PRLog (Press Release) - Dec. 9, 2013 - Telit Wireless Solutions (http://www.telit.com/)andFrance-based SIGFOX (http://www.sigfox.com/en/)have jointly announced their collaboration to increase penetration of the Internet of Things (IoT). With this tie-up, the new Telit module will extend support for the ultra-narrow band (UNB), licence-free technology of the SIGFOX network. SIGFOX’s patented Ultra Narrow Band (UNB) technology, behind the company’s network makes it possible to operate on unlicensed frequency bands available worldwide and with fewer antennas.
The long-range data transmission drastically reduces power-consumption and therefore carbon footprint and maintenance costs. Telit engages the collaboration by working with SIGFOX to develop and quickly bring to marketM2M modules (http://www.m2mair.com/index.html)certified under the SIGFOX UNB network.
Ludovic Le Moan, Chief Executive Officer, SIGFOX (http://www.sigfox.com/en/article/43-meet-sigfox-at-the-m2...), said, SIGFOX is glad to announce the collaboration with Telit, which will speed up the IoT market growth. This new Telit module combines existing Telit assets with SIGFOX connectivity to provide customers with a cost-effective and low energy consuming long range end-to-end connectivity solution. This new module will benefit from our network rollout, as it will become simple and optimal to connect Telit powered objects.
We are excited to contribute a product to this solution. With so many devices unable to connect for cost and power reasons, SIGFOX is a real breakthrough for M2M. For the SIGFOX product, we are leveraging our extensive experience in power-efficient modules for scalable networks and for battery-operated devices that can communicate in coverage areas of many square kilometers," saidFelix Marchal, Chief Product Officer, Telit Wireless Solutions.
