Sierra Wireless Extends 4G Leadership With Introduction Of Second Generation Of LTE Embedded Modules

Stocks in this article: SWIR

Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ: SWIR) (TSX: SW) today introduced its second generation of 4G LTE AirPrime™ embedded wireless modules for notebooks, ultraportable notebooks, and tablets. The six new additions to the AirPrime EM Series and MC Series support 4G LTE networks worldwide and are compatible with the Windows® 8 operating system.

Sierra Wireless first launched embedded modules for LTE networks nearly two years ago, at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show. Since then, the company has delivered LTE-enabled products on networks around the world, shipping over 2 million LTE products to date. Sales of AirPrime embedded modules to notebook and tablet manufacturers have enjoyed strong growth in 2012, up 66 percent in the first three quarters of the year, compared to the same period in 2011.

“This new lineup of embedded wireless modules offers notebook and tablet manufacturers a leading edge connectivity solution for a wide range of devices, with expanded support for both LTE networks and Windows 8 packaged into some of the thinnest modules we’ve ever produced,” said Dan Schieler, Senior Vice President, Mobile Computing for Sierra Wireless. “The continued deployment of LTE networks and the launch of Windows 8 have driven solid growth in our sales to device manufacturers this year, and our expansion of the product line demonstrates our continued commitment to this key market.”

All of the new MC and EM Series modules are optimized for low power consumption, to enable longer battery life in their host devices. In addition, all of them are compatible with 2G and 3G network technologies for use in areas where LTE is not yet available.

Multi-operator support on LTE networks provides manufacturers with an efficient solution for inventory management. With each module covering multiple LTE network operators within its targeted geographic region, manufacturers can address markets worldwide with fewer variants. End customers also have the flexibility to select and change their network service provider without having to purchase a new device.
