About the speakers

About the company: Sigfox is a French global network operator founded in 2009 that builds wireless networks to connect low-power objects such as electricity meters and smartwatches, which need to be continuously on and emitting small amounts of data.

This is the challenge that Sigfox addresses by deploying a low-bandwidth dedicated network, already present in 45 countries.
