Intro to the SIGFOX technology, with a hands-on workshop using Arduino boards.
SIGFOX is an operated telecommunication network, dedicated to the IoT.
Using a compatible radio transceiver (TI, Atmel, ...) you can send small messages (few bytes) in covered countries (currently France, UK, Spain, Netherlands + US, Denmark, Belgium, Portugal currently rolling out).
There is no gateway (smartphone or whatever) needed, as the messages are picked up by the network's base stations, up to 50km away.
The technology has been developped with energy efficiency as its main focus. It allows battery-operated device to operate for years.
