Sierra Wireless expands mangOH ecosystem

Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ:SWIR) (TSX:SW), the provider of fully integrated device-to-cloud solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), has released alpha samples of its next-generation mangOH® open source hardware platform, inviting the IoT developer community to influence the final product, the company said.

mangOH Yellow, a “super sensor” for connected IoT, allows developers to measure and monitor virtually anything, with all of the interoperable building blocks needed to rapidly develop and productize low-power Industrial IoT applications.

The award-winning mangOH platform helps developers address many of the challenges that limit their ability to quickly and cost-effectively bring connected cellular LPWA (Cat-M1/LTE-M and NB-IoT) and 2G/3G/4G products to market. mangOH´s open source model, industrial-grade components and extensive ecosystem enable businesses to reduce time to market for Industrial IoT applications by up to one year and cut development costs in half.

Smaller and lighter, mangOH Yellow is targeted at IoT applications where compactness and low-power consumption are essential. The size and mechanical design will allow developers to build standalone and extremely compact proof-of-concepts/prototypes or to incorporate it into existing systems for instant IoT connectivity.

Sierra Wireless founded the mangOH open source hardware community in 2015 to make it easy for developers to prototype with any wired, wireless, or sensor technology based on their unique IoT use case. mangOH platforms deliver 90% of the solution prototype out-of-the-box, enabling software developers to easily build reliable IoT solutions that hardware designers can customize to rapidly create Industrial IoT devices.

Sierra Wireless is an IoT pioneer, empowering businesses and industries to transform and thrive in the connected economy. It has more than 1,300 employees globally and operates R&D centers in North America, Europe and Asia. For more information, visit www.sierrawireless.com.
