Advantech and UnaBiz Collaborate to Build the First Sigfox Internet of Things Network in Taiwan


Global intelligent systems leader Advantech (2395.TW), announced in today's UnaDay inauguration ceremony that it is building Taiwan's first Sigfox Internet of Things (IoT) network in collaboration with UnaBiz, the first dedicated IoT network operator in Asia. At the event, they demonstrated the features of Sigfox IoT connectivity service and expressed their desire to make Taiwan a global center of excellence for IoT, as well as leading Taiwanese industries toward becoming a global IoT center of trade. This collaboration between Advantech and UnaBiz, marks a significant step in that direction.

Chaney Ho, Executive Director of Advantech, stated, “In the age of IoT, the only way to seize the advantage is by collaborating with partners. Working together with French company Sigfox, who are experts in the field of IoT network technology, will be a critical step in putting Taiwan into the international spotlight for IoT innovation. First, Sigfox's network operators around the world can collect and compile users' application requirements, then provide sensor module samples for UnaBiz network verification. Afterwards, the competitive nature of Taiwan's manufacturing industry can be leveraged to recreate modules in bulk. Finally, a fully working proposition will be designed and created by Taiwanese app engineers who will establish a global SaaS service station, so that links can be established between Taiwanese industries and end-to-cloud based IoT industries.”

Chaney further stated that, “Taiwan is more than capable of designing hardware, with a strong R&D capability to create innovative IoT applications, combined with competitive manufacturing capacities. These factors demonstrate that Taiwan has all the ingredients needed to become a key player in the IoT market. Collaboration with Sigfox and its network operator UnaBiz will accelerate Taiwan on the path to becoming a global center of excellence for E2E IoT.”

Sigfox's base stations use the embedded computers of Advantech and provide services 365 days a year. Advantech M2.COM products provide the wireless modules for Sigfox verification, which enables developers to quickly build wireless systems that can be used with Sigfox's own wireless networks. Furthermore, Sigfox technology is also being incorporated into Advantech’s products and its various solutions. Advantech is proud to work closely with UnaBiz to implement the Sigfox IoT network service and help advance Taiwan on the path to becoming a global center of excellence for IoT.
