April 3 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
The Silicon Halton IoT Peer2Peer is focused on helping members collaborate, share, and learn how IoT is changing industry, and how they can benefit in taking their solutions / products to market. Check out our past events.
This month’s discussion topic: Sigfox Low-Power, Wide-Area Network Application
The promise of Industry 4.0 is upon us and 5G seems to open new interesting opportunities. But many IoT applications don’t need require some of the high-end features inherent in next generation wireless connectivity. Low-Power, Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) are optimized to reduce power consumption in such a way that devices can operate on a single battery for years. Use cases that require low data feeds, sensors that comunícate state-of-change in remote location monitoring or emerging smart-city installations can benefit immensely from these alternative networks. Sigfox’s proprietary and unlicensed technology is one of the most widely deployed LPWANs today. They offer affordable and superior performance connectivity that supports use cases requiring low power devices distributed over large geographic areas.
