Connecting the World with SigFox
The MS1001s meter was created for utilities to be able to install a low cost accurate remote metering system without having to create additional communication infrastructure. This is accomplished by using the SigFox radio communications system. SigFox is a global network of radio communications providers optimized for sending and receiving short packets of information in the form of 12 or 8 bytes. This format is perfect for power metering and the infrastructure is already provided. Metering data is obtained by accessing SigFox’s servers directly instead o f the meter.
