Sigfox network coverage reaches 90% of Hong Kong territory

Thinxtra announces Hong Kong’s First IoT network deployed with coverage of 90% of Hong Kong .

Internet of Things (IoT) service and solutions provider Thinxtra, announces Hong Kong’s first IoT network reaches full deployment covering more than 90% of the territory.

With its powerful, practical, small messaging IoT gateways installed across the territory, Thinxtra’s Sigfox IoT network now enables business, government and Hong Kong citizens to connect without the costly, complicated, insecure and risk of obsolescence that comes with private network deployment and integration.

Sigfox is the first global cellular IoT network fully dedicated to connected objects, forming a key infrastructure to support industry 4.0 and smart city solutions.  As the exclusive Hong Kong network operator of Sigfox and the first wireless IoT license holder here, Thinxtra has built a cost-effective, secure and extensive IoT-enabling network. The Thinxtra LPWA gateways will allow the Hong Kong-wide adoption of IoT solutions, in logistics, construction, smart facility management, health, household, industrial machinery and smart-city.

“The widespread implementation of IoT devices will help enhance Hong Kong’s economic competitiveness and quality of life. Since launching in Hong Kong late last year, Thinxtra has been focused on two important tasks: nurturing the local IoT ecosystem to stimulate innovation and rolling out the network to make such innovation possible,” said Murray Hankinson, Managing Director of Thinxtra Asia. “Devices can also roam freely without extra cost to Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Europe and the USA with the whole of Asia expected to be covered by 2019.”

Hankinson says “we have been working with HKBN (one of the largest residential broadband and telecommunications service providers in Hong Kong) to accelerate the deployment of our LPWA network. HKBN is a like-minded organisation, keen to bring and enable innovation to Hong Kong.”

Joe Sun, General Manager of Thinxtra’s Hong Kong Operations added“We are delighted to announce the network has reached near full coverage and solutions can now be connected, across Hong Kong, for as little at HK$20 per year”. “ We continue to support practical IoT solutions and innovation in Hong Kong, Thinxtra continues to collaborate on IoT R&D with the HKSTP, working with the SCC and other local partners on the design of devices, sensors and solutions.”

The Hong Kong Thinxtra network connects this growing IoT ecosystem to Thinxtra networks in Australia and New Zealand, as well as other Sigfox networks and IoT ecosystems in 48 countries around the world, providing access to a population of around 803 million people.
