Abertis, Sigfox Launch M2M Network in Avila
Jun 27 14
Abertis Telecom has launched an M2M network in the city of Avila, the first fruits of the agreement reached with Sigfox earlier in the year. Under the terms of the agreement, Abertis plans to deploy the internet of things technology developed by Sigfox throughout Spain, creating a network of smart cities. Sigfox, which has already successfully launched its infrastructure in France, the Netherlands and Russia, will employ Abertis Telecom's network of telecommunication towers to offer what it describes as a low-cost, low-consumption two-way connectivity service, allowing the same device to operate in any country in which Sigfox is present.

Abertis and SIGFOX Announce Partnership to Deploy the Internet of Things Network in Spain
Feb 11 14
Abertis and SIGFOX announced Their Partnership to Deploy the World's First Internet of Things Network in Spain. The Internet of Things network will be deployed nationwide in Spain on Abertis Telecom infrastructures and will thus connect Spain to the SIGFOX global network, already available in France, the Netherlands and Russia. SIGFOX announces the expansion of the network to Spain. Abertis Telecom's extensive network of telecommunication towers is ideal for rolling out the SIGFOX network, which will be deployed by Abertis. In addition the Abertis wholesale offering in Spain will be key to developing the local ecosystem in a wide range of Internet of Things sectors. The partnership between Abertis and SIGFOX will enable Abertis to provide a two-way connectivity solution tailor-made for the Internet of Things. The SIGFOX network is attracting major interest from numerous sectors, including energy, smart cities, environmental monitoring, security, healthcare and transport, which are all very active sectors in Spain. This partnership, which marks a major milestone in the worldwide rollout of the SIGFOX network, is the result of months of close collaboration and knowledge exchange between the two companies to design a network fulfilling the requirements for an Internet of Things. The collaboration between Abertis and SIGFOX further validates the expert opinions: the Internet of Things needs a new and tailor-made network, with low energy consumption and simplicity of use, while remaining very cost effective (modem, subscription, IT integration). The network rollout in Spain will begin in February 2014 and the Abertis and SIGFOX teams are ready to assist customers and the ecosystem in parallel with the network rollout.
