Avnet’s AT&T Cellular IoT Starter Kit enables designers to easily develop and prototype cellular connected IoT devices utilizing AT&T’s 4G LTE network. The kit includes all the elements required to collect sensor data, connect to the AT&T network, and utilize various cloud services for the management, storage, and analytics of a connected IoT device.
The Starter Kit features a two board solution comprised of a microcontroller-based carrier board and a pluggable, cellular connectivity daughter card. NXP’s Freedom FRDM-K64F microcontroller carrier board acts as the main host processor, providing an Arduino™ compatible R3 expansion slot. The Avnet created 4G LTE cellular shield plugs into the Arduino R3 slot, forming a small 3.25” x 2” x 1” two board “sandwich”.
Application development is supported by AT&T’s M2X Data Services and Flow Designer, which provides a scalable, reliable and highly secure environment for IoT-focused solutions. Additional cloud services from industry partners are also available. The hardware platform is enabled for ARM® mbed™, allowing for development in a cloud-based environment, or in a locally supported environment through either the Open Source SDA or JTAG connection to the baseboard.
