Oct 20, 2017

International expert organization DEKRA has been selected by Sigfox, leading provider of connectivity for the Internet of Things, to provide testing and certification services to manufacturers of communication devices according to the “Sigfox Ready™” certification program.

Following two years of close cooperation with Sigfox, DEKRA has taken a step forward and has adopted an active role in the Sigfox Partner Network, by becoming an accredited test house for “Sigfox Ready™” certification.
Sigfox' global LPWAN (low power wide area network) connects millions of devices to the Internet and addresses some of the greatest barriers to global IoT adoption: cost, energy consumption, and global scalability. As a Sigfox test house, DEKRA can test products to receive “Sigfox Ready™” certification, ensuring the performance of connected devices while maintaining optimal quality of service on the Sigfox network through conformance with the Sigfox radio specifications.
"In just a few years, Sigfox has taken a leading position in ‘connecting things’ to the Internet, leading to a significant reduction in costs and complexity thanks to the simplicity of their technology. As part of our connectivity strategy, we will enable our network of laboratories worldwide to provide services for all the key technologies that are and will drive the Internet of Things markets", says Fernando Hardasmal, Global Director Market & Sales, DEKRA Product Testing & Certification.
