STMicroelectronics has announced an agreement that will enable users of the STM32 microcontroller to use the cellular IoT connectivity and edge-to-cloud solutions from Sierra Wireless.
The agreement helps developers tackle the challenges of creating and deploying IoT solutions, including device design and development, enrollment with a cellular network, and connection to cloud services.
Various SIM options including global, Smart Multi-IMSI and enhanced regional single carrier offers, as well as a selection of turnkey cellular modems, simplify connection. The collaboration with ST provides access to a wide selection of Sierra Wireless’ connectivity systems and cloud software.
Pre-integrated with STM32Cube, the Octave cloud tool provides “Zero-touch” global connectivity, LPWA optimized communications and Edge to cloud security with Rest APIs and cloud connectors to collect telemetry.
“Sierra Wireless brings a rich portfolio of cellular connectivity and cloud-service solutions to the STM32 ecosystem that enable us, together, to provide a complete end-to-end solution for connected IoT,” said Ricardo de sa Earp, Group Vice President and General Manager of the Microcontrollers Division STMicroelectronics. “Our STM32 MCUs and ecosystem, combined with connectivity services and device-to-cloud software from Sierra, creates an offer of greater depth, capability, and useability than any other on the market today.”
“This collaboration with STMicroelectronics delivers customers a ready-to-use solution to solve the IoT deployment challenges they face, from provisioning custom hardware to configuring and connecting turnkey modules as quickly as they need,” said Jim Ryan, SVP of Partnerships, Marketing, and IoT Solutions, Sierra Wireless. “Sierra Wireless is bringing its world-class IoT connectivity solutions to the industry-leading STM32 ecosystem, so that customers developing a wide range of IoT solutions using STM32 MCUs will now be able to easily build solutions with cellular connectivity.”
