  12. 12. Technology concepts
  13. 13. Complex ? You send one AT command to your module You receive the answer on your server 14
  14. 14. CONFIDENTIAL 15 HIGH ENERGY EFFICIENCY to offer maximum autonomy to remote objects Designed to maximize energy efficiency No Pairing 15 to 45 mA during a few seconds (25mW; 14dB) depending on the chip and the size of the payload Idle consumption: negligible Idle state Communication state 6 nA 30 mA Current Time ~6 sec 99.x% of the time ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓
  15. 15. CONFIDENTIAL 16 1 % duty cycle for Objects Up to 6 messages/hour UPLINK 12-Byte payload - Sensor data - Event status - GPS fix - Application data DOWNLINK 8-Byte payload - Action / actuator trigger - Device management - Application parameter setting 10 % duty cycle for Base Stations 4 guaranteed downlink msg/day SIGFOX CLOUD SMALL MESSAGES to answer the cost & autonomy constraints of remote objects
  16. 16. ETSI Regulation / ISM bands Free ISM bands = Sharing rules. 1% emission each hour rule. 1% of 1 hour = 3600 sec / 100 = 36 secs of emission 1 message sigfox = 6 seconds So we can send 36/6 = 6 messages per hour (12 bytes)
  17. 17. Long range Ideal cases • +200 kms( record at 1282) Reality • City : 2-10 km • Rural : up to 100km. 18
  18. 18. CONFIDENTIAL 20 HIGH NETWORK CAPACITY ability to scale to the billions of objects to come UNB Frequency & Time diversity Spatial diversity + + = Massive capacity & High Quality of Service
  19. 19. CONFIDENTIAL 21 Anti-jamming capabilities due to UNB intrinsic ruggedness coupled with spatial diversity of the base stations (+20dB) HIGH RESILIENCE TO INTERFERERS robust to operate in the public ism band For the same technical reasons as above, UNB is extremely robust in an environment with other spread spectrum signals. However, Spread spectrum networks are affected by UNB signals. Ultra Narrow Band is therefore the best choice to operate in the public ISM band 8 dB needed for the signal to be received Jamming signal ✓ ✓ Interference impact
  20. 20. CONFIDENTIAL ENCRYPTION OPTIONS : depends on the use case ! 22 1. No encryption at all • Saves on BOM and power consumption of the device 2. Sigfox encryption • Requires a Sigfox validated Secure Element (multiple vendors) • Sigfox will present a decrypted payload to user on the backend interfaces (App, API, Callback) 3. End to end encryption (by the customer) • Full implementation by the customer (device and application) • Sigfox will transport an encrypted payload, • Possible to reuse a Sigfox validated Secure Element, but not compulsory
  21. 21. SIGFOX SERVICE CONFIDENTIAL 23 Customer ITBig Data analytics platforms Object data Transmitted through its radio protocol on the public spectrum Global network SIGFOX cloud
  22. 22. CONFIDENTIAL OUTBOUND INTERFACES 24 1. Web application (aka the Sigfox backend) • Technical interface : devices, device types, groups, users management… • Raw payload view : No analytics, BI or business application. 2. HTTP REST API • Same features as the backend, but scriptable, • Customer applications pulls messages from the backend, 3. Callbacks • Push messages to a specified URL / email • Multiple callbacks are possible.
  23. 23. CONFIDENTIAL 25 PLATFORM INTEGRATION
  24. 24. Additional: Geolocation • New geolocation service • Works with all devices on our network, • KM accuracy , depends on density. • Perfect for most of industrial tracking

  39. 39. So.. Which one to choose ? It all depends on the use case! Most important: • SDK? • Other connectivity? • Support? • Price? • Power Consumption? • Availability? • Size?
