Europe drives world’s first dedicated narrowband cellular network for the Internet of Things

M2M module supplier Telit Wireless Solutions is working with French network operator SIGFOX on the first cellular network fully dedicated to machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) communications usnig narrowband links.

The European network is based on a completely new cellular approach. SIGFOXs patented Ultra Narrow Band (UNB) technology 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 is working with SIGFOX to develop and quickly bring to market M2M modules certified under the SIGFOX UNB network.
With existing connectivity solutions built primarily to address needs of high bandwidth devices, a large number of business cases and potential candidate users of the IoT find major limitations in pricing, energy consumption and complexity of implementation associated with traditional cellular systems. The SIGFOX network and accompanying Telit OEM module solve this by providing an out-of-the-box subscription-based low-throughput connectivity solution at lower prices, with lower energy consumption and leveraging very simple integration. The approach enables a larger global marketplace of connected solutions. By using the eco-friendly, robust, secure, and easy to use network, customers reduce their carbon footprint while benefiting from low prices over the entire connection chain.
