Thinxtra’s national 0G Network - Dedicated to Massive IoT
Organisations don’t need to invest in building and maintaining IoT networks to realise the proven efficiency gains of large scale IoT deployments connecting high volumes of assets or facilities. Thinxtra has done the work for you and enables Massive IoT projects, in the shortest time frames at the lowest total cost of ownership and risk, so you get the data you need to realise your return on investment.
Our reliable and secure 0G Network combined with the right devices, data platform and services allows you to focus on your business objectives, while we take care of the build and operation of the IoT network infrastructure. We remove commercial IoT complexities with a simple, fixed connectivity subscription fee per device you connect to the 0G Network and can even deliver end-to-end solutions based on managed service fees.

What is the 0G Network
Thinxtra’s national network infrastructure is powered by Sigfox 0G (Zero-G) the global Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) communication protocol and cloud services provided by Unabiz Group, leading global Massive IoT service provider. 0G has been adopted as a standard in more than 70 countries, where local 0G Network Operators like Thinxtra own and operate the public networks.
Most energy efficient
Longest battery life
Reliable & secure
Two or three IoT messages a day change everything.
The 0G Network is the most energy efficient, low-bandwidth wireless network specifically designed to connect physical assets with the digital world at massive scale. Small amounts of asset data is collected, reliably and securely transported, transformed and integrated with data analytics or business processes. The unique capability of Thinxtra’s 0G technology allows reliable prediction of the battery life of IoT devices, up to 7-10 years. This unlocks the business case for Massive IoT, tracking and monitoring unpowered assets at scale.
Thousands, hundreds of thousands or millions of IoT devices can be attached to physical assets which then simply track and monitor themselves sending you vital information such as location, temperature, movement, fill levels to name just a few.

Design Choice and Benefits
Sigfox has designed its technology and network to meet the requirements of mass IoT applications; long device battery life-cycle, low device cost, low connectivity fee, high network capacity, and long range.
Star Network Architecture
A device is not attached to a specific base station unlike cellular protocols. The broadcasted message is received by any base station in the range, which is 3 in average.
An uplink message has up to 12-bytes payload and takes an average 2s over the air to reach the base stations which monitors the spectrum looking for UNB signals to demodulate. For a 12-byte data payload, a Sigfox frame will use 26 bytes in total. The payload allowance in downlink messages is 8 bytes.
Sigfox has tailored a lightweight protocol to handle small messages. Less data to send means less energy consumption, hence longer battery life.
Ultra Narrow Band Radio Modulation
Using the Ultra Narrow Band modulation, Sigfox operate in the 200 kHz of the publicly available band to exchange radio messages over the air. Each message is 100 Hz wide and transferred at 100 or 600 bits per second a data rate, depending on the region. Hence, long distances can be achieved while being very robust against the noise.
Random Access to the Radio Frequency Resource
The transmission is unsynchronized between the device and the network. The device broadcasts each message 3 times on 3 different frequencies (frequency hopping). The base stations monitor the spectrum and look for UNB signals to demodulate.
