The Arduino PRO Portenta family levels up with its newest addition: the Portenta Cat. M1/NB IoT GNSS Shield, ready to extend the capabilities of Portenta and MKR boards with cellular communication and positioning.
Designed with Thales, a world-leading company in trusted IoT connectivity, the Portenta Cat. M1/NB IoT GNSS Shield leverages a Cinterion TX62 wireless IoT module built for highly efficient, low-power IoT applications to deliver optimized communication bandwidth and performance. The new shield further amplifies the opportunities that Arduino clients can seize in the fast-evolving Industry 4.0 and edge computing scenario, with state-of-the-art security, reliability and low power consumption.
As it can seamlessly interface with the Portenta H7 module, thus benefiting from its strong edge computing power, the Portenta Cat. M1/NB IoT GNSS Shield is the ideal solution for the development of positioning, tracking and remote monitoring applications in industrial settings as well as in agriculture, public utilities and smart cities.
Thales & Arduino will host a joined Launch Webinar with an in-depth look at the Portenta Cat. M1/NB IoT GNSS Shield on February 23, 2022, 9 a.m., and 5 p.m. CET.
