Designed for use in the public safety, field service, and transportation industries, Sierra Wireless MP rugged modems are vehicle mounted and enable fast, consistent wide area wireless data communications with headquarters and dispatchers. In addition, they can provide vehicle location information with an integrated, independent GPS receiver, increasing security for employees and enabling asset tracking. The durability and reliability of Sierra Wireless MP modems have made them the wireless modem of choice for public safety agencies since the product line was introduced in 1995.
The MP 595 GPS provides connectivity to EV-DO Revision A networks, offering significantly faster data rates than previous models, with peaks of up to 3.1 Mbps on the downlink and up to 1.8 Mbps on the uplink. The faster data rates, particularly on the uplink, will improve the user experience for those who need to send large files such as photos or video over their wireless connection, enabling applications such as real-time video monitoring to improve the personal security of the vehicle operator. The MP 595 is also fully compatible with currently deployed EV-DO Release 0 networks and CDMA 1X networks, for use in areas where an EV-DO Revision A network is not yet available.
The MP 875 GPS is designed for use on HSDPA networks, offering connectivity in all three UMTS frequency bands (850/1900/2100 MHz) currently used worldwide, and supporting peak data speeds of up to 3.6 Mbps. For use in areas where an HSDPA or UMTS network is not yet available, the MP 875 is also fully compatible with EDGE and GPRS in all four frequency bands (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) used worldwide.
With MP Modem Manager software, available from Sierra Wireless, system administrators can control settings and upgrade firmware from a central location without taking units out of the field, avoiding costly downtime. In addition, both products carry a three-year platinum warranty with technical support.
The Sierra Wireless MP 595 GPS and MP 875 GPS rugged wireless modems are available for order directly from Sierra Wireless or though the company’s distributors and resellers. [April 16, 2007]
