Sierra Wireless Updates Embedded Module Lineup with New Modules for HSPA networks

Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ: SWIR - TSX: SW) has made two new additions to the company’s embedded module product line - the MC8790 and MC8790V embedded modules for HSPA networks. The Sierra Wireless MC8790 and MC8790V HSPA modules will offer a more cost-effective solution for OEM customers, while still providing the extensive feature set and high-end functionality that Sierra Wireless customers have come to expect from the company’s embedded modules.

The MC8790 is designed for OEMs integrating mobile broadband capabilities into notebook computers, fixed wireless terminals, or portable handheld devices for vertical markets. Tri-band HSPA support and receive diversity on all bands make the module globally compatible, enabling OEMs to concentrate development efforts on a single product for use in all global markets. The MC8790V adds voice calling capabilities, providing an option for OEMs that require simultaneous voice and data usage in their devices.

"OEM customers integrating mobile broadband connectivity into their devices need to be confident that the investment they make in integration and development is worthwhile," said Trent Punnett, senior vice president, Marketing and Corporate Development, for Sierra Wireless. "We understand their concerns, and with the introduction of the MC8790 and the MC8790V, we have focused efforts on bringing costs down, while continuing to provide the support OEM customers need to get wireless technology integrated into their devices and out to market as quickly as possible. We believe that this balance of cost, quality, and support is the best solution for our OEM customers."

Samples of the MC8790 are available for OEM customers for integration and testing. Shipments are expected to begin late in the second quarter. Samples of the MC8790V are expected to be available in the fourth quarter of this year.

Sierra Wireless MC8790 and MC8790V

-  Peak data speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps (megabits per second) on the downlink and 2.0 Mbps on the uplink (future upgradeable to 5.76 Mbps)

-  Tri-band HSPA/UMTS and quad-band support for EDGE/GPRS/GSM network access for roaming on high-speed networks worldwide

Sierra Wireless EMPOWERED
