Murata bridges LoRa and SigFox

16 August 2017 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Murata announced the results of a collaboration with both STMicroelectronics and SigFox to port the SigFox stack to co-exist alongside the LoRa stack on Murata’s small form factor Type ABZ LoRaWAN module. By providing both LoRa and SigFox capabilities, this approach allows customers to decide which network technology serves the application best depending on location, service requirements and cost.

Both networks offer similar low-power wide area network (LPWAN) capabilities, targeting applications in smart meters, facility management, asset tracking, and a range of other uses in the IoT space. While each has differences, the common goal is network coverage with good quality of service (QoS). By supporting both standards, Murata’s module can also bridge both networks, providing even greater deployment flexibility by allowing a dual-mode operation from a single firmware package that can be used globally.

Stuart Hanford, technical marketing manager at Arrow Altech Distribution (which distributes Murata products locally), says: “By combining these two complementary technologies, Murata has produced a module suitable for the many different kinds of applications our customers wish to use it for.”
