BARCELONA, Spain — Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ:SWIR) (TSX:SW), the leading provider of fully integrated device-to-cloud solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced that the industry’s first 5G mechanical module sample will be on display at Mobile World Congress. Based on the M.2 form factor, the connectorized AirPrime® module will enable original equipment manufacturers and system integrators requiring the highest possible speeds to deploy 5G on their mobile computing, networking and IoT platforms worldwide.

@SierraWireless unveils industry’s first #5G M.2 module sample with mmWave support at #MWC19. See it in the #GSMAInnovationCity, Hall 4, Stand 4A30.

Sierra Wireless’ 5G module will be on display in the GSMA Innovation City, Hall 4, Stand 4A30, as well as in partner stands, including AT&T Hall 4, Stand 4D40, Nokia Hall 3, Stand 3A10 and Qualcomm Hall 3, 3E10.

“Since launching the world’s first cellular embedded module in 1997, Sierra Wireless has a track record of being first to market with solutions for the latest wireless standards,” said Ross Gray, Vice President, Product Management, OEM Solutions, Sierra Wireless. “Our new 5G modules will allow our OEM customers to deploy on whatever 5G technology best fits their use case, including mmWave to reach multi-Gigabit speeds. Supporting global 5G deployments with a single module, we remain focused on technology leadership and developing innovative solutions that make wireless communications easier to integrate and securely scale.”

Sierra Wireless’ 5G M.2 mechanical module sample supports mmWave, sub 6 Ghz and LTE technologies, as defined by the 3GPP Release 15 standard. 5G is designed to co-exist with 4G and to enable new use cases beyond what is possible with prior technology, including:

  • Massive Machine Type Communication (mMTC) – enhances Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) sensor applications, such as metering, that are currently served by LTE-M and NB-IoT, the foundation of future 5G IoT;
  • Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) – enhances high-speed, high-bandwidth applications, such as networking, high-end video, gaming and augmented reality, with the long-term goal of achieving more than 20 Gbps download speeds; and
  • Ultra-Reliability and Low Latency Communication (URLLC) for use cases that require the five-nines quality of service (QoS) and close to one-millisecond-latency performance of 5G NR, which help support mission-critical applications, such as smart factories and vehicle-to-everything communications.

“Qualcomm Technologies and Sierra Wireless have been working closely together on multiple generations of cellular technology to enable companies worldwide to innovate and create new products using the latest wireless standards,” said Gautam Sheoran, Senior Director, Product Management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “As we have done with smartphones and mobile devices, we’re excited to collaborate with the ecosystem in bringing 5G to mobile computing, networking and many other segments using the Snapdragon X55 5G modem and our antenna modules with integrated RF transceiver, RF Font-End and antenna elements.”

Availability
Sierra Wireless AirPrime 5G modules based on the prototype will be available in 2019 to align with carrier network roll outs.
