Sierra Wireless to offer certified 4G modules on Verizon, AT&T LTE networks

Sierra Wireless (Richmond, British Columbia, Canada), a wireless equipment manufacturer, on Tuesday announced that its embedded wireless modules have received technical approval for both AT&T and Verizon’s 4G LTE networks.

The Sierra Wireless AirPrime MC7700 embedded wireless module has received approval for the AT&T 4G LTE network, while the Sierra Wireless AirPrime MC7750 module received approval for the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network.

Receiving operator technical approval can accelerate time-to-market and reduce network certification costs for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), according to Sierra Wireless.

Because both modules share a common hardware and software interface, OEMs can provide a choice of network services, according to the company.

"We recognize that many of our OEM customers need to be able to provide their customers with options when it comes to network services," said Dan Schieler, senior vice president and general manager, Mobile Computing for Sierra Wireless. "OEMs can design and develop once and apply the work across devices for both networks."

Sierra Wireless AirPrime MC77XX Series embedded wireless modules deliver up to 100 Mbps download speeds and 50 Mbps upload speeds and integrated GPS capabilities, according to Sierra Wireless. Compatibility with existing 2G and 3G networks helps users stay connected no matter the location. Sierra Wireless embedded modules support Windows, Linux, and Android operating systems, says the company. The AirPrime MC7750 module also supports over-the-air device management (OTA-DM).

OEMs are using these capabilities to incorporate high-speed wireless connectivity into a variety of upcoming devices, including notebook, netbook, and tablet computers; connected consumer electronics products such as personal navigation devices; and home or enterprise-class routers, according to the company.
