Sierra Wireless announces the availability of its 5G module optimized for next-generation radio frequencies

DISH Wireless adopts Sierra Wireless EM92 Series 5G modules to connect to its new SMART 5G™ network via the N70 band

Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ: SWIR) (TSX: SW), a leading global provider of IoT solutions, today announced the availability of its next-generation 5G mobile broadband integrated modules, the RF-optimized EM92 series. (RF). This latest edition of the Sierra Wireless family will enable the most demanding, business-critical, industrial and networking use cases.

First announced in May 2021, the EM92 series 5G modules offer standard 3GPP Release 16 capabilities at an economical price and deliver secure high-speed connectivity with low latency worldwide. The EM92 is ideal for demanding high-speed applications such as high-definition live video, industrial IoT deployments like machine vision and drones, networking use cases that require reliable high-speed communications equivalent to wired technologies previous ones, and many other new IoT applications.

Being RF optimized, the modules reduce the complexity of 5G designs and improve global network coverage by supporting more global carrier bands, allowing OEMs, system integrators and other companies to easily integrate 5G connectivity in their products. Customers can make the most of 5G’s high speeds and ultra-low latency while accelerating time-to-market, future-proofing designs, and ensuring security for global deployment.

“For engineers and product managers who want to connect next-generation 5G products, the EM92 5G module has been designed to meet the most demanding and bandwidth-intensive mission-critical applications,” said Olivier Pauzet, vice president of product and IoT solutions, Sierra Wireless. “We’ve optimized the RF in this module to support multiple technologies allowing flexibility in design, and even more global carrier bands minimizing SKUs and streamlining logistics to enable easy, fast and cost-effective global deployment of next-generation 5G IoT applications It supports 5G and 4G TDD/FDD networks, with 68 bands for truly global coverage with a single SKU.

“Sierra Wireless is a trusted DISH partner,” said Stephen Bye, Chief Commercial Officer of DISH Wireless. “The new 5G EM92 series modules will support the N70 spectrum band and will be the first module certified for use on our 5G network. This partnership will further promote IoT innovation.

“Sierra Wireless’ 5G modules provide AVIWEST ​​with the fast, low-latency, and reliable 5G connectivity needed to deliver high-definition video of live global events such as the Olympics to broadcasters’ production facilities, enabling broadcasters to realize the cost, performance and simplicity of 5G-powered remote production,” said Ronan Poullaouec, CTO at AVIWEST.

EM Series Modules

The EM92 series of 5G modules aims to make 5G more affordable, while building on the success of the company’s EM91 series which includes both the new EM9190 5G mmWave/Sub-6/LTE (NR) radio and the EM9191 5G Sub-6/LTE NR standards-based M.2 modules. Both series of modules in Sierra Wireless’ integrated broadband portfolio deliver unprecedented network bandwidth and performance and have been designed to securely connect to 5G networks around the world. Security is designed in the forefront from the start of module development to minimize security risks, as well as additional time in certification requirements.

Transforming industries with 5G

5G’s higher data speeds and capacity, wider coverage and lower latency are transforming the IoT industry by enabling next-generation computing and edge-to-cloud applications, and enabling the expansion of the mobile ecosystem to new industries such as smart manufacturing, connected healthcare and smart cities.

By 2025, 5G networks are expected to cover a third of the world’s population and account for up to 1.2 billion connections according to the GSMA. The impact on the mobile industry and its customers will be profound. It’s no surprise, then, that the industry is investing heavily in 5G, with mobile operators expected to spend $1.1 trillion globally between 2020 and 2025 on mobile CAPEX, with around 80% on 5G networks.

Availablity

Sierra Wireless’ 5G EM92 series modules are available for sampling in May, with commercial availability expected in late Q3 2022.
