Sierra Wireless, a global IoT solutions provider, has announced that its EM9190 5G New Radio (NR) embedded module was certified in January, and the MG90 5G - world’s first multi-network 5G vehicle router was certified in February, to operate on T-Mobile’s 5G network.
Jim Ryan, SVP Partnerships, Marketing & IoT Solutions, Sierra Wireless said that these certifications further demonstrate that when it comes to bringing 5G to the IoT, Sierra Wireless is leading the way. He also said that when you combine T-Mobile’s industry-leading 5G network with the EM9190 and MG90 5G’s industry-leading performance, robust security and industrial-grade design, along with Sierra Wireless’ decades of IoT experience and global presence, the answer to the question of which IoT solutions provider you should partner with as you map out your 5G future becomes clear – it’s Sierra Wireless.
Transforming IoT with 5G
5G’s higher data speeds, lower latency and higher device capacity are set to transform the IoT market, enabling OEMs, advanced electronic and other industrial companies to support enhanced mobile broadband, ultra-reliable, low-latency communication, and massive machine-type communication use cases that simply were not possible without 5G.
5G’s ability to support these new use cases is why a recent report by McKinsey and Company says: “As new use cases gain traction, it is expected that B2B 5G IoT unit sales will soar… in the B2B sphere, we expect total revenue for 5G IoT modules to increase from about USD 180 million in 2022 to almost USD 10 billion by 2030.”
Module Designed for Easy Integration, Private Networks, Global Connectivity
Based on the industry-standard M.2 form factor, the EM9190 is an industrial-grade module that enables OEMs, system integrators and other companies to easily integrate secure 5G connectivity into their products. Part of Sierra Wireless’ EM Series of modules, the EM9190 has been designed to connect to 5G networks around the world and also includes an embedded SIM (eSIM) based on GSMA’s embedded SIM specification, eUICC. This eSIM makes it easier for customers to switch networks anytime using carrier-specific profiles, for added IoT product deployment simplicity and flexibility.
With this certification, EM9190 customers can commercially deploy networking devices, computing devices, and other connected products on T-Mobile’s high speed and low latency 5G network for live video streaming, video security, high-definition cloud-based video gaming, extended reality, robotics, and other next generation IoT applications.
The world’s first Multi-Network 5G Vehicle Router
The AirLink MG90 5G, is the industry’s first multi-network 5G vehicle networking solution, providing public safety, public transit, utility, and other organizations the secure, always-on mobile connectivity they need for mission-critical first responder, field service, and transit applications.
The MG90 5G uses the T-Mobile certified Sierra Wireless EM9190 module and takes advantage of T-Mobile’s low band and mid band 5G spectrum to deliver customers broad coverage and high data speeds. Purpose-built for demanding high-speed multi-network vehicle needs, the AirLink MG90 5G delivers the best-in-class user experience, performance, and reliability users need with patented technology to deliver maximum performance and coverage.
The MG90 5G tackles the toughest challenges where 5G matters most, enabling high-definition applications like remote triage for paramedics, live video streaming for law enforcement, and improved Wi-Fi services for transit riders.
The EM9190 and MG90 5G are currently available globally from Sierra Wireless’ global network of partners.
