Order signed between partner and SO to allow a defined quantity of tokens and to define the number of device messages per day
collection of information used by the certification team to understand the compliancy to the verified Module or Reference Design, the position of the end product in the anechoic chamber during radiation tests, the antenna design …
Sigfox uplink classification defines EIRP (Equivalent Isotropic Radiated Power) intervals for each radio configuration: RC1, RC2, RC3 and RC4
Each radio configuration includes 4 uplink classes: 0u, 1u, 2u and 3u
Channel Partner Agreement will allow Channel to use the Services and enable mutual partnership.
Central Registration Authority
Development License Agreement provides rights to Partners to develop products for Sigfox Verified and Sigfox Ready certifications. The only rights are for developing a product to submit to certification lab and a limited ability to demonstrate but NOT to sell nor use the SIGFOX trademark (including Ready or Verified)
End user material embedding specific sensors and application
Equivalent Isotropically Radiated Power (or effective isotropical radiated power). In radio communication systems, EIRP is the amount of power that a theoretical isotropic antenna (which evenly distributes power in all directions) would emit to produce the peak power density observed in the direction of maximum antenna gain. EIRP can take into account the losses in transmission line and connectors and includes the gain of the antenna.
Ecosystem Partner Agreement will enable company to be recognized as “Sigfox Partner”, be published on our Sigfox Partner Network Website, and enable joint promotion, lead generation and revenue generation.
Effective Radiating Power.
Couple of identifier and secrete key to be flashed into the modem and collected into the CRA.
Industrial, Scientific and Medical (radio bands).
Library and Distribution Agreement provides rights to Partners in selling and distributing their certified products, royalty free. To be used only after a product has passed certification. Provides rights to manufacture, sell, and distribute as well as use the Sigfox brand
Low Power Wide Area Network
self-contained assembly of electronic components, passive components and circuitry to be soldered onto a board
Non-Disclosure Agreement will ensure that the parties do not disclose information defined in the agreement.
Operation Support System
Portability authorisation code
Printed circuit board
Radio configuration (RC)
Within a given Sigfox zone, local regulations may impose specific rules to operate in the unlicensed bands.
Sigfox RC defines the radio parameters in which the device shall operate: Sigfox operating frequencies, output power, spectrum access mechanism, throughput, coexistence with other radio technologies.
Collection of schematics, bill of material and layout to be implemented on a board
Software Defined Radio
Sigfox accredited external certification laboratory
Sigfox has accredited external laboratories to perform radiated tests for the Sigfox certification. They are available in the Sigfox Partner Network
Collection of information gathered by the partner to prove the similarity characteristics of a product based on another Sigfox Ready TM product
Sigfox Operator (previously SNO)
Right to communicate on the Sigfox Network. Token is taken at first device communication.
Sigfox service operates in the ISM and SDR bands worldwide from 862 to 928 MHz.
Global operations are split into three geographical zones: each zone has a different set of parameters which clearly dimension the device hardware implementation: mainly frequency range, maximum radiated power and radio front end specificities
