Develop an IoT device with the power of T-Mobile’s network.

IoT Developer Kit

Get your IoT concept ready for the T-Mobile network quickly with the DevEdge IoT Developer Kit, which also features a complete software development kit (SDK) for fast cloud services integration. We’re making it easy for developers to focus on your specific applications, connect to our network, and certify IoT devices for launch.

Our IoT Developer Kit uses LTE CAT-M, a leading LPWA network technology for Internet of Things applications offering a connection speed of up to 375 Kbps. It can connect resource-constrained devices to the internet and transmit small amounts of data over long periods of time, while providing high signal penetration and maintaining minimal power consumption. Out of the box, you can see the device’s data over our cellular network without additional coding.

How the T-Mobile DevEdge IoT Developer Kit stands out among competitor kits:

Easy to use: When you turn it on, you’re automatically connected to the T-Mobile network through a SIM card preloaded with 500MB of data.
Simple debugging: We provide an integrated debugging interface into the hardware—there will be no need to purchase additional debugging hardware.
Open software and hardware: You can freely use our software and hardware designs to develop your own product, no licensing or copyright permissions required.
Flexible design capabilities: Our kit provides superior hardware and software flexibility by using a separate processor from the modems as well as an adaptable SDK and software architecture.
Bluetooth and Wi-Fi enabled: To support more use cases, we’ve included the ability to leverage Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for communication.

Companion app capabilities
  • Your IoT Developer Kit is ready to power up right out of the box. Track its performance and other insights through the web and mobile companion apps. Once downloaded, you will be able to connect to your device via Bluetooth and check its power status, temperature, pressure, and see how strong your connection is to T- Mobile’s cellular service. You can also toggle the buzzer and LEDs, see accelerometer readings in real-time, confirm the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) is working and view the device on a map, and much more.
Our partnership with Zephyr
  • We built our open-source SDK on top of Zephyr’s modular, scalable, real-time operating system to support resource-constrained environments where Linux might be too big. Zephyr, built with security in mind, enables vast development flexibility. It supports multiple architectures including ARC, ARM, RISC-V and X86; you can easily tailor an optimal solution to meet your needs. Zephyr OS is used in a wide array of applications from simple connected sensors to complex edge systems.

Add APIs to your developer kit.

Every IoT Developer Kit comes with our Device Management API, and you can also select additional APIs during checkout to enhance the capabilities of your device.

SMS Notification API

Send an SMS signal to your device with specific commands or to wake up the device for some pre-defined action (limited to the MSISDN associated with the device SIM.

View documentation

Location API

Access the course location of your device that is active on the network and associated with your account.

View documentation

Device Notification API

COMING SOON: Receive notifications of changes to key identifiers or statuses of the device, such as successful registration to the network, IMEI/IMSI changes, and more.

Let’s create something amazing together.

IoT Developer Kit use cases: Imagine the possibilities.

Our IoT Developer Kit enables you with a variety of capabilities right out of the box. Here are just a few ideas to get you started whether you want to test it out “as is” or add more sensors or other hardware to realize your concept. There are infinite other ideas you could explore.

Out of the box


Reach customers by triggering pre-programmed actions when a mobile device enters or exits a pre-defined location.

Asset management

Gain more visibility and control of your inventory to simplify tracking and pulling items while saving time and money.

Location tracking

Track persons or objects within buildings or out in the field to improve efficiency and reduce costs.

Age-in-place monitoring

Support or enhance activities of daily living, personal health or safety, mobility, communication, and physical activity.

Bring your own sensors

Water leaks

Reach customers by triggering pre-programmed actions when a mobile device enters or exits a pre-defined location. Set up a notification system that alerts you of water leaks at one or multiple pre-defined locations.

Air quality monitoring

Track air quality in real time in multiple environments to make informed safety decisions for workers and your community.

Control power on/off

Remotely control the power of systems across your business either in real time or at pre-defined times.

Humidity monitoring

Ensure safe humidity levels in various environments to achieve optimal health, efficiency, and/or compliance.
