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. The AirLink LX60 is purpose-built to enable this transformation, providing LTE connectivity out of the box, 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 the LX60, businesses can rapidly and confidently deploy high-volume IoT applications that easily scale from tens to tens of thousands of networking devices.

AirLink LX60 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 5 to 10X enhanced coverage in remote locations or buildings, while reducing ongoing airtime costs by up to 60 percent.

“With more than three million routers and gateways deployed, Sierra Wireless is a trusted partner for thousands of customers who rely on AirLink Networking Solutions to provide secure managed connectivity for mission-critical applications in some of the harshest operating conditions on the planet,” said Jason Krause, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Enterprise Solutions, Sierra Wireless. “The new LX60 provides the same connectivity experience and flexibility as our rugged performance portfolio, but in a new package optimized to meet commercial and enterprise IoT application requirements.”

The AirLink LX60 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. It features dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, LAN/WAN switchable to support primary and backup connectivity configurations, as well as RS-232, RS-485 and I/O ports, making it easy to connect existing machines without the need for added adapters and converters. The LTE Cat-4 variant is available with optional Wi-Fi and GNSS capabilities, making it ideal for connecting retail and commercial fleet applications.

“Our customers expect Wi-Fi service wherever they are—whether it’s in retail locations or taxis,” said Brian Anderson, VP Products at Colony Networks, a cloud-based provider of Wi-Fi solutions. “The LX60 with Wi-Fi and GNSS offers easy-to-deploy, secure, reliable cellular backhauled Wi-Fi in virtually any location. The device management and reporting capabilities from the AirLink Network Management systems integrate with our Wi-Fi policy management and analytics portal, providing customers control with actionable insights for the business.”

Pricing & Availability

AirLink LX60 models are priced at $449 for LTE-M/NB-IoT, $499 for LTE Cat-4 and $569 for LTE Cat-4 with Wi-Fi and GNSS. LX60 LTE Cat-4 variants are sampling now with commercial availability beginning in April 2018. LX60 LTE-M/NB-IoT samples will be available in May 2018. AirLink Networking Solutions are sold through Sierra Wireless’ authorized channel partners worldwide.
