Sigfox Unveils Private Area Network Service

At its annual conference, Sigfox Connect, Sigfox announced the launch of its new Private Area Network (PAN) offer. The new PAN reportedly aims to be deployed in more than 65 countries where Sigfox operates its global network and will first be tested in France during Q1 2020.

By the end of 2019, Sigfox said it will have more than 15 million registered objects worldwide, and more than 1,500 customers across a broad range of industries. In 2020, Sigfox expects to complete its WAN coverage thanks to its partnership with Eutelsat which will be launching a constellation of nanosatellites.

“Sigfox's PAN offer will benefit from the existing ecosystem around the Sigfox WAN. The possibility of using all the components on the market, combined with the use of extremely low transmission power to support objects without the need for batteries, gives Sigfox's PAN offer huge potential,” said Ludovic Le Moan, CEO and co-founder, Sigfox. “Smart Home or Smart City solution providers will be among the first to benefit from this new offer.”

Sigfox said it plans to enable its operators in more than 65 countries to market the PAN offering to their customers. Sigfox PAN customers will be able to subscribe to an additional ‘WAN extension’ offering should they wish to benefit from redundancy and flexibility in the event of devices needing to communicate outside the local network.
