Wireless data solutions for fixed and mobile asset management
Whether remote commercial assets are fixed or mobile, pervasive wireless data
communications that leverage existing cellular networks can help streamline
operations, significantly improve data capture and management capabilities,
and reduce costs. Wireless asset management allows realization of significant
ROI in various applications through the integration of real-time data into the
enterprise for accurate monitoring, control, reporting, archiving and compliance.
Pervasive connectivity to fixed and remote assets can benefit a wide range of applications:
Mobile Data – Fleet Management, Asset Tracking, Public
Safety, Mobile Enterprise
Location tracking and information dissemination are two critical components of managing mobile assets. The line of AirLink location based products from Sierra Wireless coupled with 3rd party tracking applications enable reliable two-way command and field communication, as well as vehicle location information. Sample applications include trucking, towing, taxi/limousine services, police, fire/rescue, medical and social care services.
Utilities/Automation – Electric, Oil and Gas, Water
Utility companies manage remote assets spread over extensive areas. AirLink intelligent gateways enable telemetry and SCADA applications to help utility companies with a variety of applications, including infrastructure management, automated meter reading, real-time system monitoring, and transmission and distribution measurement and control. Sierra Wireless has partnered extensively with PLC and meter manufacturers to deliver reliable automation solutions.
Infrastructure – Homeland Security, Disaster Recovery,
Intelligent Transportation, Remote Monitoring
Safety and reliability are important factors for all networked infrastructure systems. AirLink rugged gateways enable secure, cost-effective, always-on data exchange between security points, as well as control centers and their remote devices. Applications include persistent monitoring of critical remote assets and systems, contaminant screening, real-time traffic updates, and condition reporting.
Financial – POS, ATM, and Kiosk Connectivity
Under pressure to reduce operating costs and improve customer service, many retailers and banks are looking to public wireless networks for reliable and flexible IP services. With a robust feature set and remote management capabilities, AirLink modems provide a compelling choice for these solutions.
Wireless Internet Connectivity - Cellular Ethernet Gateways
AirLink provides the perfect solution for networks, PCs, or any device requiring an Ethernet interface to high-speed cellular data networks. AirLink WWAN-enabled Ethernet gateway products are interoperable with standard Ethernet routers and residential gateways, so no special cabling or equipment is required.
