Industry’s first 5G M.2 module sample with mmWave support

5G connectorized module based on Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X55 5G modem and RF Front-End solutions demonstrates Sierra Wireless’ continued leadership in enabling future IoT applications.
Based on the M.2 form factor, the connectorized AirPrime® module will enable original equipment manufacturers and system integrators requiring the highest possible speeds to deploy 5G on their mobile computing, networking and IoT platforms worldwide.

Sierra Wireless’ 5G M.2 mechanical module sample supports mmWave, sub 6 Ghz and LTE technologies, as defined by the 3GPP Release 15 standard. 5G is designed to co-exist with 4G and to enable new use cases beyond what is possible with prior technology.

  • Massive Machine Type Communication (mMTC) – enhances Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) sensor applications, such as metering, that are currently served by LTE-M and NB-IoT, the foundation of future 5G IoT;
  • Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) – enhances high-speed, high-bandwidth applications, such as networking, high-end video, gaming and augmented reality, with the long-term goal of achieving more than 20 Gbps download speeds;
  • Ultra-Reliability and Low Latency Communication (URLLC) for use cases that require the five-nines quality of service (QoS) and close to one-millisecond-latency performance of 5G NR, which help support mission-critical applications, such as smart factories and vehicle-to-everything communications.
