Radio Specs Go Public For Connected Objects

Getting into the spirit of celebration for the eighth World Radio Day and under the patronage of UNESCO, Sigfox has publicly released specifications of its radio protocol for connected objects. With the specs now in the public domain, anyone can create their own Sigfox object.

 

The release of these specifications will allow open source implementations, and more opportunities for developers and manufacturers of connected objects. As soon as all the tests are done, the manufacturer will only have to register its object on the Sigfox network to benefit from it. The company expects a boom in the number of objects connected to its network as new players in the IoT space take advantage of this opportunity. The Sigfox ecosystem will expand further, as they democratize the technology beyond device makers.

This move will apply only to connected objects, rather than Sigfox’s base stations and infrastructure, as those are protected by patents. Until now, the specification of objects was shared under NDA upon request, while Sigfox wanted to control the number of objects applying to connect to its network.
