Communication protocols

The set of supported communication protocols is still being extended. Each of the protocol documentations describes the current state. You can find here information on configuration of communication lines, stations and I/O tags for individual protocols. Only some of the supported communication protocols are described in the on-line help. Documentation of the others is available on demand.

The Sigfox protocol is similar to LoRaWAN, and it uses different frequency bands. It uses the infrastructure built by  Sigfox and its partners and messages (with a maximum payload size of 12 bytes, and a maximum frequency of 140 messages a day) are transmitted to the cloud (backend.sigfox.com) from which they can be obtained through the REST API.

The communication was tested between sensors and the Sigfox cloud using curl utility to retrieve data via https.
