Sierra Wireless launches compact 3G wireless gateway for industry, enterprise, and transport

Vancouver, CanadaSierra Wireless has announced the launch of the AirLink® LS300 intelligent gateway, the all-in-one successor to the AirLink Raven line of rugged gateways.

AirLink Raven, Raven X, and Raven XE gateways have been successfully integrated into a wide variety of M2M deployments, enabling customers to do everything from monitoring soil conditions in vineyards or vibrations in historic buildings, to managing SCADA equipment remotely, to delivering messages to roadside traffic signs or photos from red light cameras. Building on a 20-year track record of over one million deployed AirLink devices, the next-generation AirLink LS300 gateway provides all the benefits of the AirLink product line, including network connectivity, rugged military-spec design and ALEOS™ embedded intelligence.

The AirLink LS300 combines the capabilities of the three previous AirLink gateways into one, with multiple interfaces (Ethernet, Serial, USB), and GPS location tracking to support a range of industrial, enterprise, and transportation applications. A free trial of AirVantage™ Management Service is included to make the deployment and management of the gateways simple and easy to scale. At 3 x 3.5 x 1.0 inches (76 mm x 90 mm x 25 mm) the gateway is about the size of a compact camera, which makes it practical to install in enclosed spaces like vehicles and vending machines.

 

“Our customers depend on AirLink gateways to quickly and reliably get their M2M deployments up and running,” said Emmanuel Walckenaer, Senior Vice President, Solutions and Services at Sierra Wireless. “The AirLink LS300 advances the product line even further, with feature improvements that make it flexible to use, as well as management capabilities that make them remarkably easy to configure and deploy. At the same time, we have retained the ruggedness and fail-safe connectivity that our customers expect and appreciate in their AirLink products.”

 

The AirLink LS300 comes with an intelligent set of configurable options that ensure it connects with equipment out of the box. Customers can set up their own security, networking, and routing parameters, activate GPS location tracking and generate reports without any programming. On board custom logic can also be added to the AirLink LS300 gateway using the ALEOS Application Framework to collect and analyse additional information from connected equipment, send the data to the AirVantage Enterprise Platform, and quickly build M2M applications using web-friendly APIs.

A free 30-day trial of Sierra Wireless AirVantage™ Management Service is included with every AirLink LS300 gateway to remotely configure, deploy, and monitor any size deployment. With AirVantage, customers can update firmware over-the-air, monitor the health of their AirLink gateways, and set up alerts for mission critical applications. This makes deployments of AirLink LS300 gateways quick, efficient, and scalable. The AirLink LS300 is now available for both the US and European markets.
