Sierra Wireless Unveils Second Generation Of AirCard Mobile Hotspots For 4G LTE Networks

Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ: SWIR) (TSX: SW) today unveiled its newest family of AirCard® mobile hotspots for 4G LTE networks. Following on the success of the AirCard 754S, the new AirCard 760S, AirCard 762S, and AirCard 763S offer several feature enhancements, including an improved user interface, longer battery life, and expanded frequency band support across the product family, providing variants compatible with most common frequency band combinations around the world. The new mobile hotspots are expected to launch in select markets in North America, Australia, Asia, and Europe over the next couple of months.

“Our new generation of AirCard mobile hotspots has been built to make the user experience even better,” said Dan Schieler, Senior Vice President, Mobile Computing for Sierra Wireless. “We listened to customer feedback and have incorporated new and improved features to make our hotspots even easier to use and the fastest way to keep all your Wi-Fi-enabled devices connected while on the move. We are looking forward to several network launches for these devices in the coming months.”

The AirCard 76xS mobile hotspot product family supports up to 10 simultaneous Wi-Fi connections (1), providing ample support for a work team or family carrying multiple connected devices on a road trip. On a 4G LTE network it provides sufficient bandwidth to handle demanding applications like online gaming and streaming media.

Setup is quick and easy – there is no software to install, and device settings can be easily managed through a web browser. Once setup is complete, users can also connect devices with the push of a button – the Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) button can securely connect a device without requiring a keyboard or large screen.

Enhancing the user experience

Sierra Wireless AirCard mobile hotspots are known for their informative and user-friendly display screens, which provide all the device information needed to connect and monitor the hotspot network connection and battery life. The new AirCard 76xS product family expands this user interface with the addition of a navigation button that scrolls through additional screens, providing access to messages and alerts, firmware status, and more detailed device information directly from the device itself without logging in to the web interface. This saves users time and makes it easier to use the hotspot with devices that may not have a standard web browser, such as Wi-Fi-enabled cameras or mobile gaming devices.
