Paessler and Sigfox Announce Partnership to Accelerate IoT Adoption

Paessler, a network monitoring company, and Sigfox, provider of connectivity for the IoT, has unveiled a partnership to help customers more effectively monitor and manage critical IT infrastructure. As part of the partnership, Paessler delivered its PRTG Network Monitor for IoT solutions that will monitor and visualize the functionality and measurement data from Sigfox-enabled IT infrastructure sensors, as well as from other objects, devices and machines that are equipped with or have adaptive Sigfox connectivity.

The company’s network ecosystem delivers the technology and protocols as well as the entire wireless network required for objects to share their information from anywhere in the world through inexpensive sensor connectivity that requires very little silicon and utilizes very little battery power – or alternatively no batteries at all – while harnessing low levels of energy generated by solar and wind power, as well as electromagnetic waves. Expected to be available in 60 countries by the end of 2018, the network reflects Sigfox’s vision to ‘make things come alive.’

“Our network solves the issues of cost, energy consumption and complexity that serve as barriers to the widespread adoption of the internet of things,” said Vincent Sabot, CEO, Sigfox Germany. “Our customers can virtually eliminate the overhead associated with connectivity, including the costs of the smart sensors and objects themselves. And with Paessler, our customers gain a single dashboard from which to monitor the connected devices and sensors that comprise their internet of things.”

Relied on by more than 200,000 system administrators, PRTG generates alerts or notifications whenever any pre-determined performance thresholds of the user’s choosing are met - ensuring that IT is always the first to know when a problem arises. This includes SMS and email messages, as well as the ability to automatically launch applications that provide a fix.

“Sigfox is enabling organizations across many industries, including those associated with supply chains, smart cities, manufacturing and automation of all kinds, to realize the promise of the internet of things,” said Christian Zeh, senior manager, new technologies and markets, Paessler. “As a result, the very notion of the network’s edge has become fluid, while simultaneously making it more important than ever for sysadmins and IT to know what is happening at all times.”
