Sierra Wireless launches AirLink LX40 router for IoT and enterprise use cases
IoT News is a practical resource providing news, analysis and opinion on the burgeoning Internet of Things ecosystem, from standardisation, to business use cases, and development opportunities. We take the best research and put our own spin on it, report from the frontline of the industry, as well as feature contributions from companies at the heart of this revolution.

Sierra Wireless has introduced what it claims to be the industry’s most compact cellular router, called AirLink LX40, for the IoT.

The router comes in two variants: LTE-M/NB-IoT (up to 300 Kbps downlink) for enhanced coverage and LTE Cat-4 (up to 150Mbps downlink) for higher throughput. The LX40 supports data processing at the edge and is suitable for connecting cameras, smart lockers and point-of-sale terminals, as well as industrial remote data logging and sensing equipment in indoor or protected-outdoor locations.

Sierra also offers a comprehensive portfolio of AirLink Network Management tools that are available in the cloud or on premises, for remote monitoring, configuration and control of all connected AirLink routers and gateways. LX40 allows businesses to deploy high-volume IoT applications at a rate of knots and easily scale from tens to tens of thousands of networking devices. The device also allows IoT edge programmability, supporting the field-proven ALEOS Application Framework for embedded applications, as well as tightly integrated cloud services and APIs.

Back in June, Sierra Wireless, along with ARM, Bosch Sensortec, MediaTek, Orange, Qualcomm Technologies and Talon Communications, have also announced a mass-market availability of the mangOH Red open source hardware platform, which makes it easy for developers to prototype with any wired, or sensor technology based on their special IoT use case. The mangOH Red open source hardware platform includes multiple features ranging from a built-in Wi-Fi b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.2 BLE with an ARM Cortex-M4 core to provide real-time access to I/O, a built-in Bosch Sensortec accelerometer, gyroscope, temperature and pressure sensors, as well as light sensors and a 26-pin Raspberry Pi compatible connector.
