mangOH Open Source platform launched by Sierra Wireless to accelerate industrial IoT, expands mangOH ecosystem

Ashish Syal of Sierra Wireless

Sierra Wirelessa provider of integrated device-to-cloud solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), has released alpha samples of its next-generation mangOH® open source hardware platform.

The company is also inviting the IoT developer community to influence the final product. mangOH Yellow, a “super sensor” for connected IoT, allows developers to measure and monitor virtually anything, with all of the interoperable building blocks needed to rapidly develop and productise low-power Industrial IoT applications.

The award-winning mangOH platform helps developers address many of the challenges that limit their ability to quickly and cost-effectively bring connected cellular LPWA (Cat-M1/LTE-M and NB-IoT) and 2G/3G/4G products to market. mangOH’s open source model, industrial-grade components and extensive ecosystem enable businesses to reduce time to market for Industrial IoT applications by up to one year and cut development costs in half.

“Whether you’re developing IoT applications for a startup or a Fortune 500 company, mangOH gives you a head start to a minimum viable product, right out of the box,” said Ashish Syal, chief engineer and mangOH founder, Sierra Wireless. “Building on the success of mangOH Red and Green, we’re excited to release mangOH Yellow and give the IoT developer community the opportunity to influence the final product.”

Smaller and lighter, mangOH Yellow is targeted at IoT applications where compactness and low-power consumption are essential. The size and mechanical design will allow developers to build standalone and extremely compact proof-of-concepts/prototypes or to incorporate it into existing systems for instant IoT connectivity.

Existing mangOH Red and Green and applications developed using the Legato™ open source Linux platform can be easily ported to mangOH Yellow. In addition to cellular connectivity, mangOH Yellow features built-in Bluetooth Mesh and BLE 5, as well as Wi-Fi and NFC.

It also includes 14 advanced sensors and actuators on board in an ultra-low-power architecture for long-lasting, mobile, battery-powered applications. mangOH Yellow provides ultimate flexibility and functionality with an IoT connector slot to leverage the more than 15 IoT cards built by members of the collaborative mangOH ecosystem, which are available today.

Sierra Wireless also announced that Jabil, a provider of design, manufacturing, supply chain and product management services, has joined the extensive mangOH ecosystem. Jabil is the lead manufacturing partner for mangOH Red and the next-generation mangOH Yellow.

“mangOH is creating a disruptive opportunity in the IoT space for companies to innovate, and Jabil is pleased to join the ecosystem to help mangOH users cost-effectively take their prototypes to market,” said Rafael Renno, senior business unit director, Jabil. “We’re not only manufacturing mangOH, we’re also working with several large customers to develop new industrial use cases based on mangOH Red that will revolutionise industries.”
