Sigfox today announced a partnership with OleumTech® Corporation, a leading provider of M2M communications and industrial automation solutions.
As one of the largest Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) partnerships for Sigfox to-date, global customers will soon benefit from out-of-the-box Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) wireless connectivity leveraging OleumTech’s patented self-contained, battery-powered wireless transmitter technology.
OleumTech manufactures and distributes industrial wireless automation systems across sectors including Water and Energy. Their products have radically transformed how companies gather data in the field, providing visibility to disparate assets, especially in remote, hazardous locations, enabling real-time optimized decisions regarding resource deployment and regulatory compliance. With a global installed base of over 350,000 devices, OleumTech’s products provide critical data for measurement variables such as pressure, flow, temperature, level, moisture, etc.
With the majority of industrial and utility assets isolated or too expensive to connect through tradition means, Sigfox’s LPWAN network provides a low cost connectivity solution for the industry as a whole, enabling low device battery consumption and scalability on a global level. Through this partnership, customers will benefit from the Sigfox managed connectivity layer so that asset monitoring is streamlined and the essential data is delivered in nearly real-time.
Michael Orr, VP Sales and Partnerships at Sigfox, said:
