Time for a Turning Point in the Internet of Things: Sigfox Announces Ground Breaking News to Hit the Market at Sigfox World IoT Expo
Sigfox will be kicking off its very first Sigfox World IoT Expo, on 25th – 26th September 2017, in Prague. During this inaugural flagship event, Sigfox will launch its family of brand-new services, designed to open a new space in the history of the Internet of Things (IoT). The event will gather all Sigfox Operators coming from around the world as well as over 400 business partners and 1,000 professionals who are contributing to the IoT revolution.
“The Sigfox World IoT Expo represents an incredible milestone in our journey, and is set to become a landmark in the IoT landscape. We have been building this momentum since our creation, in 2011, enabling industrial applications and delivering millions of messages every day”
— Ludovic Le Moan, CEO of Sigfox.
In just six years Sigfox has created the Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) connectivity that has fuelled the take-off of the IoT. Thanks to its technology, Sigfox can pick-up very small signals sent by IoT devices from around the world – using the lowest amount of energy - opening up new business models and solutions that weren’t previously possible due to battery and cost constraints.
The agenda explores how the Sigfox IoT solution is now being used worldwide to transform businesses, create new solutions and change the world for the better. “Our value proposition is unique, and that’s what we will demonstrate in Prague, through successful customer stories around the world.” said Ludovic Le Moan, who will give the event opening keynote.
Speakers on the mass IoT revolution include Industrial groups, Global operators, Ecosystem partners, the IFC World Bank Group and the Sigfox Foundation.
