What is Sigfox?
Sigfox is the world’s leading network for Internet of Things (IoT).
Sigfox offers a global LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Network), which means that the network technology offers long-range, yet low energy consumption. It is tailored as a lightweight protocol to handle small data transmissions, ideal for connecting billions of sensors and devices to the cloud.
How is data transferred to the cloud?
- The Maturix transmitters wakes up and sends data using its built-in radio antenna
- Multiple Sigfox antennas or gateways in the area receive the data
- The antennas/gateways send the data to the Sigfox Cloud
- The Sigfox Cloud sends the data to Maturix
The benefit is that you can have hundreds of devices sending data across long-ranges – and they will all be appearing in real-time in Maturix.
