Sierra Wireless Accelerates Embedded M2M Application Development

By Anuradha Shukla February 15, 2011

Sierra Wireless has announced several new features of its platform for embedded machine-to-machine (M2M) application development, including a new third-party library, an integrated debugger, and a new user interface for remote device management.

Sierra Wireless AirPrime embedded modules can natively support a complete embedded application framework for rapid M2M application development. The company notes that its Sierra Wireless Embedded Application Framework can accelerate the application development process.

This acceleration allows device and system manufacturers to bring products to market faster and reduce development costs. According to a release, the Embedded Application Framework consists of an M2M-specific operating system (Open AT), a range of software libraries, and an integrated development environment.

AirPrime Management Services enables remote management of AirPrime wireless modules, which can be connected to the AirVantage Services Platform through the AirVantage Ready Agent.

Companies can leverage these capabilities and the seamless integration of hardware, software and services to simplify and accelerate the end-to-end development of M2M applications.

"The Sierra Wireless Embedded Application Framework is a truly powerful software environment, and a reference in the M2M industry,” said Ryu Koriyama, CEO of Aplix Corporation. “ We are very pleased to be able to provide our WirelessIDEA library to the community of M2M solution developers using Sierra Wireless products, enabling them to work in their programming language of choice and helping them reduce their time to market."

Sierra Wireless has also announced a new user interface for its AirPrime Management Services that enables manufacturers (or their service provider customers) to remotely monitor and upgrade AirPrime devices in the field through a Web portal, saving considerable operating costs.

"The installed base of wireless-enabled machines powered by the Open AT operating system now counts several million devices. Since the launch of Open AT ten years ago, a great ecosystem of creative embedded software developers has evolved,” said Didier Dutronc, senior vice president and general manager, M2M Embedded Solutions for Sierra Wireless. “We are delighted to welcome new members such as Aplix Corporation, in order to continue to facilitate and accelerate M2M application development."
