T-Mobile launches IoT developer kit with a 32-bit MCU to build smart solutions

T-Mobile, a wireless connectivity solution provider, has announced the release of its IoT developer kit. The kit lets users connect and build applications via the T-Mobile network and will be available through T-Mobile’s DevEdge self-serve developer platform. The developer kit features multiple options for wireless connectivity with LTE CAT-M, 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi and Bluetooth BLE and a complete software development kit.

The developer board integrates a 32-bit Arm Cortex-M4 microcontroller, an embedded high-performance processor that offers digital signal processing capabilities. It is a complete out-of-the-box solution that automatically connects to the T-Mobile network without additional software firmware development. The kit runs on the Zephyr real-time operating system for integrated cloud services.

“T-Mobile is opening doors for innovators of all kinds, making building for wireless simple and easy … the way it should be. As the Un-carrier, we’re empowering developers, no matter their size or what stage of the development process they’re in, to create innovative connected solutions,” said Rob Roy, SVP of emerging products at T-Mobile.

T-Mobile introduced the developer kit to allow startups like Pano AI and InDro Robotics to access its mobile network to create smart solutions. T-Mobile also gives free access to its APIs, like device location, SMS notification and diagnostic tools. The CAT-M IoT network SIM slot on the T-Mobile developer kit provides speeds of up to 375 Kbps. The kits come with a main developer board, protective case, battery, power adapter, USB charging cable and user guide. They also have a SIM card that comes preloaded with 500MB of data.

Earlier this year, T-Mobile announced DevEdge platform, a self-serve developer platform to make it easy for any developer to create connected smart solutions. Through the T-Mobile DevEdge developer platform, engineers can leverage APIs and open-source projects to improve device performance.

“Our IoT Developer Kit, a fully functional out-of-the-box kit that connects seamlessly to our leading network, is our next big step in driving that innovation forward,” Roy added.

In September, T-Mobile teamed up with Mixhalo, a 5G Open Innovation Lab graduate and startup. This collaboration showcased 5G and edge computing solutions, delivering an immersive audio experience at live events.
