Sierra Wireless Expands Options For 3G In M2M With New AirPrime™ Q2698 Embedded Module

Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ: SWIR) (TSX: SW) today announced a new and important addition to its AirPrime™ Q Series of embedded wireless modules. The AirPrime Q2698 adds support for 3G HSPA+ on five frequency bands to the popular AirPrime Q Series, along with support for 2G GSM/GPRS/EDGE on four frequency bands, making it compatible with networks worldwide and therefore ideal for global deployments. The Q2698 is also programmable, enabling the development of embedded M2M applications with the Sierra Wireless Open AT® Application Framework. This means that customers already using AirPrime Q series modules can seamlessly migrate from 2G to 3G, using the same hardware platform design and embedded applications they had developed for earlier products.

“Sierra Wireless is continuing to innovate and is excited to introduce the new AirPrime Q2698 module to this industry-proven Q Series product line,” said Didier Dutronc, Senior Vice President, M2M Embedded Solutions for Sierra Wireless. “The AirPrime Q2698 is designed for customers seeking an M2M embedded module that can provide 3G cellular network connectivity in any international location. Because it also offers the Open AT Application Framework, embedded applications using the new AirPrime Q2698 module can be customized to meet business-specific M2M service needs.”

With a seven year track record and millions of units already deployed in the field, the popular AirPrime Q Series matches the requirements of machine-to-machine (M2M) applications for durability and longevity. The AirPrime Q2698, which will begin shipping in the second half of 2012, can be used in a wide variety of fixed or mobile M2M deployments in segments such as industrial, energy, sales and payment, transportation, or healthcare. It provides network access nearly anywhere in the world, including Australia, North America, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Latin America, China, and Japan. The AirPrime Q2698 module includes GPS technology, which is essential to fleet management, asset tracking, and other location-based applications. It also features best-in-class analog and digital audio capabilities and a large set of interfaces to ease integration.
