Sigfox Education

Every entrepreneur, developer or engineer was a student once. We support universities and schools to integrate IoT into their classes, to bring Sigfox on campus, with the aim to train tomorrow’s entrepreneurs, developers, engineers and expert of the IoT sector. The program supports also professional trainings, to work closely with top managers challenged on innovative IoT project in their company. As of today, we are working with 250 academic institutions in 60 countries.

The Sigfox Education Program is focusing on Universities, Schools, professors and students, but we welcome all those willing to learn and share about IoT and Sigfox technology! 

As a feature of our Education Program, we’ve created the Learning Center to give massive access to our knowledge. All this material supports anyone to learn about IoT and of course Sigfox technology and 0G network, from a technical and business point of view. The Learning Center offers dedicated access to high-level content for our community. 

We look forward to furthering innovation with students and creating a more connected world using the Sigfox technology!

Sigfox on campus

WORKSHOP

The easiest way to get started with Sigfox is to use a devkit and to practice! 

To help you to do so, we provide guidance to drive courses and workshops, through best practices and contents. We also worked together with several board- and chip-makers in order to provide first-timers with accessible hardware.

Would you like to learn more about IoT opportunities and technical matters? Empower your local community with courses, workshops and events!

 

HARDWARE

We can provide developer kits and modules. Each devkit comes with a year of free Sigfox connectivity.


COVERAGE

The Sigfox network already covers more than 60 countries! Discover if your university/school is covered on our world map here.

Would you like to host a base station on campus and get started with Sigfox technology? Send a request, and we will do our best we can to help you, with the support of our local Operator.

If you're looking for a quick solution to speed up development and tests before having full coverage, the Sigfox SDR Dongle is a powerful and configurable radio Receiver and Transmitter that emulates the Sigfox network. It works without any network coverage, and works for all Sigfox Radio Configurations (RC).  All details are here.
