ThingWorx And SIGFOX Partner To Deliver Rapid, Low-Cost, End-to-End Wireless M2M And Internet Of Things Solutions

Stocks in this article: SFE

ThingWorx™ today announced its latest ThingWorx Ready™ partner, SIGFOX, the world’s first cellular network operator dedicated to Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT). SIGFOX’s focus on cost-effective device communications, when combined with ThingWorx’s rapid application enablement, make this a natural partnership to both improve the time to market and lower the connectivity cost for M2M and IoT solutions.

This partnership includes ThingWorx Ready certification of SIGFOX’s patented Ultra Narrow Band (UNB) wireless communication technology and cellular data transfer network. Both enable rapid, reliable, low-cost cellular communication for M2M and IoT solutions, including smart metering, e-health, building security and building intelligence, smart city, asset tracking, equipment and infrastructure control, and environmental and agriculture control.

“Adding ecosystem partners like ThingWorx is crucial for optimal and fast delivery of end-to-end solutions,” said Jaap Groot, Vice President of Global Sales for SIGFOX. “This partnership will clearly help to reduce the perceived complexity of the supplier marketplace and long lead time between cost and ROI, which will be crucial to achieving optimal market penetration. Our customers already benefit from huge cost savings using our unique Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) out-of-the-box solution, and are now starting to focus on greater agility, efficiency, and customer service, which clearly requires a powerful application platform like ThingWorx.”

“We are pleased to partner with SIGFOX, a true innovator in M2M and IoT device connectivity,” said Ken Forster, Managing Director of EMEA for ThingWorx. “Combined with the ThingWorx platform, we will dramatically reduce the time, cost, and risk for customers seeking to build and deploy large-scale, low-energy-consuming, end-to-end M2M and IoT solutions. This offering will be a catalyst for rapid growth in the emerging connected world.”

This partnership will be highlighted on Wednesday, Sept. 25, at the M2M Innovation World Congress in Nice, France, where ThingWorx and SIGFOX will demonstrate the power of the combined offering by building an end-to-end smart meter and intrusion detection application on the SIGFOX network and the ThingWorx application platform, onstage, and in less than 15 minutes.
