Sierra Wireless have announced the world’s first ‘plug-and-play’ cellular modules and routers with pre-integrated global connectivity, IoT operation management and security. This new technology will dramatically reduce the time to launch IoT solutions, streamline operations and enable business model flexibility, thereby accelerating the global IoT economy.
These new cellular modules and routers enable customers to select a single pre-certified solution to instantaneously connect and remotely manage a fleet of IoT products and services across the globe, and over the lifetime of the deployment. This is a vast improvement to today’s practice of procuring devices, then sourcing multiple connectivity subscriptions and SIM cards for global coverage, and finally integrating disparate provisioning and management platforms.
“The complexity of deploying IoT solutions is the biggest challenge for businesses today,” said Philippe Guillemette, CTO, Sierra Wireless.
“Our new technology is much more than a SIM in a device, it’s an industry breakthrough that truly simplifies the IoT ecosystem. Our customers can focus on transforming their business and rely on Sierra Wireless to securely connect, monitor and collect data from their devices, at the right time, with the right SLA, and at the right cost.”
With built-in security from device, through the mobile network, to the cloud, Sierra Wireless’ innovative technology allows users to remotely provision and change connectivity providers over the air without ever physically accessing their devices. This reduces risk and gives companies the flexibility to develop and scale IoT applications and services over time and around the world.
