Sierra Wireless AirLink™ devices now available with events reporting capabilities

New ALEOS™ Events Reporting Engine for PinPoint X and PinPoint XT devices offers comprehensive vehicle sensor monitoring and exception reporting
Vancouver (Canada)-September 10, 2008

Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ: SWIR - TSX: SW) today announced that ALEOS™ embedded intelligence now includes events reporting capabilities available with the AirLink™ PinPoint X and PinPoint XT mobile gateways. The ALEOS Events Reporting Engine provides PinPoint customers with real-time event status in the host vehicle, such as “speed limit threshold crossed,” “door ajar,” or “siren engaged.” It is highly customizable and can be remotely managed, controlled, and configured through AceWare™ remote management software, giving users the flexibility to tailor the type and number of data messages sent, when they are sent, and who receives them, through the use of programmed triggers that allow customers to set specific information requirements for their PinPoint X and PinPoint XT mobile gateways.

The ALEOS Events Reporting Engine improves the responsiveness and efficiency of PinPoint X and PinPoint XT mobile gateways, by providing time sensitive information instead of raw data for central processing. Clear, actionable information is provided as soon as it is available, to facilitate timely and accurate decision-making by end users or customer applications. In addition, the Events Reporting Engine allows customers to manage their data usage better by selecting precisely what data they want delivered, improving cost and processing efficiency. Critical event and status notifications can be delivered to multiple destinations using email, SMS and reporting servers.

“With the Events Reporting Engine, AirLink intelligent devices are now reporting real-time status and actionable event notifications, instead of just regularly scheduled raw data,” said Andrew Berman, senior vice president and general manager, Mobile and M2M for Sierra Wireless. “These enhanced capabilities ensure the time-sensitive information is presented in the right place, at the precise time needed for better decision making and overall system efficiency – a critical advantage for customers that rely on real-time data for their AVL, fleet management, mobile resource management, security, or public safety applications.”

Robust Intelligence and Device Management
ALEOS embedded intelligence is available exclusively on the Sierra Wireless line of AirLink products. Coupled with the AceWare suite of remote management tools, ALEOS lowers total cost of ownership by simplifying device setup, provisioning, control, management, and maintenance through extensive remote configuration and diagnostic capabilities.
