AirLink RV50 Gateway Product Video

The AirLink® Raven RV50 gateway provides mission-critical LTE communication and remote monitoring for industrial IoT applications, including utilities, oil and gas, and infrastructure.

Many organizations rely on a geographically dispersed and remote network of assets and infrastructure to deliver their products and services to market. This critical infrastructure is vital to their business and needs to be continuously connected and monitored simply, reliably, and securely. The challenge is that these assets are typically remote. They are often deployed in unmanned locations that have no connection to either fixed line communications or power sources and require wireless communications backhaul that often operates via solar power.

So how have these challenges been addressed in the past? To date, organizations have addressed remote monitoring and management of their critical infrastructure in a number of ways including fiber-optic networks, private radio systems, and satellite communications. While these solutions have provided connectivity, they are typically expensive and often difficult to deploy and maintain. There are new technologies that provide more cost-effective solutions, and you will want to consider the following when you look for a solution that meets your unique network requirements. You’ll want industrial grade devices which have been purpose-built and certified for harsh and hazardous environments. Look for technology that offers broadband performance and one that will be supported well into the future. Until LTE is available everywhere, you’ll need a solution that can work effectively on 2G and 3G infrastructure. Consider a solution designed and optimized for low power consumption to protect the investment you have already made in power infrastructure. Look for a device that supports all major carriers to eliminate having to inventory multiple versions. You’ll want a solution which provides real-time remote management information to your IT and Operations teams. Finally, look for warranties, including support and software updates that reduce your total cost of ownership.

Introducing the AirLink Raven RV50 Industrial LTE gateway from the market leader in cellular gateways, Sierra Wireless. The Raven RV50 is industrial-grade and specifically designed for operations in challenging and hazardous environments. It is easy to install and is optimized for solar applications. LTE supports low latency polling and provides the opportunity for new broadband applications like video and motion sensors to be added to critical infrastructure. The Raven RV50 is the lowest power LTE gateway on the market. It offers power consumption of less than 1 watt while in idle, with the bandwidth and low latency inherent in LTE and is the first gateway on the market to offer a single product variant supporting all major North American network operators and one for international operators.

With RV50’s network operator switching, just insert the sim, and the gateway automatically configures itself. Coupled with the industry’s best in-class AirLink Management Service, Operations and IT can remotely manage, monitor, and troubleshoot an entire network of gateways, receive real-time notification of problems, and perform over-the-air device configuration and firmware updates. With an industry-leading warranty that includes software updates and hardware replacement, you can minimize your total cost of ownership. With over a million AirLink gateways deployed, Sierra Wireless delivers the reliable connectivity you need for your industrial applications. You can trust AirLink to keep your assets and infrastructures safe, secure, and operational 24/7 365 days a year. Want to learn more about the AirLink RV50? Go to for more information.
