Sigfox Releases Radio Protocol Specs for Connected Objects
Sigfox, an Internet of Things (IoT) service provider, has publicly released the specifications of its radio protocol for connected objects. The release of these specifications will allow open-source implementations and greater opportunities for developers and manufacturers of connected objects. Once the tests are completed, manufacturers can then register objects on the Sigfox network in order to benefit from it.
Sigfox expects an increase in the number of objects connected to its network as new players in the IoT space take advantage of this opportunity, with global support from Sigfox. This will apply to connected objects, rather than Sigfox's base stations and infrastructure, as those are protected by patents. Previously, the specification of objects was shared under a non-disclosure agreement, while Sigfox sought to control the number of objects applying to connect to its network.
"The opening of the specification has always been part of Sigfox's ambition and we're excited for the thousands of new use cases that will emerge," said Christophe Fourtet, a co-founder of Sigfox, in a prepared statement. "Our partners all over the world are looking forward to being part of this development."
