Sierra Wireless Bundles Cellular Connectivity with its Advanced Routers to Simplify IoT Deployment
Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ: SWIR) (TSX: SW), the world's leading IoT solutions provider, today announced the availability of its Ready-to-Connect function for its AirLink (News - Alert) routers within the European markets, making it easy for customers to streamline business operations and manage and activate connectivity worldwide.
The Ready-to-Connect compatible AirLink routers offer simplified operations for commercial and business-critical applications, as well as optional seamless connectivity. They are pre-configured to provide Smart Connectivity for AirLink including device management and support, allowing faster and more successful deployment for enterprise applications. The new Ready-to-Connect capability delivers all of the key elements needed - an integrated SIM pre-configured to Sierra Wireless' (News - Alert) Smart Connectivity offer, a centralized cloud platform for both device and connectivity management, and simplified operations-in one integrated IoT bundle.
"Sierra brought the right set of technologies to the table: a robust router; a good management platform; and Smart Connectivity for AirLink which enabled us to access the best available cellular network regardless of what part of the world the store was located in," said Bertrand Degien, Co-Founder and General Manager, Digitalli. "The combination of both hardware and connectivity made it easy for Digitalli to provide best-in-class digital signage solutions in stores where the internet was not available. Having a single platform to remotely activate and manage both the hardware and connectivity component makes our implementation significantly easier. Being able to manage the devices, cellular subscription and billing from a single platform is a huge efficiency gain, and means we can avoid the logistical nightmare of having to place multiple orders with different vendors."
"Sierra Wireless' Compatible Ready-to-Connect series of routers with their built-in security and Smart Connectivity for AirLink are fully-integrated both simplifying operations and reducing operating costs," said Marc Overton, CSO and SVP of EMEA and APAC, Sierra Wireless. "Our secure and intelligent range of AirLink Ready-to-Connect devices allow both big and small businesses to easily set up wireless communications systems and ensure they always have the best connection available based on bandwidth, latency and signal strength from a single, trusted partner."
The AirLink compatible Ready-to-Connect series of routers are currently available with full self-service onboarding capabilities in EMEA from Sierra Wireless' network of partners, with availability launching in North America in the near future.
