- IoT Net Adria : seeing a great opportunity to replicate the accumulated know-how with Sigfox in other countries in their market, Croatian Sigfox Operator is extending the Sigfox coverage in eastern Europe.
- IoT Tunisie : with an expanding manufacturing sector, demand for IoT solutions is high in Tunisia . Together with Sigfox, IoT Tunisie can meet that demand and promote hi-tech growth.
- Platt Nera : the collaboration is set to connect hundreds of thousands of objects as Thailand invests in smart cities, intelligent energy, and other transformational digital projects.
Rodolphe Baronnet-Frugès, executive vice president of operators at Sigfox , said, “We’re excited to work with all of our new partners, this move marks yet another key milestone towards Sigfox’s vision of a global IoT network. We are looking forward to collaborating with our new Sigfox operators to help their local ecosystems to seamlessly scale IoT solutions wherever the Sigfox network is present in the world. Together, we’re building a future that will be better to live in.”
Sigfox operators are not only contributing to accelerate IoT development in their local markets, they are also committing to deploy and operate the network infrastructure and offer national coverage in their countries. Up to this day, almost 100 million euros have been invested by Sigfox operators to offer a unique access to the Sigfox IoT services, with the exact same quality of service.
This unique global offer is enriched with Sigfox new service Monarch , now allowing IoT devices to recognize and automatically adapt to every local communications standard in the world without roaming. By enabling ‘globe trotter’ assets that can seamlessly adapt as they move across borders, Monarch represents a game-changer for logistics, freight, and consumer goods industries.
