Mobile World Congress: Sierra Wireless Debuts Mobile Broadband Routers

Sierra Wireless (SWIR) has introduced the new AirLink Helix line of integrated 3G wireless routers. The Helix line is built on a 3G platform that uses ALEOS technology to provide reliable connectivity, routing features and remote management capabilities.

The first router in the Helix family will feature two Ethernet ports, two USB ports and an optional 802.11 b/g access point. The Helix product line is ideal for fixed, portable and mobile applications including point of sale, wireline replacement and backup, surveillance, public safety and transportation.

Helix routers can serve as a central hub of connectivity for mobile and portable workstations like those found in delivery trucks, ambulances and field service vehicles. They can also provide mobile hotspot access for public transportation vehicles, offering a fully IPSec compliant VPN for data security, dual diversity 3G antenna ports, and an optional 802.11b/g WiFi access point with WPA and WPA2 encryption to provide secure access for authorized multiple mobile computing platforms, both on board and within range of the vehicle.

Additionally, Helix routers provide a configurable WAN/LAN Ethernet port option and a built-in connection failover feature to ensure business continuity.

Helix routers will be commercially available later this year, offering a choice of HSPA or EV-DO Rev. A network technologies.
