Embedded Broadband Wireless Radios for 900 MHz HSPA Frequency Now Available from Sierra Wireless

Sierra Wireless ( NASDAQ: SWIR - TSX: SW ) introduced the MC8792V, the newest module added to the Company's growing line of embedded modules. Designed for HSPA networks, the MC8792V is the first Sierra Wireless embedded module to offer 900 MHz frequency band support, providing new and existing original equipment manufacturer (OEM) customers the ability to expand their product offering with this feature-rich mobile broadband solution.

The MC8792V embedded module can be integrated into a variety of OEM devices, including fixed wireless terminals, point-of-sale devices, as well as computers and ruggedized laptops, offering complete wireless data solutions over HSPA networks utilizing the 900, 1900, or 2100 MHz frequency bands. The MC8792V module includes GPS support and enables hardware devices to function as powerful communications tools with both voice and data capabilities. It offers a cost-effective solution for OEM customers, while maintaining high-end functionality and superior performance.

"An increasing number of network operators around the world are currently considering, or are already using the 900 MHz frequency range in their HSPA network deployments," said Trent Punnett, senior vice president, Marketing and Corporate Development, for Sierra Wireless. "The MC8792V caters to these companies, providing the same premium functionality and performance that is expected of Sierra Wireless embedded modules while enabling OEM customers to align themselves with other markets offering mobile broadband technology."

Sierra Wireless MC8792V

  • Tri-band HSPA/UMTS (900, 1900, and 2100 MHz) and quad-band support for EDGE/GPRS/GSM network access for roaming on high-speed networks worldwide
  • 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)
  • Voice capabilities, making it ideal for fixed wireless terminals and portable handheld devices that require the ability to make voice calls
  • Support for simultaneous voice and data usage
  • GPS-capable to support location-based services

Samples of the MC8792V are available to OEM customers for integration and testing. Volume shipments are expected to begin late in the fourth quarter, 2008.
