Around the world with two modules:
Faster data transmission with LTE-Advanced
More and more data is being transmitted between mobile applications.
For this reason, many mobile operators already support the improved LTE-Advanced standard.
Make your application fit for the future with Sierra Wireless modules in a standard form factor. The modules of the EM74xx and MC74xx series enable data communication up to 300 Mbps in global mobile networks.
Easy, quick, and flexible thanks to standard interfaces
The standardised PCI-Express MiniCard (MC series) and new M.2 (EM series) form factors are used as the standard interface for wireless modules in many computing applications such as embedded PCs or routers. With the right module, you can quickly and easily add wireless technology or do a flexible update to new technologies as needed.
Smaller, leaner, future-proof: M.2 form factor
The new M.2 form factor in particular – originally launched as the NGFF Next Generation Form Factor – offers an ideal platform for new future technologies. The EM modules are around 20 % smaller and also thinner than modules in PCI-Express MiniCard form factor. This enables devices to be made even more space-saving and compact.
Around the world with two modules: More LTE frequencies supported
Along with the achievable data rates, the international use of equipment is also increasingly important. Compared to previous solutions, the modules of the EM74 and MC74 series also support considerably more LTE frequencies, thus enabling reliable use in more regions. Global LTE coverage can be achieved with just two different module versions.
- EM7455 and MC7455
for use in America and Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA)
LTE-Advanced Band 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 12, 13, 20, 25, 26, 29, 30, 41
- EM7430 and MC7430
for use in Asia, Australia and the Pacific region (APAC)
LTE-Advanced Band 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 18, 19, 21, 28, 38, 39, 40, 41
Together, they are even more reliable: Carrier Aggregation
One of the key innovations in LTE-Advanced is "Carrier Aggregation". This function can bundle different radiochannels – even from different frequency bands. These combined channels offer an higher bandwidth and thus enable higher data rates. Moreover, the available channels can be used more efficiently via Carrier Aggregation, as the communication of all subscribers can be better distributed among the different channels.
At home everywhere: Drivers and software for Windows, Linux, Android
The modules of the EM and MC series can be simply installed in mobile computing applications with standard operating systems. Sierra Wireless offers drivers and software for Windows, Linux and Android. The modules can be put into operation immediately.
