FiPy - Five Network Development Board with LTE-M, LoRa, Sigfox, WiFi & Bluetooth
Product Images shown are for illustrative purposes only and may differ from the actual Product. Due to differences in PCB manufacturers, colours, pin mappings, markings & packaging of products/PCBs may also differ from those shown above.
Note: The LTE Antenna MUST always be used with LTE CAT M1 / NB1, or it could cause serious damage to the development board.

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.

The FiPy has a built-in operating system that supports MicroPython, the lightweight cousin of the Python web programming language. You can use this board as is, or develop your application, then minimize the design with one of the smaller and simpler Pycom boards (if, say, you realize you don't need SigFox or Cellular).
