Customers of IoT network infrastructure provider Sigfox will now be able to better manage data storage with the integration of Sigfox Cloud with Microsoft Azure IoT Hub. This development was recently announced by Sigfox.

Currently operating in 14 countries, including the U.S., and registering over 7 million devices in its network, Sigfox provides subscription-based low-power, wide-area (LPWA) communications dedicated to the Internet of Things.

Under the new partnership, Sigfox's cloud-to-cloud integration which will be available to both Sigfox and Microsoft customers, will allow users to use both Sigfox's low-power, wide-area network and the power of advanced analytics and storage on Microsoft Azure to collect, analyse and visualise large quantities of operational data produced by their connected devices and applications.

"Integration with Microsoft Azure IoT Hub in SIGFOX's Cloud is a key step in the evolution of the IoT, providing customers with a great alternative to investing large amounts of resources to develop and manage data storage and management themselves," said Stuart Lodge, Sigfox executive vice president global sales and partners.

"We are thrilled to have Microsoft as part of our global ecosystem as it will empower our customers' asset management tool efficiency and lower their costs".

The two companies are already working together on both start-up opportunities and large-scale joint projects with customers around the world.
