Taking advantage of the media pull of CES 2017, the telephone company AT&T has announced two newbie IoT kits that will be compatible with Raspberry Pi and Amazon Web Services.
These starter kits will serve as a common thread for IoT newbies. In such a way that anyone can develop any IoT project with these kits without needing to know how to program or have knowledge of robotics.
The purpose of AT&T with these kits is to reach more public through the new phenomenon of the IoT. Thus, in the kit we will not only find free hardware that will be connected to Raspberry Pi but we will also find two prepaid sim cards with 300 Mb to carry out our personal projects.
The IoT platform will be key in the coming yearsThat is why AT&T has launched two kits dedicated to the most famous platforms in the sector. On the one hand, for Amazon Web Services, an Amazon service widely used by developers where it is not necessary to know how to program a certain language. That is why one of the starter kits is for this platform. The second kit is intended for the Raspberry Pi, the famous raspberry board.
AT&T wants to teach newbies about the possibilities of IoT
It goes without saying that within IoT projects, Raspberry Pi is king. These kits are made up of different elements, depending on the platform, which will help any newbie to get started and be able to use the services of At & T for these purposes. These kits will be launched throughout this year, possibly after the MWC in Barcelona, although the specific date is still unknown.
The AT&T telephone company is not the first to dedicate itself to this sector, but it is the first to create a specific kit to work with Raspberry Pi, something that speaks highly of the Raspberry Pi. Hopefully this company is not the last to work with the sector and European companies, including the Spanish launch similar products that are available to the general public.
