Sierra Wireless AirLink

AirLink Sierra Wireless

The Sierra Wireless AirLink is a line of easy-to-deploy cellular routers and gateways for a variety of applications, from vehicle networks to rugged infrastructure. Some models can handle harsh outdoor conditions, while others are built for maximum throughput. Every AirLink product can be remotely managed and configured through Sierra Wireless’s cloud-based management system.

Sierra Wireless MC Series Chips and Modules

Unlike the AirLink products, which are complete, pre-built devices, Sierra Wireless’s AirPrime MC series provide cellular connectivity to existing hardware. Using standards like PCI and USB, the MC series modules require little special configuration and can be deployed easily.

As with the AirLink line, the MC series can be configured easily to meet your company’s requirements. Given its form factor and deployment characteristics, MC series modules are a great fit for a variety of situations where standalone cellular gateways are not the right choice.

Development Tools: Boards, Kits, and Programmers

Before your company has its finished product ready for manufacturing, you’ll need development tools. While practically every electronics manufacturer provides development boards and chip programming tools, Sierra Wireless prioritises developer experience with their development hardware, software, documentation, and community.

Wireless Vehicle Router/GPS

These products can create a vehicle area network, connect to the vehicle’s OBD-II port, and integrate with other hardware over connections like RS232. Many of Sierra Wireless’s vehicle products integrate high-speed LTE or even 5G connectivity for all kinds of applications.
