Vancouver, British Columbia and Plano, Texas -June 13, 2005
Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ: SWIR - TSX: SW) and MP2 Solutions today announced that MP2 Solutions has selected the Sierra Wireless EM3420 embedded module to provide wide area wireless connectivity to CDMA 1X networks for the MRT300 Mobile Retail Terminal. Customers using the MRT300 device can scan, authorize credit card payments, and check inventory wirelessly in real time via the EM3420 embedded module's wireless wide area network (WWAN) connection. Users can also print customer receipts and reports, making the product ideal for retail and service companies that need to conduct complete, secure, on-site or mobile payment transactions.

The MRT300 is a rugged device that combines WWAN, WLAN, barcode scanner, printer and a magnetic stripe reader, running on Microsoft's Windows Mobile operating system for Pocket PC. The extensive functionality of the MRT300 sets the device apart from traditional wireless terminals and PDAs - with a continuous battery life of 10 to 12 hours, customers using the device can check inventory, take payments, deliver goods, print receipts and send data back to headquarters.

"The MRT300 mobile point-of-sale terminal is a prime example of the value wireless data connections can offer to enterprises in industries ranging from retail, to field services, to transportation" said Dan Schieler, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales for Sierra Wireless. "With the MRT300 device and the wireless data connection powered by the EM3420 embedded module, businesses can offer their customers better on-site service, while streamlining their own payment processing and record-keeping procedures."

"Our customers rely on our products for some of the most critical functions in their businesses, including cash flow and inventory management, and they expect solid, reliable performance," said Todd J. Carey, CEO, for MP2 Solutions. "Sierra Wireless products are highly regarded for their reliable performance, and integrating the Sierra Wireless EM3420 module into the MRT300 device helps us to deliver a product that consistently meets our customers' expectations."
