AirPrime HL Series - Compact form factor modules for industrial M2M applications

The Sierra Wireless AirPrime® HL Series of modules is the smallest, scalable, flexible solution in a compact and easy-to-integrate form factor that is completely interchangeable among 2G, 3G, and 4G (under development) technologies.

The AirPrime® HL Series modules is the smallest, scalable, flexible solution in a compact and easy-to-integrate form factor that is completely interchangeable among 2G, 3G, and 4G* technologies. Compact form factor, network scalability, and ready-to-use firmware upgrades make these modules ideal for industrial M2M solution designs where size and deployment longevity are important considerations.
(* 4G is in development)

Key Features & Benefits:

  • GSM/GPRS/EDGE/HSUPA/HSDPA/LTE
  • GNSS (GPS + GLONASS)
  • Dual SIM Dual Standby technology for maximum network connectivity
  • Smallest 2G to 4G form factor on the market
  • Use one design for your 2G, 3G, and 4G deployments
  • Device management made easy with ready-to-use firmware upgrades using AirVantage Management Service
  • Choose between LGA solder-down or snap-in integration, for supply-chain and lifecycle management requirements
