Sigfox Communication Module

Sigfox Communication Module

Sigfox Communication Module

  We provide a two types of modules: a simple module with Sigfox only, able to meet the demands of dealing with complex operations from a straightforward implementation, and a composite module equipped with BLE, Wi-Fi, and GPS.

SOLUTION IMAGE

The world's smallest Sigfox Communication Module

The smallest UART communications method module for global use.
The world's smallest UART communications method module, controllable from an external MCU that Wisol, currently mass producing and supplying the global modules (RCZ1, 2, 4), made compatible for Japan (RCZ3).

Benefits

  Meter readers have to visit people's homes once a month to get the figures for providers to record their sales. Up until now communications equipment like fixed line phones or mobile terminals were used, but due to problems like communication costs or battery life they were unsuited for acquiring meter data. The new wireless communications technology LPWA sends small packets of data with minimal power, reducing battery consumption and making possible wide-area coverage. Sigfox is an implementation of LPWA that uses its characteristics to reduce communications costs. KCCS began providing the service in Japan in February 2017, working on progressively applying it to IoT devices. In this case we used Sigfox technology to achieve work efficiency by notifying consumption amounts via smart meter Sigfox communications.

LPWA = Low Power Wide Area.
Sigfox is an IoT network standard provided by the French company Sigfox. KCCS is the abbreviation of Kyocera Communication Systems Co., the provider of Sigfox services in Japan.
