Melbourne, Australia – April 17, 2015: M2M Connectivity and Sierra Wireless will be demonstrating the new AirPrime® HL7549 LTE embedded module supporting B3 (1800MHz), B7 (2600MHz) and B28 (700MHz). The HL7549 supports LTE Cat 4 aimed at improving network capacity, throughput, data speed, and operational cost-efficiency. In the growing Internet of Things (IoT) landscape as more devices use cellular networks, LTE advancements in capacity, latency and throughput will be of benefit to M2M and IoT communications.
Major carriers have switched on their 700MHz networks offering better coverage and faster speeds across Australia. The 700MHz spectrum is ideal for regional areas as it is able to travel longer geographic distances than higher frequency spectrum, and also provides better indoor coverage with its ability to travel through walls.
M2M Connectivity is a Sierra Wireless distributor in Australia and New Zealand and will be displaying Sierra Wireless products at the CONNECT EXPO on Stand no. 24 in Melbourne and CeBIT on Stand C26 in Sydney. A Sierra Wireless product showcase will be a centrepiece of the M2M/IoT Zone at CeBIT Stand C26.
