Sigfox Launches World’s First “IoT network-as-a-service”, Bringing IoT Connectivity to Billions of Unconnected Devices
At the Sigfox World IoT Expo, Sigfox reaches a new milestone in the history of IoT, as it launches a suite of new services that will connect billions of wireless devices that are not yet connected to the internet.
This Smart News Release features multimedia. View the full release here: http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20170926005774/en/
This game-changing development has been made possible by the cognitive capabilities of the Sigfox network and its Software Define Radio technology, where all the network and computing complexity is managed in the Cloud rather than on the device. This enables Sigfox to constantly improve its network features and make them available by simple software upgrade.
Connecting the unconnected
Admiral Ivory is a simplified connectivity service which now makes it possible to transform any short-range wireless device into a long-range IoT device, with a hardware component as little as $0.20, using something as simple as the silicon chip that you find in a garage door remote control.
Unlike other services currently available on the market, Admiral Ivory opens the door to creating connected, disposable assets and one-time IoT applications. Imagine being able to connect and track small parcels and letters. Through Admiral Ivory, this will be technically and economically possible – presenting a significant opportunity for industrial packing, logistics and retail industries.
This complements Sigfox’s ultra-low-cost connectivity solution, now named Sigfox Admiral Blue. The technology enables inexpensive modules from as little as $2 to send tiny packets of information over long distances, while using very little power.
Together, these services are set to enable millions of entry-level devices to gain internet connectivity.
IoT Connectivity Anywhere: Cognition service
Most IoT applications are sold and operated locally. However, manufacturers looking to export their devices around the world need to be able to deliver devices that can run in any part of the world, if they are to achieve economies of scale.
In response, Sigfox announces its new Sigfox Monarch cognitive service, which offers seamless connectivity worldwide by allowing IoT devices to recognize and automatically adapt to local communications standards.
Sigfox’s technology operates in unlicensed bands worldwide, with radio frequencies ranging from 862 to 928 MHz. Using unlicensed bands enable devices to send their data to the cloud while using little power, at very low cost. Sigfox Monarch provides a unique radio recognition service enabling devices to manage the radio frequency changes, without any additional hardware such as GPS or Wi-Fi chipset.
By enabling ‘globe trotter’ assets that can seamlessly adapt as they move across borders, Monarch represents a game-changer for logistics, freight, and consumer goods industries. Lost luggage will become a distant memory thanks to Sigfox Monarch, as the luggage can be tracked worldwide. It will also allow manufacturers, including consumer electronics and white goods, to have a single hardware design for products sold around the world.
These new services add an extra layer of functionality and value to the existing Sigfox geolocation service. Atlas, previously known as Sigfox Geolocation, is the world’s lowest cost integrated geolocation function. It uses radio-signal analysis to determine the device’s location. Unlike GPS, the service does not increase power consumption and requires no extra hardware, beyond the already-integrated Sigfox chip.
Ludovic Le Moan, CEO at Sigfox, said, “Each of these services radically reduce the costs and barriers to entry for manufacturers that want to break into the IoT market. Manufacturers will benefit from faster time to market, lower cost of production and the ability to deliver greater customization for each device.”
New simplified onboarding process
In addition to its newly announced services, Sigfox has also launched a new, streamlined, onboarding process, Sigfox Sunrise. Designed to help partners cut their development time and costs, Sunrise includes:
- Sigfox Partner Network: the one-stop source for all resources partners need for their IoT project, from hardware to devices, development kits, platforms and end-to-end solutions. More information at https://partners.sigfox.com
- Sigfox BUILD: an online portal dedicated to supporting device makers and solution providers at every stage of their journey, from designing to certification and scalability of IoT projects. More information at https://build.sigfox.com
- Sigfox BUY: this new service makes it easy and fast for partners, developers, universities, anyone to quickly buy Sigfox devices and connect them to the Sigfox global IoT network, with a starter offer at 10 devices. More information at https://buy.sigfox.com

OTEZLA® (Apremilast) Phase III Data Showed Significant Improvements in Patients with Active Behçet’s Disease with Oral Ulcers17.2.2018 21:00 | Pressemelding
Celgene Corporation (NASDAQ:CELG) today announced that data from the phase III RELIEF™ clinical trial of OTEZLA® (apremilast) in patients with active Behçet’s Disease with oral ulcers were presented in a late-breaking oral presentation at the 2018 American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) Annual Meeting. The results showed statistically significant reductions in oral ulcers with apremilast 30 mg twice daily (BID) versus placebo through week 12. OTEZLA (apremilast) is Celgene’s oral selective inhibitor of phosphodiesterase 4 (PDE4). Behçet’s Disease is a rare, chronic, multi-system inflammatory syndrome. Oral ulcers, the most common manifestation of Behçet’s Disease, can be disabling and have a substantial effect on quality of life. This study primarily evaluated the effect of apremilast on recurring oral ulcers in patients with active Behçet’s Disease who were previously treated with at least one topical or systemic medication. “Reducing oral ulcers, which are painful and can negatively im

Twelve-month data from the Personalised Anti-TNF therapy in Crohn’s disease Study (PANTS) was presented at the 13th Congress of the European Crohn’s and Colitis Organisation (ECCO). The results indicate that the clinical effectiveness, safety and immunogenicity of Celltrion Healthcare’s CT-P13 (biosimilar infliximab) in patients with Crohn’s disease (CD) is comparable to those treated with reference infliximab as well as those treated with adalimumab.1 The UK-wide, three-year prospective observational study investigated primary non-response (PNR), loss of response (LOR) and adverse drug reactions (ADR) to infliximab (reference infliximab and CT-P13) and adalimumab in 1610 CD patients. The data show comparable efficacy between CT-P13, reference infliximab and adalimumab in relation to PNR, LOR and ADR rates. In addition, at week 54, the remission rate was 39.7%, 39.0% and 32.7% for reference infliximab, CT-P13 and adalimumab treated patients, respectively.1 The PANTS study investigates
