Sigfox, the world´s Internet of Things (IoT) service provider and first global 0G network operator and Amadeus, the provider of IT solutions for the travel and tourism industry, announce a new strategic partnership, the company said.
The agreement results from a year-long collaboration investigating business opportunities within the travel industry and developing a portfolio of solutions that will not only help meet the growing need for efficient asset tracking solutions, but also reduce operational challenges for airports and airlines.
The unique combination of Sigfox IoT expertise and Amadeus´ in-depth travel industry knowledge sees the emergence of disruptive services that will hit the market in 2020 thanks to the Sigfox and Amadeus strategic alliance, called PinPoint.
Sigfox is the initiator of the 0G network and the world´s IoT (Internet of Things) service provider. Its global network allows billions of devices to connect to the Internet, in a straightforward way, while consuming as little energy as possible. Sigfox´s unique approach to device-to-cloud communications addresses the three greatest barriers to global IoT adoption: cost, energy consumption and global scalability.
Amadeus´ solutions connect travelers to the journeys they want through travel agents, search engines, tour operators, airlines, airports, hotels, cars and railways.
We have developed our technology in partnership with the travel industry for over 30 years.
