How to Speed up LTE-M Development Using the nRF9160 Feather
Proudly partnered with Circuit Dojo and Nordic Semiconductor
This webinar brings together speakers representing each part of the IoT development cycle for LTE-M specific projects. The webinar covers the most critical aspect to consider when developing a solution that leverages LTE-M. Along the way, you will be introduced to the Soracom network, the nRF9160 System-in-Package (SiP) from Nordic Semiconductor, and the LTE-M Feather development board by Circuit Dojo, which combines both along with NB-IoT functionality, additional hardware features, and helpful firmware tooling.
When is This Webinar?
This webinar will be live on Wednesday, January 12, 2022, at 2 pm EST/11 am PST.
To discuss the unique connectivity benefits and limitations of LTE-M we have Brenna Belletti from Soracom joining the webinar. Brenna will present from the perspective of a network provider. She will share what to consider when selecting a network provider, best practices when managing a deployment at scale, and examples of how Soracom is helping IoT innovators bring their vision to market. In addition, she will discuss the energy benefits of selecting LTE-M over other connectivity options and common use cases.
