Samsung Adds SIGFOX Internet of Things Protocol to Its New Samsung ARTIKTM Platform and Invests in IoT Pioneer

PARIS — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 15, 2015 — SIGFOX today announced the integration of its Internet of Things (IoT) network protocol in the new Samsung ARTIKTM platform and Samsung Ventures’ investment in the company. The integration is designed to extend the cost-effective and energy-efficient benefits of the network to the Samsung ARTIK developers designing IoT products and services around the world. Terms of the investment were not disclosed.

Samsung ARTIK is an open platform that’s designed to enable faster and simpler development of new enterprise, industrial and consumer applications for the IoT. The platform includes a best-in-class family of integrated production-ready modules, advanced software, development boards, drivers, tools, security features and cloud connectivity designed to help accelerate development of a new generation of better, smarter IoT devices, solutions and services. Adding SIGFOX technology to the Internet-connection options in the Samsung ARTIK platform provides an extremely low-cost and energy-efficient alternative suited for small-message communication that the vast majority of IoT-connected devices will need. The integration will allow developers to quickly activate the network through a simple cloud connectivity subscription.

“At Samsung, we believe that the Internet of Things will deliver huge benefits – to society and to us as individuals. With the introduction of the Samsung ARTIK platform, we set out to accelerate innovation in hardware, software and services for the IoT, to allow the technology to more quickly tackle global challenges,” said Young Sohn, President and Chief Strategy Officer, Samsung Electronics. “As part of our Samsung ARTIK ecosystem, SIGFOX technology represents a key step forward for the IoT, as it makes it simpler for developers to create low-cost, low-power devices and services that easily connect to the network.”

“By integrating SIGFOX technology in ARTIK and including it in the platform’s ecosystem, Samsung is fueling innovation and making it very easy for developers to create new applications and services that will help deliver the potential of the Internet of Things,” said Ludovic Le Moan, CEO of SIGFOX. “Moreover, this integration positions SIGFOX technology as the ‘fourth protocol’ for Internet connectivity, joining GSM, Bluetooth and WiFi.”

Unlike systems that are still in the development stage, SIGFOX’s Ultra Narrow Band (UNB) technology for connecting devices is providing scalable, long-range, two-way connectivity and very high capacity in more than a dozen countries and major cities.

Through the SIGFOX Ready™ program, the company ensures that compatible devices have optimal radio performance and are promoted in the global SIGFOX Ready™ solution catalogue. Devices based upon the Samsung ARTIK™ platform can now easily become SIGFOX Ready™ and therefore be able to connect anywhere in the world where the SIGFOX network is available.
