It’s a little over a year since UnaBiz was appointed the new owner of Sigfox in conclusion of receivership proceedings for Sigfox and its subsidiary Sigfox France. Recently UnaBiz has made a flurry of announcements concerning Sigfox, including with new partners Actility, Loriot, Semtech, Senet, and The Things Industries.
UnaBiz has also made some significant changes to the commercial frameworks that underpin the Sigfox operator ecosystem. The company has released the Sigfox device code and libraries to the public, changed its commercial relationships with Sigfox Network Operators, and refocussed on monetising the provision of core network services.
In this report we unpick the significance of the recent announcements, and also some of the changes that have not been publicised.
