AT&T and Bug Labs today announced plans to launch BUG + 3G/GSM, a plug-and-play electronic tool kit that puts network ready wireless modules in the hands of emerging device product developers.
The BUG platform accessible through AT&T Emerging Devices, offers a new approach to device innovation, providing developers with easy access to a full complement of FCC and AT&T certified 3G wireless modules, reducing the need for extended and costly testing and certification during the initial deployment phase.
In addition to unprecedented hardware configurability, developers can collect, share and control the data coming from networked BUGs using the new BUGswarm web application, now fully integrated with the AT&T Control Center, powered by Jasper Wireless.
“With Bug Labs, developers now have the ability to test and trial their products in the sandbox while they are in the nascent stages of development,” said Glenn Lurie, president of emerging devices, resale and partnerships, AT&T. “As part of our ongoing commitment to innovation, we’re eliminating the certification barriers that have kept some developers from jumping into the game. We’re encouraging product developers to bring the next generation of new and exciting products to market as soon as possible.”
