Come and join us on Thursday February 14th for a technical webinar covering Pelion Device Management. We will be introducing and demonstrating how device management can accelerate IoT deployment, enabling businesses to capture, keep, and utilize IoT data with peace of mind and drive operational efficiency.
In a world where everything is connected, security is not optional. To protect LoRaWAN devices, Arm, Microchip Technology and The Things Industries today released a pre-provisioned secure element. The secure element contains a secure identity, root keys compatible with LoRaWan 1.0.x and 1.1, and a crypto accelerator. The Mbed OS LoRaWAN stack can use the secure element to automatically offload all cryptographic operations, so your keys will never be visible nor accessible, even when your device might be compromised.
On January 28, 2019 the Bluetooth low energy Cordio Link and Cordio Stack solutions from Arm achieved day 1 qualification of the recently released Bluetooth Core v5.1 specification. The Cordio v5.1 Stack and Cordio v5.1 Link are available today to early access partners.
For the past few years, the Mbed community in Japan is organizing 'Mbed Fest', a quarterly celebration for the community that highlights local partners, companies and individuals using Mbed. I attended the Mbed Fest Japan in Tokyo on the 27th of October 2018, which inspired me to arrange a similar event in Korea. And so, the first Mbed Fest Korea was held successfully on the 29th of December 2018. With the event being held on one the coldest days of the year, and being so close to the event of the year it was a fantastic surprise to see so many people show up.
First of all, happy new year from the Mbed team!
IoT devices without an internet connection are, well, just devices. But getting connectivity everywhere can be problematic. WiFi and Bluetooth only work at a short range, and 4G requires expensive radios and lots of power. In the past years we have seen the advent of Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWANs), which offer a huge range while consuming very little power. Two such networks are the telco-backed LTE Cat-M1 and NB-IoT, and 2018 saw the first commercial roll-outs of these networks.
Has your company created a product based on Mbed OS? Then we’d love to chat!
Whenever we get the chance to talk to you about an Mbed OS based product you’ve built, it seems to unearth a whole variety of opportunities for both of us. Whether it is to see how we can give you some additional support, get feedback on how we could improve Mbed itself, or to help showcase your products to the companies we meet that are looking for devices and solutions, it seems good things happen.
To uncover these opportunities more reliably, we’ve now put up a simple form where you can tell us about your product. I’ll be reviewing this every week, and it would be great to hear from you about what you’ve been building to see how we can help.
Here is a bit more on what telling us about your designs can lead to:
