Seizing the initiative on Sigfox

Sigfox is connecting devices to the cloud across the world. It operates in unlicensed bands worldwide, with radio frequencies ranging from 862 to 928 MHz, enabling devices to send data to the cloud using very little power at very low cost. By overcoming the barriers to global IoT adoption like cost, energy consumption and global scalability, SIgfox has become an IoT network connecting billions of devices worldwide.

Avnet is helping developers jump on the Sigfox network with the Seongji single, quad mode and Monarch module solutions. They offer all the benefits that work so well on Sigfox, such as low power consumption, low data rate, wide coverage areas as well as low module costs and communication fees. In addition, the Monarch modules automatically adapt to local radio frequency standards, harnessing Sigfox for the global asset tracking and logistics markets.
