Cellnex, Heliot to launch Sigfox-based IoT network in Switzerland

Monday 5 March 2018 | 15:01 CET | News
Spanish operator Cellnex Telecom has joined forces with Swiss IoT provider Heliot to roll out what it describes as the first global IoT (Internet of Things) network in Switzerland. The network will be deployed over more than 350 Cellnex sites in the country, with an initial expected coverage of 50 percent of the population, rising to 90 percent in 2019. The Helios IoT network hosted by Cellnex will use Sigfox technology, enabling IoT uses that weren't previously feasible due to high implementation, operation or maintenance costs, said the partners.
