Sigfox Base Station Block Diagram



Sigfox is a French company founded in 2009 that builds wireless networks to connect IoT devices. Their original focus was on industrial/professional applications such as water meters. Sigfox has recently been applying their technology to consumer applications such as smart watches and home alarms. The key parameters for the application is the requirement to exchange continuously and securely small amounts of data.

A wireless base station is a transceiver that connects other devices to one another and/or to a wider area. In this particular application we are implementing a Sigfox base station.
