Linkwave to explore Sierra Wireless applications at UK conference


On the 27th and 28th April 2016, Linkwave Technologies will be joined by Sierra Wireless at the annual UK Device Developers’ Conference and inaugural H/W Expo – a free, combined two-day event for software and systems engineers and hardware developers.

Together they will demonstrate new, exciting Sierra Wireless products and applications alongside a workshop which will provide an introduction to building, developing, debugging and installing simple applications on a Sierra Wireless WP Series embedded module, using the Linux-based Legato platform.

 “We believe that Sierra Wireless’s Legato platform, running on the WP range of modules, offers a powerful and versatile platform for IoT applications,” said Andrew Newton, Managing Director at Linkwave Technologies.

“The close integration of application and communication functional blocks, together with a rich, well featured programming environment, provides an excellent starting point for small, low power, highly capable devices.”

Attendees will also have the opportunity to see a presentation by Sierra Wireless, which will cover Project mangOH™ — a new category of open source hardware platforms for the Internet-of-Things (IoT).

Thibault Cantegrel, Director, Developer Program at Sierra Wireless, said: “This presentation will highlight the technical concepts of both the MangOH hardware and Linux-based Legato software which make mangOH a great development platform for IoT products.

“In addition to the presentation, the hands-on workshop will allow developers attending the session to experience the development and prototyping of an end-to-end sensor-to-cloud IoT application.”

The event will also coincide with the launch of the Linkwave PiloT – a 3G/HSPA communications HAT for the Raspberry Pi.
