Sierra Wireless has announced the Ready-to-Connect RC Series of embedded modules to simplify IoT development, reduce costs and accelerate time to market. The RC Series modules deliver all of the key elements needed for an IoT application—cellular module, integrated SIM that’s pre-connected to global mobile networks, IoT management platform and end-to-end security—in one integrated bundle that reduces total cost of ownership (TCO) by up to 40 percent.
Ross Gray, VP, Product Management, Sierra Wireless said: “Sierra Wireless has removed the integration and management complexity that stalls many IoT initiatives. Our RC Series allows companies to instantly connect their deployments anywhere in the world to our global network with best-in-class reliability and security. Our unique device-to-cloud bundled solutions will dramatically reduce total costs for customers, while allowing them to focus on their core business, rather than IoT deployment complexities.”
The RC Series modules integrate best-in-class connectivity, expanded smart edge processing options and end-to-end security. Sierra Wireless will offer a variety of bundled module and connectivity subscription services for different IoT applications, including an LTE Cat-4 solution ideal for industrial gateways, public safety, and enterprise applications, and an LTE Cat-1 solution ideal for transportation, fleet management, and access security applications. Similar to Sierra Wireless’ industry leading HL and WP Series, the RC Series will feature multiple air interfaces, including future LPWA modules. Monthly connectivity subscription plans for all RC Series module bundles can be tailored to meet the exact needs of specific use cases.
