Swarm – Space Based IoT Connectivity has a Dev Kit Now

Now this is interesting. Was reminded about it on the IoT Podcast this morning.

From IEEE:

Swarm, a satellite start-up that uses CubeSats about the size of a grilled cheese sandwich to provide IoT coverage, has instead developed a satellite network specifically for IoT networks that would otherwise struggle to connect to the Internet. To do so, the company has adapted the popular IoT wireless technology LoRa, turning it into a high-flying—and even longer-ranging—solution.

And now there is a developer kit! Will have to look closer at that 🙂
