Sierra Wireless launches industry’s lowest-power LTE industrial gateway
The Sierra Wireless AirLink Raven RV50 gateway provides mission-critical LTE communication and remote monitoring for industrial IoT applications, including utilities, oil and gas, and infrastructure.
Sierra Wireless have announced the launch of the AirLink Raven RV50 Gateway. The LTE successor to the market’s most widely deployed cellular gateway solution for energy and industrial applications, the AirLink Raven series.
The AirLink Raven RV50 has the lowest power consumption of any LTE industrial gateway, providing reliable connectivity for remote applications, even when solar panels are the only available source of power.
The Raven RV50 is an ideal migration path for customers to cost-effectively upgrade to LTE technology for their industrial IoT applications, while providing additional functionality to enable new solutions such as remote video surveillance,” said Jason Krause, Senior Vice President. “The RV50 consumes the same low level of power as our 2G and 3G Raven gateways, so it can be installed directly into existing infrastructure without the need to increase capacity.”
Industrial infrastructure is often unmanned, remote, and critical to business operations. To ensure safety, security, and uninterrupted operation, a remote monitoring and control system is essential for applications such as SCADA, on pipelines and in power distribution, and intelligent traffic management systems. The AirLink Management Service a cloud management solution ranked “best-in-class” by ABI Research—provides remote device management for the RV50, as well as alerting and monitoring of key variables such as signal strength, location, temperature and voltage.
Offering intelligence at the edge, the Raven RV50 includes the ALEOS Application Framework, a powerful embedded programming environment for on-board data gathering, real time data processing and alert generation. The application framework also enables the delivery of critical real-time data and information, reliably and securely over LTE networks, to the Sierra Wireless IoT Acceleration Platform or to other software applications and operational systems.
