LPWAN (Low-Power Wide-Area Network) technology unleashes the full potential of the internet of everything with disruptive long range, low bandwidth, low power network. Sigfox is the most mature LPWAN and the first global cellular network fully dedicated to connected objects.

Sigfox has designed its technology and network to meet the requirements of mass IoT applications; long device battery life-cycle, low device cost, low connectivity fee, high network capacity, and long range.