  40. 40. Antenna : THE most important part PLAN IT WHILE DOING YOUR PCB • Balance between design & perf • Depends on the use case • Target best radio performance • Hire an antenna guy if you need so • https://build.sigfox.com/antennas 42
  41. 41. Antennas • Lots of providers on shelves (Molex, Pulse, Linx..) • Can do your own • All depends what you have & need! • Sens’it antenna: Open source design
  42. 42. Antennas ( small feedback) Antenna Price Size Integration Perf Indoor? External YES Internal wire YES Ceramics NO PCB printed YES
  43. 43. Batteries • Sigfox predictability: no signaling, 1 message = X uAh • Different types of batteries = Different Use Cases Rechargeable device? Size constraints? Radio Zone has little impact on battery life • Peak current while transmitting 20 to 50 mA in Europe, 130 to 250 mA in US Coin cell: short lifetime Can work with extra (super)-capacitor circuit Prefer multiple smaller batteries over a big one
  44. 44. Batteries life example • 10 msg (UL) + 1 DL / day • 6 bytes • Zone 4 Wisol module • Idle + Sensor = 1 uA Lithium , 2 Ah = 1140 days Alkaline, 2 Ah = 3400 days • 50 msg (UL) + 1 DL / day • 0 bytes • Zone 4 Wisol module • Idle + Sensor = 1 uA Lithium , 2 Ah = 618 days Alkaline, 2 Ah = 1100 days Sigfox trackerSensor
  45. 45. Casing Completely depends on use case • IPXX ? • Size ? but few advices: • Plastic is always better for radio than metal • Consider shelf casing • Don’t aim for the smallest, aim the use case !
  46. 46. Radio zones • RZ1: Europe, MEA 868 MHz, +14 dBm • RZ2: North America, Brazil 902 MHz, +22 dBm • RZ3: Japan, Korea 920 MHz, +14 dBm, LBT • RZ4: South America 920 MHz, +22 dBm
  47. 47. Multi radio zones devices • Hardware Single Zone Different Hardware (modules) Different module version but same pinout/PCB • Hardware Multi Zones Same Hardware, stay in the same zone Set zone during production/firmware flashing • Software Multi Zones: Monarch service Same hardware, moving interzone For specific worlwide asset tracking use cases Require specific Sigfox firmware on module (more information coming soon)
  48. 48. Testing tools • SDR Dongle • End to End testing (not for prod) • RSA (Radio Signal Analyzer) • Included in SDR dongle • Test radio compliance • Litepoint analyzer IQxel-M • RF testing (WiFi, BLE, Sigfox) • Manufacturing tests • Pre-certification
  49. 49. Transceiver Compatibility •Texas Instruments: CC1120, CC1125, CC1310, CC1350 •Silicon Labs : EFR32, EZR32 •Semtech : SX1272, SX1276 51 Need a Sigfox Verified to integrate the Sigfox Stack
  50. 50. Sigfox presentation Credentials management 52 ID = unique identifier for radio solutions provided by Sigfox PAC = One-time Security code for ownership management To register a device on the Sigfox backend, you need both codes. • These Credentials are « preloaded » within the modules. • You need to « read » them from the device on the production line to understand which device in which box. (AT command) • Print your own Serial N° on the box : no ID/PAC • PAC code changes when used : owner the device can get the new PAC on the Sigfox backend
  51. 51. Commercial deployments
  52. 52. Certification process
  53. 53. • Sigfox VerifiedTM Integration of the Sigfox stack For modules & big volumes Conducted tests 7.5k€ Sigfox ReadyTM For all End Products Radio tests Approx 2.5k€ 55 Certification for Modules & Devices Certified product = Sigfox VerifiedTM + Sigfox ReadyTM
  54. 54. Sigfox presentation Sigfox ReadyTM process 56 2 steps process : 1) Do the testing with accredited test houses (<1k€) 2) Once done, Certification Filling with Sigfox automatically trough build.sigfox.com ( 1.5k€ and 1k) • No need for Certification for POCs & prototypes ( <200) • Can be done very fast.
  55. 55. Sigfox Ready : tests performed Maximum ERP and radiated power diagram The device maximum ERP is measured to assess product transmitter radiated performances. U0 (indoor) U1 (outdoor) U2 (Ourdoor high) U3 16dBm> EIRP >12dBm 12dBm>EIRP≥7dBm 7dBm>EIRP≥2dBm Below 2dBm RC1
  56. 56. Price and coverage
