Quectel Wireless Solutions, the global leading supplier of wireless modules and solutions, and ARM jointly launched three mbed solutions at Quectel’s new product launch event on March 29 in Shenzhen.
The three solutions were based on Quectel LTE and LPWA modules, with the target of accelerating connected terminal development.
Terence Zhang, ARM’s Principal Application Engineer, told that the three solutions include an mbed solution based on Quectel 4G LTE EC2X module, an open-source platform for IoT development based on multimode LPWA BG96 module, and a development kit with Arduino interface integrating Quectel NB-IoT BC68 module.
For the 4G LTE mbed solution, it integrates Quectel LTE EC2X modules and ARM mbed Cloud Client components, and is able to seamlessly connect with mbed Cloud platform.
The open-source platform for IoT development based on multimode LPWA BG96 module, jointly developed by ARM, Quectel and FANCONN, is a complete IoT solution integrating software, hardware and cloud platform.
It supports both NB-IoT and eMTC, as well as GPS, GLONASS and Beidou positioning, and will simplify terminal development for low power consumption IoT scenarios, such as asset tracking, public utilities, smart parking, bicycle sharing and smart agriculture.
Moreover, the Quectel BC68 mbed solution is an NB-IoT development kit with standard Arduino interfaces.
Terence noted that the three mbed solutions will be able to support most IoT application scenarios regarding communication mode and bandwidth, shorten time-to-market and reduce cost for IoT developers.
