The new PAN aims to be deployed in more than 65 countries where Sigfox operates its global network. Nine years ago, Sigfox started to deliver its vision of a 0G network, a low-cost and low-consumption network dedicated to small messages. By installing thousands of antennas in most of the world's major cities, Sigfox has built the foundations of a very high-capacity, seamless, one-way network that allows objects to communicate independently and securely.
Since then, Sigfox has expanded its offer by providing a two-way service, followed by innovative localization services designed to suit all market applications. Its WAN (Wide Area Network) offer is a global network that perfectly meets the challenges of traceability, a requirement of considerable significance for most industries, particularly in logistics and supply chain segments.
By the end of 2019, Sigfox will have more than 15 million registered objects worldwide, and more than 1,500 customers already benefit from this connectivity across a broad range of industries.
In 2020, Sigfox will complete its WAN coverage thanks to its partnership with Eutelsat which will be launching a constellation of nanosatellites. This satellite constellation will deliver connectivity across the entire globe, bolstering coverage already provided by Sigfox’s network that delivers indoor coverage and high capacity in high-density areas. Customers who prefer an investment in CAPEX rather than OPEX will be able to subscribe via Sigfox France to the new PAN offer. PAN customers can look forward to the same quality and support levels as WAN customers.
