Sierra Wireless announces mass production of ready-to-connect cellular modules

Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ: SWIR) (TSX: SW), the provider of fully integrated device-to-cloud solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), has announced its award-winning Ready-to-Connect solutions are in mass production, the company said.

Ready-to-Connect delivers all of the key elements needed for an IoT application–cellular module, integrated SIM that´s pre-connected to global mobile networks and IoT platform for device and subscription management and simplified operations–in one integrated bundle.

Research by analyst firm Frost & Sullivan found that many IoT deployments can take more than 18 months to move from concept to commercial launch. With Ready-to-Connect, companies can innovate in a third of the time, while also simplifying operations and reducing product and logistic costs by up to USD 500,000/year*. Ready-to-Connect eliminates the need to manage different vendors and platforms, as well as the complex pairing of multiple components that can lead to security vulnerabilities.

Ready-to-Connect removes the main barriers to a successful IoT deployment. It uses the multi-operator Sierra Wireless Smart SIM and Connectivity Services to provide reliable, global IoT connectivity that allows businesses to use the same solution wherever they want to deploy. The AirVantage® IoT Platform manages all SIMs, subscriptions and devices out of the box, through a single interface.
