Sierra Wireless has launched its next generation of 5G mobile broadband embedded modules, the EM92 Series. According to the company, these new 5G modules feature 3GPP Release 16 standard capabilities and provide secure connectivity worldwide at the highest possible speeds and with low latency for mobile computing, routers, gateways, industrial automation, and new IoT applications.
Adding to Sierra Wireless’ existing portfolio of EM Series modules, the new and advanced 5G EM92 Series is based on the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon X65 and X62 5G Modem-RF Systems.
With their faster speed, positioning technology for a wide range of indoor and outdoor use case requirements, and enhanced 5G NR Sub-6 carrier aggregation, the EM92 Series of modules enable next generation IoT applications such as live media streaming, video security, extended reality (XR), robotics and private networks.
Sierra Wireless’ EM91 Series – which includes both the EM9190 and EM9191 5G New Radio (NR) embedded modules – are certified to operate in the United States with the top 3 major U.S. carriers.
Both modules include an embedded SIM (eSIM) based on GSMA’s embedded SIM specification, eUICC. This eSIM enables customers to simplify their initial deployments on one carrier’s profile, and easily switch between networks without having to physically visit the device in the field for added IoT product deployment, and flexibility.
The EM9190 and EM9191 modules are now available globally from Sierra Wireless’ global network of partners. Integration samples of the EM92 Series are expected to be available at the end of 2021.
