Sierra Wireless Unveils Upgrades to AirPrime HL Series M2M Devices

By Oliver VanDervoort November 08, 2013

Sierra wireless is getting noticed as it becomes more involved in the machine-to-machine (M2M) market. Recently the company announced the launch of additions and improvements to its AirPrime HL Series of embedded wireless modules. These modules are geared to help M2M applications communicate and transmit data quicker and easier. These new AirPrime devices are being billed as the smallest embedded wireless modules on the market that are also interchangeable across 2G, 3G and 4G networks.

This interchangeability means that device manufacturers are able to easily deploy these devices across a number of different regions. The devices are also being billed as being “future proof” because the embedded receivers can actually be updated over the air. That means that should a 5G communications network come about in the next couple of years, these receivers will be ready.

Sierra Wireless has been taking a number of different steps to become a bigger player in the M2M market over the last year especially. Just last month, Sierra acquired several M2M assets from a company known as AnyDATA. These acquisitions allowed Sierra to broaden its full M2M suite. The company was also able to add a few more M2M assets that are geared specifically towards enterprise level companies.

“We know that integrating new technology is one of the key challenges our customers face in their M2M deployments and it can prevent customers from deploying or evolving to new technologies as quickly as they would like to,” Dan Schieler, senior vice president of OEM Solutions for Sierra Wireless, said in a recent statement announcing the upgrades to the AirPrime series. “The AirPrime HL Series meets that challenge head-on, providing a clear and simple 2G-to-4G migration path, the flexibility to swap modules as required, and effective, scalable firmware management for post-deployment upgrades. It’s an innovative solution to some of the most critical issues we see in M2M deployments across multiple industries.”
