Friday the same week, the students had to deliver a video showing their suggestions for how SIGFOX could improve their lives in the new neighbourhood.

During the following two weeks we'll be posting the videos and we, SIGFOX and the students of course, would be delighted to get your feedback!

To start off, we'll show you the video from the following students: Mona Kleven Lauritzen, Brenda Penhouet, Sarah Lepage.


Please let them know what you think about the their idea!
