The Internet of Things

In an age of technological advances, AMSI has aligned as a channel partner with global LPWA (low power wide area) network, Sigfox.

Sigfox has reinvented connectivity for the IoT as a unique connectivity solution that provides the lowest energy consumption, from device to cloud. “Simplifying communications reduces energy consumption,” explains Rautenbach. “Soon, there’ll be no need for replacing or recharging batteries, since the devices will generate energy themselves.”

With its simple approach to connectivity, Sigfox provides extremely price-competitive subscriptions, and even more importantly, enables extremely simple and cost-efficient silicon modules. The network is compatible with Bluetooth, GPS, 2G/3G/4G and Wi-Fi. It offers a software-based communications solution, where all the network and computing complexity is managed in the cloud, rather than on the devices. Taken together, these features drastically reduce energy consumption and the cost of connected devices.

So, what does all this mean for customers? AMSI customers are able to ‘switch on’ to new wireless technology and get their businesses started with an inexpensive, reliable and low-power solution for connecting sensors and devices. Sigfox links customers to a partner network, connecting the dots that make the IoT happen. In the not too distant future, the IoT will link smart industry, smart agriculture, smart automotive, smart retail, smart home and lifestyle, and utilities into one ever expanding asset management network.

“Our vision is to be at the forefront of that future, combining IoT with process automation,” concludes Rautenbach, “driving AMSI customers forward to the fourth industrial revolution with the vast array of technology and expertise we have at our disposal.”
