Developers are already using the LimeSDR to develop apps with LTE, Bluetooth and LoRa, and future applications including IoT Gateway, 2G to 5G cellular Network in a box, drone command and control, utility meters, home automation and media streaming are anticipated by the team behind the LimeSDR.
The LimeSDR platform is a low cost application-enabled software defined radio (SDR) platform that can be programmed to support virtually any type of wireless standard. From Wi-Fi, ZigBee and Bluetooth through to cellular standards such as UMTS, LTE and GSM and to the emerging IoT communication protocols such as LoRa, the platform offers endless wireless connectivity opportunities.
Ebrahim Bushehri, CEO of Lime Micro said, “We are really excited about this App Store announcement with Snappy Ubuntu. Already we are seeing applications being posted in forums and this development goes a long way to ensure that wireless network and connectivity will be app enabled”
