VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ:SWIR) (TSX:SW), a leading provider of fully integrated end-to-end solutions for Internet of Things (IoT) applications, today announced availability of the high-performance AirLink® RV50X LTE-Advanced industrial gateway. Building on the success of the RV50, the RV50X is designed to connect critical infrastructure in utility, energy and smart city applications. It supports 21 LTE bands worldwide, providing high-speed connectivity across North America, Europe and Asia Pacific, while retaining the industry’s lowest power consumption. In addition, the RV50X’s LTE-Advanced carrier aggregation capabilities maintain high average data throughput, even at the cell edge or on congested cell sites.
“It operates with the same ultra-low power consumption as the RV50 and can be installed directly into existing infrastructure.”
“The RV50X is a truly global solution that supports an extensive range of LTE bands and, because of its advanced processing power, is ideal for customers that want to move intelligence to the network edge," said Jason Krause, Senior Vice President, Enterprise Solutions for Sierra Wireless. "It operates with the same ultra-low power consumption as the RV50 and can be installed directly into existing infrastructure."
For advanced edge-computing applications, the RV50X’s dual-core processor, combined with the ALEOS Application Framework (AAF), provide a powerful embedded programming environment. The application framework enables easy integration with existing equipment and sensors, and easy delivery of critical real-time data and information reliably and securely over LTE networks to the Sierra Wireless AirVantage® IoT Platform, or to other software applications and operational systems.
Industrial infrastructure is often unmanned, remote and critical to business operations. To ensure safety, security and uninterrupted operation, a remote monitoring and control system is essential for applications such as SCADA, on pipelines and in power distribution and intelligent traffic management systems. The AirLink Management Service (ALMS) provides powerful, cloud-based remote management for the RV50X, including over-the-air registration, configuration and software updates, as well as alerting and monitoring of key variables, such as signal strength, location, temperature and voltage. For customers requiring a network and device management application deployed on-premises in the enterprise data center, Sierra Wireless also offers the AirLink Mobility Manager (AMM) to remotely configure, manage and monitor RV50X gateways in the field.
The RV50X offers dual SIM support for automatic failover between carriers. It ships as a single product variant for North American and European networks and a single product variant for Asia Pacific, with support for Australia’s LTE Band 28, simplifying the ordering and inventory process and providing unmatched flexibility in managing deployments. Customers can take advantage of the best network coverage in remote areas without increasing complexity.
