Why LAN for Sigfox Operators?
Unabiz, a renowned IoT network provider, and Sentiens, a leading multi-protocol core network system developer, may appear as competitors in the Sigfox ecosystem. However, their collaboration actually creates a powerful synergy that brings significant benefits to Sigfox Operators deploying WANs connected to the Unabiz backend. Let’s delve into some concrete illustrations of how this collaboration enhances the capabilities of Sigfox Operators:
- Unified Network Management: Sigfox Operators can leverage Unabiz’s expertise in deploying and managing Sigfox-enabled devices, while harnessing Sentiens’ multi-protocol core network system for overall network management. This integration enables seamless connectivity across different protocols and ensures efficient management of IoT devices, regardless of the underlying connectivity technology. It creates a clear differentiator from the competition.
- Enhanced Connectivity Coverage: Unabiz’s extensive network coverage, combined with Sentiens’ multi-protocol support, empowers Sigfox Operators to provide comprehensive IoT connectivity. By leveraging both solutions, Sigfox Operators can extend their network reach, ensuring seamless connectivity in diverse geographic areas and meeting the needs of a wide range of IoT use cases. The native seamless handover between the WAN and the LAN is the keystone of this complementarity.
- Flexible Deployment Options: Unabiz and Sentiens offer complementary deployment options, allowing Sigfox Operators to tailor their network infrastructure to specific requirements. While Unabiz provides the WAN connectivity to the Unabiz cloud-based backend, Sentiens’ multi-protocol core network system can be deployed in various ways: as a cloud-based SaaS solution, an on-premises system, or even at the network edge. This flexibility ensures scalability, adaptability, and optimal resource allocation as the network expands.
- Future-Proofing and Innovation: By working together, Unabiz and Sentiens contribute to the continuous development of the Sigfox ecosystem. Unabiz’s focus on enhancing Sigfox technology and expanding network coverage aligns with Sentiens’ commitment to supporting multiple connectivity protocols. This collaborative approach ensures that Sigfox Operators can embrace emerging technologies, accommodate evolving industry standards, and stay ahead of the curve in the dynamic IoT landscape.
In conclusion, the synergy between Unabiz and Sentiens brings immense value to Sigfox Operators. By leveraging Unabiz’s network expertise and Sentiens’ multi-protocol core network system, operators can seamlessly manage their IoT network infrastructure, extend connectivity coverage, optimize network performance, and future-proof their deployments. This collaboration highlights the strength of partnerships in driving innovation and delivering comprehensive solutions for the benefit of the entire Sigfox ecosystem.
