LTE wireless modules introduced
October 19, 2010 // Phil Ling
Sierra Wireless has launched a suite of new products designed for LTE networks, claimed to provide users wireless access at download speeds of up to 100Mbps and upload speeds up to 50 Mbps. It will support all major network technologies and offer compatibility with existing 2G and 3G services, to support national and international roaming worldwide.
There are three additions to the AirPrime MC Series of Intelligent Embedded Modules: the AirPrime MC7750, MC7700 and MC7710. The three variants offer different network technology and frequency band combinations, as well as support for both Linux and Windows. The AirPrime MC7750 module supports LTE, EV-DO and HSPA+ networks, while the AirPrime MC7700 and MC7710 modules support LTE and HSPA+ in different frequency bands.
The new AirPrime MC Series embedded modules allow manufacturers to take advantage of the latest generation of high-speed mobile networks, delivering up to 100Mbps download speeds and 50Mbps upload speeds, integrated GPS capabilities, and broader compatibility than previous technologies, says Sierra Wireless.
Support for Qualcomm's Gobi application programming interface (API) is included, which is expected to help streamline integration efforts, spur application development among third-party developers, and delivers greater flexibility to device manufacturers. Sierra Wireless stated it already has several design wins for these modules with multiple device manufacturers.
In addition, Sierra Wireless plans to introduce new AirCard USB modems and mobile hotspots in the first half of 2011 that also support the latest LTE network technologies and data rates. As with the embedded modules, the new AirCard products will be backward-compatible with existing 2G and 3G networks. Test samples are expected to be available to operators and network infrastructure partners by end of 2010.
