Prototyping platform for cellular IoT
The cellular support is LTE-M and NB-IoT. It also has GNSS support.
Short range support exists for Bluetooth low energy, Bluetooth mesh, 802.15.4-based protocols and NFC.
Thingy:91 has a broad selection of sensors for building your PoC. Thingy:91 connects to Nordic’s cloud system for test and evaluation, nRF Cloud.
Check out the regulatory nRF9160 Certifications to see in which regions the nRF9160 SiP has been certified for radiated operation. Its modem firmware is limited to operation in the bands that were certified at the time of production.
More information on network operator coverage can be found under the Get Started tab.
