Sigfox is described as a cost-effective, reliable and power-saving solution for connecting sensors and devices when sending messages (12 bytes, no payload header).
The life cycle of a Sigfox message is usually defined as follows:
A Sigfox certification confirms that a device complies with Sigfox certification specifications to ensure compatibility with Sigfox services and nominal network performance.
To meet the certification requirements, the device must meet two types of Sigfox test requirements:
Currently there are two different certification variants:
Sigfox Ready certification is mandatory for every device to be connected to the Sigfox network – with the exception of Development Solutions.
Sigfox Verified certification certifies compliance with the RF and protocol specifications of a modular design
Sigfox Ready and Sigfox Verified certifications are specific Sigfox certifications. In addition, there are country-specific testing and market approval requirements that Sigfox devices must meet. Depending on the country, the processes required to obtain market approval can vary from “self-declaration” to “classic type approval”.
We offer our customers all regulatory testing and certification services in connection with the approval of Sigfox devices. In addition, our partner network enables us to carry out Sigfox certification (Ready or Verified), so that we can offer you one-stop approval of your Sigfox device.
