At Connect, its big annual event dedicated to IoT, Sigfox launched Sigfox Access Station Micro, the company’s most versatile and cost-efficient gateway to date.
Compact, sleek and weather-resistant design, Access Station Micro provides an adaptable and easy-to-install solution to significantly enhance Sigfox IoT service coverage to billions of devices.
With its compact form factor, integrated antenna, and Power-over-Ethernet capabilities, Sigfox Access Station Micro can be easily installed within minutes and connect to Sigfox’s Cloud via existing Internet access or cellular networks.
Following its ambition to cover the overall planet for limitless opportunities and applications, Sigfox Access Station Micro will be available for online purchase.
Laetitia Jay, Chief Marketing Officer at Sigfox, says:
“Access Station Micro enables customers across many industries to quickly expand the reach of Sigfox’s network at an affordable price. This immediate coverage extension allows businesses to optimize the RoI and performance of their IoT solutions.”
Access Station Micro is developed specifically to address new challenges related to network expansion by optimizing RoI on IoT application deployment in areas such as deep indoor or outdoor remote customer locations.
A single gateway could cover large rural areas, hundreds of square kilometers without efforts. Its extremely low energy consumption enables remote IoT applications where no power source is available with a single small solar panel and a low bandwidth satellite backhaul.
