Sierra Wireless Introduces Programmability To AirLink® Wireless Gateways To Accelerate And Simplify The Creation Of M2M Applications

Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ: SWIR) (TSX: SW) today announced the release of the ALEOS™ Application Framework, including an integrated development environment, feature-rich libraries, and a comprehensive set of tools that can be used to develop custom machine-to-machine (M2M) applications on top of the proven ALEOS embedded intelligence platform. The ALEOS Application Framework enables developers using AirLink® wireless gateways to integrate “intelligence on the edge” for more efficient, cost-effective deployment and operation of M2M solutions.

Initially available on the AirLink GX400 and GX440 gateways, the ALEOS Application Framework adds new programming capabilities to ALEOS, the intelligent embedded platform that enables setup, configuration, session persistence, and remote communications management for AirLink devices. Leveraging ALEOS as its foundation, the Application Framework allows third-party developers to take advantage of the inherent M2M capabilities of ALEOS and add their own proprietary applications. Furthermore, by integrating these applications with the Sierra Wireless AirVantage™ M2M Cloud Platform, developers can offer their customers true end-to-end M2M implementations.

The ability to run applications directly on the AirLink GX400/440 devices provides important cost and operational advantages for businesses. For example, the ALEOS Application Framework can eliminate the need to use an external unit to perform logic functions, resulting in fewer components to buy, deploy, integrate, and manage. Also, because the ALEOS Application Framework installs highly specialized intelligence into the AirLink GX devices, they can be programmed to sort and prioritize data before transmitting it. This kind of decision making at the edge of the solution can reduce network access costs.

“ALEOS has for over a decade set the standard for reliable, bullet-proof cellular communication. With the addition of programmability to ALEOS, customers can now add custom applications to their AirLink gateways, accelerating time-to-market for highly tailored M2M services,” said Emmanuel Walckenaer, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Solutions and Services for Sierra Wireless. “The cost savings of having intelligence on the edge opens up new opportunities for our partners and customers to create compelling M2M solutions.”
