Today's global businesses are rapidly undergoing a digital
transformation by connecting their equipment, offices and stores to
deliver service-oriented business models that increase efficiency,
revenue and customer satisfaction. AirLink LX40 is purpose-built to
enable this transformation, providing LTE and optional Wi-Fi
connectivity, combined with trusted AirLink networking, routing and
security. Sierra Wireless also provides a complete portfolio of AirLink
Network Management
tools, available in the cloud or on premises, for
remote monitoring, configuration and control of all connected AirLink
routers and gateways. With LX40, businesses can rapidly and confidently
deploy high-volume IoT applications that easily scale from tens to tens
of thousands of networking devices.

AirLink LX40 also enables IoT edge programmability, supporting the
field-proven ALEOS Application Framework for embedded applications, as
well as tightly integrated cloud services and APIs. These features,
combined with LTE-M/NB-IoT connectivity and a rich set of I/O options
for data acquisition and sensor aggregation, enable critical data to be
processed at the edge to drive application insight and create
event-driven situational awareness, while optimizing data transmission.
LTE-M/NB-IoT support also provides five to 10X enhanced coverage in
remote locations or buildings, while reducing monthly data plan costs by
up to 10X.

"Enterprises are gathering business intelligence by deploying IoT
solutions over a diverse range of locations and assets, from security
cameras in a warehouse to manufacturing equipment on a factory floor,"
said Jason Krause, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Enterprise
Solutions, Sierra Wireless. "AirLink LX40 represents the evolution of
our router portfolio, starting with the LX60, to bring the same secure
connectivity experience as our rugged performance portfolio, but in an
even more compact form factor that is optimized for enterprise IoT
applications."

AirLink LX40 is part of Sierra Wireless' new AirLink
Essential Series
of routers and gateways. It is available in two
variants: LTE-M/NB-IoT (up to 300 Kbps downlink) for enhanced coverage
and LTE Cat-4 (up to 150Mbps downlink) for higher throughput. The LX40
features a single Gigabit Ethernet port to provide primary LTE
connectivity, with support for PoE (Power-over-Ethernet), which further
simplifies installation. The available I/O port and built-in embedded
application framework allow for simple machine connectivity and edge
processing. The LTE Cat-4 variant is available with an optional Wi-Fi
feature, making it ideal as a hotspot or to access building Wi-Fi
infrastructure.

AirLink LX40 models are priced at $349 for LTE-M/NB-IoT, $399 for LTE
Cat-4 and $449 for LTE Cat-4 with Wi-Fi. LX40 LTE Cat-4 variants are
