Sierra Wireless Launches Managed Service for FirstNet Devices
Thursday, November 21, 2019 | Comments

Sierra Wireless launched its AirLink managed network service with embedded First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) connectivity. The service delivers proactive FirstNet device management, 24/7/365 technical support and a purpose-built FirstNet Ready mobile router in a single package.

Sold as a subscription service, the offering allows public-safety agencies on tight budgets to implement FirstNet connectivity for critical communications, improve situational awareness capabilities and maintain their fleet of devices at peak performance for one monthly fee.

The service eliminates the complexity of maintaining a fleet of mobile devices and enables agencies to resolve device availability and issues up to 50% faster, Sierra Wireless said. The service also brings increased security to the end-to-end solution with Sierra Wireless secure private network architecture and by ensuring devices always have the latest security updates installed.

“By embedding FirstNet connectivity into the AirLink Managed Network Service, public-safety agencies can enjoy an end-to-end solution straight out of the box — accelerating their access to reliable, unthrottled connectivity and the advanced capabilities they need to help save lives,” said Bob Sloan, chief operating officer, FirstNet Program at AT&T. “This collaboration with Sierra Wireless not only gives public-safety agencies more ways to gain access to the FirstNet communications platform, but it’s also a cost-effective way to equip agencies with the critical tools they need and trust to help them accomplish their mission.”

The service includes AirLink routers, 24/7/365 technical support and security experience. The offering is sold on a three-year term and is available now.
