Billions of objects worldwide will be connected to the Internet; their data will be stored in the cloud and will participate in the digitalization of our environment. Having a global, simple, low-cost and low-power connectivity solution is fundamental. This is the challenge that Sigfox addresses by deploying a low-bandwidth dedicated network, already present in 45 countries. Created in 2010 the company is a recognized global pioneer and leader in a sector that is already disrupting business models and will revolutionize the whole of society. The ambition of Sigfox, embodied in the slogan “ ake Things Come Alive", is to give a voice to the physical world around us and to allow these billions of objects to play a role in economic and social development.

* Planetary network - Sigfox delivers the network and the protocols required to allow an object to share its data from anywhere in the world.

* Going beyond battery - Sigfox enables sensors to function without the need for batteries, which will remove the need for maintenance. Today, multiples sources of energy in the physical world can enable energy-harvesting, including solar, wind and electromagnetic waves. The simplicity of our technology means that we can provide the best possible user experience and lowest maintenance costs, and one day remove the need for batteries for many use cases.

* Reduce the silicon - The cost and complexity of the required silicon to connect objects need to be dramatically reduced. The simplicity in our technology enables this. Today, a SIM card module often costs up to $40, but a module on our network can cost as little as a few dollars – at this cost, you can economically connect virtually anything.

LTE-based broadband trunking communication (B-TrunC) has become the first standard from China to be accepted by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) as an international Public Protection and Disaster Relief (PPDR) broadband trunking air interface standard. It was included in the new version of the Recommendation ITU-R M.2009, which was approved at the 9th plenary conference held by the the ITU's Radio communication Bureau (ITU-R) Study Group 5 (SG5) in Geneva, Switzerland in November 2014, and was published on February 3, 2015.

Developed by the China Communications Standards Association (CCSA) and approved by China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the standard has been developed to address evolving needs driven by the emergence of new services such as video, image and high-speed data transmission. Traditional narrowband trunking can no longer provide the bandwidth to support such services.

B-TrunC supports various carrier bandwidths ranging from 1.4 MHz to 20 MHz and provides the main features of LTE. B-TrunC can support one-to-many voice calls and one-to-many video calls by leveraging the new one-to-many transmission mechanism in its radio interface. Mission critical communications is essential for fast response time to ensure the safety and order of communities, firefighting, public health, national security and economic stability. After recognizing and understanding this need, the B-TrunC standard was developed to enable mission critical communications for PPDR operations.
