AirVantage Supported Hardware

The AirVantage is open to all types of hardware and uses standards-based protocols to make it easy for customers to connect their hardware.

Being flexible and open to all types of hardware is important but time-to-market is equally important. The Hardware Ready program is designed to provide customers the confidence that hardware pre-integrated with the AirVantage will reduce their integration efforts and speed their time to market.

Sierra Wireless Modules & Gateways

Sierra Wireless produces a wide range of modules and gateways designed to connect your machines. The combination of the hardware and the embedded software is pre-integrated into the platform making the task of collecting and transmitting data from the field much easier and providing applications to manage the deployed sierra wireless hardware.

Legato application lifecycle management

 

Modules such as the WP Series provide a number of data and device management integrations to speed your time-to-market.

  • IoT Data Collection: Data collected by embedded Legato applications is securely sent to the platform’s application enablement service to be consumed by customer applications or business and analytics systems.
  • Remote command and control: Legato applications can be controlled through the platform’s application enablement service allowing you to automate and control your remote machines.
  • Legato Application lifecycle management: Update Legato embedded applications over the air, adding new features or fixing issues using the platform’s 360º Operations web console or API.
  • Module over-the-air firmware updates: Keep your Sierra Wireless modules running the latest firmware with the platform’s OTA firmware update service.

OpenAT application lifecycle management

 

Modems such as the FXT and GL series offer programmability using the Open AT® Application Framework.

  • IoT Data Collection: Data collected by embedded OpenAT applications can be securely sent to the platform’s application enablement service to be consumed by customer applications or business and analytics systems.
  • Remote command and control: OpenAT applications can be controlled through the platform’s application enablement service allowing you to automate and control your remote machines.
  • OpenAT Application lifecycle management: Update OpenAT embedded applications over the air, adding new features or fixing issues using the platform’s 360º Operations web console or API.
  • Module over-the-air firmware updates: Many OpenAT modules can have their firmware remotely updated over the air.

AirPrime Essential Modules

 

Modules such as the HL series offer remote firmware manageability and the ability to collect and transmit data from your applications running on your host processor.

  • Module over-the-air firmware updates: Keep your Sierra Wireless modules running the latest firmware with the platform’s OTA firmware update service.
  • IoT Data Collection: Using MQTT and LW2M libraries, applications running on your host processor can collect and securely send data to the platform’s application enablement service to be consumed by customer applications or business and analytics systems.

AirLink Gateways

 

AirLink modems are highly configurable and can be scripted using the ALEOS Application Framework (AAF) to gather IoT data.

  • IoT Data Collection: Data collected by AAF scripts is securely sent to the platform’s application enablement service to be consumed by customer applications or business and analytics systems.
  • Remote command and control: AAF scripts can be controlled through the platform’s application enablement service allowing you to automate and control your remote machines.
  • AAF Script lifecycle management: Update AAF scripts over the air, adding new features or fixing issues using the platform’s 360º Operations web console or API.
  • Gateway over-the-air firmware updates: ALEOS firmware can be updated over the air using the 360º Operations web console or API.

3rd Party Hardware

The AirVantage is not only available to Sierra Wireless hardware. Many customers have mixed hardware in the field and use the platform across all of their hardware. We have chosen to use common, standards based protocols which makes integrating 3rd party hardware much easier.

IoT Data Integration

The application enablement services of the platform can ingest IoT data over a number of common protocols including MQTT, HTTP(s) and LWM2M. There are many clients available that can be placed on other hardware devices allowing them to communicate with the platform.

Device Management

The 360º Operations console allows remote management of hardware devices. LWM2M can be implemented on your 3rd party device allowing it to be managed by the platform.
