AirLink® MG90 ensures secure, always-on, high performance mobile connectivity for mission-critical applications

 

Sierra Wireless, a leading provider of fully integrated end-to-end solutions for Internet of Things (IoT) applications, has announced availability of the AirLink® MG90, a high performance LTE-Advanced vehicle networking platform that provides secure, always-on mobile connectivity. The MG90 builds on the success of the oMG Mobile Gateway, which is the world’s most widely deployed multi-network solution for mission-critical first responder, field service and transit applications.

“Sierra Wireless is the market leader in volume shipments of cellular gateways and routers, with a large installed base of high-speed mobile gateways for first responders in the North American market,” said Sam Lucero, Senior Principal Analyst for IoT at IHS Markit. “Platforms like the MG90, with its focus on multi-network switching capability, are addressing a key customer need for robust, highly-available connectivity technology options.”   

Today’s mobile workforce needs to connect more technology in and around their vehicles than ever before, and these devices need to remain securely connected at all times, even as the vehicle moves from one coverage area to another. The MG90 provides:

  • The world’s fastest multi-network vehicle area network, with sub-second network changeover to support multiple high-bandwidth applications working simultaneously
  • Guaranteed, “always-on” connectivity with multiple simultaneous integrated WAN links, including:
    • Dual-LTE-Advanced
    • FirstNet Band 14 option
    • Gigabit Wi-Fi WAN
    • Gigabit Ethernet
    • Extensions to satellite and Land Mobile Radio (LMR)
  • Connected vehicle awareness with built-in vehicle-ready I/O, Bluetooth and Vehicle Telemetry interface for in-depth visibility of engine health and remote monitoring of axillary devices, such as light bars, sirens and gun racks
  • Mobile multi-network security using the AirLink Connection Manager (ACM) to retain static IP address across all wide area networks without interruption, consolidating the security for all technologies connected to the vehicle are network 
  • Advanced network management software using the AirLink Mobility Manager (AMM) for instant network insight and control, enabling centralized and remote management, monitoring and configuration, available as a cloud service or in the enterprise

The MG90’s multi-networking capability is optimized for the world’s most demanding wireless applications, such as in law enforcement vehicles, which host multiple systems (body worn cameras, laptop, electronic citation system, live digital video surveillance and automated license plate recognition systems) that all need to remain securely connected as the vehicle travels.

Josh Hearen, Deputy Sheriff, Brazos County Sheriff's Office, said: “Since we deployed the new AirLink MG90 in our test vehicle, we’ve been particularly impressed with its ability to connect to our two core networks - Verizon and FirstNet Band 14 - at any one time. Because it switches between both networks so quickly, the transition is invisible, resulting in almost no network downtime. When connected to the MG90, our officers are able to complete all of their research, paperwork and reporting remotely from the vehicle via their tough-books, increasing productivity and saving the department, and taxpayers, money and superfluous man hours.”

Felix Arenas, IT Analyst, Town of Paradise Valley, said: “For us, the biggest benefit of the AirLink® MG90 is reliability. It provides a constant and secure connection wherever it’s located. The MG90 has allowed us to connect more in-vehicle applications than ever before. All the data is secure, so our officers are able to transmit sensitive information from their vehicles.”

George Barlow Brown, Communications & IT Chief, New Orleans Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, said: “One of the main reasons we chose the AirLink® MG90 is because it’s FirstNet, Band 14 deployable. When the network is turned on, we won’t need to purchase new technology, saving considerable costs and time. We’ve also been very impressed by the MG90’s performance on our current Verizon network. It’s enabled us to be more informed, respond faster and be better equipped to manage an emergency.”
