Developing IoT solutions with the SigFox Network – a CityLabs Workshop

January 30 - January 31

CityLabs is proud to host a 2 day workshop on SigFox network technologies lead by WND with the support of The Open University.

The workshop is open to any SME and has the objective of introducing SigFox, a low-powered network that enables efficient data acquisition from geographically distributed IoT devices.

The activities will be spread over two days, the first day will focus on the business opportunities enabled by SigFox and a set of use cases currently under development will be illustrated.

The second day, targeted to a technical audience, will guide the participants through an end-to-end demonstrator of an IoT application, including the setup of an IoT device, the connection to the SigFox network, and the usage of the MK Data Hub to store data and support end-user applications.
