“Explore Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) radio networks in a comfortable, user-friendly way utilizing the Espruino Pixl.js and Quectel BG96.
In this project, two extremely powerful components come together:
The Quectel BG96 module module on the NB-IoT Shield provides multi-band support, so it can be used in many different radio networks all around the world. The NB-IoT Shield provides direct access to the serial interface of the BG96 module, so you also can try things out using a FTDI cable, which can be useful if you want to do firmware updates. The BG96 module provides a wide range of AT commands for a lot of purposes, and even provides high-level protocol implementations like HTTPS and MQTT, which can be very useful for IoT applications. Additionally, it provides geo-positioning by its embedded GNSS chip.”
