Re: Competition is heating up
I was wondering if the move into Brazil might be fraught with some cautions as the virus scares are affecting that country, and certainly scares for Olympic visitors. Even though a "network partner in each market is actually funding the build-out for their country," one might be a little worried if the partner gets into some difficulty with funding due to possible reductions as the economy possibly turns down a bit.

Re: Competition is heating up
With 100 cities under consideration the plan to move into the so-calling low hanging fruit sector may very well be successful for Sigfox. Looking to use technology "designed for a very specific set of characteristics that allows billions of things to participate in IoT that otherwise could not," may well work out to move ahead of IoT promoters trying for higher cost solutions.

Re: beyond cities
It's interesting how the number of devices or percentage of the market is thought no be a crucial aspect yet. It's said, "I don't know that we have a particular point where we say, "This number is successful, this number is not." But, I wonder if that's what Sigfox really is looking to in it's business plan. Getting to the 100 markets seems like they are in fact trying to get the "numbers" even if they rationalize in public they're not.

Re: Competition is heating up
San Francisco has been at the forefront of developing innovative ideas and then willing to share them with other municipalities.  I had a chance to confer w/one of the officials a number of years ago as I was contemplating doing a similar outreach effort utilizing twitter to facilitate issue reporting & community safety outreach.   The City ended up outsourcing it because bringing the open source code required in-house maintenance that the City did not have--being a contract City.

Re: Competition is heating up
I think there are a number of things that San Francisco can do to help the city with IoT. Parking and enforcement is one area. Sensors could also help to collect traffic date in the city and improve the flow or cars in various spots where they build up. There's opportunity in other areas of the city as well.

beyond cities
I agree that Sigfox should look beyond cities as well. There are very large areas in North America which are not covered by cell connectivity at all. But there is lot of things there: roads, transportation, agriculture, forests, water, and mining. Roads maintenance, location analytics, soil moisture, forest fires, weather condition and water levels monitoring requires technology like Sigfox in these areas.

Competition is heating up
There are quite a few ways to skin a cat -- a gross, old-saying, I know -- but for IoT transmission technologies it seems to be true and with the massive market opp in front of us, we are starting to see players jockey for positions. I must admit, it's exciting to watch and see how things play out.
