Arduino at MWC 2019!

Arduino TeamFebruary 24th, 2019

The Arduino team is in Barcelona this week for Mobile World Congress! MWC is one of the biggest technology events in the world, so we’re really excited to be invited to participate in the Mobile IoT Experience’s developer expert zone by event organizers GSMA.

Come find us at Hall 4YFN Fira Montjuic Hall M8 Stand 9 — we’ll be showing how create an LTE Cat-M / NB-IoT connected sensor with the new MKR NB 1500. Arduino Senior Engineer Martino Facchin will also be giving the keynote talk on Monday, February 25th in the Training Zone.

Like all MKR boards, the MKR NB 1500 was designed with security in mind, so we’ll discuss how to use certificate-based authentication and TLS to secure data from your device (and make it easier!) via the Arduino IoT Cloud and other clouds like Microsoft Azure IoT Hub.

Arduino has helped millions innovate by making IoT technology simple — it started with makers and education, but Arduino is now also used by developers in hundreds of companies across the globe. We’ve been partnering with technology providers like Arm, as well as operators including Telstra, Telefonica, and Vodafone to make cellular IoT even more accessible. We want connecting and securing devices to be as straightforward as possible — so people can focus on making their IoT applications.
