Industrial Networking

For organizations that have highly distributed assets and critical infrastructure, remote, real-time monitoring, control and management can significantly enhance operational efficiency and effectiveness. In the industrial world, remaining operational 24/7/365 is imperative—even a single minute of downtime can adversely impact customers, operations and revenue, so deploying a secured, reliable and high performance IIoT solution is vital for any business. 

Sierra Wireless AirLink® industrial 2G, 3G, 4G LTE and LTE-Advanced routers and gateways deliver best-in-class connectivity, combined with intelligent management and monitoring of remote assets, machinery and critical infrastructure, including Smart Grid, Pipelines, Meters, Smart City Infrastructure, Industrial Equipment and Automation and Control Systems.

Industrial Technology
Industrial applications require reliable, purpose built and ruggedized solutions to deliver continual operation in often harsh environments, which is why our Industrial Networking Solutions harness these five core AirLink technologies.

Most Rugged Routers; Field-Proven LTE Connectivity

  • Certified as Class I Division 2, with die cast aluminum housing sealed to meet IP64 for resistance to dust and water ingress, AirLink routers provide a truly ruggedized solution for both fixed and mobile applications that require industrial-grade equipment.
  • Certified for operation on 21 LTE bands internationally, with over 2 million units deployed worldwide, AirLink routers deliver field proven, reliable LTE connectivity to remote locations and in hazardous environmental conditions.


Ultra-Low Power

  • AirLink routers offer best-in-class power consumption, and are specifically designed to operate on limited power sources—consuming less than 1 Watt in idle mode, they are ideal for battery and solar applications
  • For 2G/3G deployments migrating to LTE, AirLink routers work with existing power infrastructure, eliminating the need to invest in replacement equipment.
  • AirLink routers offer Standby Mode to protect power sources, by dropping power consumption to 53 mW, and can be triggered by timers, low voltage detection or I/O


Programmable; Intelligence at the Edge

  • AirLink routers provide programmability via the ALEOS Application Framework (AAF), to enable intelligence at the edge of the network
  • With Legato® Open Source Linux Platform, AirLink routers deliver a secure Linux-based embedded application environment to build efficient IoT systems
  • AirLink routers offer expandable connectivity with support for external interfaces including dual-Serial, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, BLE, Zigbee and built-in I/O
  • With support for legacy protocols (Modbus & DNP3), AirLink routers extend the total life of equipment deployed in today’s wireless networks


Advanced Network Management

  • AirLink Manager (AM) and AirLink Management Service (ALMS) enable remote, real-time mass configuration, updates and control over entire fleets of routers, available in both the cloud or in the enterprise data center
  • Both platforms deliver a continuous stream of rich, real-time  data, allowing users to analyze the behavior and parameters of hundreds of AirLink routers, connected devices and field applications as they occur
  • The AM enables users to create custom alerts and event triggers and offers on-demand or pre-scheduled historical reports for in-depth analysis and diagnostics


Leading-Edge Security

  • Offering up to 5 concurrent VPN sessions, AirLink routers enable secure communications to multiple back-end systems
  • AirLink routers provide remote authentication (RADIUS, TACACS+, LDAP) management, to allow the implementation of enterprise-grade systems to control access to devices in the field
  • AirLink routers ensure secure signing and authentication of software images offers end-to-end protection of the software upgrade process, protecting devices against unwanted malware
