Wireless Logic to be the first UK reseller of Arqiva’s Sigfox network

Arqiva, has announced a new partnership with machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions provider Wireless Logic.

The partnership will see Wireless Logic become Arqiva’s first UK reseller of Sigfox low power, wide area connectivity. It is said to represent “another step in Arqiva’s journey of enabling organisations to unlock the promise of the Internet of Things (IoT)”.

Under the terms of the partnership agreement, Arqiva and Wireless Logic will work together to introduce Sigfox connectivity and solutions to Wireless Logic’s extensive customer base, as a further enhancement to its award-winning existing portfolio of connectivity and IoT offerings.

Sigfox connectivity helps remove the barriers to large-scale rollouts by delivering low cost, low power connectivity for IoT devices. Integrating this capability into the Wireless Logic offering opens up a wealth of new opportunities for businesses who previously deemed IoT solutions or services too costly or technically unviable to launch.Wireless_Logic.logo.7.15

Jon-Paul Clarke, business development director at Wireless Logic, said: “We are delighted to add the capabilities of Arqiva’s SIGFOX network to the Wireless Logic communications portfolio. This new addition to our service offering will complement our existing offerings and continue to deliver compelling propositions and value-added services to new and existing customers.”

With access to over 30 mobile network operators (MNOs) and satellite carriers, as well as Arqiva Sigfox connectivity, Wireless Logic offers a complete range of platform solutions to organisations seeking one or multiple networks with a suite of managed services to deliver resilient and secure M2M communications.SIGFOX_logo

Sean Weir, director Smart & M2M at Arqiva, said: “The Internet of Things holds vast potential for businesses looking to leverage the benefits hyper-connectivity has to offer, and we’re looking forward to seeing the market go from strength to strength. What we’ve seen so far, however, is that IoT clearly needs a far-reaching, low-power wide area network to operate across to make this happen – just like the one we’re providing.”

Weir continued: “Wireless Logic has a strong portfolio of customers across multiple verticals, all using IoT in different ways, and we’re thrilled to be partnering with them to deliver even more IoT possibilities through our SIGFOX technology.”

The Arqiva Sigfox network is already accessible by 30% of the UK population across 11 major cities and 54 towns, including Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, London, Manchester and Sheffield.
