Cellular IoT devices aim for out-of-the-box solutions

IoT platform-as-a-service company Particle has announced the launch of its new B Series hardware solutions to help companies move from prototype to production as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. Particle’s B Series family of devices is offered as providing product teams with everything they need to get started and deploy at scale, allowing engineers and developers to instead focus on innovative, customer-facing, value-add product development under one IoT Platform-as-a-Service.

The expansion follows the launch of Particle’s Supply Secure hardware portfolio, a new proactive program that updates and replaces legacy hardware with assured inventory that supply chain teams can confidently deliver to enterprise customers.

“Ready-to-connect hardware solutions over the past decade have presented an either/or equation,” says Adam Warmington, Sr. Product Manager of Devices. “They’re either easy-to-use and cheap development kits with software tools and resources designed only for non-scalable hobbyist projects, or they’re heavy-duty modules and gateways that lack the support to explore IoT and develop proofs-of-concept. Particle’s B Series hardware solutions give product managers, engineers or developers everything they need to evolve with their company’s IoT journey.”

The path to custom cellular IoT, says the company, is riddled with complexities that must account for carrier relationships, hardware certifications, connectivity diagnostics, connectivity management services, device-to-network integration and more. The company’s B Series is designed to provide easy-to-deploy-and-configure cellular solutions — including the Boron developer board and B SoM — to not only overcome these product development hurdles but also simplify the otherwise complex IoT journey faced when bringing products from exploration to scale.

Now, says the company, businesses can bring cellular connected products to market as quickly as possible on a single platform with all the necessary tools, resources, and software they need available out-of-the-box. Pre-orders for B Series components are currently open and shipping is estimated to begin in mid-October 2022.
