Innovation and Experience

Whether you want to measure air quality in your city, follow the route of your containers, or watch the grass grow (i.e. monitor the growth of your grain): Sigfox and Paessler ensure you have access to your monitoring data 24/7. This IoT solution is not only affordable, it is extremely easy to use.

The French company, Sigfox, is a pioneer in providing nationwide LPWAN based on Ultra Narrow Band (UNB). The combination of wide-range and extremely low power consumption allows self-sustaining sensors with a battery life of many years. The costs for the Sigfox radio module, plus connection to the Sigfox network, amount to only a few Euros. 

LPWAN sensors don’t need any infrastructure, external power supply, WLAN, or even cables. Just fix the sensor to the place or device you want to monitor, and it will send data like location (no need for GPS, even indoors), acceleration, temperature, air quality, quality of soil, humidity, etc. via the Sigfox UNB network to the Sigfox server. In the Sigfox backend, the data is made available via callback or API.

By the end of 2018, Sigfox will have established nationwide IoT networks in 60 countries. Big parts of Europe, the economic hotspots in the US, Japan, Australia and New Zealand as well as parts of Asia, Africa, and South America have already been covered. This unleashes reams of possible applications in all areas of the IoT, such as Smart City, IIoT, Smart Logistics, Smart Farming etc.

Based on PRTG’s proven technology, Paessler delivers an IoT solution that monitors sensor functionality as well as monitoring data. For this, the solution offers two methods:

1) Via Callback (http push data advanced sensor: Data is sent immediately to PRTG by push and via API)

2) PRTG requests data in predefinied intervals from Sigfox.

Using individually defined thresholds, you can set up notifications and alerts. The Paessler IoT solution offers various out-of-the-box notification methods like Email, SMS, Push, script-based action triggering or http-notifications.

Data is published using individually created dashboards, called “Maps”, or by the integrated reporting engine. All out-of-the-box, optimized for ease of use, and with numerous options for automating.

PRTG and Sigfox combined to realize your IoT projects: 

  • Your IoT scenario is realized quickly, easily, and at low cost
  • Self-sufficient sensor systems, independent of cables or WLAN
  • Data analysis, visualization, publication, and alerting out of the box with one single solution
