Sigfox falls into the category of Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN). This means that devices connected to Sigfox work in long range and usually consume little power (such as smart meters, smartwatches, sensors etc.). Thanks to various technologies that Sigfox employs, the signal is able to reach these low power devices even underground and over large areas. What’s more, the Sigfox IoT network is spreading all over the world so quickly it has reached more than 5 million square kilometres in 60+ countries in 9 years since its release.
Sigfox’s aim is to create a planetary network where every object is connected and can share its data anywhere in the world. The biggest innovation, however, is the fact that devices connected to Sigfox may work without batteries, which results in low or no maintenance costs at all.
The network significantly reduces the devices’ energy consumption which makes it suited especially for IoT deployments. Such simple and low-cost network is revolutionizing the whole IoT landscape resulting in more and more companies releasing Sigfox IoT platforms to dominate the market. With a lot of market opportunities to seize with Sigfox IoT network, the global leaders and Sigfox platform vendors will emerge only with the most effective solutions utilizing use cases from the most fundamental ones to the most innovative ones.
This white paper presents how a Sigfox IoT network utilized by AVSystem’s Coiote IoT Application Enablement platform can deliver a solution that enables you to expand a simple asset monitoring solution to conquer different market verticals.
