The City of San Francisco and low power wide area network vendor SIGFOX have announced a partnership to deploy a dedicated Internet of Things network that will provide low-cost, energy-efficient and two-way connectivity for smart-city programs, as well as businesses in multiple verticals.

San Francisco is the first of 10 U.S. cities in where the French company intend to deploy its network by the first quarter of 2016. SIGFOX, whose technology is already FCC certified, is currently operating or being deployed in 10 European countries and registers over 5 million objects in its network.

SIGFOX will receive access to the City property to mount antennas in order to provide network access to the City. The Department of Technology will install the antennas as SIGFOX maintains the network.
