Silicon Laboratories, Inc., a semiconductor company, has collaborated with SIGFOX, an operator of a cellular network fully dedicated to machine-to-machine and Internet of Things communications.
The combination of Silicon Labs' EZRadioPRO wireless transceivers and SIGFOX's unique Ultra-Narrowband, or UNB, technology enables long-range wireless Internet connectivity solutions for a wide array of devices such as smart meters, patient monitors, security devices, street lights and environmental sensors, Silicon said.
The SIGFOX Network provides a cost-effective solution for IoT and M2M services by employing a low-throughput RF communication technology that operates over an unlicensed wireless spectrum.
"The collaboration between Silicon Labs and SIGFOX provides a solid wireless platform for M2M communication and cloud connectivity," said Diwakar Vishakhadatta, vice president and general manager of Silicon Labs' Embedded Systems business. "The integration of SIGFOX's breakthrough UNB technology further strengthens Silicon Labs' position as a leading supplier of mixed-signal solutions for smart energy, connected home, and other monitoring and control applications for the Internet of Things."
