M2COMM’s ‘Uplynx’ SoC passes Sigfox Verified ™ Certification

One design for Europe, Middle East and Africa, Americas and Asia Pacific, device makers can now exploit the benefits of simplified logistics and cost savings

[Hsinchu, Taiwan, January 23th 2017] M2COMM, a leading Internet of Things (IoT) provider, today announced that its flagship ‘Uplynx’ SoC had been certified by Sigfox. Now the Uplynx SoC and Sigfox verified™ wireless modules for Europe, MEA, Americas and Asia Pacific are available to device makers.

Uplynx targets device makers that require a cost-effective, low power, small form factor solution. The demand for cost-effective BOM is also reflected in the certified reference design; no expensive TCXO (uses standard crystals); capable of delivering 22dBm transmission power without using an external amplifier; a 32-bit processor, 128 KB flash and 24K SRAM built-in provides all the computational power and flexibility developers need and removes the requirement for an external MCU. In addition, device makers are able to design one PCB suitable for multiple regions using Uplynx, saving significant engineering effort and management hassles.

To speed up the development cycle for simple applications, M2COMM provides an SDK and a unique compiler-free EasyAT design environment for developers. Whilst the SDK provides access to all of the features on the Uplynx SoC, the EasyAT allows simple application developers to finish their designs in much shorter timeframes.

M2COMM’s Uplynx is a powerful SoC platform that enabled us to develop a prototype in less than 2 months. The quality of support we received from M2COMM speeded up our team’s development drastically.” said Philippe Chiu, Managing Director of UnaBiz, SIGFOX operator in Singapore and Taiwan. “I am very happy to see M2COMM joining the SIGFOX ecosystem, bringing a one-of-a-kind multi region platform.”

 

“Increasing numbers of LPWAN appliance developers are turning to the Uplynx SoC for their designs, with its highly integrated, multi region design, developers are seeing economic benefits through reductions in design spins and cycles.” said CK Tseng, VP of Worldwide Sales & Marketing at M2COMM. “We believe that total cost of ownership will be the main driver to design adoption and with that in mind we set about designing and manufacturing our Uplynx SoC in a way that reduced the dependency for additional components and saved the BOM cost for our customers. The LPWAN market is still in its infancy, but with the M2COMM Uplynx at the forefront, it’s going to grow quickly.”

“Working closely with Sigfox operators around the world, M2COMM has proven to be a valuable partner of our global ecosystem,” said Tony Francesca, Vice President of Global Ecosystem Partners at Sigfox. “With M2COMM’s Uplynx SoC providing a compelling, reliable and multiregional solution, we look forward to enabling many IoT use cases and millions of connected devices over Sigfox’s global network”.

Pricing and Availability

Samples and production quantities of the M2COMM Uplynx SoC and Sigfox verified™ wireless modules for Europe, MEA, Americas and Asia Pacific are available now. To simplify application development, M2COMM offers the Uplynx evaluation kit at USD $49.99. To purchase product samples and developments tools, visit http://www.m2comm.co/Uplynx/.

M2COMM Accelerates Retail 4.0 by Proposing its Innovative Electronic Shelf Label Fresher Packs

For an entry level price of just US$1,500 savvy and forward thinking retailers can convert to a smart store NOW with the most advanced Internet of Things technology.

Hsinchu, Taiwan, January 10th 2017.

M2COMM, a leading Internet of Things (IoT) solution provider, today announced its Electronic Shelf Label (ESL) Fresher Packs for retailers to enable faster, reliable and cost effective shelving signage.  At an affordable US$1,500[1] small and medium-sized retail businesses and stores can purchase one of M2COMM’s ESL Fresher packs and enjoy the convenience and efficiency that IoT brings to the Retail 4.0 era. M2COMM’s ESL Fresher packs will provide retailers with the flexibility to scale up and purchase further ESL tags as needed, allowing them to bypass and overcome existing purchasing and quantity constraints. Retail store size will no longer be a barrier to adopting IoT technology and its advantages.

A new pricing technology to sell more, go green and go savvy

ESL plays a crucial role in the Retail 4.0 transformation, providing instant and dynamic pricing updates based on the inventory and marketing status of retail products. Adoption of ESL reduces human error associated with traditional pricing and product labeling methods, enabling retail staff to spend more time providing customer service, increasing customer satisfaction and encouraging repeat and increased sales. Aimed at retail stores regardless of size, M2COMM’s scalable ESL system can be integrated with all existing Point of Sale (POS) systems, whilst its neat design creates a retail environment that encourages impulse purchases. Powered by coin-cell batteries with a lifespan of more than 5 years, M2COMM’s ESL technology provides a sustainable, paperless and environmentally friendly pricing and labeling solution that can save time and money for the retailer.

Retailers; we hear your heart! 

To accelerate the uptake of and so enjoy the benefits of the IoT based Retail 4.0 environment, M2COMM ESL Fresher Packs are designed to be setup and deployed easily and quickly. After integration with the on-site POS system, ESL operates behind the scenes, running quickly and efficiently to predetermined criteria appropriate to the retail outlet it is installed for. A wide and diverse group of retailers from around the world have recognized M2COMM’s ESL quality-proven, robust and reliable features:

“I am so surprised that M2COMM’s ESL system only took me less than an hour to set up via the Quick Installation Guide. With its stable and reliable operation, adopting this system saves at least 40% of our time and hence significantly improves store performance,” said Taylor Chan, owner of Po San Frozen Food Limited in Hong Kong.  

“Digital price tag solution is a fairly new concept for the Indian retail sector,” says Sanjay Garg from Maxworth Electronic Systems in New Delhi. “India is home to 22 scheduled languages with mostly their own script. M2COMM’s ESL can display in local language/scripts and English/Hindi, which provides us an essential tool to connect well with the local clients.” 

“As we need to be flexible in our pricing strategies, pricing optimization must be real-time; M2COMM’s ESL has been smoothly integrated into our POS system and we can adopt it very soon. With its stable and reliable operation, I can do just one click to get all the prices sorted.” says Mr. Fabien Sublet, owner of Pharmacy Ibis, French Guiana. “Also, the functionality I like most from M2COMM’s ESL system is the benefit for real-time stock management; it allows pharmacists to know if it is time to place a new order on products or just to supply from the stock. We love it so much.”

“We are committed to helping our customers enjoy the convenience of Retail 4.0 with the latest IoT technology,” says Dr. Derrick Wei, CEO of M2COMM. “We hope the M2COMM ESL Fresher Packs, at only US$1,500, will attract more retailers to experience our reliable and value-added functions.”

Availability

M2COMM ESL Fresher Packs will be available from January 24th 2017. Initially 3 packages are being offered in the following sizes: 1.6 inch, 2.2 inch and 2.9 inch ESL tags. Each Fresher Pack is bundled with all the necessary software and components; the ESL management software suite, Access Point, Router, Barcode Scanner and 50 tags[2]. The Fresher Packs are specifically designed for and targeted at retailers such as convenience stores, cosmetics outlets, pharmacies, supermarkets and even grocery stores. With any of the 3 ESL packages on offer, retailers can easily adopt and build up their own Fresher site simply and easily.
