Sierra Wireless HL Series
Sierra Wireless AirPrime® HL Series embedded modules have been selected by Parkeon, a global leader in parking, transit and urban mobility solutions, to enable cellular connectivity in smart parking deployments worldwide. 
 
Parkeon’s smart parking service allows people to conveniently pay for parking through their mobile phones, tablets, or computers via Parkeon’s Whoosh! app, and businesses within the vicinity of Parkeon’s smart parking kiosks are able to offer customized coupons and special deals, creating new revenue streams.
 
“Smarter parking management is a key requirement for many city managers,” said Dan Schieler, Senior Vice President, OEM Solutions for Sierra Wireless. 
 
“Municipalities today are trying to improve their operating efficiencies while also managing increasing levels of traffic. Our continued collaboration with Parkeon using the HL8548 and HL7588 LTE modules allows Parkeon to deliver cost-effective solutions that meet the varying needs of any smart city deployment.”
 
The HL Series modules provide scalability across 2G, 3G and 4G technologies, and allow for worldwide deployments by enabling a path to LPWA (Low Power Wide Area) network connectivity and low power consumption for solar-powered parking meters.
 
The next-generation smart parking kiosks from Parkeon are already being deployed in North America and Europe.
