Intel and AT&T Dramatically Accelerate IoT Time to Market

Through the Intel LIQD Program, we will enable select OEMs and carriers to deliver smart and connected devices that businesses can deploy in weeks instead of months. Customers utilizing Intel LIQD devices will also be able to move from concept stage to large deployments without the engineering or technical burden of building a custom solution. The first OEM partner to launch a device as part of the Intel LIQD Program is Sonim Technologies*. The XPi device*2 is the first device from Sonim in this category of quick deployment, ultra-rugged industrial IoT devices. The commercial device comes with carrier pre-certification and a configurable set of embedded sensors, which can be securely managed remotely. The XPi is based on the Intel® Quark™ SE Microcontroller C1000, an Intel® XMM™ 7120 modem (Sierra Wireless HL Series module*), and offers users a scalable IoT sensor platform with Bluetooth Smart connectivity and the capability to access AT&T’s platform solutions (M2X). With these key building blocks, enterprises are able to deliver turn-key asset and condition monitoring applications for a variety of different usage scenarios with minimal engineering effort.
