SIGFOX

It has been said before: less is more. SIGFOX demonstrates that truism with our network for the Internet of Things. A very big majority of those things will send and receive only small messages, e.g. position, orientation, temperature, inventory data, movement and battery status. Our global network is dedicated to providing long-range, low-throughput, cost-effective and energy-efficient connectivity that is perfectly suited for such two-way communication. It therefore eliminates the cost and energy-use barriers to wide adoption of the IoT and greatly extends the battery and service life of connected devices.

Frailties of LoRaWAN IoT Devices

Article | March 5, 2020

Low-power wide-area networks (LPWANs) are helping drive the Internet of things (IoT) explosion. They connect millions of low-power IoT and Industrial IoT (IIoT) devices into wireless networks over a range of distances, from short to really, really long, from indoor applications to those covering large fields or even cities. But device designers using the LoRaWAN standard may be lulled into thinking that just configuring its security keys is enough to prevent their devices from being hacked. A new report says it isn’t. Four protocols give enterprises a choice in LPWAN connectivity: cellular NB-IoT, LTE-M, and Sigfox, and the non-cellular LoRaWAN standard. Among these, the open LoRaWAN overwhelmingly dominates. Omdia (formerly IHS Markit – Technology) projects a “quite high forecast” for LoRa, said Lee Ratliff, senior principal analyst, connectivity and IoT.

Why artificial intelligence will finally unlock IoT

Article | March 5, 2020

According to Gartner, there may be larger than 20 billion connected devices worldwide by the use of 2020. These days’s enterprises are already benefitting very a lot from a sturdy, connected personnel, nonetheless as Internet of Points (IoT) enabled devices switch forward, saturating {the marketplace}, is it conceivable for them to outpace their very personal benefits? In the end, while the continued surge of IoT devices is rising an onslaught of data requiring storage and retention, developments throughout the IoT worldwide are nonetheless sure by the use of how briefly and efficiently data may additionally be computed, and value extracted. Apparently, the current resurgence of artificial intelligence (AI) period may provide an antidote to the flood of data lately’s digital worldwide is coping with.

5G in IoT Starts to Crystallize in Industrial IoT Market

Article | March 5, 2020

Much of the attention on 5G technology centers on a future of smarter phones, drones and self-driving cars. But 5G’s role in next-generation industrial IoT applications bears watching as well. While 5G may be one among many evolutionary steps, it is important in the development of new industrial IoT use cases. 5G connectivity, is the fifth generation of cellular technology. It is designed to increase network speed, reduce latency, and improve flexibility of wireless services. 5G technology has a theoretical peak speed of 20 Gbps, while the peak speed of 4G is only 1 Gbps. 5G improve the performance of business applications in various context, such as factories, self-driving cars and in handheld devices for field technicians.
