IoT development platform connects through 5 different networks

November 23, 2016 // By Julien Happich
The FiPy multi-network IoT platform just launched on Kickstarter by Dutch startup Pycom is what the company describes as its most comprehensive solution, unifying LTE with other proprietary or unlicensed LPWA technologies into a single, five-network IoT connectivity solution.

With a 55x20x3.5mm footprint, and designed to operate in the -40 to +85ºC temperature range, FiPy is programmable with MicroPython. It features the ESP32 (WiFi and Bluetooth) and three additional networks, LoRa, Sigfox and LTE-M (based on Sequans’ Monarch LTE Cat M1/NB1 chip), offering an open source firmware playground with lots of supporting technology such as the Pymakr IDE, the Pymate mobile app, Pysense and Pytrack application boards and a free middleware platform that will be available in April 2017.
