IoT Made Easy with RAKwireless and Ubidots

Ubidots and RAKwireless are pleased to announce their official partnership, combining world-class hardware and software so you can easily prototype and launch your next IoT solution.

RAK's mission is to make IoT easy by turning complex LPWAN products into simple technology solutions. Through this simplicity, RAK creates effective outcomes that are tailored for each client and individual developers.

When it comes to building rapid IoT prototypes, a breadboard full of tangled cables might sound familiar. Available dev kits can help solve this, but they are usually expensive and designed for single-device use cases. With WisBlock, a new concept for rapid yet scalable hardware development is born. Simply plug the desired sensor shields and be ready to launch and scale a commercial-grade solution in no time.

Need to scale to thousands of units? No problem, RAK’s team is there to adapt their reference designs and ensure they meet your expected feature-set, and price-point.

“RAK hardware suite is not only helping our customers go faster to market. It is also helping us demonstrate the power of LoRaWAN and Ubidots in less time. And of course, we’re proud users of WisBlock sensors around the office! They’ve been running  on batteries for months, and still going strong, sending data to Ubidots” - said Agustin Pelaez, Ubidots CEO and Co-founder

IoT devices typically take a significant amount of time to build, and even then, it may not result in a successful deployment. With RAK and Ubidots you’ll be able to assemble and launch beautiful,  white-labeled dashboards to clients in any industry - just like this one:

"Ubidots complements our philosophy of making IoT easy. Starting at the application layer, Ubidots IoT Platform allows our customers to create fully customized end-user applications with just a couple of clicks and in a matter of minutes. We truly believe this strategic partnership will enable hundreds of opportunities for IoT entrepreneurs to take their projects to a large scale in record time and simultaneously in an affordable and secure way from the hardware layer to the application layer." - said Ken Yu, RAKwireless CEO

Today, we’re kicking off this partnership with carefully-crafted content for those of you current and would-be RAK hardware fans. But this is just the beginning; we’re already working on more seamless integrations between RAK, Ubidots, and the LoRaWAN ecosystem, so stay tuned for more!
