Sierra Wireless Powers LTE Connectivity For Toshiba’s New Detachable Ultrabook™

Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ: SWIR) (TSX: SW) today announced its AirPrime® EM7305 embedded wireless module has been selected and integrated into the Toshiba Portégé Z10t – a high-performance, Windows 8, compact Ultrabook that is equipped with a removable “tablet screen” for the utmost convenience in portable computing. The Toshiba Portégé Z10t with AirPrime EM7305 launched in June on the Telstra network in Australia.

The ultra-thin form factor of the AirPrime EM7305 module is ideally suited for compact devices, and the module is capable of delivering up to 100 Mbps download speeds and 50 Mbps upload speeds over LTE networks. Optimized for low power consumption to extend battery life during wireless operation, the AirPrime EM73xx series of modules from Sierra Wireless offers multi-operator LTE support with sets of frequency bands for specific regions – one for North America, one for EMEA and Australia, and one for Japan – and is compatible with 2G and 3G network technologies for use in areas where LTE is not yet available. The EM73xx series is part of the second generation of LTE embedded wireless modules from Sierra Wireless. The company first launched LTE modules in 2011 and has shipped over 2 million LTE devices to date.

“The Toshiba Portégé Z10t is exciting because it is a unique device that merges the best of tablets and notebooks to offer true flexibility and allows people to carry only one device,” said Rob Wilkinson, General Manager for Toshiba Information Systems Australia. “The integration of 4G LTE connectivity with the AirPrime module from Sierra Wireless increases its appeal, making it even more versatile and useful for both business and personal needs.”

The AirPrime EM7305 is built to the PCI Express M.2 module standard and also includes enhanced location capabilities, while providing support for Windows 8, Windows 7 and Linux.

“When we set out to offer the thinnest and most capable Windows 8 compatible wireless modules for tablets and ultra-portable notebooks, it was with devices like the Toshiba Portégé Z10t tablet in mind,” said Dan Schieler, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales for Sierra Wireless. “It’s very rewarding to see this module integrated in a Toshiba device that delivers such flexibility and innovation for customers.”
