Free guide: planning a scalable long-term wireless strategy

Free guide: planning a scalable long-term wireless strategy This free guide looks at the global deployment of wireless technology and the challenges involved, ensuring your solutions are scalable to suit multiple markets.

Operators in many markets will continue to invest in maintaining and upgrading 2G networks for the foreseeable future, however some markets have now begun to cap existing 2G services and are transitioning across to 3G and 4G technologies.

The guide discusses the best options for efficient and effective global deployment, including:

  • Strengths and weaknesses of 2G, 3G and 4G technologies
  • Considerations for scaling from 2G to 3G or 4G LTE
  • Future-proofing your products and solutions

Future-proof your designs using the AirPrime® HL Series from Sierra Wireless

Benefit from a system which is scalable from 2G to 3G to 4G LTE

The AirPrime® HL Series is the smallest, scalable module on the market today, and offers reliable M2M connectivity in one standard, compact form factor for use across 2G, 3G and 4G LTE.

The modules can be easily interchanged depending on the network and the ready-to-use firmware upgrades make them ideal for industrial M2M solution designs where size and deployment longevity are important considerations.

Benefits at a glance:

Flexible

  • Choose between innovative snap-in option or solder-down design
  • Reduced development costs
  • Faster time to market

Future-proof

  • Device management made easy with ready-to-use firmware upgrades

Compact

  • Smallest 2G to 4G form factor on the market today (22x23mm)

Scalable

  • One design, one size, one footprint across 2G, 3G, and 4G technologies
  • Ensures easy migration path

2G and 3G modules are available now, and a 4G module is due to launch this year.

Solder the module directly onto the board, or solder the socket to the board and gain the flexibility to swap modules at any time.
