The Sigfox network will be deployed and operated by four strategic partners:

We are delighted to welcome these new operators into the global IoT ecosystem. Thanks to them, and all the others before them, we now hold a unique position in the European IoT market. It means that we touch our goal of creating a worldwide network able to support business both locally and globally.” said Emma Park, Vice President Europe at Sigfox.

These local operators will play a key role in the development of the IoT industry in their market, by expanding the network infrastructure to provide national coverage in their country and accelerating adoption though they work with start-ups and students.

“Sigfox believes that the future for the IoT lies in “mass IoT”, where billions of everyday objects are connected to the Internet. Its reliable, global network provides energy-efficient and cost-effective connectivity, thus allowing companies to generate additional revenues, by not only improving their performance but also creating new business models.” added Nicolas Andrieu, Vice President Middle East & Africa at Sigfox.
