  • Hi Shawn. I think there is another technology that’s gaining popularity and didnt make your list. Have you heard of RPMA (Random Phase Multiple Access)? Ingenu ( formerly onramp wireless I think ) is the sole provider of this proprietary technology which boasts very large coverage areas and ultra low power consumption. They even claim the client device can be some distance underground. They seem to be in direct competition with Sigfox and have similar data rates and narrow band transmission. I’d be interested to hear your opinion on this technology. As a maker I’m not fond of the business model (its hard to get hardware out of them unless you have a legitimate large scale business proposition or are an academic researcher ) but from what I can gather the technology itself is interesting.

  • I have two “Thing” boards that are configured with AT firmware. I’m guessing the Sparkfun ESP8266 AT library for this shield should also work for me. I was able to wire up TXO and RXI and get the Shield Demo sketch working but posting to Phant hasn’t worked yet. Perhaps my trouble is not related to the library but to some http configuration? Has anyone successfully posted to Phant? Any pointers? I have double checked my public and private key values and I know they are correct. Thanks!

  • +1 on Dragon88’s 2G cellular comment. Are you guys working on something in 4G? or at least 3G?

No public wish lists :(
