Sierra Wireless has announced that its industry-leading AirPrime® EM7455 embedded module has been selected to provide fast and reliable LTE-Advanced network connectivity in Lenovo products.
The AirPrime® EM7455 is the industry’s first embedded module to support LTE-Advanced – the latest 4G LTE standard aimed at improving network capacity, throughput, and operational efficiency. Designed for mobile computing and enterprise networking, the EM7455 represents the fourth generation of LTE modules from Sierra Wireless.
The module will support LTE-A connectivity in next-generation notebooks, tablets, and 2-in-1s.
“We have been integrating Sierra Wireless modules into our mobile products for more than 10 years and have always relied on the company to deliver leading edge cellular technologies that improve product performance,” said Luis Hernandez, Vice President and General Manager, ThinkPad at Lenovo.
The EM7455 offers unique features such as on-board mobile network switching, which can be beneficial in driving efficiency across customer deployments.
“The new AirPrime® EM7455 module allows OEM customers to deploy solutions for LTE-A networks in North America and Europe with a single device, making it easy for them to provision and change mobile networks,’ said Dan Schieler, Senior Vice President of OEM Solutions for Sierra Wireless.
The EM7455 is pre-certified for European and North American networks, and is commercially available today. As previously announced, Sierra Wireless will be launching the MC7455 (PCI Express MiniCard) for North American and European markets in 2016.
