AirLink LX40

Sierra Wireless | LTE IoT Router
The AirLink® LX40 is a compact LTE and LTE-M / NB-IoT router for IoT/M2M applications, offering “out-of-the box” connectivity that is simple to install, and easy to manage.
LX40 provides purpose-built, secure, managed LTE networking for applications such as Camera, Security, Point-of-Sale terminals and Smart Lockers. LX40 is also ideal for connecting industrial, remote data logging and sensing equipment in protected (indoor) locations, and enables processing of IoT data at the edge.
As part of the AirLink Essential series, the LX40 is designed to meet the environmental and performance requirements of these applications, while delivering superior reliability and uninterrupted operation in fixed, indoor and protected outdoor environments.
LX40 is available with optional Wi-Fi with Dual Band 802.11ac to provide an access point or to connect to local Wi-Fi networks.
