Qualcomm launches new LTE IoT software development kit
Qualcomm Technologies has unveiled its new cellular connectivity internet of things (IoT) software development kit (SDK), designed to enable the deployment of large-scale connected IoT devices.
5G is set to revolutionise the world of IoT, enabling a whole range of new products aside from traditionally connected devices such as smartphones to access wireless technology. What Qualcomm’s SDK will do is provide a platform in which firms can develop new products that can harness the power of 5G.
“As a leader in wireless technology, Qualcomm Technologies is pleased to provide solutions that can help accelerate the development of a global Internet of Things,” said Serge Willenegger, Senior Vice President and General Manager, 4G/5G and Industrial IoT, Qualcomm Wireless.
“As a new element of Qualcomm Technologies’ wireless edge solutions, the LTE IoT SDK, combined with modules based on our MDM9206 LTE IoT chipset, is designed to help manufacturers and developers build and commercialise a wide range of exciting and innovative IoT applications in a cost-efficient and expedited manner.”
The SDK is expected to be available in the first half of this year, with demonstrations set to take place at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, held between 26 February – 1 March.
