Sierra Wireless have announced that mangOH™ Open Hardware for IoT won the GSMA’s Best Mobile Technology Breakthrough – Asia Award at Mobile World Congress Shanghai.
mangOH is the industry’s only open hardware purpose built for cellular, with industrial-grade components that can be used to manufacture connected products. From idea, to prototype, to production, mangOH reference designs provide industrial-grade sensor-to-cloud platforms for building wireless IoT solutions. Designs are published under a business-friendly open source license, which allows IoT developers to prototype and test ideas in days instead of months, with minimal investment. Just as the Mini Card standard simplified development for the laptop, tablet, and networking industry, mangOH provides plug and play hardware for IoT developers.
“We are truly honoured to receive this award, which recognizes our technology leadership in IoT and our continuous efforts to innovate,” said Philippe Guillemette, Chief Technology Officer at Sierra Wireless. “Project mangOH provides IoT developers with open source, ready-to-use, extensible hardware that also leverages our open source Legato™ software framework. Turning IoT concepts into reality is now at everyone’s fingertips, in a matter of weeks instead of months. We believe that using and creating open source technologies is mandatory for realizing IoT’s potential.”
“We extend our congratulations to all of the winners and nominees at our first Asia Mobile Awards here at Mobile World Congress Shanghai,” said Michael O’Hara, Chief Marketing Officer, GSMA. “The AMOs recognise everything from game-changing mobile devices and technologies to applications and services available in all Asian markets, but perhaps more importantly, they underscore the hugely positive impact of mobile communications for people, business and society. Many thanks to all of our entrants, judges, sponsors and partners for supporting the 2016 Asia Mobile Awards.”
