Sierra Wireless, a provider of mobile broadband networks, has launched the AirLink Raven XT, the new addition to its wireless AirLink line of Mobile and M2M devices.
The Raven XT is the new installment of the X Platform line of rugged and intelligent wireless data communications platforms, joining the Raven X and PinPoint X. Commercial shipments for North American CDMA and GSM networks are expected to begin in January 2008.
Built on the new X Platform architecture and processing environment, the Raven XT is smaller than previous models and offers a future-proof design enabling room for expansion. With a serial port interface and Class 1 Div 2 certification for use in hazardous environments, the Raven XT is ideally suited for a long list of industrial communication solutions, including energy production and distribution, electric utilities, automation and various infrastructure control and monitoring applications.
Justin Schmid, vice president of the Mobile and M2M group for Sierra Wireless, said: The Raven XT has all of the capabilities of the Raven and more. It provides our industrial and M2M customers with a robust processing environment that will enable new features to be added as market requirements evolve, while maintaining the reliability and versatility they have come to expect from the AirLink product line.
