SIGFOX SA Key Developments
SIGFOX and Texas Instruments Inc. Collaborate to Deliver Cost-Effective, Long-Range, Low-Power Internet of Things Connectivity
Apr 28 15
SIGFOX and Texas Instruments announced the two companies are working together to increase IoT deployments using the Sub-1 GHz spectrum. Customers can use the SIGFOX network with TI's Sub-1 GHz RF transceivers to deploy wireless sensor nodes that are lower cost and lower power than 3G/cellular connected nodes, while providing long-range connectivity to the IoT. Targeting a wide variety of end-user applications, including environmental sensors, smart meters, agriculture and livestock sensors, asset tracking and smart cities, the SIGFOX and TI collaboration maximizes the many benefits of narrowband radio technology and reduces barriers to entry for manufacturers wanting to connect their products to the cloud. Using the SIGFOX infrastructure reduces the cost and effort to get sensor data to the cloud and TI's Sub-1 GHz technology provides years of battery life for less maintenance and up to 100 km range.
TALIS Group Chooses SIGFOX Internet of Things Network for Smart-City Fire Hydrant Monitoring Solution
Apr 16 15
TALIS and SIGFOX announced that TALIS will use the SIGFOX network in its new smart-city fire hydrant monitoring solution. Called COPERNIC, the solution allows water utility officials and companies to monitor the status of thousands of fire hydrants 24/7 to assure proper functioning and protect against water theft. It provides real-time alerts when the fire hydrants are being used, along with estimates of volume drawn, data on hydrant functioning and other information that supports total network efficiency. COPERNIC allows real-time monitoring of fire hydrants by time-stamping all data related to hydrant functioning. An electronic module installed on the hydrant sends SMS or email alerts via the SIGFOX network when the hydrant is being opened, closed, tampered with or is not functioning properly. In addition, all data are instantly available on a web portal, and a mobile app for smartphones and tablets is available to read data and receive alerts in the field. COPERNIC was developed by the TALIS Group unit, BAYARD in Meyzieu, France, which specializes in fire and pipe-protection systems, gates, water treatment and butterfly valves, fluid control, joint connectors for pipelines and pipe connections. BAYARD has applied for a patent for COPERNIC. IGFOX’s cellular, ultra-narrowband (UNB) network has been exclusively designed for small messages that will meet the needs of the vast majority of objects connected to the IoT. By providing economical, energy-efficient two-way transmission of data, SIGFOX is lowering barriers to wide implementation of IoT and M2M solutions, and greatly extending the battery and service life of connected devices. COPERNIC runs on lithium batteries that have an estimated lifetime of 10 years.
Sigfox to Launch M2M Network in Germany
Mar 10 15
Sigfox has developed a mobile network designed for machine-to-machine communications and announced its launch in Germany for this year. The company uses a freely available frequency spectrum to transmit signals from device to device but needs radio stations every 40 kilometers.
