Added support for the WNC M14A2A Cellular LTE Data Module.

Dependencies:   WNC14A2AInterface

Easy Connect

Easily add all supported connectivity methods to your mbed OS project

This project is derived from It give user the ability to switch between connectivity methods and includes support for the WNC14A2A Data Module. The `NetworkInterface` API makes this easy, but you still need a mechanism for the user to select the connection method, The selection is made by modifying the `mbed_app.json` file and using `easy_connect()` from your application.

Specifying connectivity method

To add support for the WNC14A2A, add the following to your ``mbed_app.json`` file:


    "config": {
            "help": "options are ETHERNET,WIFI_ESP8266,WIFI_ODIN,MESH_LOWPAN_ND,MESH_THREAD,WNC14A2A",
            "value": "WNC14A2A"

After you choose `WNC14A2A` you'll also need to indicate if you want debug output or not by Enabling (true) or Disabling (false) WNC_DEBUG.

If WNC_DEBUG is enabled, there are 3 different levels of debug output (selected via bit settings). These debug levels are set using the following values:

1Basic WNC driver debug output
2Comprehensive WNC driver debug output
4Network Layer debug output

You can have any combination of these three bit values for a total value of 0 – 7.

WNC Debug Settings

    "config": {
        "WNC_DEBUG": {
            "value": false
        "WNC_DEBUG_SETTING": {
            "value": 4

Using Easy Connect from your application

Easy Connect has just one function which will either return a `NetworkInterface`-pointer or `NULL`:

Sample Code

#include "easy-connect.h"

int main(int, char**) {
    NetworkInterface* network = easy_connect(true); /* has 1 argument, enable_logging (pass in true to log to serial port) */
    if (!network) {
        printf("Connecting to the network failed... See serial output.\r\n");
        return 1;
    // Rest of your program

Tested on

  • K64F with Ethernet.
  • AT&T Cellular IoT Starter Kit with WNC M14A2A Cellular Data Module

The WNCInterface class currently supports the following version(s):

  • MPSS: M14A2A_v11.50.164451 APSS: M14A2A_v11.53.164451
