The Electron kit also includes Particle's development tools and access to a cloud platform for managing and updating your new connected hardware.
GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz for use in all regions of the World.
Please note that the Electron is a GSM-only device, and does not support CDMA networks. Many global carriers are planning to sunset their 2G networks beginning as soon as late 2016 and early 2017, so please confirm continued 2G service with your local carrier. We recommend 3G Electrons for anyone concerned about long-term cellular support in their home country. 2G Electrons will not work in Japan, where 2G networks have already been discontinued.
