Atari and SIGFOX haveannounced a global partnership to develop a line of new connected devices based on Ataris iconic brand.The cooperation will bring together Ataris brand and creative power with SIGFOXs unique value proposition: connecting the physical world to the Internet through a simple, reliable, low-cost, energy-efficient solution.
The collaboration will cover a wide range of new Atari products, from the very simple to the highly sophisticated, providing customers with an easy way to know at any time where the devices are and what their status is. The initial product line will include categories such as home, pets, lifestyle and safety. By connecting to SIGFOXs global network, the products will benefit from its competitive advantages: a very long battery life and a simple solution that does not require local Internet connectivity and pairing. As soon as the battery is inserted in the object, it is immediately connected to the network.
Atari, which has disruption rooted in their DNA, was quick to envision the transformative role that the Internet of Things can play in interactive entertainment, said SIGFOX CEO Ludovic Le Moan. Our network bridges the virtual and physical worlds simply, reliably and inexpensively and this collaboration will launch a new dimension to gaming, while supporting features that are limited only by the imagination.
SIGFOX is transforming the way people are connecting to their objects in a simple and intuitive way. By partnering together and using SIGFOXs dedicated IoT connectivity, we are going to create amazing products with our brand, said Fred Chesnais, Chief Executive Officer, Atari. We look forward to our collaboration with SIGFOX and releasing new products to the mass market on a global scale.
