Cellular connectivity with resinOS 2.0, 3G dongles, and SORACOM SIM cards

The following is a guest post by Alexis Susset of SORACOM, an IoT communications platform.

Today we are setting up resin.io devices with a SORACOM SIM card and our preferred enterprise 3G Dongle, the Huawei MS2131.

With this setup complete, we'll be able to ship out devices that work anywhere in the world. Together with this tutorial, we're also publishing base code so that you can leverage SORACOM's Harvest service to keep track of your device performance.

The Raspberry Pi and other SBCs are the IBM PCs of our time. From educational project to industry disruptor.

It surprises some to learn that the Raspberry Pi has sold mode than 10 million units, becoming the third most popular general purpose computing platform, surpassing the Commodore64, and trailing only, as expected, the Mac and the PC. Some might take offense at the particular slicing and dicing required to formulate the record, others might comment on how far it is from #2. But they’d be missing the point.

Advanced Device Provisioning Workflow for Large Fleets: Preloading and Pre-provisioning

Let's imagine you have a factory where you are creating resin.io-enabled devices that need to function when they first boot up. Maybe your devices have to function even before they are able to connect to the Internet and download software. Or perhaps you are sending out SD cards for your customers to boot their devices, and you'd like those devices to show up on resin.io without any extra setup (so your customers could say, for example, "I see that the HQ Lobby signage machine just came online for the first time").
