Sigfox Global Network key Features

The Sigfox network offers a high quality of service which is highly resistant to interference. It’s perfectly fitted for low cost IoT devices that need to run on extremely low energy consumption levels and need to send data over a very long range.

High quality of service

A device is not attached to a specific base station. Its broadcasted messages are received by any base station in the range, which is 3 on average, and there is no need for message acknowledgement. Spatial diversity coupled with time and frequency diversity of radio frame repetitions lead to high quality of service of the Sigfox network.

High resilience to interferences

High resilience to interferences

UNB intrinsic ruggedness coupled with spatial diversity of the base stations offer great anti-jamming capabilities. UNB is extremely robust in an environment with spread spectrum signals. UNB is the best choice to operate on the public ISM band.

Very long range

Very long range

Low bit rate and simple radio modulation enable a 163.3 dB budget link for long range communications.

High energy efficiency

High energy efficiency

Sigfox radio protocol cuts the radio frame size down and no synchronization with the network is required. Combining a low power emission level and short emission duration (less than one minute per day) allows maximum autonomy to devices.

High network capacity

High network capacity

The small footprint of UNB enables more simultaneous signals within the operation band, in addition Sigfox protocol cuts down the radio frames size. Those two features combined with the use of cognitive radio technology enables the Sigfox network to reach a very a high capacity.
