VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ:SWIR) (TSX:SW) today announced the industry’s first integrated service platform that combines cloud, Internet of Things (IoT) hardware, and managed connectivity services to support worldwide deployments. The new IoT Acceleration Platform is unique in that it provides global multi-operator coverage by combining Sierra Wireless and third-party network operator SIMs, all managed from a single unified connectivity platform.

“Our fully integrated IoT Acceleration Platform is designed to empower customer innovation and get IoT solutions to market faster with the ability to scale and grow quickly.”

The new IoT Acceleration Platform from Sierra Wireless also provides connectivity to Google Cloud Platform, giving customers the benefits of using Google BigQuery, Google’s analytical service, with data collected from connected devices.

Sierra Wireless can now provide customers with a comprehensive end-to-end solution including the hardware, AirVantage® cloud platform, and managed connectivity – vastly simplifying the sourcing, management, and administration of multi-region IoT deployments.

“Reducing the complexity in building and deploying IoT connectivity solutions is critical for our customers in getting their products and services to market quickly, and delivering real value to their organizations,” said Emmanuel Walckenaer, Senior Vice President, Cloud and Connectivity Services for Sierra Wireless. “Our fully integrated IoT Acceleration Platform is designed to empower customer innovation and get IoT solutions to market faster with the ability to scale and grow quickly.”

Integration of Google Cloud Platform makes it quicker and easier to get value from data

In addition to the integration of connectivity, Sierra Wireless has also natively connected AirVantage to Google Cloud Platform, a set of modular cloud-based services that support the creation of anything from simple websites to complex applications.

Customers can collect and store their sensor data in Google Cloud Platform and use the tools provided in the platform to build custom analytics, big data, or IoT applications, enabling them to leverage the data collected from the devices and their connected assets in a broader context – increasing its value.

For organizations already operating on Google Cloud Platform, this makes integration into other applications and services quick and easy. With the platform pre-connected, the process of doing this is vastly simplified and the resulting applications are flexible and scalable to support future growth.

Sierra Wireless will showcase the customer benefits of integrating Google analytics tools with the IoT Acceleration Platform at CTIA Super Mobility Week, September 9 to 11 in Las Vegas. To learn more, visit the Sierra Wireless stand at #5632 in the M2M Zone.
