Tencent Cloud, STMicroelectronics Partner on LoRaWAN IoT Platform in China

Tencent Cloud, the Internet of Things (IoT) division of Tencent Group, and global semiconductor firm STMicroelectronics have announced their cooperation on Tencent's latest IoT operation system, known as TencentOS Tiny LoRaWAN. With the platform running on the STM32 LoRaWAN software expansion package, the companies report, this partnership is intended to simplify access to Tencent Cloud's IoT Explorer platform.

TencentOS Tiny is an open-source IoT-embedded operation system. To simplify LoRaWAN migration and accelerate time-to-market for Chinese IoT developers, Tencent has expanded the TencentOS Tiny family and unveiled TencentOS Tiny LoRaWAN. The solution is available first in ST's STM32 LoRaWAN software expansion package, which contains STM32 microcontroller software and the latest Firmware Update Over The Air (FUOTA) specifications. The collaboration between Tencent and ST will allow developers to create LoRaWAN and FUOTA nodes based on STM32 products, and to securely access all the needed software components validated by IoT Explorer.

"As a market leader in 32-bit MCUs with a powerful ecosystem and IoT-related infrastructure, the STM32 is a natural first choice for the anchor platform for Tencent's IoT OS," said Arnaud Julienne, ST's VP and head of marketing and applications of MDG, in a prepared statement. "Combining Tencent's leading IoT platform with ST's strong LoRaWAN solutions and support of robust STM32 ecosystem assures best-in-class experience to Chinese IoT developers and customers."

"ST is the most influential MCU product partner in Tencent Cloud IoT solutions. We will work closely to serve the IoT industry, jointly expand the business ecosystem, and build the industrial IoT New situation," said Yachen Wang, Tencent Cloud's general manager, in the prepared statement. According to the companies, TencentOS Tiny LoRaWAN is available now.
