Singapore has long positioned itself as a global test bed for emerging new technologies. Despite being a small country, the impact it has on the global community has always gone beyond its physical size. 

 

Last year, the country topped the Mercer ranking of more than 200 cities around the world for the best infrastructure. Its robust infrastructure, world-class financial services sector, business friendly regulatory policies, and legal environment make Singapore the ideal testbed for fin-tech, AI, robotics and IoT technologies.

 

With the rise of Low Power Wide Area IoT networks like Sigfox, UnaBiz is establishing Singapore as "The Global IoT Innovation Hub" – A global showroom for all IoT innovations built for massive deployment, by equipping the city state with the best quality, affordable IoT network in the world. 

 

Singapore’s remarkable ability to attract and nurture tech innovations and entrepreneurs around the globe and Sigfox’s world class global IoT network will put Singapore at the at the forefront of IoT innovation.
