PYCOM FiPy - LoRa Sigfox LTE

Imagine 5 networks in one perfectly-formed, same-small-foot-print-as-WiPy- LoPy-and SiPy, IoT development board. MicroPython enabled. FiPy includes WiFi, Bluetooth, LoRa, Sigfox and dual LTE-M (CAT M1 and NBIoT) the FiPy gives access to all the world’s LPWAN networks on one tiny board.
Get on with a board that gives you full flexibility during testing, install, deployment and even later when you want to switch real-time your airtime network provider. You can switch when the time is right for you or set some parameters that will do so automatically.

Note: The LTE Antenna MUST always be used with LTE CAT M1 / NB1, or it could cause serious damage to the development board.
