Sierra Wireless announced this week that mangOH Open Hardware for IoT won the GSMA’s Best Mobile Technology Breakthrough – Asia Award at Mobile World Congress Shanghai.
According to details shared with MMW, mangOH is the industry’s “only open hardware purpose built for cellular, with industrial-grade components that can be used to manufacture connected products.”
From idea, to prototype, to production, mangOH reference designs provide industrial-grade sensor-to-cloud platforms for building wireless IoT solutions. Designs are published under a business-friendly open source license, which allows IoT developers to prototype and test ideas in days instead of months, with minimal investment.
“We are truly honored to receive this award, which recognizes our technology leadership in IoT and our continuous efforts to innovate,” said Philippe Guillemette, Chief Technology Officer at Sierra Wireless. “Project mangOH provides IoT developers with open source, ready-to-use, extensible hardware that also leverages our open source Legato™ software framework. Turning IoT concepts into reality is now at everyone’s fingertips, in a matter of weeks instead of months. We believe that using and creating open source technologies is mandatory for realizing IoT’s potential.”
