Programmable Gateways and
Modems for M2M
The AirLink Fastrack Xtend Series programmable gateways and GL Series
data modems bring cellular connectivity and data services to any device.
You can either connect existing non-wireless applications as an external
retrofit, or create new wireless products.
Designed for M2M customers, these programmable gateways feature
standard interfaces USB and/or RS232) for use with a wide range of
industrial equipment.
Supporting the Sierra Wireless Software Suite, these ready-to-use
solutions can host your entire application software: Embed your C/C++ or
Lua application software directly on your FXT Series device to transform it
into your own standalone product, or customize your GL Series modem by
creating new AT commands to suit your needs.
AirVantage Management Services provide remote management and
monitoring of the FXT and GL Series. Managing your gateways with
AirVantage also allows you to remotely upgrade the firmware to remain
compatible with evolving networks.
AIRLINK FASTRACK XTEND GATEWAY
The AirLink Fastrack Xtend gateway provides a highly extendable platform
for the creation of a wide range of M2M solutions, with versions supporting
quad band (850/900/1850/1900) GSM/GPRS and EDGE, or tri-band
(2100/850/1900) HSxPA.
It features a slot for adding expansion cards, enabling you to add extra
functionalities of your choice. Use Sierra Wireless expansion cards or
develop your own – available cards include additional IOs, USB and GPS.
AIRLINK GL SERIES CELLULAR MODEMS
Among the world’s smallest ready-to-go cellular modems, the AirLink
GL6100 (DB9) and AirLink GL6110 (USB) plug into any device and are ready
to make the GSM/GPRS connection. They feature complete IP connectivity,
from basic TCP/IP blocks to advanced internet services.
Embedded SIM
All AirLink FXT Series and GL Series programmable gateways are available with an embedded SIM as an option.
Sierra Wireless’s embedded SIM solution removes the plastic from a conventional SIM card and embeds
the silicon die inside the programmable gateway, with the following benefits:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Resistance to extreme temperatures, vibration and humidity
Subscribers can choose their service provider and carrier
Subscription portability and security
Reduced size
Simplified logistics
Same warranty as the programmable gateway itself
Sierra Wireless
Software Suite
Cellular Software for M2M
Learning Center
The Sierra Wireless Software Suite is a comprehensive
embedded software platform designed and optimized for
M2M (machine-to-machine) communication. The software
suite lets you embed your application directly onto your
intelligent embedded module.
Sierra Wireless provides a professional education program
for developers using the Sierra Wireless Software Suite.
Enrolling in one of our courses will spark your creativity and
help you to speed development time. For companies wishing
to enroll a few participants, we provide scheduled training
course dates in Europe, North America and Asia on a regular
basis. If you have larger needs or just want a dedicated
tutoring session, we also offer on-site programs.
This embedded software allows your your AirLink FXT Series
programmable gateway or GL Series data modem to function
in a number of different ways:
• Simple modems: controlled via AT commands by a
main processor
• Intelligent modems: controlled via AT commands by
a main processor, but also providing some additional
customized services through a supplementary software
application
• Processors: the gateway is the single processor and is
hosting your standard ANSI C/C++ or Lua application as
well as providing the wireless connectivity
The Sierra Wireless Software Suite is owned, developed and
maintained by Sierra Wireless, allowing us to respond to your
needs faster than companies relying on third-party software.
The software suite includes:
• A pre-emptive multitasked event-based real-time
operating system (Open AT® OS)
• An integrated development environment built on Eclipse™
to develop, compile, download, test and debug your
application binary
• An extensive set of additional libraries (Plug-Ins)
which offer supplementary services over the core
Open AT® OS
• The firmware which manages the wireless communication
(GSM/GPRS/EDGE/HSPA) and an AT commands interface
in the programmable device
• A simple and intuitive Windows®-based discovery tool
which enables ultra-fast configuration of your device as
well as easy access to basic modem features
• PC drivers for Windows® XP/Vista (USB and CMUX)
• Embedded drivers for Windows® Mobile 5.x/6.x and
Windows® CE 6.0 (RIL/MUX and USB)
