Hello and welcome to the IoT World!

If you are Sigfox Operator, this guide is ideal for you. 

In order to successfully deploy and enjoy SimpleHw devices it is necessary to understand the basics.

You always need the following 6 things:

1. Sigfox know-how (you can contact your local Sigfox Operator for training)
2. Understanding your use case/business case - Why, What, When, Where, How, How much it will cost, How much profit it will generate
3. Hardware (actual working devices that cover your use case)
4. Sigfox coverage
5. Connectivity subscription to Sigfox
6. A way how to process and visualize the data - IoT platform

Step by step guide:

1. Please see and do proper Qualification, Discovery and Poc planning.

See the webinars about:

  • Sensors
  • Sales pitfalls
  • API 6
  • IOFrog

 

2. Define the use case/business case with the partner and end-customer before starting to test any device.

Please provide this information if you need any assistance in setting up the devices.

    • What is the use case/business case ? 
    • Why do you want to use IoT and Sigfox? Where is the value ?
    • When do you want to measure, when do you want to transmit? Is it event/action based or time based?
    • Where will the device will be ? Where do you want to measure?
    • How, by which sensors, at what precision do you need to measure and evaluate ? How will you evaluate the project?
    • Is the Total cost of ownership (TCO) drafted?
    • Is the Return on investment (ROI) calculated?
    • For a more detailed discussion see the Discovery document.
    • Please purchase the Hardware at the Simple Hardware e-shop website. If you want to recommend any local Premier partner please direct them to the Partner’s page.
    • Be aware that in order to have working Sigfox WiFI Atlas you need special connectivity.
    • You have several options:
  • Process the data directly from Sigfox backend (see ask.simplehw.eu for documentation).
  • Use www.iofrog.com as an IoT platform for PoC and field deployment. 
  • Use www.iofrog.com as a middleware to process the data and push them to your systems.Use any other IoT platform. See their list here.
