Sigfox Ready Certification Offers

There are different cases depending on your project and history:

Sigfox Ready for new device

For any new device you're bringing to the market, you'll have to go through a full Certification Process and Filing. 

  • If it's your first device, you'll have to pay 1500€ to Sigfox (in addition to the tests ordered with your local test house)
  • If it's your second, third or umpteenth device, you'll have to pay 1000€ to Sigfox (in addition to the tests ordered with your local test house)

In that situation, if your device can support many RCs with the same hardware, there's only one certification to pay (but as many radiation tests with your test house as RCs your device will support)

Sigfox Ready based on another Sigfox Ready device

If you've created a new device based on a previous one, you can apply to this cases

  • If you've only changed the module, from same manufacturer, but for a different RC, and eventually changed the antenna, then you can apply to the "Derived" Device certification. Price will be 500€ to Sigfox. And you still need your device to be tested with your test house. 
  • If you've kept the same RF design, but only change a sensor, then you can apply to the "Similar" Device Certification. Price will be 500€. In that case, no radiation tests are needed since RF hasn't changed.
