Sigfox, a provider of Internet of Things (IoT) services, revealed the launch of its Private Area Network (PAN) offer. The new PAN aims to be deployed in more than 65 countries where Sigfox operates its global network and will first be tested in France during First Quarter (Q1) 2020.
Sigfox currently operates a Wide Area Network (WAN). By the end of 2019, Sigfox will have more than 15 million registered objects worldwide, and more than 1,500 customers. In 2020, Sigfox will complete its WAN coverage thanks to its partnership with Eutelsat, which will be launching a constellation of nanosatellites.
“Sigfox’s PAN offer will benefit from the existing ecosystem around the Sigfox WAN. The possibility of using all the components on the market, combined with the use of extremely low transmission power to support objects without the need for batteries, gives Sigfox’s PAN offer huge potential.” comments Ludovic Le Moan, CEO and co-founder of Sigfox, “Smart Home or Smart City solution providers will be among the first to benefit from this new offer.”
