Sigfox opens its network with a brand-new Micro Base Station
Berlin, Germany – October 25th, 2018 – Today at Connect, its big annual event dedicated to IoT, Sigfox, the world’s leading Internet of things (IoT) service provider, launched Sigfox Access Station Micro, the company’s most versatile and cost-efficient gateway to date. Compact, sleek and weather-resistant design, Access Station Micro provides an adaptable and easy-to-install solution to significantly enhance Sigfox IoT service coverage to billions of devices.
With its compact form factor, integrated antenna, and Power-over-Ethernet capabilities, Sigfox Access Station Micro can be easily installed within minutes and connect to Sigfox’s Cloud via existing Internet access or cellular networks.
Following its ambition to cover the overall planet for limitless opportunities and applications, Sigfox Access Station Micro will be available for online purchase.

A single gateway could cover large rural areas, hundreds of square kilometers without efforts. Its extremely low energy consumption enables remote IoT applications where no power source is available with a single small solar panel and a low bandwidth satellite backhaul.
