Sierra Wireless launches 4G LTE AirLink™ Intelligent Gateway

Sierra Wireless has announced that the AirLink™ GX440 4G LTE rugged wireless gateway has received certification to operate on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network.

The Sierra Wireless AirLink GX440 delivers the higher bandwidth required by applications including high-quality wireless video surveillance, multi-data-stream wireless connections to branch locations, or mobile office applications for public safety and field service activities.

The AirLink GX440 marks a significant milestone for Sierra Wireless, as it represents a major network evolution for the latest device platform in the AirLink product family. Launched in early 2011, the AirLink GX Series brought a combination of features to the AirLink line, providing a five-fold increase in processor performance, increased ruggedness, hosted remote management capabilities with AirLink Management Services, and an expansion slot for hardware feature enhancements such as additional physical interfaces and wireless local and personal area networking and communications.

Flexible and powerful enough to meet the needs of a wide range of applications in the transportation, industrial machine-to-machine (M2M) and enterprise markets, the Sierra Wireless AirLink GX Series makes solution deployment faster, easier and less expensive for mobile network operators, OEMs, application service providers and end customers. With the AirLink GX Series, system integrators can standardize on a single gateway platform to serve the needs of all of their customers.

“The certification of the AirLink GX440 on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network is a plus for our M2M customers,” said Emmanuel Walckenaer, senior vice president, Solutions and Services, Sierra Wireless. “The extremely versatile and rugged AirLink GX440 gateway, when combined with the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network, will enable our customers to deploy M2M solutions that can scale as their applications and use cases evolve.”

“Verizon Wireless is on the cutting edge when it comes to working with top-level technology companies,” said Janet Schijns, vice president, Global Industry Solutions and Channels, Verizon Enterprise Solutions. “The Sierra Wireless AirLink GX440 will enable enterprise and government customers to deploy 4G LTE solutions such as digital signage, video monitoring, and remote offices in areas where extreme environmental conditions exist.”
