Ubidots and Sigfox partner for super-low energy, long-distance asset tracking, and data transmission solutions
Sigfox takes you where cellular cannot–with less energy consumption and lower cost for data transmission. With a unique approach to wireless connectivity, Sigfox uses an optimized communications protocol to cleanly transmit your device’s data to Ubidots.
Ubidots is excited to join the Sigfox ecosystem as an IoT Platform Provider. Navigating the IoT ecosystem to find an affordable device-to-cloud solution for your IoT initiatives is an exhausting process. But, with the Ubidots and Sigfox partnership, developers, businesses, and System Integrators can turn to the Sigfox ecosystem, select a device that suits their application, and easily forward its sensor data to Ubidots.
Sigfox takes you where cellular cannot–instead of having to hire a cellular data plan for your devices or create your own low power network to span vast distances, Sigfox has deployed their own, managed IoT network, optimized for long-distance communication using ultra narrowband (UNB) technology. With a rich ecosystem of compatible devices, from SoC’s (System on Chips) to build your own design, and purpose-build turn-key devices like GPS trackers and Smart Energy Meters, the Sigfox device family is enabling the next wave of IoT applications through longer battery life-cycle, low device cost, and high network coverage. With your devices deployed in the field, a base-station within 1,000 meters of your device collects, cleans, and transmits data to Sigfox’s backend where it can be packaged and sent to Ubidots for storage, visualization, and computation.
Already with millions of connected devices around the world, Sigfox technology has proven itself as a cost-effective solutions across a variety of markets and industries and with Ubidots front-end visualization and application enablement, your long-range IoT solutions have become even easier.
