3G Ethernet gateway for highspeed wireless connectivity

Sierra Wireless : 23 October, 2008  (New Product)
The Airlink Raven XE provides high speed access to wireless networks through mobile handsets
Sierra Wireless has announced the availability of the AirLink Raven XE, a high-value 3G Ethernet gateway that provides powerful, intelligent, high speed wireless connectivity in a compact, cost effective package. Powered by ALEOS and a robust ARM9 processor, and equipped with a 10/100 Ethernet port, the Raven XE 3G Ethernet gateway is ideally suited for applications requiring 24/7 remote monitoring and the capability to quickly send and receive large files such as photos or interactive media content.

"The Raven XE has been developed to meet the needs of customers that require a powerful, high-speed wireless connection for their M2M and portable transaction processing applications in a more compact form factor," said Justin Schmid, vice president of the Sierra Wireless Mobile and M2M group. "The power and versatility of the Raven XE Ethernet gateway, along with its compact design, make it a compelling option for either internal or external system integration, while its cost efficiency allows it to be a practical solution for wider scale deployments."

The Raven XE provides a high-speed Ethernet interface and 3G-optimized architecture, making it ideal for various commercial mobile or portable network connectivity applications, such as point of sale kiosks, digital signage and automated teller machines, and its small form factor enables integration within small enclosures. Its rugged design and aluminium enclosure make it equally suited for remote industrial and M2M deployments, and a mini-USB port increases its versatility by simplifying diagnostics and updates. Raven XE is also equipped with IPSec VPN and GRE tunnelling, protecting data from unauthorized access.

The Raven XE uses the power of ALEOS, the embedded intelligence available exclusively on the Sierra Wireless line of AirLink products. ALEOS offers seamless integration with legacy equipment, thanks to a comprehensive set of embedded protocols. Coupled with the AceWare suite of remote management tools, ALEOS simplifies device setup and provisioning and provides customers with comprehensive remote configuration and diagnostic capabilities, lowering the total cost of ownership.

The accompanying AceWare suite of device management and configuration tools has also been enhanced to support the new security features of ALEOS. This allows Raven XE users to easily configure the IPSec and GRE parameters of the Raven XE remotely and in real-time.

The Raven XE provides enterprise customers with round-the-clock unmanned operation of remote assets and high-speed broadband connectivity for wireless transaction processing and data transfer. Key features include:.

* ALEOS embedded intelligence.
* AceWare remote monitoring, control, management and configuration utilities.
* IPSec VPN and GRE tunnelling to protect data from unauthorized access.
