There are lots of inventors, developers and makers who have an idea for an IoT solution, but don’t have a platform over which they can design prototypes and test ideas quickly and cost-effectively in an open source fashion. The mangOH open source hardware program was founded by Sierra Wireless to make it easier for IoT developers to create prototypes for wired, wireless or sensor technology based on their unique IoT use cases. It utilizes a platform that delivers up to 90 percent of the building blocks required for a prototype in an out-of-the-box fashion. mangOH is the first and only B2B open source cellular platform in the industry.
The mangOH Red platform was introduced to bring these powerful capabilities to the industrial IoT and maker community who required a feature-rich hardware platform with a small footprint and lower-power requirements than any other open-source platforms available. The mangOH Red platform fits the bill with its ‘smaller than a credit card’ footprint, allowing developers to create solutions for industrial IoT and other scenarios where access to reliable power sources may be an issue.
