INTERVIEW WITH YANN STRAUB, SIGFOX RUSSIA CTO & CO-FOUNDER

Yann-Straub

“Sigfox — is not only about the technology of IoT that we’d like to implement in Russia, it’s about doing business in a different way”

Today IoT technologies are entering the world in a very active way. It was first only B2C, but now full speed touching the B2B world. Thanks to them we can see how many parking places there are left in front of the museum or how much pollen there is in Moscow today and much more. French Tech met with Yann Straub, CTO and Cofounder of Sigfox Russia — operator of the Sigfox 0G network — and asked him about this transformation of the world today.

Yann is a French who has lived in Russia since 2005. He graduated from Bauman Moscow State Technological University and worked in Schneider Electric company in the city of Samara and then as an advisor in the field of energy transformation. In 2019 he and his partner Eric Brisset created 2 IoT operator — Sigfox Russia and 0G baltics in Lithuania and Latvia — all based on 0G technology from Sigfox.

Yann, could you tell me about Sigfox in general? Is this company famous in France or worldwide?

Sigfox is a French technology company that was created in 2010 and now has clients everywhere in the world, with operators in 71 countries, and revenue of more than 50 Mln EUR. Sigfox builds wireless networks to connect low-power objects that need to be continuously on and emit small amounts of data with very low level of energy.They call it 0G technology in opposition to 5G and big volume of data.

Sigfox helps customers to mass capture and extract data from millions of asset connected through the sigfox network — we call it mass IOT. This can be the estimation of the level of oxygene in one room in a day care center, tracking of people attending the conference or of cargo going from one point to another. The application are illimited.

The IT-solution provided by Sigfox can transport the data collected by the devices to different platform that will transform it into comprehensible facts that describe and advice the customer about actions to be taken. So sometimes this process can really optimise the work with significant insights. That’s why I prefer to say that Sigfox is not only a technology, it’s about changing the way of doing business. This is by the way key — IOT will only be profitable, only if we create new business models.
