Silicon Labs And SIGFOX Collaborate To Unleash The Potential Of The Internet Of Things

Stocks in this article: SLAB

Silicon Labs (NASDAQ:SLAB), a leader in high-performance, analog-intensive, mixed-signal ICs, and SIGFOX, the first operator of a cellular network fully dedicated to machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) communications, today announced a first-of-a-kind collaboration for the rapidly emerging IoT market.

The combination of Silicon Labs’ EZRadioPRO® wireless transceivers and SIGFOX’s unique Ultra-Narrowband (UNB) technology enables long-range wireless Internet connectivity solutions for a wide array of devices such as smart meters, patient monitors, security devices, street lights and environmental sensors. EZRadioPRO transceivers offer industry-leading wireless performance, extended range and ultra-low power consumption for wireless networking applications operating in the sub-GHz band.

The SIGFOX Network provides a unique and cost-effective solution for IoT and M2M services by employing a low-throughput RF communication technology that operates over an unlicensed wireless spectrum. The result is an extremely robust, power-efficient and scalable network that can communicate with millions of battery-operated devices in coverage areas of many square kilometers. Already deployed in tens of thousands of connected objects, the SIGFOX wireless networking solution enables Internet connectivity for devices that would have been otherwise difficult or impractical to reach until now.

“The collaboration between Silicon Labs and SIGFOX provides a solid wireless platform for M2M communication and cloud connectivity,” said Diwakar Vishakhadatta, vice president and general manager of Silicon Labs’ Embedded Systems business. “The integration of SIGFOX’s breakthrough UNB technology further strengthens Silicon Labs’ position as a leading supplier of mixed-signal solutions for smart energy, connected home, and other monitoring and control applications for the Internet of Things.”

“SIGFOX is working closely with enabling technology providers to deliver on the promise of the Internet of Things, and we are pleased to collaborate with Silicon Labs on this groundbreaking IoT solution,” said Ludovic Le Moan, SIGFOX Chief Executive Officer. “The global rollout of our unique network relies on the availability of world-class wireless ICs. We selected EZRadioPRO due to its industry-leading RF performance, low-power operation and unique ability to incorporate our UNB technology.”
