About UnaBiz and SIGFOX
UnaBiz is an IoT company specialized in SIGFOX technology. As SIGFOX Network Operator, UnaBiz provides low-power-wide-area nationwide connectivity to SIGFOX Global IoT Network across Singapore and Taiwan. UnaBiz is also developing low-cost IoT solutions and providing SIGFOX integration services to system integrators and end-customers.
We will deploy a nation-wide IoT network in Singapore to enable LPWAN network which is extremely low power, long range, cost-effective and simple-to-use connectivity for compatible devices. This network will be an open and public network, giving qualified IoT channels, service providers, SME, large enterprises and government agencies equal access. The network operates on the 920-922 MHz range, and it will be:
- Long range covering the whole Singapore
- Low in device and subscription cost so that it can be deployed pervasively
- Wireless and low power so that it can be installed and maintained easily on a very wide scale
- Doesn’t need pairing and SIM card so it can be connected easily
This will promote a vibrant and competitive market place for the IoT industry.
SIGFOX is now deployed in 24 countries, covering 1.4 million km2 and 358 million people, and connecting 7 million devices. UnaBiz Singapore was launched on 7 July 2016, and Minister Vivien was also here to grace the event. We are on track to get our Facilities Based Operator (FBO) License from IDA in early October. Installation of hotspots will start immediately and we will cover 80%-90% of the outdoor population within a month. This means we can see a pervasive outdoor coverage as early as November 2016. Further installation will continue till June 2017 to cover indoor and redundancy.
UnaMaker is an online technical forum where UnaBiz Pte Ltd communicates with our solution partners. Its objectives are:
• UnaBiz to share technology on SIGFOX network, devices, software, source code, and use cases with partners
• Online technical and use cases discussion with Partners on IoT solution development
