Sierra Wireless showcases customer innovations and technology advances at Mobile World Congress 2019

February 20, 2019
Vancouver, Canada

Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ: SWIR) (TSX: SW), a leading provider of fully integrated device-to-cloud solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced that the company will showcase its IoT solutions at Mobile World Congress 2019 from February 25 – 28, at the Fira Gran Via Barcelona, Spain.

Sierra Wireless will exhibit in the GSMA Innovation City, Hall 4, Stand 4A30, demonstrating how the company is empowering customers to reimagine their future in a connected world. Exciting demos include:

  • Smart safety ring: Sierra Wireless and Nimb will showcase the world’s first cellular-connected safety ring, designed to make it easier than ever to call for help with just the push of a button and without a cellphone. Visitors can try on the ring and learn how a hidden panic button is used to send emergency alerts to friends and family members, first responders and nearby members of the Nimb community. Nimb’s smart safety ring is connected using Sierra Wireless’ Smart SIM and HL78 LPWA module and managed using the AirVantage® IoT platform, all delivered in one tightly integrated bundle.
  • Beverage inventory management: Sierra Wireless and HCL Technologies invite visitors to experience a connected beer keg that showcases how near real-time monitoring of critical data answers key questions, such as – has the keg been opened, is the beer cold enough, how much beer has been consumed, does the brewery know when a refill is needed and is the brewery invoicing only for the beer consumed – enabling an exact pour every time and the ability to replace the keg before customers are waiting. Enjoy a sample and find out how this solution works.

Sierra Wireless’ LPWA modules and gateways will also be showcased in the Deutsche Telekom booth 3M31 as part of their demonstration on the Deutsche Telekom IoT Solution Designer, an online tool for IoT developers, and in the Idemia booth 6H30 as part of LPWA demonstrations.

Thought Leadership Presentation Theatre
Sierra Wireless will host daily in-booth expert presentations on topics ranging from LPWA and the evolution of 4G/5G IoT to IoT security and data orchestration. Visitors will hear from Sierra Wireless leaders including Chief Technology Officer, Philippe Guillemette; Vice President and General Manager of IoT Solutions, Olivier Pauzet; and Director of Technology Partnership Development, Nicolas Damour.

4 Years From Now
Sierra Wireless will take part in 4 Years From Now (4YFN), held on February 25-27 at the Fira Montjuïc, Hall 8 in the Mobile IoT Experience Zone. Using Sierra Wireless’ mangOH Red open source industrial-grade platform, the company will illustrate how LTE-M and NB-IoT are accelerating applications in the Industrial IoT. Visitors will interact with a demo showcasing two devices communicating with each other using the cloud and LPWA connectivity. Sierra Wireless’ Director of Developer Programs, Thibault Cantegrel, will be on hand to explain how to get started using mangOH and Sierra Wireless’ LPWA modules to develop IoT applications. Attendees can enter for a chance to win a mangOH Red, set-up with Sierra Wireless’ LPWA WP7702 module and 100MB of data.
