VANCOUVER, British Columbia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ: SWIR) (TSX: SW), the leading provider of fully
integrated device-to-cloud solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT),
today announced that the company will showcase its solutions for first
responder communications and public safety at the International
Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Annual Conference and Exposition
2018, which takes place October 6 – 9, at the Orange County Convention
Center in Orlando, Florida.
Sierra Wireless will exhibit in booth #421, demonstrating how the
company is making police officers, communities and cities safer with:
Cloud-based advanced reporting and analytics platform: Sierra
Wireless will showcase its new AirLink®
Management Service – Advanced Reporting and Analytics (ALMS ARA)
solution, with new features that enable organizations to manage their
vehicle fleets using Sierra Wireless’ industry-leading AirLink
gateways, routers and cloud-based management platform by providing a
deeper level of actionable insight and analytics into vehicle use,
driver behavior and fleet maintenance. Visitors can watch as the ALMS
ARA monitors a live sample fleet and delivers real-time data and
reports to a dashboard, showing vehicle stops, engine faults, improper
driver behavior and more.
Industry’s first in-vehicle router certified and approved for use
on FirstNetTM: Sierra Wireless will
showcase its FirstNet Ready AirLink
MG90 In-Vehicle Router, which ensures that first responders stay
connected – anywhere, over any network. The MG90 provides secure,
reliable connectivity, giving police officers up-to-date information
about emergency situations, so they can respond with the knowledge
they need to act quickly and safely. The MG90 will create a Wi-Fi
hotspot to connect all laptops and tablets in the booth, including the
Panasonic Toughbook: Sierra Wireless will showcase the
Panasonic Toughbook, a rugged laptop designed for emergency
communications with Sierra Wireless embedded modules. Visitors will
see how the IoT provides reliable communication during
mission-critical situations to ensure public safety.
In-vehicle connectivity with dead reckoning: Sierra Wireless
will showcase its FirstNet Ready AirLink
MP70 In-Vehicle Router with inertial navigation, also known as
dead reckoning. Dead reckoning technology gives agencies
up-to-the-minute information on the location of police officers, even
in dead zones like urban canyons. With insight into the number and
exact location of police vehicles in any given area, agencies can more
quickly and effectively dispatch officers. Visitors can watch a
side-by-side comparison of vehicle tracking in an urban downtown
environment using GNSS only versus GNSS with dead-reckoning.
