POST Luxembourg, Luxembourg’s national telecommunications services operator and ICT service provider and RMS.lu, a specialist in Digital ID and Mobile Solutions plan to expand their SIGFOX IoT Network to nationwide by end of this year. Both the companies have deployed the SIGFOX global network in Luxembourg City and Ettelbrück.

The IoT network is designed to provide subscription-based services for government agencies, companies and other users including smart-city applications for water metering, parking management, asset tracking and air-quality management, as well as applications for improving health care, insurance coverage and logistics.

According to SIGFOX, its Ultra Narrow Band (UNB) technology complements existing high-bandwidth cellular systems, which are designed for the data-intensive needs of smartphones and other mobile electronics. It installs on standard cell towers or buildings and provides economical, energy-efficient, two-way transmission of small quantities of data over long distances, thus lowering barriers to wide implementation of Internet-of-Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions, and greatly extending the battery and service life of connected devices. 

Jean-Marie Spaus, director of POST Telecom S.A.
In addition to providing these essential IoT services, POST Luxembourg and RMS.lu will work with Luxembourg’s developers and businesses to grow the IoT ecosystem and create all kinds of new devices and applications. The SIGFOX network strongly complements our existing wireless broadband offer and allows us to provide efficient, low-cost connectivity for objects that are designed to send small messages on an intermittent, as-needed basis. 

Rodolphe Baronnet-Frugès, SIGFOX executive vice president of networks and operators
POST Luxembourg has the existing nationwide infrastructure to speed deployment of a dedicated-IoT network that will strategically complement its high-bandwidth services with a very reliable, low-costand low-power option that is unique because it can scale to millions of connected objects.
